Lasers

How do you recognise the laser feature from SOLA?

Our multi-award-winning laser range was launched in 2009 and we have been adding to it ever since: whatever the trade application, SOLA can provide you with the right laser for all levelling tasks. Our consistent user-orientated laser technology is integrated in our robust devices and ready for use at all times thanks to its innovative battery technology.

LINE LASERS

The laser point is refracted by a tube lens. Unlike with a point laser, this produces a laser line, creating a precise, highly visible reference for the user. It is possible to create projections of individual lines and likewise more complex line panoramas.


ROTATION LASERS

The laser point is deflected at a 90° angle by a pentaprism. If the prism is rotated, the laser point creates a pulsed 360° laser line, which can be used for precise levelling and to align objects. They are used when surfaces need to be mapped or a reference level is to be created. The levels can be created horizontally and vertically. What is more, inclination functions make it possible to measure even complex gradients using one or two axes.


SOLA LITHIUM-ION BATTERY TECHNOLOGY

This type of battery offers many advantages compared with Ni-MH technology. Li-ion batteries have a high energy density with a relatively low weight. They are not susceptible to ‘memory effect’ and require shorter charging times. Ni-MH batteries lose power continuously and show a high level of self-discharge. Li-ion batteries offer high performance right to the end. Sola lasers with Sola Li-ion battery technology offer better visibility with significantly longer operating time.


IP PROTECTION BY SOLA

  • IP52 is recommended for devices, used mainly inside, but also in a wet environment.
  • IP54 is necessary for all devices, used inside, as well as outside.
  • IP66 is used for all devices, used mainly outside in all weather conditions and additonally on very dusty sites.

WAVELENGTHS OF LIGHT

The human eye is sensitive to light in the wavelength range of about 711 nm (red) to 389 nm (violet). Thus short-wave ultraviolet light or ultraviolet light, as is known, is invisible to us. SOLA laser devices operate in a range of 680 nm (red) to 529 nm (green) and therefore easily visible to the human eye.

LASER CLASSES

Laser classes are generally divided into two groups. Those that conform to the European standard EN 60825-1 and those that conform to the American standard FDA 1040.10:1.4.97
