SITECH to showcase latest Trimble machine control solutions at Hillhead 2024

SITECH UK & Ireland Trimble technology

SITECH UK & Ireland will unveil Trimble’s latest advancements in machine control and guidance technology at Hillhead 2024.

New offerings will include the 10-inch Trimble TD540 Display – offering increased memory and processing power over the TD520 – as well as an intuitive user experience with the Trimble Earthworks Grade Control Platform.

Accompanying the TD540 is the new MS976 GNSS Smart Antenna, described as a fully integrated GNSS positioning receiver plus antenna intended for rugged chassis or on-machine cab mounting implementing the latest Trimble Maxwell 7 Custom GPS chip and ProPoint Real-Time Kinematic (RTK) engine.

Also on display will be the new entry-level Trimble BX992 Receiver, which incorporates the ProPoint RTK engine, and broadens the market with an additional dual GNSS receiver option combining with two Trimble Zephyr 3 Rugged antennas with all constellations included.

Brian Core, UK regional sales manager at SITECH, said, “In the past, if you lost clear sight of the sky due to trees or surrounding buildings, you’d have to stop and switch to a different method of working, which could potentially lead you to reverting to the old way of working with profile boards and batter rails which consumes both time and costs. These latest solutions enable operators to keep working, even in tricky environments like dense forests, and hard up against buildings that were previously off limits for machine control.

“It’s all about keeping our customers working efficiently, no matter how rough the terrain or how built our surrounding environment is. With this new technology, we’re pushing the boundaries of where machine control is truly effective.

“Crucially, we have the ability to analyse data from these systems and provide valuable insights, demonstrating the added value we offer to customers. In addition, these systems will keep delivering results in conditions where you never thought it possible before, providing a major boost to productivity and performance on any job site.”

SITECH is also now an authorised dealer for Grade Control Products (GCP) and will be showcasing some of GCP’s protection products, such as the TD540 and TSC7 casings.
