Trimble Integrates LOADRITE Excavator and Wheel Loader Scales Payload Data with VisionLink to Optimize Productivity

LAS VEGAS, March 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Trimble (NASDAQ:TRMB) announced today the integration of LOADRITE® X2350 excavator scales and L2180 wheel loader scales with Trimble's VisionLink® fleet, asset and site productivity management software version 2.10. LOADRITE weighing systems help increase productivity and efficiency for excavator and wheel loader operations, allowing material movements to be tracked and creating more efficient loading. Integration with VisionLink gives machine operators and managers instant access to excavator and wheel loader payload information such as total bucket loads, trucks loaded and running totals in near real-time through their VisionLink subscription plan. If additional reporting is required, the LOADRITE systems have a separate monitor in the cab and accommodate an optional printer for outputting load tickets or end-of-shift reports in the field.

The announcement was made today at ConExpo 2014, one of the world's largest international exhibitions for the construction industry.

Optimize Excavator and Wheel Loader Payloads with LOADRITE and VisionLink

VisionLink version 2.10 allows project managers to remotely manage daily or total payload reporting from Trimble LOADRITE scale operations equipped with a Trimble® SNM940 Connected Site® Gateway, which is a telematics communications device. Integrating payload weight information with fleet dynamics and cycle time tracking provides metrics for monitoring and improving both machine and project performance.

Machine operators work as they normally would on site, entering data with the easy-to-use features on the LOADRITE in-cab display. The Trimble SNM940 Connected Site Gateway automatically relays data to VisionLink for near real-time analysis and action. VisionLink then serves as the interface for managers to make allocation decisions and minimize bottlenecks with a series of reports on individual bucket loads, tons per hour and unused capacity.

"VisionLink turns data into solutions to optimize machines, uptime and the jobsite. With the addition of LOADRITE payload data, VisionLink delivers more value with even greater operational visibility to boost productivity, uptime and lower operating costs," said Roz Buick, vice president and general manager of Trimble's Heavy Civil Construction Division. "The connection between Trimble LOADRITE scales and VisionLink creates near real-time site visibility into excavator and wheel loader payloads, and gives VisionLink customers powerful tools to optimize excavator operation."

Availability

LOADRITE products are expected to be available in March 2014 through Trimble's LOADRITE Authorized Distributor. VisionLink is available through the worldwide SITECH® Technology Dealer Channel.
