    1. 2D Guidance for Excavators on the 3D Display

    2. Configuring a 2D Hex Machine If this was a 2D only display you would only see “Depth and Slope”

    3. Configuring a 2D Hex Machine

    4. AccuGrade/GCS900 2D Excavator Operating Modes • AccuGrade/GCS900 2D Excavator has the same core functions as the AccuGrade/GCS600 Hex • 5 Operating Modes • Depth Mode • Depth & Slope Mode • Measure Mode • Profile Mode • Level Mode

    5. AccuGrade/GCS900 2D Excavator Operating Modes • Differences • Vertical Setup contains the main AccuGrade/GCS600 Hex Guidance modes • Level Mode is now a view • Measure mode has its own dialog and can be accessed in any mode

    6. 2D Excavator Guidance

    7. AccuGrade/GCS900 Excavator Guidance Modes • Select the Mode for the task at hand

    8. CB430/CD700 Button & Softkey Functions Escape Key Zoom Keys Accept Laser Strike Touch Point Depth Memory Focus Depth Increment & Edit Slope Memory Focus Slope Increment & Edit Bench Clear Bench OK Key Next Key (to level view) Profile View Panning Profile Creation Setup Menu Power Key

    9. Vertical Set-up : Depth Flat-bottom excavation, leveling work, basements, footers, foundations, comparing elevations

    10. Depth Guidance Definitions REACH 0.00 CUT/FILL (DEPTH TO GRADE) TARGET DEPTH BENCHMARK

    11. Depth – Split View Screen • Note: The two red target design lines will be at different heights • The Profile view Manually Zooms and the Cross Section view Auto Zooms

    12. Depth – Split View Screen Direction to Grade Bucket Reach (Centre) Bucket Slope (tilt or non tilting bucket) Depth to grade Laser Strike Indicator Units Text Items (configurable) Touch Point Depth Memory Indicator Dynamic Bucket Cross-Section View Bench Softkey Dynamic Profile View Grade indication line Laser Catcher enabled Target Depth

    13. AccuGrade/GCS600 Hex Depth Mode Screen Laser Strike indicator Laser reference indicator Depth to grade Units Bucket ID Direction to grade Actual Elevation Memory indicator Target Depth Bucket reach Dynamic bucket position Grade indication line Tilt bucket data (optional)

    14. AccuGrade/GCS900 2D ExcavatorTerminology • Benchmark: this is the defined “zero” point for depth and reach values • Target Depth: the vertical distance to the trench bottom from Bench (zero) • This value is adjusted by the operator at any time using the depth menu softkey • Values are stored in Memories D1, D2, and D3, etc.

    15. AccuGrade/GCS900 2D ExcavatorTerminology • Reach: radial distance (in/out) of the bucket tip with respect to Bench (zero) • This value is calculated and changes dynamically • AccuGrade/GCS900 displays an arrow next to the reach text item indicating which way the bucket has moved from the bench point • No sign is displayed • Cut/Fill: vertical distance from the bucket tip to the Target Depth • This value is calculated and changes dynamically • Arrow indicates direction to grade • No sign is displayed

    16. Vertical Set-up : Depth - Features • Benchmark • Set the zero point • Multiple Buckets • AccuGrade/GCS900 has no limit of the number of defined buckets • AccuGrade/GCS600 Hex has up to 9 buckets • Edit bucket names • Depth Memories • AccuGrade/GCS900 has no limit to the number of depth memories • AccuGrade/GCS600 Hex has 2 to 7 depth memories • Touch-Point • Use to maintain benchmark when machine is moved • Laser Reference • requires additional equipment • Use to maintain benchmark when machine is moved

    17. Benching 101 • Place the bucket teeth on the benchmark • Do not physically move the benchmark • Press the Bench softkey • Elevation and Reach are set to zero 3. Enter a Target Depth (if desired) or select required depth memory 4. You are ready to work….. Note: You can move the machine and re-bench off the benchmark or a previous pass

    18. Depth Memories BENCHMARK 0.00 D3 … D7 D2 D1

    19. Touch-Point Feature • Used to move machine from Location A to Location B • Use when no laser is available • Must have common hard point accessible from both locations • Only available after system is Benched 0.00 LOCATION A LOCATION B BENCHMARK COMMON HARD POINT (ROCK)

    20. Touch-Point Feature • Place bucket focus point on common hard point • Press the Touch Point Softkey on display to activate • Move machine • Place bucket focus point on common hard point again • Push the OK key to accept or press Escape to cancel

    21. Laser Feature • Use the laser to carry the benchmark information from Location A to Location B • Advantages: – Allows one benchmark to cover a large site • – More accurate as you don’t propagate errors LOCATION A LOCATION B

    22. Using the Laser 1-2-3 • Bench the system • as before • 2) Reference the laser • 3) Dig • 4) Move the machine • 5) Reference the laser • 6) Continue Digging

    23. Laser Icons “Light House” icon appears when the laser has been previously referenced but the bench has been cleared “Laser Reference” icon appears when laser info is stored after the system has been benched

    24. Referencing a Laser • “Laser” Softkey appears when a valid laser strike is detected • Icon appears for 3 seconds • Then disappears • Accept laser strike by pressing “Laser” Softkey • If not accepted, laser strike is ignored

    25. Referencing a Laser - Summary • Move laser catcher into the beam • Wait for “Laser” Softkey to appear • Push “Laser” Softkey to accept laser strike • “Laser Reference” icon appears

    26. Referencing a Laser – Maximizing Accuracy • Accuracy is best when Laser Catcher is vertical • Near vertical is fine • Also better when you move slowly through the beam • Experiment to find out how fast is OK for your job • If millimetre accuracy is not required on the job, then relax these requirements to what suits you best

    27. Advanced Feature – Depth From Laser • Used when no benchmark is available near machine • Calculates Depth values from the Laser, not from the Benchmark • Laser is defined to be 0.00 Elevation • Depth Memories calculated from Laser

    28. Depth From Laser • Special icon appears • Reach information is not displayed 0.00 D3 D2 D1

    29. Method – Depth From Laser • Ensure that the system is in an “unbenched” state • Hold Bench Softkey down for two seconds • Position the machine so that the laser catcher detects the laser transmitter’s beam • Reference the laser • As before • Depth from laser icon is now shown • You are ready to use the Depth from Laser functionality

    30. Operation Considerations: Depth Mode • Grade guidance is to bucket center by default • You can configure the bucket focus position in the configuration menu • AccuGrade/GCS600 Hex supported on bucket centre • Cab rotation is supported • Only for Depth Mode • Dual axis pitch/roll sensor will compensate for depth change as cab rotates • Laser transmitter beam must be level for Depth Mode operation

    31. Vertical Set-upDepth Slope Slope-bottom excavation; sloped trenches, embankments

    32. Depth Slope: Definition of Terms BENCHMARK 0.00 Cut/Fill (DEPTH TO GRADE) TARGET DEPTH TARGET SLOPE

    33. Depth Slope – Split View Screen

    34. Depth Slope – Split View Screen Direction to Grade Bucket Reach (Centre) Bucket Slope (tilt or non tilting bucket) Depth to grade Laser Strike Indicator (if laser detected) Units Text Items (configurable) Touch Point Depth Memory Indicator Slope Memory Indicator Dynamic Bucket Cross-Section View Bench Softkey Dynamic Profile View Target Slope Grade indication line Laser Catcher enabled Target Depth

    35. AccuGrade/GCS600 Hex Depth & Slope Mode Screen Laser Strike indicator Laser reference indicator Depth to grade Units Bucket ID Direction to grade Actual Elevation Depth Memory indicator Slope Memory indicator Target Depth Dynamic bucket position Grade indication line Tilt bucket data (optional) Target Slope

    36. Depth Slope Mode Features • Same features as Depth Mode except: • Target slope information is displayed • GSC600 Hex did not display reach • On-grade line shows slope • Slope memories displayed • Use the Depth Softkey and Slope Softkey to select required memory

    37. Using Laser in Depth & Slope Mode TARGET SLOPE

    38. Operational Considerations:Depth & Slope Mode • Cab rotation is not supported • Slopes are only correct in one cab orientation • Cab must point up-slope or down-slope only • When using a Laser • Only single slope is supported (not dual slope) • Must enter slope into laser transmitter • Must enter matching slope value into the CB430/CD700 • Take care to get the direction correct • Do not rotate cab to catch laser! • “Depth from Laser” works same as in Depth Mode

    39. Vertical Set-upProfile Mode Create a multi-segment profile in a single pass

    40. Profile Mode: Example 1 Z X Point 5 (X5,Z5) Point 1 (0,0) Point 2 (X2,Z2) Point 3 (X3,Z3) Point 4 (X4,Z4)

    41. Profile Mode: Example 2 Z X Point 1 (0,0) Point 5 (X5,Z5) Point 2 (X2,Z2) Point 4 (X4,Z4) Point 3 (X3,Z3)

    42. Profile – Split View Screen Direction to Grade Bucket Reach (Centre) Laser Strike Indicator (if laser detected) Bucket Slope (tilt or non tilting bucket) Depth to grade Units Text Items (configurable) Profile Origin Profile Memory Indicator Profile Flip Dynamic Bucket Cross-Section View Bench Softkey Elevation Reference Icon (laser referenced) Dynamic Profile View Grade indication line Laser Catcher enabled

    43. Profile Mode Screen Laser reference indicator Depth to grade Units Bucket ID Direction to grade Actual Elevation Reach Tilt bucket data (optional) Profile Number Dynamic bucket position Grade indication line

    44. Profile Mode Operation • User to create profile definition • AccuGrade/GCS600 Hex limited to 6 line segments and 7 points • Profile editor to define enter X,Z coordinates of points 2 through x • X - reach from benchmark • Z – elevation change from benchmark • Point 1 is defined to be (0,0) • Can define profile by touching points with bucket tooth • “Use Bucket” feature • Can use Laser referencing • Multiple profiles can be defined and stored • AccuGrade/GCS600 Hex limited to 9 profiles • Features not available: • Depth from Laser • Touch-Point • Depth/Slope memories

    45. Profile Definition Use arrow keys on the display to move point 2 into position If you want to edit a point use the arrow softkeys

    46. Profile Definition When finished press OK Press OK again to select and load profile Select the point you want to bench on If you wanted to Flip the Profile then you can – Otherwise you are ready to dig

    47. Profile Details – Data Card Files • Profile files are stored in the “.Profile” folder

    48. Measure Mode Measure slope between two points

    49. Measure Mode Operation • Very simple mode • Used to measure slope between two points • Only inputs available are “Origin” & “Bucket Tip: xxx” to measure between points • Rotation of cab is not supported • Points must be measured without rotating the cab • AccuGrade/GCS900 adds an extra feature here that AccuGrade/GCS600 Hex did not do • AccuGrade/GCS900 lets you measure a between two points and save the resulting slope • This slope is added as a new Slope Memory
