Topcon are well known for producing top-quality construction lasers and the Topcon RL-SV1S is definitely one of them.

It is designed for single slope applications and all your general leveling needs. It is built ‘Jobsite tough’ for the most demanding sites in town!

The single slope RL-SV1S is a high-powered laser with an operating range of over 800m (diameter) when used with the LS100D receiver – big enough for large sites. The included full-function RC-50 remote control allows you to adjust the RL-SV1S laser with ease from wherever you are on-site, which makes set up and use a one-person job when setting up slopes.

For single slope applications, slopes of up to +/-15% can be used in the x-axis. The setup of grades is extremely easy with a large backlit high contrast display.

Jobsite tough?


IP66 rating means it’s dust-proof and weatherproof so the apprentice can hit it with grinder dust and you won’t need to worry about that torrential rain that seems to come out of nowhere. The RL-SV1S will be as safe as houses – it’s built extremely rugged with easy-to-hold handles so you’ll always have good grip of your asset.

Battery life is up to 120 hours of runtime on alkaline batteries or 65 hours with the rechargeable Ni-Mh battery pack, which means it’ll still run long after everyone has gone home for the weekend and the week after… and maybe the week after that.

The Topcon LS-100D is a premium laser receiver designed to make elevation and vertical alignment control faster and easier for all applications with a digital readout of millimeters to grade. The large and bright LCD display is on both the front and back of the receiver so it’s easy to read front angles or when the grading pole is out in front of you. No need to bend around to see the front of the receiver and there is even a HOLD button for locking the display to easily read the elevation results. The 90mm reception height allows extra-wide beam capture so it’s easier to find the laser from a distance. There are four accuracy resolutions on the LS-100D from +|- 0.5mm to +|-10mm – this is one very accurate unit!

The Topcon RL-SV1S comes in a rugged hard shell carry case to keep your valuable asset safe. Also in the box is the RC-50 remote control, receiver rod clamp holder, NiMH rechargeable batteries, battery charger, and the upgraded LS-100D deluxe long range receiver.
