Digital spirit levels with Bluetooth

DIGITAL MEASUREMENT OF INCLINATIONS AND ANGLES

The BIG RED digital is ideal to use anywhere, where inclinations, slopes and angles need to be measured quickly and precisely. These digital levels are highly precise with an integrated electronic inclinometer module and Bluetooth®, which interfaces with the free SOLA Measures app. Furthermore, they are sturdy and easy to use. 

 

Highlights

  • Measuring tolerance standard position ≤ 0.0003 in./in. (0.3 mm/m, 0.017°), inverted position ≤ 0.0005 in./in. (0.5 mm/m, 0.029°)
  • Measurement tolerance of Solatronic module:
    0.05° at 0° and 90°/0.10° between 1° and 89°
  • Adjustable inclination display in °, in/ft, %, mm/m
  • ‘Hold’ function for storing measuring results and transferring angles
  • Digital display rotates automatically in inverted positions
  • Permanently backlit display for optimum readability
  • Acoustic signal guide
  • Patented SOLA FOCUS vials for BIG RED 24" digital, BIG RED 48" digital and BIG RED 72" digital
  • Protection class IP65: dustproof and protected against water jets
  • Bluetooth interface for use with SOLA Measures app

USING THE BIG RED DIGITAL SPIRIT LEVELs

SOLATRONIC MODULE WITH PRACTICAL FUNCTIONS

The key feature of the BIG RED digital is the integrated electronic inclinometer module (Solatronic module). The measuring results can be displayed via the ‘Mode’ function either in degrees (°), in/ft (decimal or fractional), percent (%) or mm/m. Using the ‘Hold’ function, measuring results can be saved for later use and angles can be transferred easily.

Optimal readability for inverted measurements

When taking inverted measurements, the digital display automatically rotates on the digital spirit level module. This is particularly helpful for inverted measurements. Thanks to the permanently backlit display, the measurement result can also be clearly read even under poor visibility conditions.

Acoustic signal guide

For unfavourable angles and difficult to view/dark areas, the acoustic signal guide can be switched on. The closer the digital spirit level gets to the standard position (0° and 90°), the higher the frequency of the acoustic signal. This enables measurements to be taken without directly viewing the display and frees up both hands to assemble furniture, for example.

SOLA FOCUS vial

The BIG RED 24" digital, BIG RED 48" digital and BIG RED 72" digital are fitted with the patented SOLA FOCUS vial (pictured right). This acrylic glass vial includes an integrated magnification lens (+60%) and has a significantly higher degree of contrast compared to a ring vial. This makes it faster to take measurements and achieves more accurate and therefore better results. The measurement tolerance is ≤ 0.0003 in./in. (0.3 mm/m, 0.017°) in the standard position and ≤ 0.0005 in./in. (0.5 mm/m, 0.029°) in inverted positions. Further quality features: The vial fluid is antistatic and has excellent light resistance.


Use with the SOLA Measures app

bluetooth + SOLA Measures App

The Bluetooth interface syncs the BIG RED digital spirit levels with the free SOLA Measures app, giving you access to useful functions. For example, measured values can be transferred to your smartphone in real time and functions on the digital level can be controlled via the app. With each measurement taken, real-time data (such as date and time) are automatically recorded in the app’s measured value memory. It is also possible to upload notes, photos or videos for every measurement and to share these quickly and easily. The user-friendly menu navigation makes the app intuitive and easy to use. iOS and Android versions are available.

Download the app for useful additional functions

  • Real-time transfer of the measured values from the measuring device to your smartphone
  • Remote control of functions on the measuring device via the app
  • Automatic recording and storage of the measurement results with the date and time
  • Addition of notes, photos and videos to stored measured values
  • Photo overlay: The measured values, date and time are displayed and stored directly on the photo
  • Display of all stored measured values in the clearly arranged measured value memory
  • Sharing function allows fast sending of measurement results
  • Once paired, measuring devices are automatically found by the app and connected

MODEL VARIANTS

BIG RED 10" digital

At just 10 inches, the short digital inclinometer from SOLA is ideally suited for the precise measurement of inclinations and angles with smaller contact surfaces. The BIG RED 10" digital inclinometer is used, for example, for installing window sills or laying pipelines. Thanks to its compact size, this digital inclinometer can be easily stored and transported in any common tool box.
