Product overview:

A top-of-the-range model in the Fukuda Laser level family, available at a very competitive price.

 

The FRE-208 is a TRUE GRADE laser where the User can easily input the exact % of slope required, digitally. The instrument will then simply set the laser beam to that slope. This can be in one axis only (single grade) or in two axis X & Y for dual grading. A radio linked Remote Control with a 50m range makes this quick & easy.

The laser also has plumb up & plumb down, red laser dot beams. By mounting the instrument on its side, (called lay-down) this gives a squaring facility. ie. 90 degree setting out - a very useful feature.

 

Constructed with a robust, waterproof housing, an automatic drift system and the facility of radio controlled Dual grade - has made this the Grade laser of choice for Groundworks Contractors.

 

The FRE-208 is also suitable for indoor use, where the rotating speed can be reduced to improve visibility of the laser beam by eye; together with a concentrated beam, SCAN facility.


Slope/Grading Overview:

General builders, groundworkers, roofers and others often need to calculate slope or at least they must have some understanding of it.
Slope, grade, tilt or inclination can be expressed in three ways:

1)  As a ratio of the rise height to the run length (for example 1 in 20) or equally in terms of the fall height to the run length.
2)  As a percentage called the "grade" which is the (rise ÷ run) x 100; eg. 1m rise ÷ 20m run x 100 = 5% (instead of rise can read fall ).
3)  As an angle (almost always in degrees)

Of these 3 ways, Slope is normally expressed as a ratio or a percentage grade much more often than an actual angle and here's the reason why.....
Stating a ratio such as 1 in 20 immediately tells you, that for every 20 horizontal units measured, your height changes by 1 unit.
Stating this as a percentage, whatever horizontal distance you measure, your height changes by 5% of that distance.

Stating this as an angle of 2.8624 degrees doesn't give you much of an idea of how the rise compares to the run!

Features:

The FRE-208 (auto) self-levels horizontally & vertically, is accurate to +/-3mm over 30m & has a 500 metre diameter range using the supplied laser detector.

For site Groundworks use, this is a TRUE GRADE laser. Simply input the slope % directly within the range +10% to -10% of fall. This enables the User to accurately and easily set slopes (grades) in both X and Y axis, as required, with high precision and stability.

The kit includes a Radio Remote Control - to enable you to adjust the rotating speed (for indoor work) and outdoors - to set Grades (slopes), as described above. A very useful feature, which allows control from distance without the laser level being disturbed. Note: Outdoors: set the rotating speed to maximum (600rpm) to give the best operating distance with the supplied detector.

A rechargeable battery pack system is built-in and as back-up, the FRE-208 will operate on normal alkaline batteries too. We always keep spare rechargeable batteries in stock as part of our Spares, Repairs & full Calibration service.

Purchase options:

Upgrade the kit to include the Fukuda FRD800 Detector - The perfect choice for the Fukuda FRE-208!

 

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 FRD800 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.

 

Features:

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.
