Connecting Earthmoving and Compaction Machines to the Office
VisionLink software uses the Trimble SNM940 Connected Site Gateway to transmit information between the office and the machine. Precise location and production data from the earthworks machine or compactor are sent from the machine to VisionLink in the office. Design data and machine configuration files are sent from the office to the machine. Using VisionLink with the SNM940 for two-way data transfer eliminates the time needed to drive information between locations. Design information can be shared between Trimble’s Business Center – HCE data management and preparation software, VisionLink and the machine control system, ensuring the same data is being used by stakeholders on the project in a single workflow—reducing costly errors and re-work.
The SNM940 can also be used to receive GPS correction information for high-accuracy positioning with Trimble’s GPS-based machine control systems. This reduces the need for additional GPS and radio communications infrastructure on the construction site, increasing operating range and operational flexibility. Read More
