Receiver REC 300 Digital GB Operating instructions GB Operating instructions The STABILA REC 300 Digital is a simple-to-use receiver for the rapid capture of rotating lasers. The REC 300 Digital receiver can receive laser beams from rotation lasers, even when these are invisible to the naked eye. The distance to the “on line“ position is indicated digitally We have endeavoured to explain the unit's handling and functioning in as clear and comprehensible manner as possible. If, however, you still have any unanswered questions, we should be pleased to provide advice over the telephone at any time on the following telephone number: 0049 / 63 46 / 3 09-0 Main components 12 13 6 7 9 8 5 100 mm 4” 11 9 1 5 3 10 2 4 1.

An audio signal and a short flash from the display will confirm, that the instrument is switched on. The instrument will now calibrate itself. 1. 2. ON/OFF button Automatic calibration Press the ON/OFF button (1) quickly once (2sec) to switch the instrument off. If the instrument is not used, it will automatically switch itself off after 30 minutes. Height difference display: analogue 20 display steps indicate the divergence from the centre of the laser line. The central bar indicates the “in line” position of the REC 300 Digital. The arrow increases in size as the distance from the “in line” position increases. Rapid beeping note = too high / back Continuous tone Slow beeping note = “in line” = too low / forward Audio signals 2 Setting the volume The volume is increased/decreased by repeatedly pressing the button (2): (a) Loud (a), soft (b) or off. If the instrument is set to “silent” only a short beep is emitted when the laser beam is received.

A soft cloth and mild soap and water are effective. The unit may be submerged under water or sprayed with a low pressure hose if necessary. Do not use any other fluids other than water or glass- cleaner, as they may attack polymer components. Prohibited Uses - Operation without instruction. - Operation other than the intended uses. - Opening the detector, except the battery compartment. - Modification or conversion of the detector. Important information - The person in charge of the detector must understand the instructions in this manual and ensure other users do also. - Periodically carry out test measurements, particularly after the detector has been subjected to abnormal use and before and after important measurements. Positioning and adjustment of the instrument. When setting up the instrument, take care that the laser beam does not produce any unwanted reflections from reflective surfaces. These reflections may also be captured by the receiver and produce incorrect readings.
