The Trimble Dimensions was held in November last year in Las Vegas. Its 9th International User Conference attracted over 4800 attendees representing over 96 countries.
Trimble’s Civil Engineering and Construction Division introduced five new technology solutions at the event.
A new version of Trimble Earthworks Grade Control Platform version 1.7 features support for motor graders and automatic guidance for tilt rotator attachments. This is a GNSS-based, 3D grade control solution designed to make fine grading more accurate, faster and easier.
Trimble Earthworks GO! Grade Control Platform is a 2D grade control solution for compact machine grading attachments, and is said to be the only Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) compact machine control solution available that runs on Android or iOS smartphones.
The new SPS785 GNSS Smart Antenna is a fully capable GNSS receiver and is now offered at a lower price point for a faster return on investment. The SPS785 has full satellite coverage with the combination of GPS and all GNSS constellations.
The Trimble Loadrite Payload Management for Trimble Earthworks Grade Control Platform for Excavators integration will help increase productivity and efficiency for excavator operations.
This integration allows contractors to track bucket-by-bucket payload and monitor mass haul progress from the same Trimble Earthworks display. The system can be installed on any hydraulic excavator that has Trimble Earthworks, and offers an easy transition between grade control and payload management, maximising the contractor/s investment
