Topcon’s 2D motor grader laser systems represent a giant leap in motor grader grade control. Completely user friendly, user definable, upgradeable and flexible enough to apply to even the most difficult jobs.
System V laser control featuring the TM-1mm adjustable electronic or TrackerJack mast and smooth, consistent hydraulic response – fully upgradeable to Topcon’s 3DMC GPS+ motor grader control forms the platform for complete automatic motor grader control.
The laser control system includes slope, rotation and main fall sensors to measure the blade’s slope. The laser plane itself will present the wanted slope and elevation to the operator via indicator lights or even send corrections directly to the machine’s hydraulics.
With 2D motor grader laser control, you’ll eliminate over cutting and control material usage saving you time and money. With these systems the operator is really in control. Slope, elevation, speed and efficient.
Typical automatic motor grader control can be done in different ways, depending on the application. A dual laser transmitter set up is very common, allowing the machine to fine grade large areas with predefined slope and laser transmitters.
A standard laser transmitter rotates up to 900 times per minute and sends out a constant laser beam. Each turn setting the job reference, either a flat or tilted plane. The machine mounted laser receiver detects this beam and sets the blades reference with the same frequency. Imagine the speed this will give you to get to finished level!
Upgrade to 3D GPs+ or 3D LPS control
When you’re ready, upgrade your laser control to the most advance 3dMC motor grader system. Experience the benefits of Topcon’s satellite positioning based 3DMC GPS+ or standard robotic total station based 3DMC LPS motor grader grade control. 3DMC provides all the advantages of satellite positioning technology and standard survey possibilities with the superior performance and usability of Topcon’s standard machine control.
In addition to laser control, 3DMC features like complex designs, viewable blade position and increased safety, 3DMC enables the operator to “see” his machine’s exact position within the site.
