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.
Cat Grade Control 3D is now available on the D3K2, D4K2, and D5K2 crawler dozers.
Version 12.81 of the Trimble GCS900 Grade Control System further expands the mix of machines supported to now include wheel loaders.
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.
