LIVERMORE, CA – The new 3D steep slope add-on kits for motorgraders from Topcon Positioning Systems (TPS) gives contractors a wide-range sensor that allows 3D use of these machines even in steep applications.

The slope sensor allows for precise measurement of up to one hundred percent cross slope whenever needed by a Topcon System Five 2D or 3D application.

“We’ve found that this type of technology is needed as more and more contractors are using 3D-GPS+ motograders in applications with steeper slopes,” said Jason Killpack, Topcon senior product marketing manager. “Topcon created the new kits, which have a wider range slope sensor than the standard add-on kits, to provide superior accuracy and response on more job sites and applications.”

The new kit is compatible with all System Four, System Five and 9168 control boxes and features a temperature-compensated sensing element to enhance its use in any weather condition.

About Topcon Positioning Systems: Topcon Positioning Systems, a developer and manufacturer of positioning equipment, offers the world’s leading selection of innovating precision GPS, GIS, laser, agriculture, optical surveying, and machine control products, software, and applications. Topcon Corporation is traded on the Tokyo Stock Exchange (7732).
