Leica sensor


Leica Geosystems has developed a new in-cab system for excavators that it says enables the operator to dig more quickly and to the correct grade.The MC200 Digger comprises an LCD display, which works with angle sensors to give a read-out of the bucket position in real time. In addition, a laser transmitter on the boom can provide a reference point, regardless of excavator height. Leica claims these functions can improve productivity by 50 per cent.
