As an ideal solution for temporary installations and rented machines, the Trimble® CCSFlex™ Compaction Control System for soil compactors is a system “in a case” that provides pass count mapping and can be operated without a GPS base station or 3D design data.
The CCSFlex can be installed on any smooth drum or pad foot roller and can help improve soil compaction operations in several applications. While the CCSFlex is ideal for road, rail and site construction applications, it can also help with improve operations when used with residential pads, parking lots and sports fields.
Installed as an aftermarket system, the CCSFlex can be retrofitted onto any soil compactor, with or without a cab. The entry-level, cost-conscious configuration of the CCSFlex can also have sensors added later to increase the system’s capabilities as your application needs change.
The entry-level configuration of the CCSFlex is for pass counts only. The CCSFlex can provide sub-meter level horizontal mapping without a base station in this configuration. This configuration will help you run more efficiently at compaction jobs that require pass count mapping monitoring when pass count targets need to be met.
The compaction mapping configuration of the CCSFlex requires the entry-level system and a CM310 compaction sensor. The sensor measures and records the vibratory effort of the soil compactor drum. This configuration of the CCSFlex provides vibratory parameters and generates soil compaction measurements, including frequency and amplitude, Compaction Meter Value (CMV), resonance Meter Valve (RMV) or drum bounce. The CCFlex will display compaction information in real-time to our operator on the rugged graphical control box mounted in the cab to provide an immediate indication on whether your target design density has been achieved.
The CCSFlex also provides you configuration options for higher accuracy mapping so that you can match the accuracy level need to your budget. When horizontal accuracy needs to be within 1-2 centimeters, use location RTK with precise horizontal. When vertical GPS-RTK accuracy is required use full RTK. GLONASS satellite tracking is good for locations with limited GNSS satellite reception.
When you add a mobile printer to your CCSFlex, you can print in-field reports of pass counts, CMV and RMV values along with location data.
