DR400 Digital Rod
The Spectra Precision® DR400 DigiRod™ digital rod is a versatile, revolutionary tool that eliminates the need for grade rods when checking grades with a rotating laser. The combination of a laser receiver with digital readout, laser distance meter, and built-in tilt sensor provide the information required to take rod-less, accurate grade readings, even at tilt angles up to 30 degrees.
Various grade rods can be emulated including direct elevation rods, cut/fill rods and indirect reading rods. Units of measure are selectable with the press of a button in meters, decimal feet or fractional inches. Elevation measurements can be taken up to 6 meters (20 feet) and the tilt sensor ensures accuracy by automatically correcting to actual vertical distance. The user simply places the laser distance meter spot on the location a grade check is required, picks up the rotating laser beam anywhere on the reception window, and the distance from ground to the rotating beam is measured and displayed.
Based upon the popular HL700 Laserometer, the DR400 DigiRod functions as a laser receiver and will work with any rotational red beam laser.
As a stand-alone laser distance meter, the DigiRod is designed to give contractors a one-person distance measuring and estimating tool to measure remote and difficult-to-reach places such as high overheads, factory interiors, or over water.
