Compaction control systems have been prevalent in Europe for many years. The technology is gaining momentum in North America and Asia-Pacific regions due to contactor requirements for better in-field validation of compaction results, improvements in GPS-based machine control technology, and increased documentation requirements for government projects and warranty work.
- Fully portable, rugged on-machine components, interoperable between other Trimble compaction or grade control systems
- Records and displays color coded number of passes
- Compaction to operator defined layered lifts
- Cut/Fill mapping and thickness monitoring for real-time QA/QC capabilities in the cab of the machine
- As-built mapping and recording of final compacted surface for analysis of compaction progress and volume calculations in the office
- Configurable GPS modes depending upon application and available jobsite site infrastructure:
- RTK – centimeter-level positioning
- SBAS (WAAS/EGNOS/MSAS) – sub-meter level positioning
- Records and displays compaction meter values (CMV)
- Records and displays resonance meter value (RMV) or drum decoupling or double jump
- Display of vibratory frequency, amplitude, and compactor speed
- Proofing mode for final compaction runs and compaction statistical reports listed level of design compaction over or under-achieved and target met
- On-board recording of compaction data for analysis and archival back in the office.
- Two-way wireless data transfer of compaction and machine productivity data to and from the office to machine
