Topcon Introduces New Laser Series Designed for Distance and Accuracy in Construction Projects

Livermore, Calif., U.S./ Capelle A/d Ijssel, the Netherlands – March 29, 2018 – Topcon Positioning Group announces the latest additions to its RL-H line of self-leveling rotating lasers. The RL-H5 series is designed for high-accuracy and long working range in laser applications for grading, excavating and general construction projects. The new offering includes instruments to support diverse job site demands.
“Topcon has a history of providing contractors with durable, high-accuracy lasers. The RL-H5 series offers contractors more operating options and affordable choices no matter what the job demands — whether it is machine guidance, checking grade, setting foundations and footings, checking excavations for pools, patios, or driveways,” said Murray Lodge, senior vice president of the Topcon Construction Business Unit.
Lasers in the series include options in working range of up to 800 meters and up to 100 hours of battery life. The RL-H5A with ±1.5 mm at 30 m horizontal accuracy will be available in the Americas, Europe and Oceania. An additional option, the RL-H5B, with ±3 mm at 30 m horizontal accuracy, will be available in the United States and Oceania.
“The RL-H5 builds on what Topcon has been bringing to the market for years and pushes the contractor’s productivity capabilities to the next level. It is another example of our commitment to The Intersection of Infrastructure and Technology, the point at which construction productivity can be improved by applying advanced positioning technology,” he said.
The series is covered by the five-year guarantee on Topcon manufactured lasers.
