May 26, 2004 — Leica Geosystems today announced the introduction of the Rod-Eye Classic hand-held laser sensor for general construction applications.

“The mid-range Rod-Eye Classic delivers consistent, reliable results in harsh construction environments,” said Doug Plantenga, product manager for lasers at Leica Geosystems. “Its accurate sensing bands and ease of use make it the ideal choice for contractors looking to increase productivity.”

The new laser sensor features an LCD on both the front and rear for fast and easy visual reference, and has a working diameter of 2,500 ft. (750 m). It comes with a 24-month warranty.

The Rod-Eye Classic is designed to work well with any rotating laser, especially the rugged and industry-acclaimed Rugby series of lasers from Leica Geosystems.

The Rod-Eye Classic is the newest addition to the Rod-Eye family of sensors. Other products include the top-of-the-line Rod-Eye Pro with extremely accurate sensing bands and industrial deadband settings for special applications, and the entry-level Rod-Eye Mini, a small, simple sensor for the budget-conscious consumer.
