Topcon Positioning Group has announced advances to its P-32 asphalt paving system with new components including the ST-3 sonic tracker, anti-vibration slope sensor, and a firmware update to the full-color, graphic display GC-35 control box.

The Leica iCON gps 80, says the company, is an “all-in-one” receiver solution for machine control. 

The Leica iCON grade iGD4SP dozer solution calculates the lift, angle, and tilt of a dozer’s six-way blade, allowing the operator to angle the blade, while the system’s advanced hydraulic interface automatically controls lift and tilt.

The GR-5 receiver with 226-channel Vanguard technology features Universal Tracking and full-wave Fence Antenna technology that provides multipath rejection in difficult environments, Topcon says.

Trimble Spectra Precision RD20 wireless in-cab remote display works with the company's wireless LR laser receivers to provide grade information.
