Next generation SP technology not only enhances flexibility and productivity, but also now supports machine control with total stations and increases grading speed on jobs where GPS is not usable.
Next generation SP technology not only enhances flexibility and productivity, but also now supports machine control with total stations and increases grading speed in environments where GPS is not usable. When working in remote areas, an operator can swap the GPS sensors with a total station and can keep working with his 3D machine control system while experiencing the same SP performance and speeds as with GPS. The technology provides improved hydraulic control that allows faster grading with smoothness and precision at higher speeds.
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 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 Leica iCON gps 80, says the company, is an “all-in-one” receiver solution for machine control.
Leica Geosystems Mining has announced an exclusive industry partnership with Locata Corporation Pty Ltd to provide the mining industry with a high-precision radio positioning system that is not reliant on GPS.
