Fluke 411D Series Distance Meter


Welcome To G-TV! Today I will be showing you
Fluke’s 411D Series Distance Meters. The 411D is a professional-grade laser distance
meter used to quickly and accurately determine the distance to a target, the area bounded
by two distances, or the volume within three measurements. It uses some of the most advanced
technology for measuring distances, reducing estimation errors. The 411 D confidently measures
distances up to 30 meters or 100 feet, with an accuracy of 3 millimeters or 1/8th of an
inch. To power on the distance meter, press the measure key. Next, I will set the measuring
plane to either be configured from the front edge or the rear edge. The standard setting
is the rear edge. For measuring from the front edge, I will quickly push the unit key here
and the distance meter will then measure distance from the device’s front edge. To revert
back to the rear edge mode, I will push the unit key once more and the device will be
able to measure distance from the rear edge of the meter. To change the unit of measurement,
I will press and hold the unit key for several seconds. For every time the key is pushed
like this, the device switches to the next measuring unit. The possible units include:
meters with millimeter display, feet inch fractional, with a summary row up to 1/16th
inch and a 2nd row up to 1/8th inch, and inch fractional, with a summary row up to 1/16th
inch and a 2nd row up to 1/8th inch. For measuring individual distances, press the measure key
briefly and aim the laser at the target area. Then press the measure key again and the device
will display the results immediately. For continuous measuring, press and hold the measure
key for a few seconds. The distance meter will be continuous measuring until the measure
button is pushed again. For the add function, I can measure the first distance and then
press the plus key here. This will enable the device to add the second measurement to
the first one. The subtraction function works in the same way, but I will push the minus
key instead of the plus key after the first measurement. Results are displayed in the
summary row with the previous value in the second row. To calculate the area, press the
area/volume/height key on the left once. The volume symbol will appear on the display.
I can press the measure key to measure the first distance such as length and then again
to measure the second distance, which could be the width. The results will appear in the
summary row with the respective measured distance to the next measurement in the second row.
To measure space volume, I will press the area/volume/height key twice instead of once
as before. The volume symbol appears on the device. I will need three measurements, the
length, width and height. I will push the measure key for the first distance, and again
for the second. Finally the third distance to calculate the total volume. Results will
appear in the summary row with the respective measured distance to the next measurement
in the second row. The last function available is Pythagoras. To get to this function, I
will push the area/volume/height key three times. The Pythagoras symbol will appear.
I will push the measure key to find the first distance, such as the diagonal measurement.
Then I will press the measurement key again to find the second distance or horizontal
distance. The results will appear in the summary. Fluke’s 411D Series Distance Meters, along
with thousands of other products and services are available at Galco.com.
