The system is based on the firm’s MC-X machine control platform, and backed by Sitelink3D, the cloud-based data management ecosystem. MC-Max is designed to adapt to the needs of the customer for machine control and data integration as fleets and workflows expand.
MC-Max is said to boost processing power, speed, accuracy, versatility and reliability. It can be installed on a full range of dozers and excavators, using modular components. Modern, redesigned user and product interfaces were developed based on real-world applications and customer feedback and is said to allow operators to learn the system easily.
“With MC-Max, we’ve created a solution that is flexible and can continue to grow as a contractor’s needs and capabilities expand,” said Jamie Williamson, executive vice president, Topcon Positioning Group. “This new solution provides improved scalability and precision in the field and offers business owners real-time data integration, connectivity and resource management capabilities across their entire workflow.”
The MC-Max solution offers flexible mounting solutions, as well as optional automatic blade and bucket control for a variety of machines. The system also provides a full battery of positioning technologies ranging from slope control to laser, multi-constellation GNSS, robotic total station and Millimeter GPS systems.
MC-Max provides project managers a real-time view of machine positions, activities and onsite progress, and is compatible with a wide range of site communications systems.
The Topcon MC-X platform makes machine control easy to use and affordable for all contractors. The platform ties together mixed fleets by interacting with multiple versions of 3D-MC, providing connectivity to Sitelink3D and taking advantage of the multi-constellation capabilities of GNSS antennas.
