When measuring/laying out a job site, how often do you wish for a cloudy day? Sometimes, you don’t hope for anything and just measure early in the morning or later in the evening. Either way, we can agree that the sun, laser measuring and our eyes don’t get along as well as we need them to. Introducing the Bosch BLAZE Outdoor GLM400C w/ Viewfinder & GLM400CL w/ Camera.
Both outdoor laser measures priced under $300, rely on a 5.0-megapixel, 8X zoom camera with scratch-proof screen to find the laser target at up to 400 ft. in bright conditions, expansive indoor space or against busy backdrops. The easy-to-read color display illuminates large numbers and provides clear resolution in dark areas. The BLAZE GLM400CL version can take photos and comes with memory for 50 measurements and storage for up to 200 images, in addition to a lithium-ion battery.
Default real-time measurement provides immediate, accurate measuring that automatically adjusts as the user moves closer or father from the target. Measurement accuracy is +/- 1/16 in. Each device is sized to fit into any pocket for easy access. A digital bubble level provides a visual reference when measuring horizontal distances.
Measurement documentation can be transferred quickly to a smartphone or tablet relying on Bluetooth connectivity in conjunction with Bosch’s MeasureOn app. Note: Photo files are too large to transfer via Bluetooth, but can be transmitted using supplied USB cable. Easily organize, document and transfer measurements using the free Bosch MeasureOn app. The free-to-download app provides an intuitive and clear digital project overview, including floor plans, measurements and notes.
The BLAZE Outdoor GLM400C and BLAZE Outdoor GLM400CL laser measures provide default real-time measuring, as well as length, area, volume and indirect measuring functions that are easy to employ using a display guide that walks the user through each measurement process. A built-in inclinometer determines the angle of pitch (tilt angle 360°), maximum/minimum stake out lengths and double indirect measurements. It also confirms when the tool is level.
The Bosch BLAZE Outdoor GLM400C with Viewfinder is powered by three AA batteries and includes a hand strap and pouch. The Bosch BLAZE Outdoor GLM400CL with Camera includes an integrated, rechargeable 3.1 Ah Lithium-ion battery that delivers enough runtime for all-day jobs, along with a micro USB cable, a battery charger, hand strap and pouch.
