Trimble Australia announces the introduction of the new Compaction Control System designed for bulk earthworks and landfill operations. Trimble’s GNSS-based machine control solution improves efficiency of bulk earthworks and landfill compaction operations, helping to reach target density faster and with less machine wear.

Trimble CCS900 Compaction Control System is installed on a four-drum soil or landfill compactor, and allows the machine operator to make more uniform and efficient passes, report compaction production data in the field, and ensure target compaction is reached with minimal fuel usage and machine wear.

Trimble CCS900 Compaction Control System was presented for the first time at the Waste Expo 2014, North America's largest solid waste and recycling tradeshow.

CCS900 for Bulk Earthworks

The CCS900 system tracks compaction passes in real time with easy-to-read colour mapping on the in-cab display. It improves bulk earthworks operations by ensuring fill material is adequately balanced and uniformly compacted from the bottom up.

CCS900 for Landfills

Landfill operations require contractors to compact the maximum amount of waste into the smallest area of vertical and horizontal cell space. Using CCS900, landfill owners can ensure that cell space is optimised, voids are eliminated and layers are compacted to their target density more efficiently. With real-time mapping on the in-cab display, the operator can avoid unnecessary passes that waste fuel and cause additional wear on the machine. The system also collects as-built layer information for in-field reporting and tracking of daily volumes.

In-field Reporting and Printing for Quality Control

Trimble CCS900 offers extensive in-field reporting options, including in-cab report generation and printing for both soil and landfill applications, allowing compaction production analysis to be carried out in the field instead of waiting until data is transferred back to the office. Compaction progress and problem areas are indicated on the in-cab graphical control box and listed in the in-field report so they can be addressed immediately, instead of at project completion when re-work is more costly. An optional serial printer in the compactor cab also enables supervisors to sign off on completion of the compaction work in the field.

The Trimble CCS900 Compaction Control System is available worldwide through Trimble’s worldwide SITECH Technology Distribution network.
