The Proshot Alpha 1 is a compact and robust construction grade automatic level with class leading features. Californian designed and manufactured, the Proshot Alpha construction laser is designed for earthmovers, concretors and general contractors that require a reliable and accurate laser to meet ther needs year after year.
With a Class 1 laser classification, Safework Australia deem the Proshot Alpha I to be Safe for use under all Conditions of exposure - Making it the only laser in it's class that can be used on any site in Australia without the need for a safety officer, signage or laser operator training. Larger civil companies have increasingly strict site safety requirements, having a hassle free Class I laser onsite could mean the difference between continuing your work and being kicked off site - Saving you time and money!
|Classification||Description||For use in building and construction industry?|
|Summary of the Australian Standard 2397:1993 - Safe use of lasers in the building and construction industry|
|Class 1||Safe for use under all conditions of exposure.||Yes|
|Class 2||Low-powered lasers that may require some administrative controls but present little hazard (for example, eye protection is usually provided by normal blink and aversion responses).||Yes, but with Administrative Controls|
||These lasers emit higher levels of light and their use requires more stringent engineering and administrative precautions in order to ensure they are not used with optical instruments (for example, a builder’s level or theodolite) which would concentrate the beam so that it would all enter the eye.||Yes, but with Administrative Controls and Precautions|
|Class 3R||These lasers operate at the same power levels as Class 3A but have higher levels of irradiance (power density). These lasers can be used for building or construction applications but should not be used in dimly lit building or construction applications (that is less than approximately 100 lux).||Yes, with Administrative Precautions and not in a|
|Class 3B||These lasers emit either invisible or visible radiation potentially hazardous to the eye and skin. These lasers must not be used for building or construction tasks.||No|
|These lasers are high-power devices capable of producing diffuse reflections hazardous to the eye. Skin exposure to the direct beam of a Class 4 laser is also hazardous. These lasers must not be used for building or construction tasks.||No|
Each Proshot Alpha is hand manufactured and tested at Laser Reference in California, USA. Unlike similar brands of lasers, Laser Reference have low ongoing maintenance and repir costs - Authorised Repair centres still repair and stock parts for units well over 15 years old. Unecconomical write-offs are an uncommon occurance with Proshot Lasers, reasonable parts pricing and long warranties mean your Proshot laser will be your onsite companion for many years into the future. With authorised Australian dealers and repiar centres in every state and capital city you'll never be short of support for your Proshot.
The Proshot Alpha laser is built amazingly tough to handle real world use and abuse. By using over engineered levelling motors and kevlar drive components the factory are able to back this laser up by providing it's customers with their Guardian Knockdown warranty - They will cover any internal parts damaged by a 1.5 metre drop up to 5 years! and after seeing this video below - you'll see why!
For grading applications such as driveways, drainage, carparks - the Alpha can be driven to match any slope up top ±8%. Unlike other lasers, once a grade has been set the Alpha's self-levelling function is still operating - If the laser is knocked, or temperature / vibration has caused a height variation the laser is still able to compensate.
For laser guided machine control applications the Alpha has got you covered. A high speed 1200RPM mode has been built in that will give you twice as many laser strikes per second than other lasers in this class. What does this mean for the operator? Smoother control and higher accuracy.
With 115 operating hours, the Alpha 1 has one the longest operating times in the market. This laser will give you over a month of operation using just a single set of batteries.
We understand that no one contractor is the same so we have tailored kits to suit earthmovers, concretors, general builders even Billiard Table installers! The choice of receivers range from simple up and down and on-grade lights to millimetre readouts. Got an excavator, bobact or dozer? we can package the Alpha with a range of machine display receivers from display only systems for fast trenching upto fully automated dual hydraulic control systems - Call us to find out what it on offer for your industry.
