To operate, a narrow laser beam provides a measuring reference line. The receiver measures where the laser line lands on an internal detector, and it determines the position of a machine or sub-assembly relative to the laser reference beam. The receiver can operate over distances measuring 100 ft. or more and deliver a measuring precision of 0.0005" and 0.002 degrees.
