A new versatile application enables convenient measuring due to a high-tech new offering.

Combining data transfer with a versatile application to guarantee convenient measuring is now possible due to the high-tech Bosch GLM 100 C Laser Measure. It is locally available through the South African division of Bosch Power Tools.

The Bosch GLM 100 C Professional Laser Measure instantly transfers measurement data to a computer, tablet or smartphone via Bluetooth to be stored and processed by the GLM Measure & Document App. Bosch measuring tools Brand Manager Ninet Bosman explains that the Android- and iOS-compatible App allows users to quickly and easily record and save real-time measurements without manual calculation or errors.”

Within the App, these measurements of length, area, volume, angle or multi-surface distances can then be saved as a labelled list for further processing, or immediately superimposed over photographs of the jobsite. “This innovation makes multiple site visits a thing of the past,” she observes. “Markers on an image can be established and values assigned as the contractor goes about his assessment. There is even an option to add notes.”

It is possible to extend the GLM 100 C’s capabilities with the GLM FloorPlan App. “Users can employ this App to check digital blueprints of a room or floorplan. Additionally, they can create their own floor plan or modify an existing one,” Ninet points out.

The GLM 100 C has a measurement range of 100 m with a measurement accuracy of 1.5mm per metre. “The GLM 100 C also has an integrated 360° inclination sensor that displays two axes to improve angle functionality and a corner measuring pin allowing users to measure from hard-to-reach positions,” notes Ninet.

The device also features a backlit display with tilt-screen technology for easy viewing in all directions. Standard accessories include a micro USB cable and storage pouch – facilitating exciting ways to make use of this laser measure.
