When will the new PLS lasers (3/5/6/180) have a rechargeable battery?

We will be launching a Li-Ion rechargeable battery pack in the first half of 2019. It will be available for purchase as a standalone accessory, and we are still working out details on how and when we will incorporate it into the primary tool configurations.

Will my old PLS accessories work with the new PLS tools released in 2019?

The answer is… kind of. The PLS 3 Floor Stand (PLS-20292) and our two metal L-brackets (PLS-20295 and PLS-21025) will work if you either add a washer or replace the knob with our new gray knob. The new products have a shallower depth so the current accessory screws are a bit too long. We will be posting a video soon with more instructions on how to modify your existing brackets.

The PLS 4 (PLS-21024) and PLS 5 (PLS-20844) floor stands are unfortunately too narrow to work with the new products.

The PLS 6R/G and PLS 180R/G models now operate in full time pulse/detect mode and are compatible with the PLS Red (PLS-60533) and Green (PLS-60618) SLDs. Our new PLS 3R/G and PLS 5R/G are NOT compatible with the PLS HVD 500 point detector (PLS-60545).

Do you still have the leather PLS laser pouches?

Unfortunately, no. We do still see them on job sites from time to time so we imagine you may be able to find a used one somewhere, but we do not currently offer the leather pouches. All of our new handheld lasers released in December 2018 use the PLS-60573 Nylon Laser Pouch (formerly the PLS 4 Nylon Pouch).

Will the new XLD Rotary Detector also work on the PLS line lasers?

No, the XLD Rotary Detector will only work with red and green rotary lasers. While we have only tested them with PLS rotary lasers, you may be able to use it with other brands as well.

Can I send my laser to you for calibration?

We currently do not offer any type of calibration services. If your PLS 3, 4, 5, 6, 180, 360, 480, HVL 100, or FT 90 is out of calibration, please use our 3-year warranty service to request a replacement product.

For our older PLS rotary lasers (HLE/HR/HVR/HDR) models, you may be able to pay for calibration services through a rotary service center/survey shop, and if within the 3-year warranty period, you may also request a new replacement product through your tool shop (where you made the purchase) or directly through Fluke/PLS.

For our new lineup of PLS rotary lasers (H2/HV2), we will be establishing a list of authorized service centers that can perform calibration services as well as warranty-covered repairs. When we release this list of providers, we will update this page and create a new page listing all authorized providers.
