The Leica LSA360 Pole Adapter is an ideal accessory for reducing error when measuring vertical distances with your Leica Disto D5, D8, or the new E7500i laser meter. When taking measurements with a laser distance meter, it is recommended to use a tripod to ensure stability and complete accuracy. But, when measuring indirectly, accuracy may be compromised if the Disto laser distance meter's reference point changes when moved.
Using Leica’s LSA360 adapter, you can be sure that the laser beam and tilt axis will be aligned when measuring angles vertically. Since the device stays in place even when the base is being rotated, the back end of the handheld instrument remains in position and any potential error is avoided. The LSA360 moves horizontally and rotates 360-degrees vertically.
The adapter is compatible with the Leica TRI100 tripod and any set-up pole containing a diameter of 0.45-1.35 inches.
