Using an integrated laser module to capture and save measurements data directly onto photographs taken by its internal digital camera, the Hilti laser range meter PD-CS will help make contractors and site supervisors more productive, and eliminate the need for multiple devices—including paper and pencils. The tool allows the user to measure distances to 656 ft (200 m) with an accuracy of +/- .04-inch (1 mm) and add context to store data with pictures and/or text. Collected information can then be shared in a single PDF report or spreadsheet (CVS) using Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or a Micro USB connection. The two 5 MP cameras with zooming capabilities on the Hilti PD-CS make locating a target outdoors or at long distances very easy. The user can take direct and indirect measurements and calculate area and volume among many other applications. Notes can easily be added to measurements and photos, and users can create project folders for different jobsites. The laser uses an Android based technology and has a color touch screen that is usable even with work gloves on. It has 8 GB of memory and will store more than 6000 measurements with photos. The unit has an integrated Li-Ion battery with a 10-hour battery life.
