Topcon Positioning Group debuted its MC-Max machine control solution.

According to Topcon, MC-Max is a scalable solution for mixed-fleet heavy equipment environments. It is based on Topcon’s MC-X machine control platform and backed by Sitelink3D, the company’s real-time, cloud-based data management ecosystem.

MC-Max is designed to adapt to an owner’s machine control and data integration needs as fleets and workflows expand. Additionally, Topcon says MC-Max increases processing power, speed, accuracy, versatility and reliability, and it can be installed on a range of dozers and excavators using the same basic modular components.

“With MC-Max, we’ve created a solution that is flexible and can continue to grow as a contractor’s needs and capabilities expand,” says Jamie Williamson, executive vice president at Topcon Positioning Group. “This new solution provides improved scalability and precision in the field and offers business owners real-time data integration, connectivity and resource management capabilities across their entire workflow.”

Topcon says the MC-Max solution offers flexible mounting solutions, as well as optional automatic blade and bucket control for a variety of machines. The system provides a full battery of positioning technologies ranging from slope control to laser, multi-constellation GNSS, robotic total station and Millimeter GPS systems.

MC-Max provides project managers a real-time view of machine positions, activities and onsite progress, Topcon adds. It is compatible with a range of site communications systems.

The MC-X platform, meanwhile, is designed to make machine control easy to use and affordable for all contractors, according to Topcon.

The platform ties together mixed fleets by interacting with multiple versions of 3D-MC, providing connectivity to Sitelink3D and taking advantage of the multi-constellation capabilities of GNSS antennas.
