The Kapro 990V-41-24 Zeus Vision box level is 48 inches long and has an accuracy of 0.5 mm/m and a graduation (also called sensitivity) of 60 seconds. The level has three acrylic vials that are shockproof and resistant to damage from ultra-violet rays. Two vertical vials display readings on the front of the level for taking accurate plumb readings from a comfortable position. The horizontal vial is magnified and illuminated for clear readings in dim light. The ergonomic handles are non-slip, and the polypropylene and thermoplastic rubber caps on both ends have shock absorbers that protect the level from damage if dropped. The level is made of aluminum, has a polyester, electrostatic powder coating that is corrosion resistant, and an anti-stick coating for easy cleaning.
|Dimensions||2.6 x 48 x 1.2 inches (H x W x D)|
|Number of vials||2, plumb; 1, level|
H is height, the vertical distance from the lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.
Levels are instruments that determine the true horizontal or vertical plane of a surface. The most common type is the spirit level, or bubble level. Spirit levels have a liquid-filled, bowed tube (also called a vial) with a bubble that moves in response to slight adjustments. When the bubble settles between marked points on the vial, it indicates that a surface is horizontally or vertically straight. Levels can have one or more vials to determine the horizontal plane, the vertical plane, or various points between, simultaneously. One example is a 45-degree angle. Some levels include a laser-line indicator that projects a horizontal or vertical beam on a surface. Bullseye levels, or surface levels, are circular, flat-bottomed spirit levels that determine whether a surface plane is level. Machinists’ levels are made of metal and have surfaces designed specifically for rugged use in a machine shop or tool room. Levels can range from highly complex and accurate machines, such as those used in surveying and construction, to precision instruments used in carpentry and other building trades, to simple, pocket-sized devices for do-it-yourself projects.
