Leica Geosystems Introduces New-generation Universal Machine Control System

Leica Geosystems has announced the introduction of the MC1200 Universal Machine Control System, which combines state-of-the-art man-machine interface with CAN-bus architecture and industry-leading sensors for 1D and 2D control over all types of construction equipment.  The system is also readily upgradeable to 3D control with plug-in options for GPS or robotic total station inputs.

The MC1200’s large LCD display and high-visibility indicator lights provide all critical information to the operator at a glance.  Dedicated function keys give direct access to the most often used functions, while an interactive menu structure and soft keys provide unlimited flexibility.  The compact size of the display/control panel makes it easy to install in tight-fitting cabs without interfering with the operator’s visibility. 

The CAN-bus architecture and a complete array of machine slope and grade sensors adapt the MC1200 to all types of equipment and applications.  Operators approach all jobs the same way, regardless of machine type or brand.  Sensor options include multiple laser and sonic grade sensors to best suit each application, including single- or dual-sonic, single- or dual-laser or cross-slope-only configurations. 

The MC1200 is the only machine control system that utilizes Leica Geosystems’ patented sideshift control for the ultimate in precision and ease of operation.

Other product features include user-selectable language options, power mast option, up to three channels of hydraulic control, multiple valve options for current or voltage control, 100 percent steep slope capability, automatic hydraulic tuning and all-at-once calibration of machine sensors.
