Topcon Introduces New Rotating Laser – RL-200

Livermore, Calif. – March 14, 2013 – Topcon Positioning Systems (TPS) has added a new rotating laser to its product line – the RL-200. Designed for general construction, engineering and agricultural land leveling applications, the RL-200 is a high-powered laser built to provide extreme accuracy and increased operating range.
“The RL-200 uses a precise and reliable encoder system to provide superior horizontal accuracy with repeatability of plus or minus 7 arc seconds,” said Tony Vanneman, TPS product marketing manager for construction products.
The new laser is available in single or dual slope models. “If the operator needs slopes up to 25%, it is no problem with the RL-200,” Vanneman said. The single slope model has a -5% to +25% grade range. The dual slope model adds +/- 10% grade to the second axis.
Both models include an LS-80L laser sensor, specifically designed for the high-powered laser diode and operating range of the RL-200. “Combining the RL-200 with the LS-80L laser receiver provides an 1100 meter diameter working range,” said Vanneman.
The RL-200 is covered by a five-year guarantee for all Topcon manufactured laser products. “The industry-leading guarantee is a way Topcon can demonstrate our commitment to the long-term equipment performance needs of our customers,” Vanneman said, “and they will be very happy with the performance of the RL-200.”
