Oct. 21, 2013 – To celebrate Drainage Contractor’s 40th anniversary, we’re looking back on news and new products from the past four decades. This week’s Forty-year flashback is a new product announcement from Laser Alignment, and was published in the 1996 edition of Drainage Contractor magazine.

Sensor for machine control

Laser Alignment has launched a new machine control sensor, the DepthMaster-200. This new sensor is lightweight, portable and is battery operated. CAB, or Constant Accuracy Band, is Laser Alignment’s method of assuring constant accuracy with changes in distance, environment and laser transmitter or rotation speed. The Depth-Master-CAB technology averages the laser spot size and assures consistent accuracy in all conditions.

Additional features include: over 48 hours of on-board rechargeable Ni-Cad battery operation; low battery light indication when six hours remain in battery life, shake to wake function, where the unit shuts down all non-essential electronics after five minutes of non-use. The movement of the machine restarts the DepthMaster. Additionally, after one and a half hours of non-use, the unit shuts off completely, saving battery life; and front and back display allows for easy viewing from all angles.
