Norcross, Ga. -
Leica Geosystems announced
today the release of the CI-14 CAT Interface Module, designed to greatly
simplify and reduce cost of installation of its Leica Geosystems 2D & 3D
machine control systems on modern Caterpillar earthmoving equipment.
CI-14 eliminates the
cost and effort of installing add-on hydraulic valves in order to control
various Caterpillar K and T Series dozers and M Series motorgraders. In
addition, the CI-14 can be used in conjunction with 2D machine control
applications (laser, slope, or ultrasonic) and
3D machine control applications (GPS/GNSS as well as the Leica
PowerTracker total station sensors). PowerGrade with the CI-14 interface saves
money from the start with “plug and grade” operation.
Key benefits of CI-14
The CI-14 module
provides simple and rapid plug-in installation for the latest CAT machines. It
is compatible with both ARO-prepared and non-ARO bulldozers, as well as
motorgraders. There is no CAT SEA license
activation fee to pay. The CI-14 module is suitable for 2D and 3D automatic
control with failsafe operation and full operator override at any time. Robust,
field-proven hardware and field-programmable software allow for future
enhancements. The CAN-Bus design ensures reliable operation and simple diagnostics.
“Leica Geosystems is committed to delivering further
OEM interface options by working in close cooperation with leading OEMs to
achieve our vision of being the leading provider of innovative machine control
solutions” according to Rich Calvird, Product Marketing Manager.
