Is it compatible with the DeWalt DW087K / DW087KD?

The DE0892 is only compatible with the DW087K / DW087KD if it does not have a 10mm screw thread visible (as indicated in the picture below). This is because the DW087K / DW087KD was revised in November 2013 to have a pulsed output mode used to transmit levels to the Detector. The omission of the 10mm screw thread is the only visual indicater ensuring compatibility.

Is it compatible with Rotary Lasers?

The DeWalt DE0892 is NOT COMPATIBLE WITH ANY ROTARY LASER LEVELS. Or any Cross Line Laser which is not listed above.

Calibration and servicing:

We check and calibrate all Lasers prior to dispatch, to ensure they meet or exceed the manufacturers published specifications at the time of shipment from the factory.
If you routinely work on large job sites, which require you to have a physical Calibration certificate, issued in your name and matched to the Laser via its serial number, you must ensure you tick the above box marked "Paper Certificate" (where applicable) to add a Calibration certificate to your order. The Certificate will then be generated and included with your Laser. Please note the issuing of a Calibration certificate DOES NOT delay or hold up the despatch of your Laser in any way.

Mounting clamp bracket
9V battery

    Hi Paul,

    It's only compatible with the Stabila REC 220 - which unfortunately is not a product we sell.

Is the De 0892-xj compatible with the the Dw089lr/lg


  • Posted by Laser Levels Online - Support on Monday 27th of November 2017

    Hello Noel

    The Dewalt detector we stock is the DE0892:

    It is compatible with the RED beam laser DW089LR.

    However Dewalt do a green beam version too (DW089LG) but this is NOT suitable for use with our DE0892 detector.

    Best regards
