How to distinguish between handheld and telescopic laser rangefinders


A lot of people once touched a handheld laser rangefinder and a portable laser rangefinder, couldn't tell the difference between the two, and then yelled at each other. Today, I will explain the difference between the two rangefinders

If you can tell from the name that one is handheld and the other is a telescope, the telescope is understandable, but basically every laser rangefinder is handheld, huh, is there any difference?


it's actually really easy. We only need to look at the physical map and compare it, and we can see it from the appearance immediately. The effect is as follows.

The left side of the picture is a handheld laser rangefinder, and the right side is a telescope laser rangefinder.

Next, I will explain the difference from the two functional effects.

Handheld laser rangefinder: The measurement distance is generally less than 300 meters, but the accuracy can reach 0.1 to 0.2 mm, domestically produced is generally 0.2 mm, and foreign well-known brands such as Bosch can reach 0.1 mm.

Hand-held laser rangefinders are mostly used for indoor measurement, because there will be a red dot pointing to the object to be measured during measurement, but the red dot of this laser is basically invisible outdoors, which limits the hand-held laser rangefinder can only be used in Indoor use.

But there are also high-end handhelds that can be used outdoors, but the price is more expensive, haha.

Then there's the telescope laser rangefinder. The distance measured by the telescope is about 600-2000 meters, which is far from the handheld laser rangefinder, but the accuracy is generally only plus or minus 1 meter, which is still good. In many cases, it is also easy to be affected by the outside weather.
