Fukuda FRE203 & FRE301 Based Models Calibration
The Fukuda FRE203 and FRE301, like other Fukuda models, is sold by many different brands around the globe and is also sold unbranded at very low price online on sites such as eBay. It’s not of the highest quality but does provide a lot of features for a low price. You will find the sale price of these model varies massively from brand to brand, as does after-sales service.
The Fukuda FRE203 FRE301 is also the basis of other models utilising the same core components but with fewer buttons on the control panel and fewer features. many of these cut down models utilise the same or very similar calibration procedure. Often on the cut down models, a compatible remote is required to calibrate the laser and sometimes this is not supplied with the laser when sold. If you have a remote from any one of the brands utilising this model then they will work with all brands.
Some Brands using the same internals
list of brands and models which can be calibrated using the following procedure (note some will need the remote control).
Linestorn SRL 105 – IMEX 88R, 88G, 66R, 77R – Bee Line HV – South 650 series – MCE Rotec – Powerline, Lasertec, General (most models) – Swiss+Level Basic HV – PLS 505, 505G, HR1000 – TUF HV, HVG – Draper 24322 – BMI UNILASER – Iglobalbuy – CPI models – Haupar plus many more, please let me know any more to add.
The keypad will differ from model to model but the basic layout will be the same, the remotes always look pretty much the same across all brands if supplied.
To enter calibration mode for X axis (axis is often indicated on the top of the laser housing) you press the Power button on the laser level then press and hold the “Up” and “Down” arrow buttons for 3 seconds, the left LED light should now flash indicating its in calibration mode for the X axis. To adjust the height of the beam on this axis press the “Left” and “Right” arrow buttons. If your model does not have these arrow keys then you will need a compatible remote control, note this is not always supplied with the laser level. The save the new X axis level press and hold the “Up” and “Down arrow buttons until the left LED light stops blinking.
For Y axis power up the laser once more but this time press and hold the “Left” and “Right” arrow buttons until the right LED light flashes. Use the “Up” and “Down” arrow keys to shift the height of the Y axis beam until it is at the correct level. The to save this new height press and hold the “Left” and “Right” arrow keys until the right LED light stocks blinking.
This method should be good for all the above models and more. I, however, have not personally tried all of them.
As always the Laser Level Review does not take any responsibility for your actions whilst using our guide. If you are at all unsure, do not attempt to re-calibrate your laser, send it to a laser level service centre.
