“All components are newly designed to offer the users the maximum performance at an affordable price,” said Tony Vanneman, TPS construction product marketing manager. “The RL-H4C is an addition to the popular RL-H series of rotating lasers, satisfying the increased demands for job site durability, range, accuracy, versatility and cost-effectiveness.”

In combination with the new laser sensor LS-80L, the RL-H4C “dramatically increased the operating range to 800 meters (more than 2,620 feet) in diameter, which is more than a 100 percent increase over previous models, and is the longest range for its price level,” Vanneman said.

In addition to the superior cost-performance ratio, the RL-H4C has a number of industry-leading features:

  • ±10 arc-seconds horizontal accuracy
  • ±5 degrees self-leveling range
  • Longest battery life in its class – 100 hours with four D/LR20 alkaline batteries, 60 hours with Ni-MH rechargeable battery; also can operate with AC power
  • On-the-fly battery recharging
  • Single-axis manual slope capability for grade-matching setting
  • IP66 protection against dust and water
  • Large dual handles for easy carrying and set up

Vanneman said, “This new self-leveling laser has many applications regardless of the type of projects, including machine guidance, site grading, setting up concrete work for foundations and footings, checking excavations for pools, patios, fences, driveways and all types of remodeling jobs.

“Any job where contractors use optical levels, the construction-site tough RL-H4C with its 800 meters working range and IP66 rating can do the work.”

Vanneman said the RL-H4C is covered by the new five-year guarantee on Topcon-manufactured lasers.
