Trimble’s Spectra Precision DR400 DigiRod combination productivity tool is a versatile tool that eliminates the need for grade rods when checking grades with a rotating laser. The combination of a laser receiver with digital readout, laser distance meter, and built-in tilt sensor provides the information required to take rod-less, accurate grade readings, even at tilt angles up to 30 degrees. Various grade rods can be emulated including direct elevation rods, cut/fill rods and indirect reading rods. Users can select measurement units in meters, decimal feet or fractional inches with the press of a button. This eliminates the need to carry, transport and maintain multiple grade rod types. Elevation measurements can be taken up to 6 meters (20 feet) and the tilt sensor ensures accuracy by automatically correcting to actual vertical distance. www.trimble.com.
