Leica Geosystems Announces the Leica Sprinter 50, the One-button Electronic Digital Level

Also announced are the Leica Sprinter 150/150M and 250M for Advanced Leveling 

(Norcross, Ga., 6 March, 2008) The Leica Sprinter series is a family of multifunctional leveling tools for users who rely on a compact and lightweight, easy to use, and error free electronic level. The Leica Sprinter 50 sets new standards in user friendliness – it is even easier to use than a conventional automatic level!

Simple leveling, anywhere, for anyone – with just one button
The Leica Sprinter 50 is the perfect tool for daily tasks and basic work on the construction site. The user simply aims, focuses on the provided bar code staff, and measures by pressing a single button. The data (elevation AND distance) is displayed digitally on a large LCD. Eliminate incorrect readings and greatly reduce chances for transposition errors.  A built-in tilt sensor prevents the system from measuring outside the compensator range. Accuracy of 2.0 mm deviation per 1 km double run is obtained at the push of a button.

Leica Sprinter 150/150M and 250M: Advanced opportunities
For more complex construction tasks, Leica Geosystems announces the enhanced Leica Sprinter 150/150M and 250M family. The Sprinter 150 automatically determines delta height and a host of other functions to cover most applications.

The Leica Sprinter 150M and 250M, with built in data storage, are the perfect tools for advanced construction leveling tasks. They can store up to 1,000 measurements, and the user can download and transfer these, for further calculations to a PC with Excel easier than ever before via USB.

Useful OnBoard Software and multilingual functionality
The Leica Sprinter OnBoard Software, with functionalities such as Delta Height, Line Leveling and Cut & Fill as well as monitoring, facilitates all leveling jobs significantly. The 0.7 mm accuracy of the 250M using a special staff and the monitoring program allow precise control and accurate measurements.

The Leica Sprinter 150/150M and 250M series have multiple languages onboard. This allows the user to choose the preferred language – simply and with only one keystroke, for improved efficiency and convenience.
