GOMACO G+ Connect is a CAN-based network using proprietary software to connect all control systems on a GOMACO paver. This includes all electronics and hydraulics, as well as machine control technology.

A ground-level control panel, dubbed Ground Control, houses the paver’s GSI control, machine control, and a remote operator’s screen for G+. From this box, or by using a tethered hand-held control from any other location, a worker on the ground can fine-tune the machine, make settings adjustments, and monitor the operation.

G+ has an entire library of sensor capabilities for controlling slope, grade and steer, says the company. Users can use G+ to pave with 3D stringless, laser control, sonic sensors, rotary sensors, and slope sensors.
