Caterpillar MS992 Smart Antenna GNSS Receiver
The Trimble® MS992 GNSS Smart Antenna is “smart” because it contains an integrated GNSS receiver, antenna, an isolation system in a single, ruggedized housing that can withstand even the toughest construction site environments. It is also the only commercially available GNSS antenna that offers the performance enhancements of a new Trimble RTK engine and supports the newest GNSS signals. All that means increased machine productivity and utilization in areas that were previously difficult to use GPS machine control – including under tree canopy and in urban canyons.
Designed for rugged operation on Trimble GCS900 Grade Control Systems and CCS900 Compaction Control Systems, the MS992 is available in single or dual configurations on the following machine types:
- Pull-type Scrapers
- Soil Compactors
- Asphalt Compactors
Why MS992 Dual GNSS Antennas?
The patented dual MS992 antenna configuration is a unique advantage of the Trimble GCS900 Grade Control System. Using two GNSS antennas, the exact position of the bucket, blade or drum is calculated along with very accurate cross slope and heading. Dual GNSS configuration is especially advantageous for operations with dozers with angle blades, graders, and on complex design surfaces such as super elevations.
