New Topcon laser with mobile app display connectivity to bring improved productivity to today’s job sites

LIVERMORE, Calif., U.S./ CAPELLE A/D IJSSEL, the Netherlands  – Topcon Positioning Group announces mobile device connectivity control has been added to its pipe laser offering. By pairing an Android mobile device via Bluetooth with the new TP-L6 pipe laser, operators will be able to set up and make changes right from their phone to any of these lasers in their fleet. The mobile app connectivity is designed to provide greater flexibility for making adjustments and ease of use on the job site.


The operator can set slope and direction as well as plumb beam and various beam configurations from the mobile app; reducing the need to perform tasks such as physically entering manholes to make adjustments, allowing for greater efficiency and productivity. The operator also has the option to use the mobile device for individual pairings with multiple lasers, eliminating separate controllers for each instrument.

“In today’s world, we are navigating our daily lives with mobile devices and apps that improve efficiency more than ever before. Topcon has long been a leader in the industry with advancements in laser technology; and now, we are proud to add to that success by bringing mobile app connectivity and control for that segment,” said Murray Lodge, senior VP of construction for Topcon. “It is part of the company’s initiative to incorporate mobile app ease of use and ‘bring-your-own’ device functionality into more applications to accelerate workflows on the job site.”

In addition to the connectivity, another feature is the size of the instrument, smaller and lighter than previously available models, facilitating easier setup in a wider range of work environments.

“Topcon pioneered high-visibility Green Beam lasers two decades ago, and today our patented technology provides contractors the tools for the highest productivity in any type of pipe laying conditions,” said Lodge. “This new offering is a next step in giving our laser users improved profitability tools and a modernized approach to the digital job site.”

The app is available on Google Play. For more information about Topcon, always one step ahead in technology and customer benefits, visit topconpositioning.com
