Topcon Joystick Interface for CaterpillarTopcon says its optional joystick interface box eases use of its 3D-GPS+ grade control system on Caterpillar D8T, D9T and D6 series crawler dozers. The box eliminates the need to add hydraulic valves, Topcon says, and it installs between the dozer’s electronic joystick, its controller, and the GPS control display. Signals from the 3D control system are interpreted as if the operator were using the joystick to run the machine, the company says.
