1 Machine Setup

2 This Webinar is LISTEN only Questions will be answered in writing at the end of the Webinar. QUESTIONS? Webinar Information

3 Objectives of this lesson: Review all the screens and steps required to properly configure your Grader or Dozer. Machine Setup (Machine Builder)

4 Machine Setup

5 Machine Files

6 Configuration Name/Type

7 Machine Type

8 Sensor Type

9 Mounting Location Grader

10 Mounting Location Dozer

11 Units of Measure

12 Motorgrader w/GPS

13 Motorgrader Antenna Selection Topcon Twin (MC-A2) will require additional calibration not covered in this Webinar

14 Motorgrader Antenna Selection CR-3 Rev 1 MC-A2 & MC-A1

15 Measurements When making all the measurements for a Grader or Dozer use + numbers unless the measurement is opposite of what's being asked.

16 Motorgrader Above Above Measurement Slant height Front Antenna Rim

17 Motorgrader Above Above Measurement Slant height Front Antenna Rim

18 Motorgrader Inside Inside Measurement Vertical Pole (side to side) Offset from center of Pole

19 Motorgrader Inside Inside Measurement Vertical Pole (side to side) Offset from center of Pole

20 Motorgrader Behind Behind Measurement Vertical Pole (front to back) Offset from center of Pole

21 Motorgrader Behind Behind Measurement Vertical Pole (front to back) Offset from center of Pole Error!

22 Motorgrader Behind Behind Measurement Vertical Pole Offset from center of Pole

23 Motorgrader Width Width Measurement Blade length (width)

24 Motorgrader Width Width Measurement End to End

25 Next

26 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

27 GPS Comms Configuration GPS Cooms Configuration Setup screen for GPS receiver

28 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

29 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

30 GPS Radio Configuration Used to configure radio type also accessed in the Tools menu

31 LD-40 Setup

32 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

33 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)

34 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

35 LD-40 Setup Inverted The Inverted option selects the correct orientation of the LD-40

36 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)

37 LD-40 Setup Colors Changes the Cut/Fill colors. Yellow over Red Red over Blue

38 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.

39 Dozer Configuration

40 Dozer Sensor Selection Select the appropriate sensor

41 Dozer System 5 System 5 sensor MC Builder

42 Dozer System 5 Ensure the Antenna is perpendicular to the tracks on level ground when making machine measurements.

43 Dozer Above Above Measurement

44 Dozer System 5 Above Measurement Slant height Front Antenna Rim

45 Dozer Inside

46 Ensure the antenna is vertical

47 Dozer Inside Ensure the antenna is vertical Drop plum bob from center of the vibration pole Measure from the Right side of the blade

48 Dozer Behind

49 Dozer Behind Measurement Drop plum bob from center of the vibration pole Measure distance behind

50 Dozer Width

51 Dozer Width Measurement Measure blade width

52 Remaining Screens The remaining screens are the same as previously explained.

53 Slope Sensor 3DMC2 When configuring a 3DMC2 Dozer one additional measurement screen is available.

54 Slope Sensor 3DMC2 When configuring a 3DMC2 Dozer one additional measurement screen is available. For details on configuring a 3DMC2 Dozer refer to the 3D-MC2 Setup & Calibration Webinar posted on the TU Website.
