    Pressing the Image alternative button again takes you directly back to the "Measure distance" function.

Basic settings

Setting the reference

The "Reference" setting influences whether the length of the product is taken into account in measurement. You can select either of two references:
• Top edge of the laser range meter (product length is excluded)
• Bottom edge of the laser range meter (product length is included)
The default setting is bottom edge of the laser range meter.
  • Press the Image alternative button and hold it down for 2 seconds to toggle the reference setting.
    • The reference is changed.
    The reference is reset to the default setting when you switch the device off.

Setting the unit of measure

The unit of measure cycles through the following:
The default unit of measure can vary, depending on the country.
Image alternative
  1. Simultaneously press the Image alternative and Image alternative buttons and hold them down for 2 seconds.
    • The unit of measure is changed.
  2. Repeat step 1 until the unit of measure you want is set.
    The setting you select is saved as the new default setting.

Switching the acoustic signal on or off

  • Simultaneously press the Image alternative and Image alternative buttons and hold them down for 2 seconds.
    The setting you select is saved as the new default setting.

Using the contact spike

The contact spike makes the laser range meter easier to aim when you are targeting a fixed position.
Measurements from awkward area are easier, for example when you have to measure a diagonal from a corner.
Image alternative
  1. Flip the contact spike open through 90°.
    • The contact spike can be used as an end stop.
  2. Flip the contact spike open through 180°.
    • The reference is changed automatically.

Measuring using a target plate

Use the target plate to measure distance under the following unfavorable conditions:
  • The wall is not sufficiently reflective due to the type of surface.
  • The target point is not on a surface.
  • The distance to be measured is too long.
  • The light conditions are unfavorable (bright sunshine).
When measuring with a target plate, add 2 mm (1/16 in) to the measured distance.
