Product overview:

We are main UK Distributors for the FUKUDA brand of lasers, where the FRE-205 is by far the most popular in their range. We have been selling it for many years and these kits have proved to have a very good reliability record.

 

The FRE-205 is a horizontal levelling laser which has been designed specifically for exterior Groundworks but at a very affordable price. It is constructed with a rugged housing and has an automatic drift system (bump sensor), together with the facility of Dual Grading; making this the laser of choice for Groundworks Contractors working to a budget.

It is also suitable for use indoors, where the rotating speed can be reduced to improve visibility of the laser beam by eye - but it has no Scan function.



Features:

Horizontal setting only.
Anti-drift protection system. (bump sensor)
Dual grading in X / Y axis.
Automatic / Manual mode is easliy selected.
Variable speed rotation for maximum visibility in any lighting conditions.
Wide electronic self-levelling range (ie. It will auto level on surfaces up to +/-5 deg.)
Low battery indicator - so you don't run out of power at the wrong time!
Heavy duty glass enclosed beacon and durable sealed housing is water and dust-proof (to IP54), to ensure years of reliable operation.

Posted by alex on Wednesday 31st of August 2016

Question:

how often should my laser level be re calibrated?

Answers:

  • Posted by Laser Levels Online - Support on Wednesday 31st of August 2016

    Hi Alex,

    There is no set period on how regularly a laser needs to be calibrated.The laser automatically self levels within about 18-20 seconds and if it cannot find level it will not rotate - warning you it is out of level.

    At that point and that point only would it need to come back for calibration.

    I hope this helps.

    If you have any further questions or require any additional assistance please do not hesitate to contact us.
     
    Best regards

Question:

Does the detector have 24 months warranty like the Fre-205 laser level itself?

Answers:

  • Posted by Laser Levels Online - Support on Friday 22nd of April 2016

    The detector has 12 months Warranty and the FRE-205, 24 months parts & labour Warranty.

Posted by Craig marshall on Wednesday 7th of October 2015

Question:

Can this laser be set lower than the receiver. For example if I'm building a footing and I want to set the laser at floor level, can I then tell it to set the level 150 for example to allow for joists ect?

Answers:

  • Posted by Laser Levels Online - Support on Wednesday 7th of October 2015

    Hi Craig

    The FRE-205 rotary laser level (like all others) only sets true level to a detector positioned in its line of sight. It will not give an offset similar to the example you gave of 150mm, to allow for floor joists etc.

    Some more specialist laser detectors like the Spectra HL450 & HL700's will show an offset but its limited to 40 & 50mm respectively. Where you need to allow for larger values, it must be done by simple vertical measurement.

    regards
