Topcon develops new dozer machine control package
Topcon Positioning says that its latest indicate dozer machine control system, the i-53, comes with the latest Topcon GNSS receiver, graphical user interface, and machine control software. The firm claims that this package offers a versatile indicate dozer system for an affordable price.
The system expands the Topcon dozer indicate product line by offering single GNSS plus single or dual axis slope sensor configurations for complete control of elevation and slope.
The i-53 features the Topcon GX-55 control box with audible grade reference alarms and visual LED lights, as well as the new MC-i4 GNSS receiver. It has a bright screen and clear grade guidance features making it easy to use.
Communications for the machine are handled by the innovative MC-i4 GNSS receiver. This allows various radio configurations in one receiver for the Sitelink3D site management solution and/or network corrections. The firm says that by using slope sensors in an indicate system the system improves blade cutting edge position and angle, boosting the grading capabilities of the dozer.
Additional features include integrated virus protection and easy-access USB ports for saving and downloading job files.
