Bosch laser measures distance, angles

Bosch Measuring Tools has introduced the GLM 80, the first combination laser distance and angle measurer powered by lithium-ion battery. It incorporates a number of new features, including the ability to accurately measure heights and distances with only one click of a button.

The integrated two-a xis tilt sensor enables the GLM 80 to read angles when the unit is handled either horizontally or vertically. Its indirect measurement mode is ideal for taking measurements in inaccessible spots. Other measurement modes include length, area, volume, continuous, minimum, maximum, multisurface area and multiple indirect measurements.

The GLM 80 has four different reference points — front of unit, back of unit, tripod mount and corner pin. It also includes an integrated timer that can be used with all measurement modes to ensure greater accuracy. With enhanced memory, the GLM 80 can store up to 20 measurements, helpful if a specific measurement must be added to others or kept for constant reference.

For added versatility, the GLM 80 can be placed inside the R 60 digital level attachment, transforming it into a digital level.
