Calibration Fukuda FRE207 FRE208

Calibration Fukuda FRE207, a guide.   The Fukuda FRE207 and FRE208 rotating laser level models feature digital grade/slope setting and can be used for general site levelling as well as plumbing and earthmoving applications.  As with other Fukuda models, these are some of the least expensive laser levels in their class.  Again as with other Fukuda models, you will find this laser sold under a large number of brands and also on sales sites such as eBay unbranded.

Other brands and models that can be calibrated using the following instructions include;  Tuf DGR Dual Grade Laser, PLS HDR1000, Powerline A6, Swiss Level L690-2S, Imex 99DG, Black Max Dual Grade, BeeLine Kube4 (slightly different key layout), Able F207, Triton TL208 and many more.

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.

Calibration Methods

There have been two methods over the age of these models to enter into calibration mode.

Method 1 involves Pressing and holding the “Power” button for a number of seconds.  The calibration screen appears with numbers for the X and Y axis settings.

Method 2 involves pressing and holding the “G” or “grade” button again until the calibration screen appears.

Once into calibration mode the rest of the procedure is the same for both older and newer models.

When first into calibration mode the “X” axis will flash and the laser is ready to adjust this axis.  To toggle between the “X” or “Y” axis press the X/Y button, the corresponding axis flash on the screen.  Both the keypad or remote can be used to select axis.  Note the direction of the axis is usually marked on the casing of the laser itself.

To alter the height of the beam on the selected axis press either the up or down arrows (sometimes buttons are marked as “+” and “-“).  This can be done on either the keypad or the remote control.

To save the new value for each axis press (short press) the Grade/Slope (G) button either on the remote or laser keypad.

As always check again and reset if required then repeat the operation for the second axis.

This method should be good for all the above models and more.

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 and send it to a laser level service centre.
