Q1: How does a laser rangefinder work?
A1: The Laser Rangefinder uses a laser beam aimed at the target to determine its distance. A laser is beamed to the target, like the pin, and reflects back to the rangefinder. The time in which it took the laser to reflect back to the device is used to calculate the distance.
Q2: What is a laser rangefinder?
A2: LRF or a Laser Range Finder is a device used to measure distances. Most laser rangefinders operate on the time of flight principle by sending a laser pulse in a narrow beam towards the object and measuring the time taken by the pulse to be reflected off the target and returned to the sender.
Q3: What is the range of a laser rangefinder?
A3: Laser rangefinders let you take measurements both indoors and outdoors with 1 mm per kilometre accuracy. Professional construction laser rangefinders can measure distance of up to approximately 150 metres. Long-range rangefinders can measure distance of up to 1500 metres.
Tips: Laser rangefinder troubleshooting
The field of view is dark and nothing can be seen:
- If your eye is too close to the eyepiece of a digital laser rangefinder, your field of view will be dark.
- Keep your eyes away from the eyepiece and look for a stable view. In most cases, approximately 10mm to 15mm is appropriate.
When the power is off, the field of view is shaking:
- For rangefinders equipped with the STABILIZED function, the field of view will be shaking when the power is turned off.
- It is a phenomenon caused by the internal structure, not a failure. When the power is turned on, the shaking stops.
The actual distance indicator does not blink:
- Models equipped with this feature allow the user to turn the mode ON/OFF of the Actual distance indicator.
- Please change the setting from OFF to ON according to the instruction manual of laser rangefinder.
- It blinks only when the measurement display mode is D mode (actual distance).
