Norcross, GA. - Leica PowerGrade, Leica Geosystems’
next-generation grade control system, revolutionizes the construction process
with one of the industry’s first multi-machine compatible grading control
The Leica PowerGrade system incorporates the innovative PowerSnap docking
station that lets machine operators move the Leica PowerGrade automatic control
panels from one machine to another with a quick lift-and-snap motion. The
operator simply lifts the contact-free, sealed control panel off one machine and
snaps it into place on another. Machine-specific settings are permanently stored
in the docking station.
Rich Calvird, product marketing manager for Leica Geosystems, "It is
virtually plug-and-play technology on the jobsite. PowerGrade combines an
intuitive color graphic display with flexible system configurations so full
machine control is fast and easy, with quicker payback on the investment.
PowerGrade’s flexibility matches the system to the job today, tomorrow and down
the road so the savings just keep on coming."
Multiple Configurations, Increased Productivity
waterproof and designed for the harshest construction environments, the Leica
PowerGrade system provides automatic control of both slope and elevation and can
be used with a wide range of sensors. Dual-laser sensor configurations are
available for those who need to work independently of the slope direction.
Leica PowerGrade also features unique automatic side-shift control for motor
graders and mast-tilt compensation.
The Leica PowerGrade system is easily upgraded and fully scalable from basic
2D to full 3D capability. With a complete range of 2D sensors including laser,
sonic, and cross-slope, and 3D upgrade capability to TPS, GNSS, or both,
PowerGrade is the most complete grading control system in the industry.
Calvird adds, “The Leica PowerGrade system is ideal for contractors looking
to increase machine productivity in today’s fast-paced competitive market with
easy-to-use, high accuracy grade control. The installation of a Leica PowerGrade
system is typically done within one day, minimizing machine downtime and
generating payback faster.”
