New Spectra Precision DG613 & DG813 Dialgrade Lasers


 New Spectra Precision DG613 & DG813 Dialgrade Lasers


 Compact, Tough and Smart Pipe Lasers

DG613 DG813



Spectra Precision is pleased to announce a new generation of Dialgrade® pipe lasers – DG613 & DG813. They may be smaller than previous models but pack a serious punch. The length of the unit has been reduced to make it easier to set up the laser into tight inverts in the manhole. Both models have a grade range from -12% to +40% and are fully self-leveling over the entire grade range. Even the cross axis is fully compensated – providing quick set up and peace of mind that the laser will be level without having to adjust it at the bottom of the invert.

The DG613 & DG813 work over a distance of 500 feet (150m) providing full operation in a single set-up between manholes. The new RC803 remote control provides full function control and utilizes infra-red light in the pipe for up to 500 feet (150m) control. For “Over-the-Top” setups, the remote utilizes radio communications up to a distance of 430 feet (130m).

Flexible power options provide 40 hours operating time with NiMH rechargeable batteries with a worldwide charger and 50 hours with alkaline batteries. Alkaline batteries can be used directly in the laser without a separate battery pack. An additional car charger is available for work in remote areas.

The large graphical user interface can be seen easily when the laser is in a manhole. All functions are available via graphical menus which make it simple and easy to use – no secret button pressing and a short learning curve means it can be handed to anyone in your crew with little or no training. The same graphical user interface is used on the RC803 remote control.

Line alert makes the beam blink if the setup is disturbed, eliminating costly re-work. Both the DG613 and DG813 have the ability to align to the next manhole from a short, deep trench as the beam will move up to 100% in seconds and can then be adjusted left or right for direction alignment. For an accurate second day setup, both models offer line scan functionality which allows the user to quickly align to the target at the center of the last pipe.

The ST802 Transporter extends the radio operating range between the RC803 and the DG813/DG613. Setting up the transporter on top of the manhole ensures the radio connection at the end of the last pipe is still available. The ST802 is standard with the DG813 and optional with the DG613.

The SF803 Spot Finder, when used with DG813, provides advanced automatic functions:

  • Spot Align – DG813 automatically aligns the beam to the center of the Spot Finder

in the pipe or to the direction of the manhole when used in a trench or “Over-the-

Top” application.

  • Spot Match – a great tool for checking that the pipe has been installed to the

correct grade or for measuring the grade value of an existing pipe. Can also be used

to calculate the grade between manholes.

  • SpotLok – can be used to easily establish a steep slope reference or to lock the

beam in a desired position for applications such as solar farms where the beam

could be subject to drift.

  • Spot Search – can be used to manually locate the beam over long distances out of the trench

The DG613 and DG813 will begin shipping February 22, 2016. For more information please visit or contact your nearest Spectra Precision distributor.
