Carlson Machine Control Introduces All-In-One 3D Machine Control Sensor

The MC Pro Vx5 Is Small, Powerful & Simplifies Operation

Maysville, Kentucky, U.S.A.– One sensor is all you’ll need with the new Carlson MC Pro Vx5 3D machine control sensor. It offers six components integrated into one compact, rugged and easy-to-use unit that provides efficient machine control operations.

Available exclusively from Carlson Machine Control and its authorized MC dealers, the MC Pro Vx5 is just 26.32 inches (66.85cm) long, 8.23 inches (20.90cm) wide and 4.8 inches (12.19cm) high and weighs just 5.1 pounds (2.3kg), making the sensor completely portable and easy to install. The rugged IP69K unit provides GPS plus GLONASS L1/L2 high precision positioning and heading – up to 20Hz, along with dual axis slope.

 “This unit was developed to provide total simplicity of operation, yet to have the most advanced features,” says Randy Noland, V.P. of Carlson Machine Control. “It easily mounts to a dozer, compactor, excavator, drill, scraper shovel and more. The MC Pro Vx5 connects with just one cable! Smaller and simpler yet more powerful with less cables and points of failure that increases reliability and ease-of-use.”

 In addition to the GPS and GLONASS capabilities, the Carlson MC Pro Vx5 also has a RTK UHF radio built-in, meeting all new FCC regulations with additional World Radio options available.

 “The advanced integration of the MC Pro Vx5 ensures ease of installation making it ideal to move from machine to machine or for daily removal,” adds Noland. “Advanced integration into a single sensor simplifies configuration and troubleshooting. Remote access simplifies all around system performance.”

 The Carlson MC Pro Vx5 is built to be so rugged that it comes with a three-year warranty, an industry exclusive. There is also an option to purchase an “Advanced Component Replacement Option” to guarantee continued operation.

 “Our mining, landfill and dredging clients demand reliability,” says Dave Jordan, Carlson Machine Control National Sales Manager. “The advanced, integrated design plus the three-year warranty and Advanced Component Replacement Option will provide a new level of support and system up-time.”

Look for the Carlson MC Pro Vx5 to be introduced at the Carlson Software and RDO Integrated Controls booths, numbers 1155 and 12500 respectively, at MINExpo International in Las Vegas, Sept. 24-26.
