SDL50 - A New Digital Level from SOKKIA for the Construction Industry

January 30, 2006

Sokkia has introduced SDL50, a reliable, easy-to-use digital level which now brings the benefits of digital leveling to construction applications at an affordable price.

Quick and easy

In combination with Sokkia's RAB-code staff, height difference and distance can be measured simply with the touch of a key in less than 3 seconds, with the result stored in the internal memory. The measuring distance is from 1.6 to 100 m (5.3 to 320 ft.)

Accurate and reliable

The standard deviation for 1 km double-run leveling is 1.5 mm. The same reliable compensator as used for the top-of-the-line SDL30 is incorporated providing a compensation range as wide as +/-15'.

With the "Height difference Measurement" function, the height of ceilings, bridges and other objects can be measured with ease. There is no need to change the measuring mode when the staff is held upside-down because the SDL50 automatically identifies the attitude of the staff.

Field-to-office data transfer

The large memory holds up to 2000 points of data. Using the software "SDL TOOL", the data can be imported in CSV format to be further processed in your own program.

Further convenience with setting-out program

The SDL50 incorporates the same Setting-out program as the SDL30. The most convenient setting-out method can be chosen from three possible options. For the U.S. market, fractional inch display is also available.

The SDL50 minimizes human error and maximizes the ease of leveling work, allowing an increased level of productivity and cost performance.
