Trimble Introduces New Rugged Green Beam Laser System for Interior Construction

High Visibility, Proven Durability, Easy-to-Operate Rotating Laser


NASHVILLE, Tenn., March 27, 2009 — Trimble (NASDAQ:TRMB) today introduced the new Spectra Precision® Laser HV301G Horizontal and Vertical Laser. The automatic, self-leveling HV301G laser offers exceptional versatility and superior green beam visibility for increased productivity in a wide variety of horizontal, vertical and plumb applications.

The announcement was made today at INTEX EXPO 09, the premiere interior and exterior commercial construction show.

The HV301G green laser beam is easy to see in interior jobsite conditions. The superior visibility of the green beam is useful for extended working ranges or in bright conditions. The beam stays visible for efficient work in these less than ideal conditions.

The HV301G laser transmitter sends a continuous, self-leveled 360-degree laser reference over an entire work area. Four rotation speeds and four scanning angles allow contractors to concentrate the laser beam in their work area for maximum visibility. A simultaneous 90-degree reference beam is included and is used in layout work and point transfer.

Designed to be used by interior contractors, the HV301G laser is easy to set up and use. Intuitive controls allow operators to carry out many functions with simple one-touch commands. A 360 degree remote control is included and allows operation of key functions over the jobsite.

Electronic automatic self-leveling in both horizontal and vertical modes assures accuracy. A height of instrument alert turns the beam off when the elevation of the laser changes or is disturbed. The laser can also be used in the manual leveling mode for slope applications such as matching existing ceiling slopes.
 
Vertical applications are as easy to set up as horizontal applications. No additional vertical mounting brackets or trivets are necessary. Simply setup the laser on the built-in no-slip rubber footpads or mount vertically to a tripod with the built-in standard size tripod mount.

The HV301G is rugged for the toughest jobsite. Highly durable construction enables the HV301G laser to survive a drop of up to 3 feet (1 meter) onto concrete. IP54 sealing assures the laser is unaffected by dust or moisture.

The performance of the Spectra Precision Laser 300 series has been proven reliable in tens of thousands of units sold and working throughout the world. The HV301G is expected to be available in April through Trimble's Construction distribution channel.
