Topcon Positioning Group has released its latest indicate dozer machine control system — the i-53.
The new system comes with the latest Topcon GNSS receiver, graphical user interface and machine control software designed to deliver a versatile indicate dozer system at an economical price.
The system expands the Topcon dozer indicate product line by offering single GNSS plus slope sensor designed for complete control of elevation and slope.
“The i-53 features the Topcon GX-55 control box with audible grade reference alarms and visual LED lights, as well as the new MC-i4 GNSS receiver,” says Kris Maas, director of construction product management. “With safety and work efficiency in mind, the bright screen and grade guidance features deliver the highest quality graphical experience for modern machine control.
“The communication of the machine is handled by the innovative MC-i4 GNSS receiver that allows various radio configurations in one receiver for the Sitelink3D site management solution and/or network corrections,” Maas says.
Additional features include integrated virus protection and easy-access USB ports for saving and downloading job files.
