Safety Notes

Working safely with the measuring tool is possible only when the operating and safety information are read completely and the instructions contained therein are strictly followed. Never make warning labels on the measuring tool unrecognisable.
SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

  • Caution – The use of other operating or adjusting equipment or the application of other processing methods than those mentioned here, can lead to dangerous radiation exposure.
  • The measuring tool is delivered with a warning label in German language (marked with the number 4 in the representation of the measuring tool on the graphic page).
    Icon
  • Before putting into operation for the first time, attach the supplied sticker in your national language over the German warning label.
  • Do not direct the laser beam at persons or animals and do not stare into the laser beam yourself. This measuring tool produces laser class 2 laser radiation according to IEC 60825-1. This can lead to persons being blinded.
  • Do not use the laser viewing glasses as safety goggles. The laser viewing glasses are used for improved visualisation of the laser beam, but they do not protect against laser radiation.
  • Do not use the laser viewing glasses as sun glasses or in traffic. The laser viewing glasses do not afford complete UV protection and reduce colour perception.
  • Have the measuring tool repaired only through qualified specialists using original spare parts. This ensures that the safety of the measuring tool is maintained.
  • Do not allow children to use the laser measuring tool without supervision. They could unintentionally blind other persons or themselves.
  • Do not operate the measuring tool in explosive environments, such as in the presence of flammable liquids, gases or dusts. Sparks can be created in the measuring tool which may ignite the dust or fumes.

Assembly

Inserting/Replacing the Battery
Using alkali-manganese or rechargeable batteries is recommended for operation of the measuring tool.

To open the battery lid 5, press on the latch 6 and fold the battery lid up. Insert the batteries/rechargeable batteries. When inserting, pay attention to the correct polarity according to the representation on the inside of the battery lid.

Always replace all batteries/rechargeable batteries at the same time. Do not use different brands or types of batteries/rechargeable batteries together.

  • Remove the batteries/rechargeable batteries from the measuring tool when not using it for longer periods. When storing for longer periods, the batteries/rechargeable batteries can corrode and discharge themselves.

Operation

Initial Operation
  • Protect the measuring tool against moisture and direct sun light.
  • Do not subject the measuring tool to extreme temperatures or variations in temperature. As an example, do not leave it in vehicles for longer periods. In case of large variations in temperature, allow the measuring tool to adjust to the ambient temperature before putting it into operation. In case of extreme temperatures or variations in temperature, the accuracy of the measuring tool can be impaired.
  • Avoid heavy impact to or falling down of the measuring tool. Damage to the measuring tool can impair its accuracy. After heavy impact or shock, compare the laser line with a known horizontal or vertical reference line.
  • Switch the measuring tool off during transport. When switching off, the levelling unit, which can be damaged in case of intense movement, is locked..

Switching On and Off
To switch on the measuring tool, slide the On/Off switch 2 to the “On” position. Immediately after switching on, the measuring tool sends laser beams out of the exit openings 1

  • Do not point the laser beam at persons or animals and do not look into the laser beam yourself, not even from a large distance.

To switch off the measuring tool, slide the On/Off switch 2 to the “Off” position. When switching off, the levelling unit is locked.

  • Do not leave the switched on measuring tool unattended and switch the measuring tool off after use. Other persons could be blinded by the laser beam.

Operating Modes

After switching on, the measuring tool is in crossline operating mode with automatic levelling.
To change the operating mode, press the “Mode” button 8 until the requested operating mode is indicated by the corresponding illuminated operating-mode indication 10.
The following operating modes are available:

Indication Operating Mode

Indication

Cross-line operation (see figures A, B and E): The measuring tool generates a horizontal laser plane (360° rotating laser line) and a vertical laser line

Horizontal operation (see figure C): The measuring tool generates a horizontal laser plane.

Vertical operation (see figure D): The measuring tool generates a vertical laser line.

All three operating modes can be selected either  with or without automatic levelling.

Automatic Levelling

Working with Automatic Levelling

(see figure F–G)
Automatic Levelling
Automatic Levelling

When working with automatic levelling, the indicator for working without automatic levelling 11 may not be lit. If required, switch the automatic levelling on again by pressing the “Lock” button 7 so that the indicator 11 goes out.

Position the measuring tool on a level and firm support, attach it to the holder 12 or to the tripod 17.

After switching on, the levelling function automatically compensates irregularities within the self-levelling range of ±4°. The levelling is finished as soon as the laser beams do not move any more.

If the automatic levelling function is not possible, e.g. because the surface on which the measuring tool stands deviates by more than 4° from the horizontal plane, the levelling warning indicator 9 lights up red and the laser is automatically switched off. In this case, bring the measuring tool to the level position and wait for the self-levelling to take place. As soon as the measuring tool is within the self-levelling range of ±4°, the levelling warning indicator 9 goes out and the laser is switched on.

When not within the self-levelling range of ±4°, working with automatic levelling is not possible, because it cannot be assured that the laser lines run at a right angle to each other.

In case of ground vibrations or position changes during operation, the measuring tool is automatically levelled in again. To avoid errors, check the position of the horizontal and vertical laser line with regard to the reference points upon relevelling.

Working without Automatic Levelling

(see figure E)
Automatic Levelling

When working without automatic levelling, press the “Lock” button 7. When the automatic levelling is switched off, indicator 11 lights up red.

When the automatic levelling is switched off, the measuring tool can be held by hand or placed on an inclined surface. In cross-line operation, the two laser lines do not necessarily run at a right angle to each other.

Working Advice
  • Always use the centre of the laser line for marking. The width of the laser line changes with the distance.
Working with the Tripod

A tripod 17 offers a stable, height-adjustable measuring support. Place the measuring tool via the tripod mount 3 onto the 1/4″ male thread of the tripod 17 or a commercially available camera tripod and screw the locking screw of the tripod tight.
Adjust the tripod roughly before switching on the measuring tool.

Fastening with the Universal Holder

BOSCH PLL 360 Cross Line Laser Instruction Manual Operating Modes

With the universal holder 12, you can fasten the measuring tool, e.g., to vertical surfaces. The universal holder is also suitable for use as a ground tripod and makes the height adjustment of the measuring tool easier.

Fold the holding plate 14 of the universal holder 12 upward (a) as shown in the figure, so that it engages in this position. Lower the holding plate with adjustment knob 13 to the desired height (b).

When using as a wall mount, fasten the universal holder 12 as vertical as possible to a wall with the holding plate folded up. Secure it safely against slipping off, e.g., with a fastening screw (commercially available).

To use the universal holder as a table tripod, fold out the base plate 15 until parallel to the holding plate (c).

Screw the 1/4″ screw 16 of the wall mount into the tripod mount 3 of the measuring tool.
Adjust the universal holder roughly before 12 switching on the measuring tool.

To fold the universal holder 12 together, push the base plate 15 back against the corpus of the holder. Raise the holding plate 14 with adjustment knob 13 to the highest position. Then push the holding plate downward against the corpus.

Laser Viewing Glasses (Accessory)

The laser viewing glasses filter out the ambient light. This makes the red light of the laser appear brighter for the eyes.

  • Do not use the laser viewing glasses as safety goggles. The laser viewing glasses are used for improved visualisation of the laser beam, but they do not protect against laser radiation.
  • Do not use the laser viewing glasses as sun glasses or in traffic. The laser viewing glasses do not afford complete UV protection and reduce colour perception.
