Bosch Power Tools has released its latest generation of its Blaze Laser Measures, equipped with 11 different measuring functions and a range up to 65 feet. 

Built for complete durability with full, rubber-overmold housings protecting every impact point and IP65 ratings, this second generation of Blaze laser measures is made to withstand tough conditions in applications from HVAC, concrete masonry, woodworking, and more.

Blaze also brings a dual power source to the laser measure world. The tools are powered by two standard AA batteries or the GLM-BAT (lithium Ion battery pack) for extended runtime.

 “Now with upgraded measuring functions like the tape measure and big number mode for greater visibility and improved tool settings for easy use, we are happy to introduce the newest generation of BLAZE Laser measures,” said Ricardo Pedroso, product manager for Bosch Power Tools. “The line is intentionally built with end-users in mind and designed to withstand virtually any job in any application and offers a significant benefit with its dual power source capabilities.”

In addition to improved durability, the second generation of laser measures offers a wide variety of enhanced features based on user feedback.

Now with tape measure mode, the line offers a live measurement displayed in a traditional, visual way for users accustomed with using traditional tape measures. The laser measures also feature big numbers mode, displaying large figures for fast and easy readability with a focus on only the essential information and fading out everything else on the display.

 For added ease of use, the laser measures include a state of the art user interface with advanced HMI and higher contrast to improve visibility in all environments. The easy-to-read backlit color display illuminates numbers with a distinct resolution, for work in low-light or no-light conditions. 

Models GLM165-25G, GLM165-27CG, and GLM165-27CGL also come equipped with green-beam laser technology which generates a dot that is up to 4 times brighter than the standard red beams. 

Additionally, all Blaze Laser Measure models come with a belt clip providing convenience to carry and easy access.
