Agatec SmartRod - digital laser receiver and staff

Innovation: increasing accuracy and reducing leveling survey times.

The Smart Rod is a revolution in laser receivers for use with rotary laser levels. Now you can survey elevations 4 times faster with the SmartRod laser receiver and integrated digital leveling staff. The new SmartRod instantly detects the laser beam anywhere on the receiver and and gives the user an accurate digital readout on the SmartRod LCD display. No staff / rod-reading errors, and no tedious calculations for cut-and-fill, just push a button and read it directly on the LCD! The SmartRod: a true innovation to save surveying time and add to measuring accuracy.

Agatec SmartRod Receiver - Overview

Traditional way

  1. Find the beam within 6 cm.
  2. Find the center of the beam.
  3. Elevation must be read on the rod. It requires knowledge in reading graduation rods.
  4. Must calculate manually.

SmartRod way

  1. Find the beam within 16.5 cm
  2. No need to find the center
  3. Elevation is directly given as a number
  4. The SmartRod does the calculation and shows the result

Why is it unique?

SmartRod is a laser receiver built into a telescoping rod, with unique features that eliminate the usual calculations required when using a receiver on a grade rod.

  1. Quick to catch the laser beam
  2. Time saving
  3. Innovative & precise

Why Smart?

Look at its head!

Window (reception area) is so much larger!16.5 cm on the SmartRod vs. only 6 cm on a standard detector.

Linear Receiving Technology (LRT): The beam has only to touch some part of the window; it does not need to be in the center. The SmartRod "finds" the center.

Smarter & faster than a standard detector.

With a detector, the user must find the beam first (so that the beam is hitting the detector’s reception window), then has to go up and down some more to get the center of the detector right on the beam.

Tape measure mode

Measure heights up to 4 m / 13' 4" m in tape measure mode.

A complete device, with a 3 line illuminated LCD display and flip-out endpiece for accurate measurements from corners and edges. Thanks to the IP54 class, against dust and splash water, and a rubber grip for easy handling, AgaTape can be used in indoor and outdoor sites.

With 3 lines illuminated display and flip-out endpiece for accurate measurements from corners, the AgaTape performs all the functions needed in your job.

The SmartRod is a laser receiver built into a telescoping rod, with unique features that eliminate the usual calculations required when using a receiver on a grade rod. It provides a digital readout in three modes: basic elevation readings, cut-and-fill calculations, and height and width measurements (tape measuring mode, not requiring a laser). It can receive reference elevation information from all rotating lasers.
