Leica Geosystems increases productivity with intelligent MSS400 Series Sensors

New sensors bring unmatched speed, precision to any jobsite

(Heerbrugg, Switzerland, 8 March 2017) – Leica Geosystems, industry leader of reality capture and measurement technology, today announced the launch of the Leica MSS400 Series Sensors. Ensuring speed, performance, precision and productivity (SP), the MSS400 Series Sensors incorporate SP Technology that allows faster digging without loss of precision at higher speeds for even more productivity from your excavator machine control solution.  

“The new MSS400 Series Sensors are so responsive that I receive almost instantaneous updates on the panel. This means that I can use my excavator to fine grade much faster. The sensors are very fast even when I dig 4 to 5 meters down,” says Michael Madsen, excavator operator from Entreprenørfirmaet Ollerup in Denmark.

Boosting productivity through efficiency
The MSS400 Series Sensors allow the operator to work faster while maintaining advanced accuracy at higher speeds on challenging job sites where greater productivity is essential. This reduces time and fuel consumption, which in turn increases the contractor’s overall bottom line contribution. By offering an accurate reading over a 360 degree range of motion, the new sensors allow operators to use the iCON excavate solution without experiencing dead spots.        

High precision attainable at any speed
Inertial measurement technology incorporated in the sensors and combined with gyroscopes and accelerometers offers the most responsive sensor technology on the market to improve digging accuracy and increase the operator’s overall speed in completing the work. The operator is now able to continue working even with temporary loss of base station signals. The innovative solution significantly enhances performance, reduces the costly rework and increases uptime during poor GNSS coverage or temporary loss of correction signals. 

“Heavy construction equipment requires sensors that can perform with precision in any environment, and the right technology can make a massive difference to an excavator’s performance,” said Marcus Grevelshoej, Product Specialist Excavating and Wheel Loader Solutions at Leica Geosystems. “Designed with excavator’s applications in mind, the MSS400 Series Sensors are the toughest, most reliable and precise sensors on the market, and allow contractors to complete their projects ahead of schedule and under budget.”
