Trimble’s new transmitters offer easy set-up and higher accuracy

Trimble has introduced its new Spectra Precision Laser GL700 series of grade transmitters. Each model in the GL700 series is designed for simple setup and use, and delivers high accuracy over a variety of existing machine control, general construction and agricultural applications to perform grade work. The GL700 series uses advanced technology that offers higher stability and more consistent accuracy over wide areas as well as automating complex alignments. After identifying specific jobsite requirements, contractors can choose from several different models ranging from economical single grade transmitters to advanced, long-range radio remote controlled dual grade transmitters. These new models offer the most innovative collection of features ever available in a grade laser transmitter. The Automatic Axis Alignment feature allows contractors to align either side of any grade axis to within 40 degrees of the remote point. This simple, one-person operation allows contractors to roughly align the transmitter with the new Long-Range Radio Remote, which provides immediate confirmation of the alignment. This new exclusive two-way remote control allows access to all transmitter functions and grades. Another new feature for the series, Planelok, virtually eliminates beam drift by locking the laser beam to a fixed elevation and remaining exactly at that elevation all day regardless of wind or temperature changes. The new Spectra Precision Laser GL700 series from Trimble will be available in the first quarter through the Engineering and Construction Division dealer network.
