Multiple user advantages when Rototilt® increases its RPS positioning solution

Press release   •   Feb 08, 2017 05:00 GMT

Rototilt Positioning Solution gives together with the excavating system the machine driver full control on the tools position.

Two years ago, Rototilt® was first on the market with a positioning solution, RPS, which together with its excavation system, gives the operator an exact indication of the attachment’s position. Now, we have taken this one step further, as the RPS function can be retrofitted and fits all control systems offered by Rototilt®.

“We have had an amazing response to RPS and our customers are incredibly satisfied,” explains Sven-Roger Ekström, Product Manager at Rototilt®. Being able to offer customers both retrofitting of RPS and RPS for all of our control systems, feels great as the demand has been tremendous,” continues Sven-Roger.

Fits the industry’s leading excavation systems
Via RPS, Rototilt® has adapted its software and created interfaces for the industry’s leading excavation system manufacturers, such as Leica, Trimble, Topcon and Novatorn. Thus, it provides the opportunity to utilize all tiltrotator movement patterns, in the excavation system. For the user, this means being able to determine an attachment’s position with exact precision and, thus, increase productivity.

Available for all control systems
Previously, RPS was available with our ICS control system, but now, we are able to offer a stand-alone solution, where RPS is available for all of our control systems: TLE, TE, P and Prop.

“The simplest and easiest solution is in combination with the ICS control system, where we already use sensors and electric swivels for other functions, and RPS is naturally integrated into our advanced control system. It feels great to also be able to offer RPS for all of our other control systems,” says Sven-Roger.

Retrofitting RPS
Depending on the excavator, if you have a Rototilt® R4, R5, R6 or R8 tiltrotator, you can retrofit RPS.

“It seems obvious to offer all R series users the opportunity to retrofit RPS,” concludes Sven-Roger Ekström.
