Intended use

The product described is a laser range meter. It is designed for single measurements and for continuous measurement of distances.

Distances can be measured relative to all objects with a surface consisting of any normally laser-reflecting material such as concrete, stone, wood, plastic or paper. The use of prisms or other highly reflective targets is impermissible and, if attempted, can falsify the results.
The product is approved for use with batteries of type AAA.
