Using the Tripod

NOT INCLUDED

A tripod can be purchased from your nearest measurement tool dealer. The below instructions are generic only and set-up methods may vary between models.

Refer to the documentation from the tripod manufacturer for details.

Extend the tripod legs to the required height and ensure the legs are spread wide enough so that the tripod platform is stable. Secure the legs in place (refer to the documentation from the tripod manufacturer for details).

Place the laser level onto the tripod and mount via the male thread (5/8” or 1/4”) into the base until firm. Do not over tighten as this may cause damage to the laser level or tripod.

NOTE: adjustment methods will vary on tripod models. Always ensure that any locking levers are unlocked before making adjustments and returned to the locked position when the adjustment is complete.

If using an elevating tripod with a measuring scale on the centre column, the height can be adjusted as required.

!

WARNING!

Attaching the laser to a tripod without the correct thread size may cause damage.

Care & Maintenance

1. This is a precision measuring tool and should always be handled with care and transported within the carry pouch provided.

2. Always turn the tool off when transporting the laser level or moving around the job site.

3. Whenever possible, store the tool in a dry, shady location.

4. When the tool is not in use or is being stored, it is highly recommended to remove the batteries.

5. Calibration of the tool is recommended every six months, if ongoing accurate levelling is required, or an impact has occurred.

6. The operator should check the accuracy of the tool before precision levelling is attempted. Failure to do so may result in inaccurate measurements.

Trouble Shooting

ERROR / PROBLEM

Laser level does not power on

CAUSE / SOLUTION

Check that the battery is charged.

Check the battery compartment for signs of damage and ensure that the compartment and battery terminals are clean.

Laser level does not remain on for long periods of use

Laser level does not level in the unlocked self-levelling mode

Detector does not detect the laser beam

I am seeing multiple lines on the same wall / surface area in parallel to one another

Check that the battery is charged.

Check the battery compartment for signs of damage and ensure that the compartment and battery terminals are clean.

The laser level may be outside of its self-levelling range and may require an adjustment before self-levelling can commence.

The laser level may have impact damage and may require repairs to become operational.

Check that the laser level is powered on.

Check that pulse mode on the laser level has been activated.

Check the detector battery. The battery may require replacing.

Check that no highly reflective surfaces are on the opposite side of the laser level (e.g., glass). Reposition the laser level to another area or block the laser beam from reflecting off the reflective surface.

If the lines are not in parallel you are seeing a diffraction line from the laser level. This is common due the design optics of

3D laser levels.

If the above troubleshooting steps do not resolve any issue that you may have, please contact 24-hour support.
