Laser Control
For Laser Control a laser transmitter is used to produce a plane of light which becomes the grade control
reference for the job site. The Laser Receiver controls the screed to lay a mat parallel to the laser beam
When the laser beam is in the center of the receiver, it indicates an On-Grade signal (Figure 26).

As the screed is raised, the beam of light hits the Laser Receiver below the center and a lower signal is indicated
(Figure 27 on page 16).
