Leica iCON excavate systems now support SVAB MACS control system
Customers’ options in tilt rotator attachments extended through development in Leica iCON iXE solutions
(Heerbrugg, Switzerland, 24 May 2017) – Leica Geosystems, industry leader in measurement technology, announced today its iCON excavate machine control solutions now support tilt rotator control systems manufactured by SVAB, a leading developer of ergonomic and user-friendly control systems for industrial vehicles and equipment.
The SVAB technology enables the Leica iCON excavate iXE2 and iXE3 multifunctional 2D and 3D control systems to read the rotation value through the SVAB MACS software. Designed to make excavating easier and more productive, iCON 3D can read and calculate the bucket’s rotation and accurately guide the operator to the desired grade.
The Leica Geosystems and SVAB partnership brings additional productivity enhancing solutions to the heavy construction industry,” said Marcus Grevelshoej, Product Specialist Excavating and Wheel Loader Solutions at Leica Geosystems. “SVAB and Leica Geosystems are exploring further cooperation in a number of areas to offer contractors innovative technology solutions for excavators.”
