The new self-leveling rotating laser from Topcon Positioning System (TPS) – RL-H4C – sets a new industry standard for general construction lasers.

“All components are newly designed to offer the users maximum performance at an affordable price,” said Tony Vanneman, TPS construction product marketing manager. “The RL-H4C exceeds the increased demands for job site durability, range, accuracy, versatility and cost-effectiveness.”

In combination with the new laser sensor LS-80L, the RL-H4C “dramatically increased the operating range to 800 meters in diameter, which is more than a 100 percent increase over previous models, and is the longest range for its price level,” Vanneman said.

In addition to the superior cost-performance ratio, the RL-H4C has a number of industry-leading features, including ±10 arc-seconds horizontal accuracy and ±5 degrees self-levelling range.

The RL-H4C has the longest battery life in its class: 100 hours with the four D alkaline batteries, or 60 hours with Ni-MH rechargeable battery. It can also operate with AC power, enabling battery recharge on-the-go. The laser includes single-axis manual slope capability for grade-matching setting and IP66 protection against dust and water. Its large dual handles make carrying and setting up easy.

Ben Davis, Construction Products Manager at Position Partners, Topcon’s Australian distributor, said: “This new self-levelling laser has many applications regardless of the type of project.

“Because the RL-H4C combines the slope functionality and long range capabilities into a single laser, it is versatile enough to handle machine control applications, site levelling, setting up concrete work and checking excavations for foundations and footings and all types of general construction work.”

“Any job where contractors use optical levels, the construction-tough RL-H4C with its 800 meters working range and IP66 rating can do the work.”

Davis confirmed that the RL-H4C is covered by the new five-year warranty on Topcon-manufactured lasers.

“Contractors want to protect the investment they make in equipment,” Davis said.  “The industry-leading warranty, combined with the calibration and repairs service from Position Partners, is a way of demonstrating our commitment to the long-term equipment performance needs of our customers.

“Topcon has long set the standard in the construction laser market, and that standard continues with the RL-H4C.”
