New Construction Laser from Leica Geosystems Offers 60% Brighter Beam

Leica Geosystems announced a major upgrade for the Rugby 200 construction laser, featuring a 60% brighter beam.

With its boosted output, the product is rated as a Class IIIa laser device, according to Doug Plantenga, product manager for lasers at Leica Geosystems.

“With its new brighter beam, the Rugby 200 is the most accurate, versatile and rugged interior laser on the market today,” said Plantenga, who added that it is the only interior laser that backs its rugged design with a two-year knockdown warranty.

The Rugby 200 is a laser for a wide range of interior and general construction applications.   With its super-bright visible laser beam, the Rugby 200 has a working range of up to 1,000 ft. (300 m), plus a plumb beam for 90̊ layout work and a plumb-down feature for setup over a point.  It also features adjustable head speeds, scan mode, H.I. elevation alert, an optional full-function remote control and a heavy duty carrying case that allows the laser and wallmount bracket to be easily stored fully assembled.

Plantenga added, “The Rugby 200 is built with the same ergonomic and structural standards as the Rugby 100 and Rugby 100LR, both of which have received an overwhelmingly enthusiastic response from customers worldwide.”
