The instrument is equipped with a Power mode.
Switching on the instrument activates the Power
mode and the laser lines are bright and highly visible.
If the high visibility of the laser lines is not required
and if in addition energy should be saved, then
pressing the Pulse key {B, 2} activates the Pulse
mode.
To be able to detect the laser lines over long
distances (> 20 m) or in unfavorable lighting conditions, a laser detector can be used. In Pulse mode,
the laser beam is also recognized over large distances
by the detector.
(Laser detector refer to accessories)
Laser functions
Pressing the ON-key {B, 1} activates the following
laser functions:
Pressing the ON activates

Checking the accuracy of the
Makita SK102
)
Check the accuracy of your Makita SK102
regularly and particularly before important leveling
jobs.
Checking the accuracy of the leveling
Refer to drawing {J + K}.
Set the instrument on a stand halfway between two
walls (A+B) that are approx. 5 m apart.
Set the Lock switch {B, 3} to the "Unlocked" (
)
position.
Point the instrument to wall A and switch the instrument on with the Laser ON {B, 1} key . Activate the
laser crosshairs with the Laser ON {B, 1} key and
mark the point of intersection of the laser crosshairs
on the wall A (-> A1).
Rotate the instrument by 180° and mark the point of
intersection of the laser crosshairs on wall B (-> B1).
Then place the instrument at the same elevation as
close as possible to wall A and again mark the point
of intersection of the laser crosshairs on wall A (->
A2). Rotate the instrument by 180° again and mark
the point of intersection of the laser crosshairs on
wall B (-> B1). Measure the distances of the marked
points A1-A2 and B1-B2. Calculate the difference of
the two measurements. If the difference does not
exceed 2 mm, then the Makita SK102 is within the
range of tolerance.
| (A1 - A2) - (B1 - B2) | ≤ 2 mm
Makita SK102
Checking the accuracy of the horizontal line
D
Refer to drawing {L}.
Place the Lock switch {B, 3} in the "Unlocked" (
)
position.
Position the instrument approx. 5 m away from the
wall. Point the instrument at the wall and switch the
instrument on with the Laser ON {B, 1} key . Activate
both laser lines with the Laser ON {B, 1} key and
mark the point of intersection of the laser crosshairs
on the wall.
Swivel the instrument to the right and then to the
left. Observe the vertical deviation of the horizontal
line from the marking. If the deviation does not
exceed 3 mm, then the Makita SK102 is within the
range of tolerance.
EN
Checking the accuracy of the vertical line:
Refer to drawing {M}.
Place the Lock switch {B, 3} in the "Unlocked" (
)
position.
As reference, use a plumb bob and mount it as close
as possible to an approx. 3 m high wall.
Position the instrument at a distance of approx.
1.5 m from the wall at an elevation of approx. 1.5 m.
Point the instrument at the wall and switch the
instrument on with the Laser ON {B, 1} key . Activate
the vertical laser line with the laser ON {B, 1} key.
Swivel the instrument until the vertical laser line is
slightly above the ground on the plumb-bob. Now
determine the maximum deviation of the laser line to
the plumb bob over the entire length of the line.

Care and operating notices
)
Do not immerse the instrument in water. Wipe off dirt
with a damp soft cloth. Do not use aggressive
cleaning agents or solutions. Treat the optical
surfaces with the same care that you would apply to
eyeglasses or a camera.
Severe vibrations or dropping the instrument may
damage it. Before starting it up, check the instrument
for possible damage. Regularly check the leveling
accuracy of your instrument.
Should your Makita SK102 be outside of the
specified tolerance, please contact an authorized
dealership.
