Excavator Control

Bucket placement with accurate heading and precise positioning

NavCom’s Machine Control solutions help connect you more closely with your worksite. Mass excavation projects require accurate 3D positioning of the bucket along with cross slope and heading. NavCom’s heading and precise positioning receivers combined with our powerful suite of RTK tools can help you quickly and accurately determine blade position and help you build your excavator control solutions.

The SF-3050HB & SF-3050HR for Excavator Control Applications

NavCom's Heading Base (HB) and Heading Rover (HR) systems combine the SF-3050 StarFire GNSS receiver, the ANT-3001R GNSS/L-Band Antenna and a Mini Null Modem adaptor to create a complete heading base and rover solution. The SF-3050 is Heading Enabled allowing heading accuracy to 0.1° RMS with a 3 meter antenna separation.

RTK Add-ins Improve Performance

In addition to traditional RTK accuracy, NavCom’s powerful combination of RTK add-ins help reduce outages while providing extended coverage, saving our users valuable time and effort. Ultra RTK provides RTK-level accuracy up to 40km away from a base station and RTK Extend leverages the StarFire Network for continuous RTK positioning when the RTK radio communication signal is blocked or out of range.
