iDig 2D Machine Control
iDig is a brand new real time grade control tool for excavating machines.
iDig uses a simple combination of wireless, solar-powered sensors, an LED lightbar, an optional laser with laser receiver (or you can use one you already have) and a large colour touchscreen to take your benchmark into the cab and accurately guide you to your required depth or grade.
As you move the boom, stick and bucket the laser receiver and sensors communicate the bucket teeth’s position relative to finish grade, so the operator always knows the level he is working to.
The 2D system has a dynamic gyro sensor that unlocks the ability to work on a wide range of tasks including:
• Pipe laying
• Tank settings
• Parking lots
• Sports grounds
• Clamshell and auger
How does the Idig Work:
iDig is the brand new control "tool" providing at low price same functions as expensive sophisticated systems. Thanks to radio transmission between components, solar cells powered sensors, "fast-fit" fixing plates, installation can be made by the user itself.
02. Easy set up
iDig is provided with display icons guided procedures (patented) to get self automatic calibration performed by the user himself.
Powerful softwares enables an immediate learning and permanent storing of the machine data.
Once set, operation on the jobsite can start.
03. Multiple buckets and machines
USE ONE iDig SYSTEM FOR MULTIPLE MACHINES
Different Jobs Mean Different Machines and Different Buckets. Go From Excavator to Backhoe to Mini. Once Set, iDig Recognizes the Machine and Bucket.
• Get One For All the Machines in Your Fleet, or Buy One to Use on Your Various Rental Machines
• iDig Recognizes Multiple Buckets, Including Tilt Buckets (iDig Touch).
• Optional Accessories: Chassis Sensor for Non Center Pivot Machines, 2nd Boom Sensor, and 2D sensor
04. Ease of use
No need of stops. No need of of grade checks. No need of expensive service personel.
All necessary information is provided to the operator directly into the cab.
Move the boom, the stick and the bucket: in any position you will get an accurate reading of bucket teeth Grade.
Get the accuracy you need, in half the time.
05. Costs cut
One-man system reduces labor, saves time and money.
Typical grade checkers or machine-mounted receivers slow you down.
06. No battery costs with solar charging.
No AC charging is needed.The iDig sensors are very energy-efficient and use a new generation of solar cells.
07. No welding, no measuring tools, no cables required.
Sensors are wireless and use radio communication. No cables to get damaged, eliminate expensive service calls.
08. Sensor mounting plates hold sensors securely
Sensor mounting plates hold sensors securely. The mounting plates get glued or screwed to the machine elements. The sensors get clipped onto the plate and may be easily removed over night with a special removal key.
