How To Use Pipe Laser — Pipe laser can be setup in few different ways. First of all, the pipe laser can be set in the pipe. It can be set up in a pipe 6″ or in a much greater pipe. In addition, pipe lasers can be put on tripod or setup on a trivet plate that can be push inside the manhole. Much more it can also setup on a spreader bar that will stretch inside the manhole.
How To Use Pipe Laser
When you setup the pipe laser make sure that you align the laser in the pipe or on the invert. Also, align the level vial that is located behind the handle of the laser so that it is in the center position.
Grade Calculating for Pipe Laser
#1. First, determine the elevation contrast between the two manholes that you are grading.
#2. Now, find the distance between the two manholes that you are grading.
Furthermore, divide the elevation difference by its run (5.53 / 123.33 = .0433 rise for one foot of the pipe). Now, if the pipe laser that you are using reads the pipe slope in percent (it is when the rise is at 100 feet) then you multiply the rise for one foot of the pipe x 100 to get the percent of the slope. This is How To Use Pipe Laser.
Calibration the Pipe Laser
To turn on the grade setting first you must turn on the laser by pressing the key power. Then, the laser beam and display will flash with the last value you entered. Moreover, use the + and – keys to select your desired grade. In addition, the + is upward from the exit window. When your desired grade is already displayed, you can now press the set key.
Now, the laser will self-level to the grade that you entered. Moreover, when the laser beam remains on and the “HOR” is continually displayed on the LCD screen, the entered unit has not been self leveled. Furthermore, line adjustment is now adjusted by either left or the right arrow keys. It is appropriate to start with the line adjustment in the middle.
Leica Piper 100 with Over-The-Top Assembly
This powerful and compact pipe laser is the only pipe laser that can fit inside a 100mm (4 inch) pipe. Moreover, it is built with a solid cast aluminum housings, and loaded with great features that will improve your productivity and minimize downtime on every job site. In fact, it is ideal anywhere line and grade is required. Furthermore, it has a large clear display that makes it easier for contractors to read the grade. Also, the line, position, battery status, and the level indication.
What’s more is that, the intelligent battery monitors the amount of charge/discharge so that every contractors are aware of how much battery life have left. Leica Piper’s bright, visible beam point of convergence is focused to maintain its crisp, clear spot and size over long distances. Moreover, the automatic grade coverage easily identifies and corrects the grade errors. Additionally, it automatically self-levels over a full grade range, and eliminates the need to tip the laser for steep slopes. Furthermore, the Piper 200 features the Alignmaster function, it is a patented automatic targeting system that searches and finds target for fast second setups.
