Enhancing productivity

17 March 2008

Trimble's GCS900 grade control system includes new high accuracy configurations for dozers and graders using the new Trimble SPS730 and SPS930 universal total stations. The 10.7 version of the system is supported by the satellite-based augmentation system (SBAS).

A spokesman for Trimble said, “On-machine software now logs a new productivity data fi le to assist the contractor for better project tracking and management. The system also extends the flexibility of the in-cab Trimble CB430 control box to include the conventional configurations of the Trimble GCS300 through GCS600 grade control systems.”

The system provides a high level of accuracy on the 3D and conventional elevation and slope grade control, the spokesman added.

The Trimble GCS900 Grade Control System, using the new Trimble Universal Total Stations and MT900 Machine Target, is capable of providing advanced high speed, steep angle tracking for millimetre accuracy grade control, he said.
