Topcon Positioning Group announced the addition of two new indicate control systems to its excavator control system lineup – the X-32 and X-33 at the World of Concrete exhibition in Las Vegas, NV.
The X-32 is a 2D excavator grade indication system to fit any budget. With this new system, you have the flexibility to use a wide array of references from which to work: Existing surface, a hub, previous cut, single slopes and dual slopes with the use of a compass or rotating laser. It’s as easy as choosing your reference and entering a cut and/or slope depth.
The X-32 grows as your needs expand because it’s easily upgradeable to a 3D system.
“The X-33 adds Topcon’s GNSS satellite technology to create a 3D indicate excavator grade control system. The system’s MC-i3 GNSS receiver with Vanguard technology provides maximum flexibility in satellite signal tracking. Additionally, the MC-i3 is Sitelink3D ‘ready’ for integration into Topcon’s real-time 3D management solution.
The new 3D system is designed to establish grade faster and ensure the operator stays on grade.
