New replacement monitors, GNSS receivers provide upgrades to your existing intelligent Machine Control devices
Komatsu’s intelligent Machine Control (iMC) equipment has always been on the cutting edge of technology that automates grading and excavating. To ensure that’s the case on all models of iMC equipment, Komatsu has now introduced remanufactured, upgraded machine control monitors and GNSS (global navigation satellite system) receivers.
“Komatsu always looks to upgrade its equipment and components in order to increase our customers’ efficiency and production, and we updated these devices to the latest technology as well,” said Goran Zeravica, Senior Product Manager, Reman. “There have been slight changes to the hardware, but the biggest upgrades came in software that makes them even more effective than the previous models.”
The new devices are replacements for the original monitors in iMC dozers and excavators and their GPS/GNSS receivers. All are now Komatsu Genuine Reman with proprietary technology, including the PH700 iMC excavator monitor (replacing the older X31) that shows operators where cut and fills are, as well as other job site features. Users can upgrade their GX-60 to a new GX-55 in iMC dozers. As with the PH700, the GX-55 shows cuts and fills and other job site features.
Previous MC-i3 GNSS receivers have been replaced with new MC-i4 models, which provide GPS/GNSS positioning for the machine, so it knows where it is on the job site and in relation to final plan elevations.
Available through distributors, My Komatsu
“As with cell phones, which you upgrade periodically to have the latest technology, we encourage you to do the same with your iMC devices,” said Arash Moghaddamzadeh, Product Manager, Reman Products and Forestry Aftermarket. “These new devices are available through your Komatsu distributor by contacting your product support representative, technology solutions expert, or through the parts department. Additionally, they are available as Reman by using your My Komatsu account.”
