New Topcon solution adapts to machine control and data integration needs as fleets and workflows expand
Topcon Positioning Group has launched its MC-Max machine control solution. Based on its MC-X machine control platform, and backed by Sitelink3D — the company's real-time, cloud-based data management ecosystem — MC-Max is a scalable solution for mixed-fleet heavy equipment environments. It is designed to adapt to owners' machine control and data integration needs as their fleets and workflows expand.
MC-Max increases processing power, speed, accuracy, versatility and reliability; and can be installed on a full range of dozers and excavators, using the same basic modular components. Redesigned user and product interfaces were developed based on real-world applications and provide a simplified and immersive user experience that allows operators to learn the system easily.
"With MC-Max, we've created a solution that is flexible and can continue to grow as a contractor's needs and capabilities expand," said Jamie Williamson, executive vice president at Topcon Positioning Group. "This new solution provides improved scalability and precision in the field and offers business owners real-time data integration, connectivity and resource management capabilities across their entire workflow."
The MC-Max solution offers flexible mounting solutions, as well as optional automatic blade and bucket control for a variety of machines. The system also provides a full battery of positioning technologies ranging from slope control to laser, multi-constellation GNSS, robotic total station and Millimeter GPS systems.
MC-Max provides project managers a real-time view of machine positions, activities and onsite progress, and is compatible with a wide range of site communications systems.
