New Product Release: R-1357-2.4ZB Android PDA Display

Ultra-rugged, next-gen R-1357 PDA features Android OS & versatile Read16 software

April 8, 2020

Hamar Laser Instruments has released its new R-1357-2.4ZB Wireless PDA Readout. “We’re excited to release this ultra-rugged Android PDA, our first Android product, with more being planned for the future,” said Rod Hamar, President of Hamar Laser Instruments. “With IP68 and MIL-STD-810G environmental ratings and a new rugged design, our R-1357 is our next-gen wireless target data display that will serve our customers for many years to come. It features our new Read16 Android software with updated screens, more familiar operating functions and easier program flows.”


The new R-1357 seamlessly integrates a next-gen Trimble Android PDA with Hamar Laser’s new Read16 proprietary software and a Zigbee® 2.4 GHz RF module offering these features:

  • Displays readings for up to 5 single-axis and two 2-axis targets, and the feature-rich package offers mode selections for numerous alignment functions, a laser setup wizard, graphic displays of target readings for roll alignment, a data-taking module, adjustable data averaging, and a data screen that summarizes the target readings.
  • Zigbee® uses a frequency-hopping protocol to avoid interference with other devices operating at the same frequency, so 2 or more systems can work in the same area and not interfere with each other.

Available now, the R-1357 replaces the R-1356 and, like its predecessor, the new PDA works with Hamar’s A-1519 and A-1520 wireless targets and its entire line of lasers, including all L-740 / L-730 series auto-rotating lasers and L-702SP combination laser.

" I’m a field vibration analyst with CMS, a company that provides full-service PM support. The [X-990] is the best shaft alignment system I’ve ever used, and I’ve used it to align everything from extremely small pumps to large pumps for power plants. There’s a lot I like about Hamar’s [X-990]: You can leave the heads in one position and make the vertical and horizontal moves, a big time-saving feature. It’s extremely accurate, transmits alignment data wirelessly using Bluetooth and has a very intuitive, easy-to-use software package [Couple6]. It incorporates ambient lighting correction and has a sun filter for outdoor jobs, and it uses a PC tablet instead of a dedicated display. This tool makes us really shine as reliability pros. We’ve been very happy with Hamar Laser and the [X-990]!"
