Caterpillar MS980 GPS Receiver Set
The MS980 Smart GPS Antenna is an integrated GPS receiver and antenna designed to provide maximum portability and flexibility. It has been specifically designed for machine installation in the harsh construction environment, and has extensive field- proven performance in mining and construction applications. The dual antenna configuration is unique to Trimble GPS-based Grade Control Systems. Using GPS, the exact position, very accurate cross slope, and heading of the blade or bucket are measured. This is especially advantageous for complex design surfaces such as super-elevation grading tasks. The MS980 can also be used in a single antenna configuration on scrapers and motor graders. Ideal for a wide range of machines, you can use the MS980 Smart GPS Antenna for GCS900 blade control to 20-30 millimeters (0.1 foot).
