2D Grade Control for Motor Graders
As an excellent first investment for contractors new to construction technology, the Trimble® 2D GCS900 can measure the lift and tilt of the blade with a single laser and laser receiver for grading. The slope of the blade can be measured when an additional laser receiver or slope sensor is added to the system. The 2D GCS900 will help you get to grade more accurately and quickly by proving in-cab elevation and slope guidance. And the 2D GCS900 can easily be upgraded to a 3D grade control system as your business needs change and grow.
When is comes to finish grading, the 2D GCS900 can help you achieve tight tolerances and a smooth finished grade with precise vertical guidance. You can also calculate the cross-slope of the blade by using two angle sensors and rotation sensor. Measure elevation when you add a laser receiver or sonic tracer to the 2D GCS900 system. A sonic tracer can also aid in tracing stringlines, previous passes, curbs and gutters.
Used with a sonic sensor or grade laser, the 2D GCS900 grade control system for motor graders can help improve efficiency and productivity on such projects as roads and highways, land reclamation, dam and reservoir construction, and new infrastructure.
Set up as a cross-slope control system, the 2D GCS900 can be used on motor graders for fine grading work for road maintenance, ditches and slope work. The 2D GCS900 can also be used as a single control system, using a laser or sonic receiver to control the lift of the motor grader blade for flat, slopework and finished grading. Use two laser or sonic receivers to make the 2D GCS900 a dual control system to achieve higher accuracy lift control. The blade edge can be controlled independently or linked in this configuration.
