Replacing the LS-B2 and B4 models, the new series provides the tightest accuracy and largest working range of machine control receivers in the market today. “The LS-B100 series is ideal for dozers, box blades, excavators & backhoes,” Murray Lodge, TPS vice president of construction sales, said. "The LS-B100 series receivers’ unique features, such as on-grade matching and wireless capability, offer unmatched performance on any job site."
A key feature of the LS-B100 sensor series is “each unit is easy to move from machine to machine,” Lodge said. “If all you need is an ‘Indicate Only’ style of sensor, then the LS-B100 is the receiver of choice.
