Basic Operation

The rotating beam

created by the Rugby 55 provides a 360
°

plane
of laser light up to 500 ft. (150 m) radius from the laser when used
with a sensor.

The rotating beam is used to create a horizontal line on a wall or as a
level reference for hanging ceilings or taking grade readings.

In the laying down position the rotating beam creates a vertical plane
for layout work, as well as transferring points from the floor to the
ceiling.


The Rotating Beam
