Lecia Distro D8

Postby s-motter1 on Mon May 20, 2013 12:30 pm

Currently I am creating a on-axis tracking system that will potentially use 4 laser rangefinders to track an aerial drone in flight. The laser rangefinder that I am looking to use is the Leica Distro D8, since it will be able to range out to 200 meters with +/- 1mm of accuracy. However, I have a couple technical questions about the Leica Distro D8.

Can multiple Lecia Distro D8's working in close proximity of each other or will they effect each others range output? I ask this because I am assuming they would be operating on the same frequency so one laser could potentially pick up another ones light reflection for distance measurement.

What is the focal diameter of the laser at 50, 100, 150, 200 meters?

What is the beam diffusion angle of the Leica Distro D8?

You'll need the engineers at Leica Geosystems for your questions. You can contact through their website, which asks for your location and email specifics. Here's the site, good luck. http://ptd.leica-geosystems.com/en/index.htm
