Topcon introduces new 10-inch touchscreen display for construction machine control
LIVERMORE, Calif., USA/ CAPELLE A/D IJSSEL, The Netherlands – March 7, 2017 – Topcon Positioning Group announces the release of the latest addition to its longstanding line of touchscreen control boxes for construction machine automation — the GX-75. With its 10-inch touch screen, the system is designed to offer a large and easy-to-use display for operators.
“The GX-75 is the largest touchscreen display for Topcon construction machine control ever available,” said Kris Maas, director of construction product management. “Its 10-inch, bright, rugged and sunlight-readable screen allows operators in the cab to see more of the project file, at once, in practically any weather condition.
“It is also a perfect system for operators using the Sitelink3D monitoring and management service to instantly communicate job site progress to the office in real time, as well as quickly receive updated plans and job files,” he said.
The GX-75 is currently available for use with dozer, motor grader and excavator machine control systems. It comes with a standard lock connector used with previous Topcon control boxes, allowing for backward compatibility.
“The display also includes LED light bars that allow operators to easily see where they are in relation to grade with just a glance,” said Maas.
The GX-75 includes an adjustable mounting backpack designed to provide versatility — whether an operator prefers to view project information on the left, right or center of the cab.
Additional features include integrated virus protection, and easily-accessible USB ports for saving and downloading job files.
