Trimble PCS900 Paving Control System

February 18, 2013

PCS900 Paving Control System for slipform pavers is a 3D control system that uses Trimble total stations, on-machine positioning sensors, and office software to allow contractors to pave an accurate concrete road or surface while eliminating stringline and minimizing material waste.

The paver operator loads a 3D road or surface design onto the machine display and the PCS900 uses automatic steering and grade control to keep the slipform paver on design. During the paving process, haul trucks can drive material directly to the paver without negotiating stringlines. This can lead to increased safety, early project completion, shorter traffic closures and on-time bonuses, Trimble says.
