Trimble PCS900 Paving Control System
PCS900 Paving Control System is the 3D extension of a Trimble
PCS400 Paving Control System. The contractor can easily switch from
grade and slope (2D) mode to 3D mode on each side of the screed.
The PCS400/PCS900 combination provides the customer the choice
between sonic sensors, slope sensor, contact sensors, 3D slope and
3D elevation control.
PCS900 allows contractors to pave in a stakeless environment.
This saves time and effort of setting and adjusting stringlines and
increases truck productivity by eliminating the need to drive
around stringlines. The user loads design data into the Trimble
CB430 Control Box and the machine automatically keeps the screed on
On new roads, base material must be laid accurately to increase
the material yield and profitability of the ensuing asphalt or
concrete laying operation. By paving the base to design correctly
the first time, contractors can save on the cost of rework and
On resurfacing jobs, road-waves can be reduced or eliminated by
paving in 3D to a smooth design, allowing the contractor to gain
their rideability bonus. Some jobs may call for a combination of a
Trimble 3D milling and 3D paving solutions to build to
specification and maximize profits.
