Empire Level Introduces Industry’s First Auto-Calibrated Digital Level


Download PDFPDF File

Mukwanago (June 12, 2017) - Empire Level, the inventor of the torpedo level, continues to deliver innovative solutions for layout applications with the introduction of the UltraView™ LED Torpedo Level. With the launch of this new design, Empire further revolutionizes the torpedo level category by integrating dual ultraviolet LEDS, optical brightener, and high-contrast e-Band™ vials to deliver high definition viewing in all conditions.

“A lighted torpedo is the preferred tool for low light applications in electrical, mechanical, plumbing, masonry and general remodeling applications but, unfortunately, the options available today either lack durability or bubble visibility,” said Rick Gray, Sr. VP and GM for Empire Level. “We’re proud to announce that our new UltraView™ LED Torpedos don’t ask users to make this type of tradeoff. This new Torpedo not only features technology that improves vial visibility in these low light conditions, but delivers on the electronic durability and magnetic performance users need.”

Empire’s UltraView™ LED Torpedo Level is equipped with a patent-pending system that utilizes dual ultraviolet LED lights that surround each vial for maximum visibility and helps to illuminate the bubble meniscus - giving users the confidence that they are measuring correctly the first time, despite low light or dark conditions.

The new UltraView™ LED Torpedo features exclusive high contrast vial surrounds for industry-leading visibility, as well as a top read window for a clear overhead view. Empire’s patented e-Band™ vials also provide maximum visibility and durability.

Just like all True Blue® solutions, the new UltraView™ LED Torpedo represents the very best in high-performing layout solutions from Empire. A Ruler Groove on the top is designed for applications that require extended measuring and marking, allowing users to insert a straight edge into the groove to create a longer measuring surface and scribe more easily. This Ruler Groove doubles as a V-Groove to help the Level easily fit on pipes. An anti-slip Surface Grip on the back of the level also provides users with additional stability so the level doesn’t slip while in use. The new UltraView™ Torpedo Level is also designed with powerful rare earth magnets for a superior holding strength on pipe and other metal surfaces.

IP54 rated for protection from dust and water, Empire’s UltraView™ LED Torpedo Level is constructed from an all metal, I-Beam frame to withstand the harshest jobsite conditions and protect the level for long-life accuracy.* For added utility, a slim tapered design allows users to easily slide the Torpedo in and out of pockets and pouches.

The new UltraView™ LED Torpedo Level is a testament to Empire’s focus on developing new technology for layout and measurement applications that provides trusted accuracy from project planning through project finish. All True Blue® products are backed by a limited lifetime warranty and confirm Empire’s commitment to best-in-class durability and innovation.

* Limited Lifetime Warranty on the frame and vials, and a one-year Limited Warranty on electronics.

Empire Level Introduces Industry’s First Auto-Calibrated Digital Level


Download PDFPDF File

Mukwanago (January 2, 2017) - Empire Level delivers a game-changing solution for layout applications with the new e105 Series True Blue® Digital Box Levels. Built from the ground-up to provide inspector grade high-precision accuracy, the new levels are the first auto-calibrated digital levels on the market.

“Whether the user is double checking that an angle is within code before an inspection, or using the audible indication for hands-free operation, a digital level is in almost every professional’s arsenal of tools because of their incredible versatility and accuracy,” said Rick Gray, Sr. VP and GM for Empire Level. “With inspector grade features such as an IP65 Rating, multiple measuring display options, inspect mode and the industry’s first auto-calibrated set-up, these new digital levels represent the very best in high-performing layout solutions from Empire, wearing the True Blue® badge of honor.”

Ready to measure accurately when powered on, the new e105 Series’ auto-calibrated feature will allow users to get a clear and precise digital readout immediately. Empire’s auto-calibrated functionally helps to guarantee accuracy and efficiency as existing digital level solutions require a manual calibration, which is both a complicated and counter-productive process thay can include a large margin of error if not completed properly.

In addition, with seven measuring display modes, the new Digital Levels provide professionals the compatibility to make precision mode measurements in degree-tenths, degree-hundredths, mm/M or percentage, or the option to take rough-in mode measurements in degrees, in/ft. fractions or in/ft. decimals. For even further versatility, inspect mode allows for repeat inspection-grade measurements; an option that is ideal for code-specific applications such as ADA ramps or entrances.

Available in magnetic and non-magnetic, all of the new Digital Levels also feature an audio indicator that outputs a continuous tone when in level, dual backlit displays, and a hold function that allows the user to lock measurements in position for verification. For added utility, each also includes an overhead inverted display, top read digital display, surface grippers, and a tilt indicator.

Backed by a limited lifetime warranty on the frame and vials, the new levels are built for the jobsite with an IP65 rating for water and dust protection, shock absorbing removable endcaps, precision milled edges, and solid block acrylic e-Band™ vials.

The new e105 Series True Blue® Digital Levels are a true testament to Empire’s continued focus on developing advanced products for layout and measurement applications that offer trusted accuracy from project planning through project finish.

Download PDFPDF File

Mukwanago (December 2016) - Empire Level continues to drive true innovative solutions for layout and measurement applications with the introduction of the new e95 UltraView™ LED Series of Box Levels. Designed with dual ultraviolet LEDs, optical brightener, and high-contrast e-Band™ vials, the box levels bring a new level of technology to the jobsite – delivering high definition viewing in all conditions.

“Box levels are incredibly versatile tools, but because of their wide usage they’re often needed in low-light work environments. Users have had to resort to inefficient alternative lighting solutions, such as flashlights, or use current solutions on the market that fail to highlight the bubble meniscus,” said Lauren Weigel, Product Manager for Empire Level. “Empire’s UltraView™ levels are equipped with a patent-pending system that utilizes dual ultraviolet LED lights that surround each vial for maximum visibility and helps to illuminate the bubble meniscus - giving users the confidence that they are measuring correctly the first time, despite low light or dark conditions.”

Just like all True Blue® solutions, the new e95 UltraView™ LED Series represents the very best in high-performing layout solutions for Empire. Featuring precision milled edges and exclusive e-Band™ vials, these levels provide maximum visibility and .0005”/inch (0.029 degrees) accuracy. To meet the demands of the jobsite, the e95 UltraView™ LED Series of Box Levels are IP54 rated for protection from dust and water. The levels are constructed with a high strength, all-metal frame to provide maximum durability and eliminate common frame deformations frequently seen during harsh jobsite use. Empire’s patented Reinforced Vial Locking System protects the center acrylic block vial for longer life accuracy without compromising the 300° viewing window for enhanced visibility from any angle.

For added utility, the e95 UltraView™ LED Series are also designed with all-rubber, shock-absorbing endcaps that can be easily removed tool-free to use in tight spaces or in long distance scribe marking applications and provide increased protection from frequent drops and damage. All magnetic models include powerful rare-earth magnets which provide maximum holding strength when installing metal door frames, leveling steel studs, or ferrous pipe and in other common metal-working applications.

The new e95 UltraView™ LED Series of Box Levels are a testament to Empire’s focus on developing new technology for layout and measurement applications that provides trusted accuracy from project planning through project finish. All True Blue® products are backed by a limited lifetime warranty and confirm Empire’s commitment to best-in-class durability and innovation.
