Model: FRD800R

Availability: Sold Out - More Coming Soon!

Product overview:

Fukuda Lasers have developed a "top of the range" detector for the Professional Trades person which is easy-to-use and accurate. It is ideal for use with any brand of rotating red beam laser level.


The FRD800R Laser Detector is a highly versatile, well featured laser receiver for both basic and advanced leveling and aligning applications; designed for general, concrete and site preparation contractors.


It features a digital readout of elevation that provides a numeric display of +/-45mm to 1mm resolution. Accurate measurements can be made without moving the rod clamp, saving time and increasing productivity. The readout is displayed on large front and rear LCD's, showing exactly how far the elevation is from on-grade. A back-light assists readings in low ambient lighting. 


Selectable units of measurement can be displayed to meet your specific application: in mm, cm or inches. A 125mm long red pick-up window, more than double the industry standard, allows quick acquisition of the laser beam. Readings are shown in three ways: via back and front LCD, coloured LED indication and by audible sound, selectable loud/normal/off.


This detector is designed to survive tough construction site conditions, being water and dustproof to IP55.

It can be used as either a hand-held or staff mounted detector for a wide range of construction applications.


Digital readout of elevation to +/-45mm, so not only will high or low arrows be displayed, but the exact distance from grade will also be numerically displayed. This eliminates the need to get exactly "on-grade" to make measurements, thus speeding up setting-out.

Large 125mm reception height acquires the beam quickly and makes it easy to stay in the beam.

Simultaneous elevation LED's signal in low light levels and over a longer range for easier reading in poor light conditions.

Multiple deadband sensitivity settings, three in all, allows adaptation to meet all your jobsite requirements.

Dust and weatherproof housing to IP55.

Continuous usage, 40 hours battery life with auto switch off facility.
