Description Technical Specs Manuals / Apps / FAQ's

With a measuring accuracy of ± 1.0 mm, (or 4/100th of an inch), the new improved Leica DISTO™ D330 offers high precision at the touch of a button. The replacement for the Leica Disto D3 has an upgraded large, illuminated display that displays the measurement results and supplementary information clearly and legibly.

Smart Horizontal Mode™
With the ability to measure both distance and inclination, you can determine horizontal distances easily and precisely. If you take a measurement at an inclination of ± 45°, the Leica DISTO™ D330 will automatically calculate the horizontal distance, so you can measure quickly and easily, even over the top of objects and or people.


Multiple functions
The Leica DISTO™ D330 laser distance meter calculates rectangular and triangular areas, volumes, room dimensions and various types of Pythagoras functions. A timer function and memory for up to 20 measurements round off the instrument's wide range of functions – a concept designed to make your work life easier.

  Multifunctional endpiece
Aim the instrument straight at the target point, whether measuring out of corners, slots or from edges: with this endpiece you are prepared for all measuring situations. The Disto D330 detects the endpiece position automatically, helping you avoid expensive measuring errors.

Power Range Technology™
The integrated Power Range Technology™ makes measuring long distances very easy. You can measure up to 260 feet (80 m) without a reflective target and up 325 feet (100 m) to a reflective target.


Bright and clearly arranged display
The results are displayed on the large (2”), high contrast display. At the touch of a button, supplementary information is available on key measurements, e.g. indirect height, room dimensions, angle information or room angles.


Included items – practical and clever:

  • Holster
  • Hand loop
  • 2 AA batteries
  • CD with manual / safety instructions
  • Producer certificate M in accordance with DIN 55350-18-4.2.2
  • Quickstart guide


Leica Disto D330 FAQ
How accurate is the tilt sensor in the Leica DISTO™ D330?
The accuracy of the inclination sensor in the device is ± 0.3° to the laser beam respectively ± 0.3°  to the housing of the device.

How can I check if the tilt sensor of my device is still within the described specifications (± 0.3°)?
The tilt sensor has to be switched on. On an absolute flat surface the first measurement has to be made. (please note angle a). Afterwards the device has to be turned around 180° and the second measurement has to be made. (please note angle b). 
Now angle a and angle b are added up and divided by 2. If this value falls within  ± 0.3° the tilt sensor of the device is within the described specification.

What is the angular range of the tilt sensor in the Leica DISTO™ D330? 
The integral tilt sensor in the Leica DISTO™ D330 functions in the range ± 45° and at a transverse tilt of < ± 10°. The display indicates if the tilt is in the range > ± 50° a line appears on the display with the text max. and an info code i 160, which means that the device is being used outside its permissible range. 
If the device is held at > ± 10° transversely, a similar line appears on the display, which indicates the transverse tilt with the text “max”. The info code i 156 indicates that the device is tilted too much.

What units of tilts are integrated into the Leica DISTO™ D330?
You can set the Leica DISTO™ D330 to use different tilt units. The user can select between ° and %. These can be changed in the menu.

Can the inclination sensor of a Leica DISTO™ D330 be calibrated by the user?
The user can calibrate the device’s tilt sensor. The angle sensor is switched on by pressing the “Function key” once. Take two measurements on an absolutely flat surface. The first measurement is taken and a note is made of the measured angle a. The device is then turned through exactly 180°, the second measurement is taken and a note is made of the measured angle b. The value x to which the device must be corrected is calculated as follows:

x = - (a+b) /2

The calibration mode is then entered by pressing keys “Clear Off” and the “Function key” both at the same time for 2 seconds. The correction value x can be entered here using the “Plus” and “Minus” keys. The entered value is stored and implemented by pressing the “Menu/=”  key.

Is it possible to obtain detailed information about the measurements taken? 
Yes, it is possible to obtain detailed information within the Leica DISTO™ D330 about the measurements of areas and volumes. After the measurements have been taken (area/volume), the “Area/Volume” key must be held down and then detailed information is shown in the display. 

What accessories are recommended for the Leica DISTO™ D330?
For long distances we recommend using a tripod, even indoors. A tripod provides additional steadiness and therefore allows accurate targeting, especially over long distances. We particularly recommend the Leica TRI100 tripod. You will need to set within the menu button that the Leica DISTO™ D330 is now measuring from the tripod thread.

Can the Leica DISTO™ D330 also be used to measure horizontal angles?
No, the integral tilt sensor can only measure vertical angles. If the device is held at a transverse tilt angle greater than +/-10° the display shows an info code 156, which means that the device is required to be held level (transversely).

What is the measuring accuracy when using the direct horizontal measuring function?
For example, if a distance of 10m is measured at an angle of 10°, the error on the direct horizontal distance (fd) is 9mm. 
If a distance of 10m is measured at an angle of 45°, the error on the direct horizontal distance (fd) is 37mm.
In order to have best results with indirect measurements considering the deviation of the inclination sensor use the Leica DISTO™ D330 as follows. For measuring distances use the instrument as flat as possible.

The horizontal distance error (fd) and the height error (fh) can be calculated as follows:

fd = horizontal distance error
fh = error in height
d = measured distance
a = angle at which the distance is measured
fa = possible angular error

fd = d * cos (a) – d * cos (a + fa)
fh= d * sin (a) – d * sin (a + fa)

Further information and a table of measuring accuracies you can find in the FAQ Measuring Accuracy.

Which customer segment would find the Leica DISTO™ D330 of most use for everyday tasks?
The Leica DISTO™ D330 is a great measurement aid for a wide range of target groups and is a superbly multi-talented device for indoor tasks. The device is particularly suitable for the following users: architects, interior surveyors, electricians, carpenters, kitchen installers, flooring contractors, joiners, heating engineers, window treatment professionals, decorators and many others.

Can the display illumination be switched off from the device?
Yes, the display illumination can be switched off in the menu.

Can the historical storage memory in the device be erased? 
The historical storage memory in the device can be erased by pressing the “Clear Off” and “Storage” keys (both pressed at the same time and held for 2 seconds).

How can I get an extra year’s warranty for the Leica DISTO™ D330?
Our standard warranty of 2 years can be extended by one additional year if you register your device on our website http://www.disto.com/  within eight weeks of the purchase date. If the product is not registered, a two year warranty applies
