Bosch Power Tools has announced the launch of its second generation of Blaze laser measures, equipped with a series of new and improved functions and features.

The tools offer a measuring range of up to 65 feet and feature full rubber-overmold casings to protect impact points. Users can select between 11 different measuring functions, including tape measure mode and big number mode. The dual-power device is able to run on either two standard AA batteries or a GLM-BAT lithium ion battery pack.

“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,” says 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.”

Each measure features an easy-to-read backlit color display user interface, as well as a belt clip for convenience and easy access. Models GLM165-25G, GLM165-27CG, and GLM165-27CGL feature a green-beam laser, which creates a dot up to four times brighter than red beams, according to the manufacturer.

New settings include a haptic feedback feature for successful or failed measurements, a battery save mode that reduces the brightness of the user interface and deactivates audio and haptic feedback, and a delete memory option to clear all saved measurements. The animation function creates graphics to convey how measuring functions are used, and the storage usage data function saves the progress even if the tool is switched off.
