Measuring equipmentSimple, fast and accurate: Measuring equipment from Einhell
Find the right measurement technology for every project
Looking to get started on a big DIY project? Even before getting materials, one thing will be at the top of your list: Measuring. Einhell laser rangefinders help you quickly measure distances, areas and even volumes of a room with the utmost precision. And that precision is important because ultimately even millimetres can determine whether or not your project succeeds. Whether for floors or tiles, precisely marking out flower beds or making sure your new wall cupboard fits exactly into the intended niche, a laser measuring tool simplifies every DIY project and should be part of the basic equipment in every good workshop. For example, if you want to hang several pictures on the wall at the same height, a line laser, e.g. a laser levelling device or a cross line laser, is a great help.
In addition to measuring technology with lasers, Einhell also offers testing devices that reliably determine other values and quantities. A digital detector, for example, shows you where pipes and cables run in the wall, and a wood moisture measuring device not only determines the ambient temperature, but also the moisture in wood, cardboard, mortar, concrete or plaster.

What to look out for when buying a measuring equipment
In the following, we'll explain to you what makes a good laser measuring tool, cross line laser, laser leveller, wood moisture meter or precise digital detector, why line lasers should be self-levelling and what questions you should ask yourself when choosing measuring technology.
What do you want to measure?
Depending on what you want to measure – i.e. distance, area, volume, humidity or temperature – you should choose the right device. Laser measuring tools are suitable for measuring distance, and a cross line laser or laser level is recommended for establishing height horizons. If you want to find cables and pipes, you should use a digital detector, and to determine residual moisture in wood and other materials, you need a wood moisture meter.
If you choose a laser device with a point or line laser, you should make sure that the rangefinder or line laser is self-levelling. Self-levelling means that the laser aligns itself and you will receive a warning if it is tilted more than 4°. Many devices can also be used as a digital spirit level, so they provide a dual function. You should also first check what range your rangefinder or laser has, to make sure that it is suitable for your project.
A useful feature of laser measuring tools is that they store the last results. Depending on the model, you can store up to 50 measurements. Wall brackets, which are included in delivery with the laser leveller, are also a practical help. If you want to use a cross line laser with a tripod, you should first check whether a corresponding thread for the tripod is integrated in the housing. All measuring equipment is supplied with a bag for safe storage.
