GPS Precisions Position Quality RTK Max. GPS errors (roving) GPS status will flash orange if RMS values are exceeded Max. GPS errors (point measurement) Tolerance for topo survey and measure point feature
GPS Comms Configuration Connection Serial Port MC 2.5 TCP/IP 9905 & 9906 MC-R3 with 160 Boards UDP/IP 9907 & 9908 MC-R3 112 Boards (3D-MC2 all MC-R3 since mid Feb) MC 2.5 MC-R3
GPS Comms Configuration IP Address/Port/Password Settings programmed on the GNSS receiver All boxes use the same settings the default button sets defaults MC & boards 9905 & boards
GPS Radio Configuration Used to configure radio type also accessed in the Tools menu
Search finds all attached LD-40 light bars and will populate the ID box Select an LD-40 from the ID pull down With the LD-40 selected the Identify button will cause all the lights flash
LD-40 Setup Location Select how the LD-40 is to be used Left edge (position information for the left edge to the design surface) Right edge (position information for the right edge to the design surface) Cut/Fill (will be the point you select on the blade in the blade control menu) Slope (the difference from actual slope to design slope matches 9168 LEDs) Steering (LD-40 being used as a steering indicator)
LD-40 Setup Centered If checked the On-Grade will be positioned in the center of the LD-40 If unchecked the On-Grade will be positioned on the lower half of the LD-40 Typical application for Excavators or scrapers making large cuts working down to grade
LD-40 Setup Inverted The Inverted option selects the correct orientation of the LD-40
LD-40 Setup Precisions Set the sensitivity of the LD-40 LEDs. 1 Fine - 5 Coarse 1=15mm (per LED) 2=20mm (per LED) 3=30mm (per LED) 4=50mm (per LED) 5=100mm (per LED)
LD-40 Setup Colors Changes the Cut/Fill colors. Yellow over Red Red over Blue
LD-40 Setup Auto/2D The operator can select to have the LED on the Left or Right LD-40 illuminate when the machine is in auto. The Auto Left/Right selection is for 3D mode. The 2D Left/Right selection is for 2D mode. When operating a Grader both the Right and Left Auto switches need to be in auto for the LED to illuminate.
Dozer Sensor Selection Select the appropriate sensor
Dozer System 5 System 5 sensor MC Builder
Dozer System 5 Ensure the Antenna is perpendicular to the tracks on level ground when making machine measurements.
