Trimble Spectra Precision DDS300-1 Depth Display System
Spectra Precision DDS300 Depth Display System
Wireless, Laser-Referenced Systems For High Productivity Excavating and Grading
The Spectra Precision® Laser DDS300 Display System from Trimble introduces a new level of productivity for compact equipment including backhoes, mini-excavators and smaller excavators.
The DDS300 is ideal for a range of excavation work on the building construction jobsite, including the excavation of basements and footers as well as trenching for sewage and utility installation.
The system utilizes wireless, laser and angle sensor technology along with a bright 4 color in cab display to provide dynamic real-time positioning information for the bucket at all times.
This dynamic real-time information allows the operator to excavate, trench, grade or cut profiles more quickly and accurately than traditional laser-referenced machine guidance systems.
The wireless connectivity between sensors on the boom stick and bucket and the in-cab control box eliminate cables, and makes the system extremely easy-to-install—significantly reducing installation time to about an hour.
- Mini Excavators
- Small/Medium Excavators
- Wheeled or Tracked
The Spectra Precision Laser DDS300 Display System is ideal for contractors and owner operators with multiple machines needing flexibility in their excavating solution. The DDS300 depth display system uses a combination of angle sensors and a laser receiver to provide depth and slope information to meet your needs for simple depth information to complex profile work. Optional sensors are available for excavators using VA booms and tilt buckets. For more flexibility, the laser receiver can be removed and used on another machine for depth display. The system’s wireless communications means that you can move the system from machine to machine easily and quickly without dealing with cables.
The components of the DDS300 System are simple in design, but create powerful advantages and features for users. The angle sensors report exact angle position of the boom, stick and bucket via wireless radio signals to the powerful control box. The control box computes the bucket position and displays the information on the 7” color touch screen display. Using the laser receiver as reference allows the user to continue digging without multiple benchmarks.
Helping you get to grade faster is the heart of the DDS300 system, but the system can increase your profitability and productivity in more ways than just moving dirt:
- Fast installation and set up
- Laser receiver option eliminates multiple benchmarks
- No grade checker needed, since the display shows you exact bucket location
- Longer continual excavating, since you can work in low light situations
- Lower fuel costs and less wear of equipment by getting each job done faster
- More accurate readings in any position of the arms results in less rework due to “overcuts” and “undercuts”
- Reduced material cost and transport costs
- Reduced risk of damaging electrical, gas and sewage lines
- Multiple applications increases machine and operator flexibility
- A safer working environment; keeps the grade checker away from trench and machine swing area
