Features and Benefits

Guided by a 2D reference or 3D design model, Trimble Paving Control Systems can help you:

  • Lay the finished surface with accuracy to 0.01 feet (3 millimeters)
  • Minimize use of expensive material
  • Pave within a tighter tolerance and get closer to the minimal asphalt thickness specification
  • Reduce labor costs by controlling the screed with one operator
  • Eliminate operator mistakes with the easy-to-use display interface
  • Lay complex designs such as transitions, super-elevated curves and frequently changing cross slopes
  • Achieve accuracy and smoothness specifications, which can mean a bigger bonus

PCS900 3D

The Trimble PCS900 3D Paving Control System allows you to accurately control the screed to pave with variable depth and slope based on a 3D design.

  • Take out high and low areas early in the process with the less expensive first layer materials
  • Increase road smoothness while using less asphalt than with traditional paving methods
  • Lay complex designs such as transitions, super-elevated curves and frequently changing cross slopes
  • Achieve accuracy and smoothness specifications, which can mean bonus income
  • Eliminate the time consuming and costly step of setting out stringline

Pave to a Design

The Trimble PCS900 system leverages the Trimble SPS930 Universal Total Station, MT900 Machine Target and on-board software to compare the actual screed position and slope with the 3D digital design. It automatically guides the screed to lay exactly the right material thickness and slope.

Integrates With

SPS730 ve SPS930 Universal Total Station

Nothing else comes close. Trimble Universal Total Stations lead the industry in accuracy, range and reliability for fine grading, paving, stockpile scanning and site measurements.

Paving Control for Milling Machines

Mill out the waves. Controlling the precise cutting depth of the mill minimizes over-cutting, creates a smoother surface and reduces the need for additional material in the re-paving process.

Compaction Control for Asphalt Compactors

Eliminate the guesswork, roll a more efficient pattern, increase productivity and save fuel. The surface will speak for itself.

Business Center – HCE

Powerful tools help you quickly and easily create accurate, integrated 3D constructible models for sites, corridors and marine applications. Make better decisions, decrease costly mistakes, and increase efficiency in the office and on the job site.

Once you start paving concrete with PCS900, you’ll wonder how you could ever use string line. Trucks can pull up and dump without driving around string. You’ll stop less often, grind fewer problems and blow away your target IRI number.
