ZipLevel PRO-2000 High Precision Altimeter

Unlike a rotary laser, ZIPLEVEL®  lets you truly work alone to quickly and easily level and read elevations directly in unmistakably clear digits. NO MORE rods, tripods, sensors, line-of-sight, error with distance, factory calibration or tedious computations. Now you can measure over any distance or elevation on earth, from paper thickness to the height of a mountain without error-inducing tabulation or math.

The ZIPLEVEL® PRO-2000 consists of a Base Unit that stores its hand held Measurement Module, 100' (60m) of interconnecting Cord, User Guide and all accessories. Accessories include, a rubber protective Boot for the Measurement Module, a Unipod for measuring without bending and a pair of stakes to secure the Base Unit on a hillside. The fully extended Unipod doubles as a 4' (121.9cm) vertical calibration standard for the system.


Set-up Vertical Range

  • Measurement Module: 1lb. (0.45kg)
  • Total Weight: 12 lbs. (5.50kg); 8 lbs. (3.65kg) PRO-2000B

  • Measurement Module: 3.75”H x 4.75”W x 1.75”D (9.5cm H x 12.1cm W x 4.5cm D)
  • Base Unit: 16.0”H x 10.5”W x 7.5”D (40.6cm H x 26.7cm W x 19.1cm D)
  • Much like a water level, the builder’s level and rotary laser simply create a flat reference plane that you hope is reasonably level if the instrument hasn’t been jarred out of factory calibration enroute to the job site. On the job where profits are measured in time, conventional levels make you work long and hard.

    Both the set up and pack up require five to ten minutes each due to tedious coupling, calibration and decoupling of delicate components while jockeying with one or more protective cases. This overhead often causes workers to avoid checking jobs leading to costly errors.

    To further complicate your work, the real world has hills, valleys, grading, excavations and visual obstructions. If you want to measure a change in elevation you must read and subtract numbers from a rod where larger readings mean lower elevations and smaller readings mean higher elevations.

    Visual obstructions require multiple setups, differential leveling and of course more error inducing, counter-intuitive rod readings and math. In all but rare exceptions, your work is done at a different elevation than the instrument height so you must have a rod man locate a laser beam while you, for example, adjust concrete forms far below. This is not the advertised one man operation . . . and don’t forget, you must frequently charge or change both laser and sensor batteries.

    The revolutionary ZIPLEVEL® PRO-2000 is a high precision altimeter that not only levels but reads elevations in unmistakably clear digits while solving all of the foregoing problems. Savings start with the two second set up and five second pack up time so there is no excuse to avoid checking a critical measurement.

    A press of the Measurement Module Zero key anywhere within the 40’ vertical set up range sets an infinite size level benchmark plane. It’s like setting a laser instrument height at the elevation where you might wish to level.
