Topcon releases GX-75 touchscreen control box
Geospatial technology and machine control specialist Topcon has released the GX-75 touchscreen control boxes for construction machine automation.
The GX-75 boasts a 10-inch (25.4cm) touchscreen, the biggest the company has produced to date, and is designed for maximum readability and ease-of-use.
The GX-75 is currently available for use with excavator, dozer and motor grader machine control systems. It comes with a standard lock connector used with previous Topcon control box models which allows for backwards compatibility.
"The GX-75 is the largest touchscreen display for Topcon construction machine control ever available," Topcon director of construction product management Kris Maas says.
"Its 10-inch, bright, rugged and sunlight-readable screen allows operators in the cab to see more of the project file, at once, in practically any weather condition."
The GX-75 includes an adjustable mounting backpack that allows the screen to be mounted on the left, right or centre of the cab, depending on operator preference.
The touchscreen controller is also compatible with Topcon’s Sitelink3D remote monitoring system, which relays job progress back to the office.
"It is also a perfect system for operators using the Sitelink3D monitoring and management service to instantly communicate job site progress to the office in real time, as well as quickly receive updated plans and job files," Maas says.
Additional features on the GX-75 include integrated virus protection and additional USB ports for saving and downloading job files.
"The display also includes LED light bars that allow operators to easily see where they are in relation to grade with just a glance," Maas added.
