With high-precision liquid-based inclination sensors, Leica laser measuring devices can measure not only lengths, but heights as well.
Based on Hahn-Schickard's technology for liquid-based inclination sensors, created in 2006, highly-accurate sensors have been developed in cooperation with 2E Mechatronic, Leica Geosystems, and MicroMountains Applications.
Since 2009, the sensors have been produced and sold as a new business segment at 2E Mechatronic. Integrated into the Leica laser measurement systems, they enable the exact measurement of both lengths and heights. In 2014, Leica carried out another benchmark analysis that confirmed that the angle sensor is still the most accurate sensor in its price class. For this reason, the Leica is also using it in the next generation of its top device.
