Disto Error Codes

Error  Code
Description
Solution
154
Transverse tilt >20°
Hold the instrument without any transverse tilt
156
Transverse tilt > 10°
Hold the instrument without any transverse tilt
160
Main tilt direction, angle too high (>45°)
Measure angle up to +/- 45°
162
The calibration has not been
accomplished on a leveled
surface and the calibration value
is respecitvely within an ineligible
area.
Calibrate the device on an absolute
horizontal leveled surface.
203
Wrong measuring sequence for Pythagoras measurements
Measure in correct sequence
204
Calculation error
Repeat procedure
206
No endpiece detection
Attach the endpiece properly. If error still occurs, replace the endpiece

Lanyard / Hand Loop Installation

All Leica Disto’s are included with a lanyard / hand-loop to prevent an accidental drop.

To install the lanyard:

lanyard-install-holes

1. Locate the 2 small holes near the base on left or right side (some units have these on both sides).

2. Squeeze the small loop at the end of the lanyard and push it into one of the holes. You may need to work it back-and-forth slightly until it comes out the second hole. It is sometimes easier if you can remove the battery door.

3. Loop the entire lanyard through the small loop and pull tight.

measuring height width area in picture

Measure In Picture

Determine the width, height, area or even the diameter of an object. One measurement at right angles to the object is all it takes. Then the desired dimension is marked using two arrows in the picture and the measured value appears in the display. In addition to the zoom stages on the Point-finder, an overview camera is available for large objects.The camera function on the DISTO D810 touch can be used to create pictures or screen shots for record purposes, which can then be downloaded to a computer via the USB interface. Thus no details about the measured target points need be lost.

measure-in-picture-diameter

Diameter measurement in picture

Measure to the center of the object with the device. The object appears in the display and then you can mark the diameter with the arrows. The display then shows the result. This function is ideal, for example, for determining the diameter of a tree trunk.

measuring height width area in picture

Measuring widths, heights and areas in picture

You measure at right angles to the object. The object appears in the display and then you can mark the required dimension with the arrows. The display then shows the value. In this way you can, for example, measure the width, height and area of an advertising board using only one distance measurement.

Digital Pointfinder

The digital Point-finder, with its multiple zoom levels and large color display, makes targeting easier over long distances. The high-resolution screen ensures a crystal-clear image, allowing you to measure perfectly, even in bright sunlight.

Measure in picture accuracy

The accuracy of the measurement depends on how the function is used. Best results can be achieved when the measuring object is displayed maximum size on the DISTO screen. In such case the accuracy is below 1% of the measured object. This applies for width, area and diameter measurements.
