Topcon adds new excavator control systems to line

Topcon Positioning Systems has added two models to the company’s excavating control solutions line.

The X62 is an affordable basic system that can quickly and easily be upgraded to full 3D GPS+ control. In this system, core sensor infrastructure is installed, allowing an excavator to work in a variety of everyday grading applications.

The X42 system is a high-performance, low-cost option for large or small excavators and backhoes for use in applications where basic indicate control is all that is needed. This system consists of four tilt sensors, the new GX-40 graphical display and a detachable light bar for grade indication.

An optional LS-B10W laser receiver can be added to both units to provide a constant elevation benchmark for the machine when it moves to a new position.
