Max. Power Output: ≤ 5mW
Wavelength: 625-645nm
THIS TOOL EMITS LASER RADIATION. DO NOT
STARE INTO BEAM. AVOID DIRECT EYE EXPOSURE.
ATTENTION
IMPORTANT
• Read all instructions prior to operating this laser tool. Do not remove any labels from tool.
• Do not stare directly at the laser beam.
• Do not project the laser beam directly into the eyes of others.
• Do not set up laser tool at eye level or operate the tool near a reflective surface as
the laser beam could be projected into your eyes or into the eyes of others.
• Do not place the laser tool in a manner that may cause someone to unintentionally
look into the laser beam. Serious eye injury may result.
• Do not operate the tool in explosive environments, i.e. in the presence of gases or
flammable liquids.
• Keep the laser tool out of the reach of children and other untrained persons.
• Do not attempt to view the laser beam through optical tools such as telescopes as
serious eye injury may result.
• Always turn the laser tool off when not in use or left unattended for a period of time.
• Remove the batteries when storing the tool for an extended time (more than 3 months)

2. detector connection screw
• Attach the detector on the clamp
holder by the detector connection
screw.
• Attach the grade rod clamp to the
grade rod or other types of surveying
rods by tightening the clamp bolt on
the grade rod clamp holder.
(d) Detection
1. Coarse detection
• Aim the receiving window at the
rotating laser instrument. Loosen the
clamp bolt and move the detector up
and down to receive the laser
signals transmitted by the rotating
laser instrument.
• When the instrument displays like
Fig. (A), move the instrument down
as indicated by the arrow. When it
displays like Fig. (B), move it up as
indicated by the arrow.
• When Fig. (C) is displayed, the detector is level with the laser beam.

• Press coarse/fine detection button. The
detector is now in fine detection.
• Move the instrument up and down like the
coarse detection procedure.
(e) Horn
• Press the horn button. The sound symbol is displayed and the horn
is ready for the sound function. The detector then conducts
coarse/fine detection through sound (beep) signals.
• When the horn signal is a fast beep, move the detector up.
• When the detector makes short beep, move it down.
• When the detector makes a continuous sound, it is level with the
laser beam.
• If there is no beep heard, the instrument has not received the laser
beam signal.
(f) Turn-off timer
• The detector will automatically turn off if it has not received a laser
signal for 10 minutes
(g) Detector Maintenance
• When you are done using the detector, return it to its case.
• Keep the instrument, particularly the detecting window, clean. If
unit becomes dusty, use a clean cloth to gently wipe it clean.

• Avoid knocking the unit over or allowing it to fall on the ground.
• Although the instrument is rain resistant, you should avoid
submerging the unit in water or other liquids. If unit comes into
contact with water or other liquids, wipe it dry immediately.
• Do not use unit around fire or expose it to fire in any way.
8. Self-Check
IMPORTANT: It is the responsibility of the user to verify the
calibration of the instrument before each use.
Level Vial Self-Check
A. X/Y-Direction Level Vial Self-Check
1. Fix the instrument on a platform or a tripod. A tripod with level
vial is preferable.
2. Center the bubbles of X/Y-direction vials by adjusting the
leveling knob.
3. Turn the instrument by 90° 3 times to observe whether the
bubbles are centered at all position, the instrument is now level.
B. Z-Direction Vial Self-Check
1. Put the instrument with
adjusted X/Y-direction
vials on tripod 3 feet (1m)
from wall A, and level the
3’
50’
laser. Project laser beams
to wall A and wall B respectively, and mark the laser points
shown on walls as e1 and f1.
18
©2007 Johnson Level & Tool
2. Put the instrument in the vertical position on the tripod.
3. Face the instrument
towards wall A, and adjust
the leveling knob to center
the bubble of Z-direction
vial. Project laser beam
and mark e2 for the laser
point shown on wall A.
4. Measure the distance between e1 and e2.
5. Turn the instrument 180° to face wall B, and turn the adjusting
knob and mark the laser point projected on wall B f2.
6. The distance between e1 and e2 should equal the distance
between f1 and f2.
Instrument Accuracy Self-check
1. Put the instrument on a
tripod in the center of two
parallel walls that are 50 ft.
apart, with the instrument
facing left, as shown. Aim the
instrument at wall A and wall
B respectively to project the
laser beams, and mark point a1 and point b1 for the laser
points shown on walls.
2. Move the instrument 3 ft. (1m) from wall A and level it, with
the front still facing left. Repeat step 1, and mark the projected red laser points as a2 and b2;
©2007 Johnson Level & Tool
19
3. Measure the distance between a1 and
a2, and between b1 and b2.
If the distance between a1 and a2 +
b1 and b2 is greater than 1/8” at 50
ft.,the accuracy is beyond tolerance,
