When Precise Laser Transmitter Alignment is Needed
When the following conditions apply, the laser transmitter requires precise alignment.
The laser transmitter is being used on steep slopes (1% or over).
You are working at long distances from the laser transmitter.
The job requires high accuracy.

Laser transmitter misalignment (1) Alignment Point 2 (2) Cross Axis Point 2 (3) 1° Pointing Error (4) Alignment Point 1 (5) Cross Axis Point 1The following scenario gives you some idea of the error that can be caused by misalignment of the laser. Assume that a laser transmitter has a 1 degree misalignment to the left side of the true direction centerline. There is also a 10 m distance between the direction centerline and Cross Axis Point 2. The grade in the direction axis is 0%. Illustration 1 shows this scenario.The following table shows the errors that are associated with the misalignment.

Distance between Cross Axis point 1 and point 2 (Meters)     Cross Axis Grade (%)     Elevation Error (Meters)

30     2.5     .013    
100     2.5     .131

If you need to align the laser transmitter precisely, follow the instructions below:
Set up the laser transmitter directly over a reference point (alignment point 1).
Press the power button in order to turn on the laser and allow the laser to self-level. The laser always powers up in the automatic self-leveling mode. When the head begins transmitting, the laser is level.
Use the sighting grooves on the top of the laser transmitter in order to roughly align one axis to a second alignment stake (alignment point 2).
Enter a 0% grade into both axes (grade and cross slope).
By using a grade rod and laser receiver at point 2, adjust the laser receiver until you get an on-grade reading.

Precise alignment of the laser transmitter (1) Alignment Point 2 (2) 5% Cross Slope (3) Alignment Point 1
Enter a large grade (+5.000%) into the cross slope axis. This means that the laser plane is raising to the right side of the laser transmitter. Illustration 2 shows these points.
Take a second reading at point 2.If the second reading is equal to the first reading, the axis is aligned correctly.If the second reading is above on-grade, use the clockwise button on the laser transmitter to internally rotate the axis clockwise until you get an on-grade reading again.If the second reading is below on-grade, use the counterclockwise button on the laser transmitter to internally rotate the axis counterclockwise until you get an on-grade reading again.
The laser is now aligned, and you can enter the necessary percent of grade for the appropriate axes.Note: If you are using a laser transmitter that is equipped with a remote control, there is an automatic method of precise axis alignment available. Follow the instructions for the automatic axis alignment in the Operator's Manual for the laser transmitter.
