ELYRIA, OHIO – RIDGID announces the micro LM-400 Advanced Laser Distance Meter. Capable of reading distances up to 229 feet in length, it is designed with many noteworthy elements for quickly and easily viewing, storing and sharing measurements.

Specifically, it features a large, backlit, four-line display screen for a clear view of the reading; an inclination angle measurement system for indirect measurements in hard-to-reach areas; an advanced calculation feature that can adjust units instantly to inches, feet or meters, and enough storage space for saving up to 20 measurements at a time. The new meter is also IP 54 dust proof, splash proof and has an auto shut-off after three minutes of inactivity to preserve battery life.

Additionally, the LM-400, via Bluetooth®, is compatible with smartphones and tablets, allowing users to view, store and share data remotely. Available as a free download, the RIDGIDsketch™ App for Android® and iOS® enables wireless transfer of LM-400 measurements to a room floor plan, photo, or sketch.

“The RIDGID micro LM-400 is a strong addition to our line of laser distance meters,” said Eric Huber, Senior Marketing Manager at RIDGID. “Its ability to perform advanced calculations and transfer measurements to a mobile device makes it an ideal tool for complex projects such as mapping out available space  in existing structures and new construction.” 

The LM-400 comes with a convenient soft carrying case and runs on two included AA batteries.
