Leica DISTO X3 Laser Distance Meter – Intrinsically Safe!!

We are pleased to announce that the Leica Disto X3 is now available as an Intrinsically Safe device

Designed for tough, rugged conditions!


A device termed intrinsically safe is designed to be incapable of producing heat or spark sufficient to ignite an explosive atmosphere. Intrinsic safety (IS) is a protection technique that works by limiting the energy available for ignition.

Devices or wiring are not intrinsically safe alone, only when employed in a properly designed IS system. Such systems are usually provided with detailed instructions to ensure safe use and maintenance.

A measuring instrument certified for use in a hazardous area will be designed to operate with low voltage and current, and will be designed without any large capacitors or inductors that could discharge in a spark.
