Topcon will replace the current RL-SV Series rotating laser with the new RL-HV2S built for multitasking – capable of horizontal, vertical, single, or dual-slope applications. Slopes up to ±5% (±15% with tilting plate) can be used in either the X or Y axis. Topcon says the RL-HV series can be turned on its side for layout and alignment jobs.

The new lasers can be remotely controlled and calibrated from a smartphone using the Laser Manager app – no special remote control needed.

Laser Manager, the new mobile app, is said to significantly simplify operation and puts many of the most common laser functions directly on the user’s own mobile device, such as setting up position and slope, setting up rotation speed, and different working modes.

Topcon says the new self-inspection mode increases the speed of setting up the laser and allows the user to adjust the laser beam on all axes. The Laser Manager App is available free of charge in the Google Play store as well as in the Apple App store.

  • Class 1 laser has an operating range of more than 2,625 feet (800 m) diameter
  • 120 hours operating time on alkaline batteries or 65 hours with rechargeable Ni-MH pack
  • Its IP66 rating means the RL-HV2S can withstand dust and torrential rainfall
