a laser range finder?
A laser range
finder, simply put it will tell you how far away you are from an object. As
always there are factors effecting performance.
Snow, Rain Dark,
Finder is still accurate to 1m but the distance it is able to measure is
influenced. All range finders regardless of brand are limited by these parameters.
A white reflective target can always be ranged further than a dark dull one.
does it know how far it is to the object?
Well, in lay mans terms, hundreds of lasers are emitted towards an
object, they then bounce off the object and are collected by the machine,
calculated using some huge scientific formula, and then give you an accurate
reading on the distance.
What type of laser do your Laser Range Finders Use?
Our Laser Range Finders use a Class 1 eye-safe laser.
Accuracy - shown in meters or
yards, it is how precise the measurement given is. For example 1+ m means it is
exact to within one meter of the object you are measuring.
Quality Indicator - is based on how many lasers were returned and collected
after bouncing off the object. The reading is more precise when the device
receives more readings. This is read as high, med or low.
Reticle - seen through the
eyepiece when looking at an object, gives a point of reference to center over
the image. Is usually a cross or a small square.
Scan - means that without doing anything more than holding a button
down measurements will continuously be taken of different objects the finder is
Rain Mode - will distinguish between lasers bounced off raindrops and off of
the object you are intending to range and give you the true measurement.
Automatic 100m Mode - the range finder will disregard brush, or
other foreground clutter and measure past it to your intended target.
