Frequently Asked Questions

What is a laser detector?

A laser detector, also known as a laser receiver or a laser sensor, is designed to detect and locate the beam produced by a laser level, particularly while leveling outdoors or in wide areas.

How does a laser detector work?

When leveling, a laser detector produces short beeps when it’s close to the level line and a solid beep when it has found level. When grading, it produces quick beeps if it needs to be moved downward, slow beeps if it needs to be moved upward, and a solid tone when it is on grade. Most detectors also have LCDs, which show the level or grade.

Is it necessary to use laser detectors?

Using a rugged laser detector or a laser receiver for excavator is a must when working outdoors since a laser beam under broad daylight is not that visible to the naked eye.

How do I set up a laser detector?

  1. Secure the detector on its holder on the laser grade rod.
  2. Aim the detector toward the laser level.
  3. Adjust the detector until it receives the signal from the laser level.

What should I look for when buying a laser receiver?

While you can easily find a universal laser detector online, it’s best to check if it’s compatible with your laser level unit. It’s also a good idea to check its accuracy, working range, and dust and water protection rating.

Laser Detectors

When working on construction projects, laser levels are convenient devices to use to level, square, and establish grades and slopes. However, because of the inconvenient conditions outdoors, such as long distances and brightly lit settings, finding the projected lines, points, and planes tends to become more difficult than a treasure hunt. In this kind of situation, a laser detector, also known as a laser sensor or laser receiver, will turn out to be useful as it can find the elusive beam produced by a laser level. 

The laser detectors here on Engineer Warehouse can detect lasers even over long distances⁠—some can do readings at around 60 meters while others can work over thousands of feet. Their long working ranges make outdoor leveling a whole lot easier as these detectors eliminate the difficulty of finding barely visible beams in bright light conditions. Since these handy devices weigh less than a pound, carrying them anywhere won’t be a problem. Results are clearly displayed on their LCD screens, perfect for checking results under broad daylight. They also come with clamps or brackets to easily mount them on surfaces. With laser detectors, projected lines, points, and planes that cannot be seen by the naked eye can be instantly found in outdoor areas.
