Fluke 414D 419D and 424D laser distance meters accelerate measurements
By Anthony Capkun
July 25, 2012 – Fluke Corp. says its 414D, 419D and 424D rugged laser distance meters deliver accurate, point-and-click measurements up to 100 metres (330 ft), and are suitable for a range of building/construction, industrial, maintenance and professional services applications. New features available in these meters include an integrated compass that provides a ‘heading’ for distance measurement; an inclination sensor that assists with height tracking, levelling and indirect horizontal distance measurement when line-of-sight is blocked; and automatic endpiece correction in which a built-in sensor detects the position of the bracket and automatically changes the reference point when measuring from an edge or corner. The distance meters are available at suggested list prices of $149 (414D) through $449 (424D).
