Overview for the Leica Rugby 280 Dual Grade Laser
The Leica Rugby 280DG grade laser is a multipurpose construction laser level with fully automatic, dual grade capability for measuring slopes. This rotary laser has an operating radius of 1,150 feet and has the ability to tilt on both axes for accurate indoor and outdoor measurements. The Rod Eye Plus laser receiver with 9 arrow display channels extends its range up to 1,500 feet and has three LEDs that can be used as a reference for the receiver’s position. Equipped with a large LCD display, an easy-to-use keypad and extensive features, the Rugby 280DG ensures accurate measurements.
Highly Accurate Performance
To precisely lay out a construction site, install ceilings and partitions, building parking lots and runways, align concrete forms and many more, the Leica Rugby 280DG is integrated with a self-leveling horizontal and vertical accuracy of 1/16th inch per 100 feet. It can be mounted on a tripod and includes a 90-degree plumb beam. It also has 4 adjustable head speeds and 3 scanning modes to easily match your needs.
The Leica Rugby laser level has automatic dual grade up to +/-15% in both axes with an accuracy of 1/8th inch per 100 feet. With a large, backlit, graphic display, the Rugby 280DG provides easy grade entry by selecting the axis, then pressing up or down to enter the required grade. You can also press the Star button to open the menu and change settings.
Leica Rod Eye Plus Receiver
With a working range of up to 1,500 feet, Rod Eye Plus is the ideal tool when you want to use the Leica Rugby 280DG outdoors. This laser receiver detects and ignores the flash from strong strobes on the job so that they will not interfere with the Rugby laser’s function.
This laser detector boasts three different detectable accuracies – fine, medium and coarse. The 9-channel arrow display and audio output provide you with all the information needed to lock on the laser beam. It has two, large graphic displays and three LEDs that can be used as a reference for the receiver’s position. The Rod Eye Plus also has a detection height of 2 inches and a versatile rod bracket to secure mounting to both square and oval rods.
Grade changes can be set and locked in the menu to prevent error, while the beam masking function turns off the laser beam on up to three sides to prevent unwanted disturbances. This Leica dual grade laser also alerts you if the device has been moved or bumped and self-levels within +/-5 degrees. It also comes with a two-way remote control that allows you to change the laser’s functions up to 330 feet away.
Tough and Rugged Design
With a rating of IP67, the Rugby 280 DG is dustproof and can survive water immersions up to 3 feet. It has a high impact, glass filled housing and a solid metal base, making it one of the toughest and most durable laser in the industry. This dual grade slope laser operates up to 70 hours using alkaline batteries and approximately 40 hours using rechargeable NiMH batteries.
This Leica dual grade laser package comes with a Rod Eye Plus with bracket, remote control, carrying case, laydown bracket, rechargeable battery pack, charger, AC power cable and a 2-year manufacturer’s warranty.
