The Leica iCON gps 80, says the company, is an “all-in-one” receiver solution for machine control. According to Leica, the new system uses xRTK technology “to provide accurate positioning in the harshest environments and reliable guidance where none was possible before.” The system integrates a built-in display and a built-in modem and radio, eliminating the need for separate controller and additional radio devices. A robust GNSS-optimized CAN bus system, says the company, provides faster communication between the control system and machine. Remote access via the web-based Leica iCON telematics software is designed to provide quick data transfer.
