GPS Guidance with Wi-Fi Base
GPS guidance provides position and heading using an MS972 GNSS Smart Antenna and SNM940 Connected Site Gateway. GPS corrections are delivered via Wi-Fi from a SPS985 base station.
GPS Guidance with Remote Corrections
GPS guidance provides position and heading using an MS972 GNSS Smart Antenna and satellite delivered GPS corrections. The SNM940 Connected Site® Gateway receives GPS corrections via cellular connection with a Virtual Reference Station (VRS) network or Trimble Internet Base Station Service (IBSS).
Laser Reference with Heading
With the Laser Reference and HS410 Heading Sensor configuration, the excavator can be rotated without the need to re-enter the desired depth and slope to maintain consistent accuracy.
A rotating grade laser such as the Spectra Precision® GL700 series from Trimble provides a reference plane across the jobsite.
Simply enter the desired depth and slope information into the in-cab control box. The system will provide guidance to a depth or slope based on distance from a known point or "bench" on the ground.
