Economical Trimble Laser for Interior Applications
and General Construction
Durable, Easy-to-Operate Horizontal and Vertical Rotating Laser with Plumb/Perpendicular Capability
SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 26, 2004 -- The Spectra Precision® Laser HV201 from Trimble (NASDAQ:TRMB) is a portable, horizontal and vertical laser for a variety of interior and general construction applications.
Positioned as an entry-level laser, the Spectra Precision Laser HV201 is highly intuitive, requiring minimal training. The unit offers fully-automatic, self-leveling setup in both horizontal and vertical orientations. Its visible beam can be directed or rotated at four preset speeds, and the scanning functions are designed to make it easier for the contractor to perform interior layout and aligning.
The composite material housing of the Spectra Precision Laser HV201 is rugged, lightweight, and weatherproof, making it easy for a contractor to carry and use in demanding jobsite conditions. The robust design allows the unit to be dropped up to 1 meter (3 feet) onto concrete and still remain functional, reducing costs for downtime or repair. With a wide self-leveling range and intuitive operator controls that feature one-touch power leveling, the Spectra Precision Laser HV201 is designed to increase jobsite productivity.
The Spectra Precision Laser HV201 is available in two basic configurations. The Interior Package is for installing ceiling grids, locating finished floor levels, laying out interior walls, and checking counter and cupboard elevations. The General Construction Package is designed for leveling, establishing vertical alignments and squaring / maintaining layout requirements on residential and small commercial construction projects. Accessories can be added to either package to customize the product's configuration for meeting specific needs.
The new Spectra Precision Laser HV201 horizontal and vertical laser is available now through Trimble's Construction Instruments dealer network.
