Disto X3

Leica Geosystems

Part Num: 850834

Rugged design for tough conditions

The Leica Disto X3 casing and keypad are protected against dust and water up to IP 65 standards. This means that the X3 can be cleaned under running water.

Visual stake-out - A know function re-invented

Speed up the stake-out workflow significantly with measurements continuously updating on the display to indicate exactly where you are. Easily detect stake-out position with the dynamic marks on the display.

Extra Long Multi-Function End Piece

The Disto X3 has an 80% longer end-piece - offering additional measurement possibilities and reducing restrictions for window and blind measurements. The instrument detects the end-piece automatically and adjusts the zero point accordingly.

Bluetooth SmartWith Bluetooth Smart data is transferred directly to many different apps. 

The new Disto Plan app allows you to create floor plans and sketches quickly just by recording measurements and the direction you turn (clockwise or counter-clockwise). This significantly improves the workflow of creating plans. The documents can then be sent by e-mail or saved on the mobile device.

Proven Accuracy and Repeatability

The Disto D2 by Leica Geosystems is compliant to ISO 16331-1, which is an industry standard developed by an international committee. The range and accuracy of laser distance meters depend greatly on light conditions and how reflective the targeted surface is.

Many distance meters can achieve great results in a controlled laboratory environment, but let's face it, most measuring does not take place in the ideal environment. Leica worked with external experts to help develop and create a standard by which laser distance meters can be tested and compared with each other.

So, what does all of that mean? The Disto D2 will perform to the specifications listed in real life working conditions.

Min Max Measurement
Minimum/Maximum Measurement
In Min/Max mode, you "sweep" the laser point into a corner. The longest measurement is recorded. Very useful for accurate diagonal room or window/door measurements.
Area and Volume
Area & Volume Measurement
To get the area of a ceiling, floor, wall, or the volume of a room, you only need two or three measurements. No need to write down the individual values! The precise result is calculated automatically and shown on the display.
Triangle Function
Room Angle / Triangle
The triangle function helps you to calculate, quickly and efficiently, the area of a multi-cornered room. Divide the room into imaginary triangles. Using only three measurements, determine the area of each triangle, which you can add up cumulatively. Pressing a key gives you a detailed display of the room angle, so that you can quickly check whether it is a right angle.
Painter Function
With this function you can determine the total wall area of a room without having to note down any intermediate results. Simply measure the lengths of the walls which you can add or subtract as required. Finally measure the room height, which is then automatically multiplied by the previously calculated value. 
Pythagoras Function
Pythagoras (3-point)
Using the tripod, you can measure distances indirectly, horizontally and vertically.The Leica DISTO calculates the result automatically for you from three measurements. Functions such as automatic minimum and maximum measurements help you to measure the right point.

Partial heights, e.g. balcony or window heights, are determined by Pythagoras. Pythagoras Functions
Tilt Sensor
360° Tilt Sensor
The tilt sensors in the Leica DISTO can measure inclinations up to +45°, or even have a measurement range of 360°. This means you can measure inclinations over your head. This is particularly useful for determining roof slopes. 
Tilt Sensor
Smart Horizontal Mode
Smart Horizontal Mode
The desired horizontal distance is determined using the tilt measurement, event if the object cannot be directly targeted horizontally. This is very helpful if there are obstacles, e.g. walls, hedges or people, between the instrument and the target.
Smart Horizontal Mode
Stake Out Functions
Stake Out (Visual)
One or two different distances (a and b) can be entered into the device and then used to subtract from defined measured lengths. The display always shows the current stake-out distance and a direction arrow. At a distance of 0.1m to the next stake-out point an acoustic signal sounds.

Add Subtract Measurements Function
Add and Subtract Measurements
It's not always so simple as taking one shot to get the measurement you need. Sometimes its handy to add multiple shots together, or subtract a negative space from a measurement. As you use the Add/Subtract function, the final result is displayed in the main line, and the last measurement taken is shown above.
Set a timer to delay a measurement the same way you would with the shutter on a digital camera.
Personal Favorite Functions
With over 20 functions, chances are you are going to use one or two more than the rest. This Favorites function lets you bookmark your most-used functions on the tabs at the bottom of the touch screen.
Point to Point Measurement
Point 2 Point (Only with DST360 Adapter)
Measure the tie distance between two points, even if you are hundreds of feet from your target. Shoot Point 1 then Point 2 and the S910 displays the distance between them. Widths, heights, diagonals, gaps, it doesn't matter: Just measure the start and end point and the distance is displayed.
P2P Measuring
DXF Data Capture
DXF Data Capture (Only with DST360 Adapter)
After levelling the Disto S910 with the folded out Smart Base, you can measure points and save them in a DXF file. The files are then available for you to download by USB. The 2D DXF files present floor plans or wall layouts; the 3D DXF files provide you with the measured points in 3D for further processing. As long as the Point-Finder was switched on, you will also be able to download the pictures of the measured points.

Multi-Function End Piece
Whether measuring out of corners, slots or from edges, with this end-piece you are prepared for all measuring situations. The instrument detects the end-piece automatically, which helps you avoid expensive measuring errors.
