Trimble CM310 Compaction Sensor
March 13, 2008

trimble-compactionUntitled-1The Trimble CM310 Compaction Sensor enables the display of real-time material density to the earthworks compactor operator. This new capability is designed to increase machine productivity while providing complete, consistent material compaction over the entire construction project. Material surfaces are expected to be compacted faster with better in-place densities improving the efficiency of other earthworks operations, such as optimization of haul truck times and improved water drainage and management. The Trimble CCS900 Compaction Control System with the new sensor is designed to provide the contractor with better control over the compaction process, making operations more efficient and productive. The contractor can compact sub-surface material to a target density and number of machine passes, analyze sub-surface grade post-compaction for deficiencies in the surface (whether certain locations are high, low or on grade), and catch grade control mistakes in real-time, prior to the start of the final road building process.
