EXCAVATORS HYPACK 2013
Excavators Excavators require: Position of cab/excavator RTK GPS Pitch & Roll recommended Heading of cab/excavator Directional GPS Inclinometer system 3 Inclinometers Optional: Barge position and heading. You should hire somebody who knows what they are doing to install the system. Excavator Set-Up
Excavators There are several ways to interface the inclinometers: HYPACK EXCAVATOR INTERFACE BOX ( new style ) SERIAL / USB interface box ( older style ) Ocala Serial interface Custom Parser ( user defined string )
Excavators Inclinometers are connected to a controller. Controller has a network connection. Can be configured through a browser (IE). HYPACK EXCAVATOR INTERFACE
Excavators Inclinometers are connected to an interface box. Controller has a USB or SERIAL connection. All of the configuration is done in HYPACK HARDWARE. SERIAL/USB INTERFACE
Excavator Drivers Excavator Interface – low level driver receives data from inclinometers Passes dimensions on to the display driver. This is where the user selects the type of sensor installation that is on the machine.
Excavator Driver Excavator.DLL – Merges all previous excavator driver capabilities into a single device driver. Also available in the display: Cut/Fill Bar and the Reach Bar Current Final Elevation and Channel Depth are easily displayed
Excavator.DLL: General Settings Contains: Excavator Dimensions System override values Sensor adjustments. Grapple and Filter settings.
Excavator.DLL: Tab2: Bucket
Excavator Tab 2: Dogbone
Excavator.DLL: Profile/Shapes Tab
Excavator in Action This is the display produced by excavator driver.
