Fluke Corporation, electronic test tools and software for measuring and condition monitoring provider, has launched compact laser distance meter, the 417D. This speeds up layouts with instant, one-button measurements up to 131 feet (40 meters) and an accuracy of 0.08 inches (± 2 mm). This ultra-portable meter increases measurement efficiency while maximizing the reliability of measurements by reducing estimation errors, saving time and money.
It is designed for indoor and outdoor applications. The palm-sized device features a bright laser for clearly tracking targets, even at long distances or in hard-to-reach spots. The 417D can survive a one- meter drop and is rated IP54 for dust and water resistance, making it ideal for even the harshest work sites.
Tracy Montanez, Product Manager, Fluke Corporation, said, “Our customers who have seen the 417D laser distance meter, love it. It has the necessary features to get the job done right, the first time. When your tool belt is already loaded with essential tools, the 417D takes up minimal space and can easily fit into your pocket.”
The 417D features a large two-line illuminated LCD screen for easy viewing of measurements and can deliver continuous measurements as well as quick calculations of area (square footage). Due to the automatic shut-off feature, the meter lasts up to 3,000 measurements.
