The X-22 is Topcon’s newest machine control system for hydraulic excavators. Using wireless tilt sensor technology makes installing and using this system fast and easy. With the X-22 excavator system, any operator can dig quicker, safer and more accurately than ever before.
The X-22 control box is a high-resolution, touch screen display that is easy to see, even in bright sunlight. The operation is simple. The menu guides you through the set up process with step-by-step instructions on how to calibrate and use the system. If you want to cut a trench, you will be guided through a simple menu as you set the width, depth and slope. The cross-section will be shown on the monitor in front of you. Different screen views such as profile, bucket and sectional are standard.
The X-22’s wireless tilt sensors are completely sealed, rugged and built to last. Each sensor is equipped with a quick-release mount, which makes it easy to move to different machines. The entire system can be installed in less than two hours and calibrated for to up to 20 different excavators. Plus, you can pre-measure for up to 20 different buckets per machine. This flexibility makes the X-22 system perfect whether you have a whole fleet of your own excavators, or rent machines. The wireless sensors are rechargeable. Eight hours of charging gives you over 120 hours of continuous usage. The sensors know the bucket’s position in real-time and the Control Box displays exactly how far it is from grade. The X-22 comes in two models – 1D and 2D. Both systems come with a Control Box and wireless sensors for the Bucket, Stick, and Boom. The stick sensor includes a laser receiver.
The Compass, Pitch and Roll Sensor is located on the body of the excavator on a short mast. It knows the machines exact orientation and communicates that information to the control box. No matter how the machine is positioned, the correct grade and slope is maintained. Uneven tracks are accounted for with the 2D model by utilizing the compass sensor on the body of the excavator.
The X-22 system is versatile and will make all your jobs – big or small – more productive. Reference any benchmark, set your depth in the control box and go to work. You can also use a rotating laser as your reference for flat or slope work. Set up your laser, bench in with the X-22 and you’ll know in an instant if you are above, below or exactly on grade.
With no cables to run and quick RAM™ mount hardware for the control box, the X-22 can be installed on a machine quickly and efficiently. The operator interface is simple yet provides all of the required features needed to complete all excavating tasks. Step by step the operator can build ditches, complex slopes, simple slopes and trenches just to name a few. With the ease of use and the efficient install, the X-22 makes excavating a breeze!
