Cat MT900C Machine Target for Use with AccuGrade ATS for Motor Graders, Track-Type Tractors
August 29, 2008

The offering of the MT900C Active Machine Target or Advanced Tracking Sensor (ATS) for AccuGrade ATS systems broadens Caterpillar’s reach into the machine control and guidance industry through the addition of support for AccuGrade ATS on both motor graders and track-type tractors. The motor grader or dozer operator can conduct real-time fine grading operations with increased accuracy without fear of losing instrument lock. The target uses a 360° ring of infrared LEDs to allow reliable tracking from any horizontal direction. The infrared LED’s emit one of 16 programmable IDs that allow the instrument to lock-on and track the correct target every time.
