Leica Geosystems

Leica Geosystems has been building precision surveying equipment since 1921. In 1993 they built a reflector-less technology that revolutionized land surveying. Leica introduced the first handheld laser distance measure.

The Leica DISTO™ S910 by Leica Geosystems measures fast and precise distances between any two points from one location with the laser distance meter. This helps easily create as built documentation, calculate roof dimensions and integrate data into BIM or CAD software to create 3D visualizations. This improved workflow saves valuable time and money – all this at a range of up to 300 m.

For over twenty years, the DISTO team has been hard at work, incorporating advancements in technology to make DISTOs smaller, lighter, more powerful, and ever more useful.

The technology that drives the effectiveness and efficiency of our business is changing all of the time.  At Newport Solar we work to stay caught up with these technology developments and integrate those that can make us better at what we do.  We checked out the Leica DISTO™ S910 to see how we could integrate it into our workflow.  Check out the demo video for the Leica DISTO™ S910

Measurement of a site is just one variable that we record.  There are many factors that affect the feasibility and efficiency of a solar array.  Building orientation, panel tilt angle, electrical panel size, roof geometry and tree shading are just a few of the variables that we look at while designing a solar array.  Click Here to learn more about our site visit process.

Thanks again to Leica Geosystems for letting us try out their Leica DISTO™ S910!
