Hemisphere Machine Control

Hemisphere provides GNSS solutions for 3D machine control that allow you to work smarter and more accurate while saving time and money. Utilizing GNSS technology, Hemisphere uses satellites for RTK and relays it back to the machine. These solutions are available for dozers and excavators and can be used for construction, mining, and more. Hemisphere machine control consists of three products: VR1000 GNSS Heading Receiver, VR500 GNSS RTK Smart Antenna and IronOne Rugged Display. Grade, cut/fill, create ramps or basic roads with Hemisphere's high quality GNSS solution today!

Key Features

  • Access to all GNSS satellite constellations for maximum accuracy and maximum coverage in difficult environments; including GPS, GNSS, GLONASS, BeiDou, Galileo, and QZSS
  • 2D, 2.5D, 3D operation modes all come standard. Operators can create pads to mach an existing or required height, and create batters, ramps, and slopes all on-site from the cab within seconds
  • Dynamic cut/fill to center or either side of the blade to allow operators to know the exact location and depth of their built or desired design surface without the time and cost of grade-checkers and survey professionals
  • Simplified user interface with multiple views including plan view, profile view, cross-section view, and more
  • Supports industry standard file formats including dwg, dxf, and LandXML
  • Easily locate lines and points yourself, checking site design and attributes as you go
  • Map projections or localized coordinate systems allow simple site coordination to existing coordinate systems or creation at new sites
  • Operators visualize the site in real time, eliminating delays and enabling fast and efficient completion of all site work including ramps, batters, trenches, slopes, and pads

Benefits

  • Right First Time - Less passes, work faster, reduced operator skill requirement, reduced fuel costs
  • Material Savings - Optimize remove/replace, improve transportation cost, control soil disposal cost
  • Reduced Survey Cost - Less site preparation, less checking, less rework, less stake replacement
  • Improved Safety - Less personnel around machines, operator stays in machine
  • 3-Year Warranty - Best in class warranty
  • Easily Adaptable - Primary components can be moved easily and quickly between machines
