Tilt LED:
LED light on = Tilt mode on; LED light off = Tilt mode off;
Flashing LED light = Tilt in warning mode
Beam Shield LED:
LED light on = shielding the laser beam in this axis
Power on/off:
Press
button, the lasers power is on, and the power LED
light goes on. When the power is turned on, the laser is in the
electronic self-leveling mode with an 800rpm rotate speed and
there is no beam shield area for approximately 90 seconds. The
laser will automatically enter into the “TILT” mode and the LED
light goes on.
Tilt mode:
Press
button, the LED
light will go on and the unit will be in
the TILT mode. If the unit is moved or bumped while in operation,
the laser will stop rotating and the laser beam and TILT LED will
both flash. Pressing the TILT button again will turn the TILT mode
off and the laser will electronically self-level itself and begin rotation.
Note: The TILT function does not operate in the slope mode.
Vibrate mode:
Press VIB button, the LED VIB will light, which means laser is in
vibrate mode. Vibrate mode allows continuous operation during
high winds, vibrations and shocks. Slight movements are ignored
and the laser self-levels only if significant movement occurs.
Press VIB button again, to turn vibrate off.

Beam shield mode:
Press the Beam Shield button of the axis you wish to shield the beam
from. The corresponding LED light will turn on and this direction
is shielded. From one to three quadrants can be shielded
simultaneously.
Remote control mode:
This laser can be operated with the remote control included. The
keypad of the remote control is shown in figure 7. The functions
of SLOPE, TILT, SHIELD, SLEEP, and SELF-CALIBRATION can all be
operated by remote control.

Press the SLOPE button to enter the SLOPE function. The SLOPE on
X-axis is set as the default. SLOPE LED light on in X-axis.
Press
button to adjust the slope angle on X-axis. Press the
SLOPE button again to change the SLOPE to the Y-axis. SLOPE
LED light on in Y-axis.
Press
key to adjust the
slope angle on Y-axis. If the SLOPE angle is beyond its range, the
laser will stop rotating and alarm horn will sound. When it is in
SLOPE mode, the laser will exit TILT mode automatically.
Sleep mode:
Press the sleep button
on the remote control to turn on/off the
sleep mode. The laser will not self-level and the laser beam will
shut off. The power LED light will stay on and all other LED lights
will turn off. All the buttons on the laser key pad will not operate
except the power button. All the buttons on remote control will
not operate except the sleep button. The laser will turn off after
30 min sleep. When turning off the sleep mode, the laser will
return to the mode it was previously in.
Alarming mode when beyond self-leveling range:
When the laser is tilted beyond its self-leveling range, it will stop
rotating and laser beam will blink and the alarm will sound.

8. Self-Check and Calibration
IMPORTANT: It is the responsibility of the user to verify the
calibration of the instrument before each use.
Accuracy Check
50’
1. Put the laser on a tripod 50’ away from the wall. Put the laser
on the tripod with X+ axis towards wall.
2. Power on and after self-leveling, using the detector, make a
mark “A” on the wall where the detector indicates on grade with
the laser beam.
3. Turning the instrument 90º, Y+, X-, Y-, after the laser self-levels,
mark “B” for Y+, “C” for X- and “D” for Y- on the front wall. Make
sure points B, C, D are in the same vertical line as point A.
4. Measure the vertical distance between the highest and lowest
points between A, B, C, D and mark that “h”.
5. If “h” is less than 1/32”, the accuracy is good. If it is more than
1/32”, the accuracy is beyond its tolerance and the laser needs to
be recalibrated.

Re-calibration
Referencing the results of the self-check and using the “h” mark (the
mid-point between the highest and the lowest point among A, B, C, D).
1. Enter self-calibration mode
a. Power off the instrument and face the X-axis towards the wall.
b. Press VIB button and
button simultaneously. Then
release the power button while still pressing the vibrate button.
Release the vibrate button after all LED flashes three times. The
laser will enter self-calibration mode and continuously rotates.
2. X-axis calibration
a. Opening the cover on the remote control, press the
button, the X LED light on the laser keypad
flashes
which means the laser has entered the self-calibration mode
for X-direction.
b. Press
button to make the laser beam move up and
down until it coincides with the “h” mark.
3. Y-axis calibration
a. Turn the instrument by 90º in self-calibration mode and
make Y-axis facing the wall.
b. Press
button, the Y LED light on the laser keypad
flashes which means the laser enters self-calibration mode for
Y-direction.
c. Press
button to make the laser beam move up and
down until it coincides with the “h” mark.
4. Self-calibration confirmation
Press
key after finishing re-calibration on both X and Y

axis. The re-calibration LED turns off and the value of the
re-calibration will be stored. The laser has now exited
re-calibration mode.
Note: In order to make the saved calibration effective, you must
power off the instrument after calibration, and then power it
on again. Y-axis accuracy check is a necessity after the X-axis
calibration, and X-axis accuracy check is also a necessity after
the Y-axis calibration. Laser re-calibration will not be finished
until both X-axis and Y-axis accuracy meet the specifications.
Detector Usage
1. Product Description
A laser detector is an indispensable accessory when using this rotary
laser level. The main function of the detector is to locate the position
of laser signals transmitted by rotary lasers. This detection quickly
and precisely provides the user with the horizontal reference. This
product features a high level of sensitivity, a double-faced display, low
power consumption, reliability and easy use.
