As a high-precision measuring instrument, the laser rangefinder has been widely used in people's lives. But when we buy laser rangefinders, we will find that the prices of laser rangefinders vary greatly. Why is this?
There are many factors that affect the price of laser rangefinders. Without considering the brand value, the type of laser rangefinder should be considered first.
The first type is a handheld laser rangefinder
This type of instrument has a relatively short measurement distance, generally within 250 meters, with a small range and high precision, with an accuracy of about 1mm.
At present, there are not many brands of handheld laser rangefinders on the market, and the price generally ranges from tens of dollars to several hundreds of dollars.
The main factors affecting the price of handheld laser rangefinders:
1. Measuring distance: The farther the measuring distance of the handheld laser rangefinder, the higher the price. Generally, the price of the handheld laser rangefinder below 50 meters is within hundreds of dollars.
2. Function: There are many functions of the handheld laser rangefinder. You need to understand it in detail when purchasing. The more functions, the more expensive the price will be.
The second is the telescope-type laser rangefinder
This type of laser ranging telescope is both a telescope and a rangefinder. The measurement distance is generally far, the measurement range is about 0-3000 meters, and the price ranges from tens of hundreds or even thousands dollars. Mainly used in outdoor medium and long distance measurement, it is the most widely used type of distance measuring instrument.
Generally speaking, the factors that affect the price of telescopic laser rangefinders can be roughly divided into two categories:
Some telescope-type laser rangefinders only have the function of ranging, but cannot measure height and angle. This type of laser rangefinder has a relatively simple function and relatively low price.
02.Multifunctional Telescopic Laser Rangefinder
Laser rangefinders vary in price according to their functions. The main functions depend on whether there are height measurement, angle measurement, horizontal distance measurement, height difference (absolute height), continuous distance measurement, height measurement, continuous angle measurement, etc. The more features, the higher the price.
The main functional factors that affect the price of telescopic laser rangefinders:
When choosing a rangefinder, the first priority must be the accuracy of the instrument. Rangefinders with higher accuracy are more popular with consumers and are more expensive.
The magnification refers to how many times the telescope rangefinder can magnify the target. At present, the tontube laser rangefinder has an 8x magnification function, which is the leader in the rangefinder.
The measurement distance is the main indicator of the laser rangefinder telescope, and it is also the most important factor affecting the price. At present, the measurement range of the telescope-type laser rangefinder is generally about 0-3000 meters, and this distance refers to the straight-line distance from the measurement position to the measurement target. There is another important indicator behind, which is the horizontal distance (the two concepts must not be confused).
04 .Can the horizontal distance be measured?
The measurement distance mentioned above refers to the straight-line distance from the measurement position to the measurement target, while the horizontal distance refers to the horizontal distance from the measurement position to the measurement target. These two distances are different.
05. Can you measure the distance between any two points?
In addition to measuring the straight-line distance and the horizontal distance from the measurement position to the measurement target, whether or not to measure the distance between any two points in the space is also a factor that many people will consider when purchasing a rangefinder. This type of rangefinder has more comprehensive functions and is relatively expensive.
06. Can you measure height/height difference
Many rangefinders have the function of measuring the level, so we call this rangefinder an altimeter. Models that can measure height will be more expensive than models that do not have this function. It should be noted that another concept of height measurement is to measure the absolute height of the target (ie height difference), which refers to the height of the measurement target itself. These two concepts must not be confused.
07. Can you measure the angle?
There are many rangefinders with the function of measuring the angle, so this type of rangefinder can also be called a goniometer, which is more powerful. Whether the angle can be measured is another major factor that affects the price of the rangefinder.
08. Durability and Portability
Since the telescopic rangefinder is usually used in outdoor scenes, it is inevitable that there will be some bumps. If the instrument is not reliable and durable, it will make people worry. Therefore, instruments with anti-fog, waterproof and anti-drop functions are more popular.
