Laser Tools Co., based in Little Rock, Arkansas, has released a laser product that can assist with solar panel alignment on roofs and at ground-level.
The company’s GLX350-10 model uses a 520-nanometer green laser light to project a dot with 1/8-in. accuracy at 100 ft. When used with the Model AP90C Beam Bender, two laser beams can be created — one concentric to the green laser’s case for outlining the solar array on the roof’s pitch and another 90° beam used to determine crossbeams. The AP90C Beam Bender can also shoot a one-time position for penetration and base mounts.
The GLX350-10 operates with six standard AA alkaline batteries for a continuous operating time of over 30 hours. The tool can be used in temperatures ranging from -20° to 60°C and is approved eye-safe by the FDA. The tool’s brass case is 17 in. long with a 1-in. diameter that can be mounted with AP351 1-in. Clamp Set to the AP353A Magnetic Dovetail Base Mount for easy install to the AP1000 Tripod Leveling Adaptor Plate for an overall visible range of over 1,000 ft. This can assist with ground-mount solar panel installation.
