Sokkia Renews the Automatic Level Lineup

OLATHE, Kan. – Sokkia Corporation announced the release of the new B series automatic levels – B20, B30 and B40 – that replace the previous lineup of the B and C series.

“The new B series automatic levels feature further enhanced reliability under all environmental conditions,” said Patrick Moran, senior regional manager. The water protection rate of the B series models has been increased from IPx4 to IPx6. “Tough and compact bodies are fully resistant to driving rain and splashing water from all directions. The advanced protection technology also prevents the telescope from fogging or condensing without using nitrogen gas.”

Moran said, “The optimally designed telescope provides an exceptionally bright and sharp view that reduces operator’s eye strain. An ultra-short focus distance of 20cm (7.9 in.) from the end of the telescope is the definite advantage for use in confined locations.

“The B series levels incorporate the most precise and reliable compensator available in the market today,” said Moran. Four super-high-tensile suspension wires and a magnetic damping system ensure accuracy and stability even when exposed to temperature changes, vibrations, or shock. “Sokkia’s SDL1X, the world’s highest-precision digital level that provides 0.2mm accuracy, employs the common basic mechanism for its compensator.

“The technological superiority of the Sokkia automatic levels has been proven since the release of the best-selling B2 model in 1963.” Moran said, “The new B series levels provide quick setup, easy sighting, and superior durability against vibration and shock, ensuring increased productivity over an extra-long period of time.”

B20: 32x magnification, 0.7mm accuracy
B30: 28x magnification, 1.5mm accuracy
B40: 24x magnification, 2.0mm accuracy

- Diagonal eyepiece
- 40x eyepiece for B20
- Optical micrometer for B20; providing increased accuracy of 0.5mm

The B series automatic levels are available through authorized Sokkia distributors.
