Topcon introduces X- 22 wireless excavator control system
System offers maximum performance, flexibility at affordable price
Topcon Positioning Systems (TPS) introduces a new wireless tilt sensor system for excavators – the X-22.
“The X-22 is the latest addition to Topcon’s excavator machine control series, and is aimed at satisfying the increased demands for job site durability, accuracy, flexibility and cost-effectiveness,” said Murray Lodge, vice president of the TPS Construction Business Unit. “The easy-to-use system offers contractors maximum performance and flexibility at an affordable price.”
Lodge said that the simplicity of the system “creates an extremely small learning curve for operators. It’s a simple system that is easy to learn and easier to operate. With this system, any operator can dig quicker, safer and more accurately than ever before.”
The X-22 incorporates plug-and-play technology designed to make installation and swapping between machines “extremely easy and fast. It is ideal for swapping between a company’s machinery or rental machines and creates the flexibility to handle a wide range of tasks on any job site,” Lodge said, “including site preparation, trenching, road building, shaping embankments, and digging basements.”
X-22 features include:
-- High-resolution touch screen display that is easy to see even in bright sunlight.
-- Simple screen menu makes it easy to set width, depth and slope of the cut.
-- Various screen views – profile, bucket and sectional – are standard.
-- Rechargeable wireless sensors (a full charge provides more than 120 hours of continuous usage).
“The X-22 is versatile and will increase productivity on all your jobs, big or small. It is designed to dramatically decrease over-excavating,” Lodge said. “With this excavator system, an operator can get the job done faster, eliminate the potential for re-work and reduce costs, thus increasing profits.”
