Bosch 90-Degree Tilt Sensor Laser Distance Measurer
February 20, 2013

Bosch Measuring Tools’ GLM 80 is an Li-Ion battery-powered combination laser distance and angle measurer has the ability to accurately measure heights of and distances to objects with only one click of a button.  The integrated two-axis tilt sensor enables the GLM 80 to read angles when the unit is handled either horizontally or vertically. Its indirect measurement mode is ideal for taking measurements that are inaccessible. The GLM 80 does this by combining the distance with the angle measurement to provide the unknown measurement. In addition, the tilt sensor ensures more accurate readings because it indicates when the unit is level. The quick and easy field calibration ensures users of precise measurements every time. The new Bosch GLM 80 features an integrated Li-Ion battery, rechargeable via standard micro-USB. The battery can achieve up to 25,000 measurements per charge. For added versatility, the GLM 80 can also be placed inside the R 60 digital level attachment, which transforms the GLM 80 into a digital level.
