1. BRIEF DESCRIPTION
LRB 3000PRO Laser Rangefinder Binocular is an advanced
Laser Range Finder system that provides instant distance, speed,
and angular measurements consistently and accurately. The
outstanding optics provides a sharp, clear image under all
conditions. LRB 3000Pro utilizes a revolutionary digital design,
which outperforms any other product in its class and price range.
The unit sends an invisible, eye safe laser beam pulses to the
target. The returned beams are captured by the digital circuitry.
The time differential allows us to calculate the distance to the
target. Incorporated digital compass measures clockwise the
angle between the optical axis and direction to the North Pole.

voltage of the primary 9-Volt battery drops below 7.2 Volts. At
this point the System is still functional but the battery should be
replaced as soon as possible. The System can operate at the
voltage level above 7 Volt.
The System remains in the active displaying state for 8 seconds
after pressing of any of the operating buttons and after 8 seconds
it enters the passive zero power state. Ni-MH rechargeable type
of batteries with extended capacity capable to sustain current
drain up to 250 mA should be used for powering the System.
5.5. Test modes
Mode 16 is designated to test the display. When you choose this
mode all segments and indicators will flash during 8 seconds.
This time should be enough for extensive display testing.
Mode 17 calibrates the digital compass. If the System was
exposed to a strong magnetic field or it was inoperable for a long
time the compass stops working. This is normal. To return the
compass back into working condition enter Mode 17 and rotate
the System in horizontal plane during approximately one minute.
You must perform at least two rotations. The normal compass
operation will be restored.

Distance measuring procedure includes instant statistical
processing of the package of single measuring sessions for each
laser pulse. Qualitative result of the statistical processing is
presented on the Display as a message TARGET
REFLECTION (5).
There are three statistical qualifications of the reflected signal:
• TARGET REFLECTION LOW – when the number of
steady received reflected signals is just enough to make
acceptable conclusion about the measured distance;
• TARGET REFLECTION MED - when the number of
steady received reflected signals is in medium range and
enough to make positive conclusion about the measured
distance;
• TARGET REFLECTION HIGH - when the number of
steady received reflected signals is qualified to be
enough to make reliable conclusion about the measured
distance.
The displayed statistical qualification of the reflected signal
characterizes variation in expected recurrence of measurements.
At qualification HIGH each consequent measurement of the
same target will give you the same result with accuracy of ±1m.
At lower rates of statistical qualification the expected recurrence
may degrade.
The display presents LOW BATTERY warning, when

5.4. Additional display information
The System operates in the setting Modes that are displayed as
follows (refer to Fig.3):
Y/M – units of distance measurement: yards or meters (3).
KMH/MPH – units of speed measurement: km/hour or
miles/hour (3).
° - units of angular measurement: degrees (3)
Shape of the reticle: cross shape or rectangular shape (2).
rEC1 - recall function. Upon pressing the Action button (4) (fig.
1) the Display will sequentially show results of last 10
measurements, starting from the latest one. The number
appearing after word "rEC" shows the number of the
measurement counted back in the sequence. When the System is
in inactive state the 10 previous measurements are stored within
the System and may be recalled at any time.
cLr - clear data function: upon pressing the A button (4) (fig. 1)
the entire data on all previous measurements will be erased. This
function doesn’t change the chosen modes. You can erase the
assigned mode only by assigning a new one.
OVER 100 m – indicates that the gating is on. Note: This is an
optional indicator, which is not activated in this model.
Optional nighttime illuminated display allows more hours of
use and easier readings at dusk, dawn and all night. Note: This is
an optional feature, which may be absent in your unit.

5.1. Preparing the device for operation.
•
Rotate counterclockwise and open the battery compartment
cover (5) located between the objective lenses (fig. 1).
•
Insert one 9V Ni-MH battery into the battery compartment
observing correct polarity.
•
Close the battery compartment cover (5).
•
Adjust the interpupillary distance with lever (7) (fig.2).
•
Adjust the eye relief distance by moving the left collapsing
eyepiece (1) in lengthwise direction.
Note: After changing the battery, it is recommended to run the
Compass Calibration mode (refer to the mode selection
procedure).
5.2. Measuring procedure
When the Rangefinder is in the passive, zero power consumption
state, the LCD Display is blank (transparent). Press the Action
(A) button (4) (Fig.1) and hold for 0.5 sec. to activate the
System. Initially the System always assumes READY mode of
operation and word ‘READY’ appears on the Display. Pressing
and releasing the A button (4) (Fig. 1) at this point triggers a
measuring session, and the result will be displayed in numerical
form (4) (Fig. 3) (if measurement is unsuccessful then four
dashes ‘----‘ will appear in the numerical area). Please note that
the target must be over 20m away. The measured data will
correspond to the mode selected (see below). The units of
measurement will be indicated in the field of view (3) (Fig.3).

rEc – recall function. Upon pressing the Action button (6)
(fig. 1) the Display will sequentially show results of last 10
measurements, starting from the latest one. The number
appearing after word "rEc" shows the number of the
measurement counted back in the sequence. When the
System is in inactive state the 10 previous measurements are
stored within the System and may be recalled at any time.
cLr - clear data function: upon pressing the Action button
(6) (fig. 1) the entire data on all previous measurements will
be erased. This function doesn’t change the chosen modes.
You can erase the assigned mode only by assigning a new
one.

The full trek of all possible modes available is depicted on
Figure 4.

Cd12 – this mode sets the target selection to First. No
other parameters of those, which were previously set, are
influenced.
Cd13 – this mode sets the target selection to Auto. No
other parameters of those, which were previously set, are
influenced.
Cd14 KMH – the unit will measure and display two
parameters at once as distance in meters and speed in
kilometers per hour. The target selection and the reticle
shape inherit the previous value.
Cd15 MPH – the unit will measure and display two
parameters at once as distance in yards and speed in
miles per hour. The target selection and the reticle shape
inherit the previous value.
Cd16 – this is the self-test mode. All segments on
display will blink during 8 seconds. None of the
parameters, which were set before, will change.
Cd17 – this is the self-test mode, performing compass
calibration. None of the parameters, which were set
before, will change.
18

If you choose more than one parameter to measure (for
instance, distance and azimuth), the measured results will appear
on the display every half second.
If the A button is held (pressed) the System automatically
enters SCANNING mode. At this mode, the System repetitively
performs distance measuring and displaying. The time interval
between measurements is approximately 0.25 second. The
maximum measuring distance range for most objects will be
about 3000 meters. The maximum measured distance varies
greatly depending on the reflectivity of the target, weather
conditions and more.
Target reflectivity depends on its color, surface finish, shape
etc. Bright colors are more reflective than darks. A polished
surface is more reflective than a rough one. Larger targets are
easier for distance measuring. Measuring a target faced at 90o
(perpendicular to the laser beams path) provides optimal results.
Bad weather conditions (rain, fog, snow, mist) will reduce the
maximum measured range. Bright sunny days will reduce
performance as well. While the unit will work through many
glass types, measuring through glass will affect the results. Hand
tremor also influences the results. Use tripod to measure distance
to far-away objects.
The unit can estimate distance to up to 7 targets
simultaneously. The mode selection logic allows choosing the
nearest (‘first’), the farthest (‘last’) or the most reflective (‘auto’)
target. This mechanism helps to choose a correct target
11

behind bushes, wires, flakes, or, opposite, measure a distance to
wire, which hangs in front of the building wall. However, it
cannot be guaranteed that the device will always measure the
needed distance. It can happen that there will be no pulses
bounced off the desired object at all.
5.3. Mode switching procedure
By pressing Mode (M) button (3) (Fig.1) when the System is in
READY mode, you enter the Mode selecting state. Pressing the
M button sequentially scans the Modes. The Mode under
selection is indicated on the Display by flashing of the selectable
feature. The "flashing" feature can be selected by pressing the A
button (4). If you don’t find some of the modes described below,
it means they were not installed on your system. Two modes,
“Codes” and “Recall” have submenus. You enter submenu by
pressing the A button from the corresponding mode. After that
you can select the sub-item with the M button and choose your
option by pressing the A button. Each time when you make your
choice, you return to the READY state.
Note: Depending on user’s requirements, the unit can be made
with a special sub selection, providing only the options required
for the particular task.
Note: Depending on the installed software, the situation, when
the mode is accessible but inoperable, also may occur.

Cd4, Cd5, Cd6, Cd7 – reserved for the future extension
and are not available in this model.
Cd8 – the unit will measure two parameters at once as
distance in yards and horizontal angles in degrees.
Target selection is set to Auto. The reticle shape is set to
crosshair. This is the third standard mode.
Cd9 + – this mode sets the reticle shape to crosshair. No
other parameters of those, which were set before, are
influenced.
Cd10 □ – this mode sets the reticle shape to rectangle.
No other parameters of those, which were set before, are
influenced.
Cd11 – this mode sets the target selection to Last. No
other parameters of those, which were previously set, are
influenced.
17

If you want to leave the mode switching procedure without
remembering your choice, you should press and keep held the M
button for more than two seconds. This works like “Escape” key
on a computer keyboard. The rangefinder will remain in the last
set mode and return to the READY state.
Below is the full list of all modes available in the main menu
and submenus. The flashing symbols, which you see on the
display during the mode selection procedure, are marked in bold
in the text.
• Std1 – the unit will measure three parameters at once as
distance in meters, horizontal angles in degrees, vertical
angles in degrees. The target selection is set to Auto. The
reticle shape is set to crosshair. This choice turns off the
gating, if it was turned on before.
• COdE – if you choose this option, you will enter into codes
submenu.
• Cd1 M – the unit will measure and display the distance
in meters only. The target selection and the reticle shape
inherit the previous value.
• Cd2 Y – the unit will measure and display the distance
in yards only. The target selection and the reticle shape
inherit the previous value.
• Cd3 -° – the unit will measure and display the horizontal
angle in degrees only. The target selection and the reticle
shape inherit the previous value.
16

There is one default preset mode, Standard1 (Meters, Degrees,
Crosshair shape reticle, Auto target selection), which opens the
mode trek.
Another standard mode is assigned to Code 8. It determines
measurement units and features as Yards, Degrees, Crosshair
shape reticle, Auto target selection.
After you have selected one of these modes, you can override
its reticle type and target selection with the sub selection code.
For example, Standard1 mode implies crosshair shape reticle. If
you choose rectangular reticle (sub selection Code 10), you
change the reticle shape and leave all other parameters of this
mode intact. If then you choose Standard1 again, the reticle will
turn back crosshair. The last set mode overwrites all features that
it controls.
All other modes determine only one parameter to measure. For
example, Code 14 allows to measure speed of the objects as
kilometers per hour. The shape of reticle and target selection will
remain the same, as they had been set before you selected the
Code 14. Now you can choose a new reticle shape, still
remaining in the speed measuring mode. This example
demonstrates that Codes 9-13 replace one selected feature
independently, and all other codes can replace more than one
feature in a bunch.
