CASE Introduces OEM Universal Machine Control Compatibility Kit
Posted on: 04 Apr 2018
CASE Construction Equipment has developed a universal machine control option for its production class M Series dozers (1150M, 1650M and 2050M) that makes each machine factory compatible with all major suppliers of machine control technology, including Topcon, Trimble, and CASE precision partner Leica Geosystems, within a single “universal machine control” option.
CASE universal machine control provides a universal harness for blade guidance systems, universal machine brackets and mounts, and universal jumpers to integrate any industry solution into each dozer. This allows CASE dozers to be deployed, straight from the dealer, into any fleet-wide precision or machine control solution an owner/operator/contractor may deploy on their worksites. It also helps improve retained and resale value, as that CASE dozer will be compatible with any solution during resale into its 2nd or 3rd operational lifespan.
It also provides customers the peace of mind and flexibility to prepare their dozer for retrofit of precision solutions after the purchase, without having to change mounting points or wiring harnesses on the dozer depending on the system provider of their choice.
CASE is dedicated to customers success by providing additional help with the adoption of precision with a limited-time offer of a free SiteControl CoPilot system, powered by Leica Geosystems, with the purchase of a universal machine control-equipped dozer with Leica ready option (when purchased through a CASE dealer). CoPilot bridges the gap between automatic and indicate-only systems, and offers a cost-effective entry into 2D and 3D machine control technology.
