Topcon releases newest compact digital sensor
Topcon Positioning Group announces the release of the latest addition to its line of compact digital laser sensors — the LS-100D. The sensor digitally displays the offset value to on-grade, which is designed to help make elevation and vertical alignment control easier and faster for any application.
With on-grade resolution between 0.5 millimetres and 10 millimetres, plus a 90 millimetre reception height, the LS-100D is a high precision sensor that will meet the demands of even the toughest jobs.
“The LS-100D features an extra-wide beam capture sensor that also rejects annoying interference from strobe light exposures,” said Kris Maas, director of construction product management. “The large and bright LCD displays (front and back) feature 9-channels of grade information and digitally display the distance to on-grade. By pressing the hold button, the display is locked so the user can conveniently read the results.”
The sensor offers three colored LEDs and a magnet mount for vertical operation, which is designed to be useful for steel erection or operator grade-checking while excavating. Alert icons appear on the LCD if the accompanying Topcon rotating laser instrument is disturbed (HI alert) or when the laser battery is low.
Topcon’s new LS-100D will be available as a standalone accessory for Australian customers, or as a package option with the Topcon RL-H4C, Topcon RL-SV2S or Topcon RL-200 series construction laser levels.
