Grade Control for Excavators

New! Augmented reality for excavators.

Operators can now view 3D models in a real-world environment at a true-life scale, in the context of existing surroundings. On the Trimble Earthworks display, the model is overlaid onto existing ground giving the operator a better understanding of the work that needs to be done. Visibility of the bucket gives operators better situational awareness to be able to keep surrounding people and objects safer. Users can easily understand 3D models, cut/fill information, slope data and other bench points and reference points in context, without the need to interpret complex 2D plans or stakes.

Configuration Options for Excavators

Product Applications Configurations Description
3D
  • Highway Construction
  • Mass Excavation
  • Land reclamation
  • Dam and reservoir construction
  • New infrastructure projects
  • Landfills and waste deposits
Single GNSS Measures the position of the bucket and compares that to design data for rough grading and mass excavation on complex design surfaces
 

 

Dual GNSS Measures the exact position and heading of the bucket for rough grading and mass excavation on steep slopes and complex design surfaces
 

 

Universal Total Station (UTS) Total station based system for extreme accuracy for lift and layer control, material monitoring, or where GNSS is not the ideal solution because of overhead obstructions
2D
  • Residential and commercial sites
  • Road construction
  • Trenches
  • Ditches
  • Finished slope work
  • Dredging and waterways
  • Digging footers and basements
Depth, Slope and Elevation Control Highly flexible system for excavation, trenching, grading and profile work
    Depth and Slope with Bench Reference Simply enter the desired depth and slope, or bench using your bucket. The system will provide guidance to a depth or slope based on distance from a known point or "bench" on the ground.
 

 

Laser Reference A rotating grade laser provides a reference plane across the job site.
 

 

Laser Reference with Heading The excavator can be rotated without the need to re-enter the desired depth and slope to maintain consistent accuracy.
    Depth and Slope with GNSS Keep the easy to use Depth and Slope or Bench and Go workflows, and leverage GNSS to move around the site without having to use touch points or laser reference to carry your elevation. In addition you can also rotate and maintain constain slopes as the GNSS also provides heading.
