Trimble Introduces New Spectra Precision RD20 Wireless
For Use With New Wireless LR Laser Display Receivers
SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 10, 2013—Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) introduced today the Spectra Precision® RD20 wireless in-cab remote display, expanding its laser machine display portfolio for construction. The RD20 works with the new wireless LR laser receivers to provide grade information to help operators increase productivity and improve safety.
The remote display can quickly and easily be positioned, without cables, for optimum viewing in the cab. Large, bright LEDs display red, blue or green lights to signal high, low or on-grade. An audible signal is also provided, so the operator is free to focus on the work at hand.
The RD20 gives the operator the ability to configure the accuracy and brightness settings of the receiver without leaving the cab. Additional setting control capability including plumb indication, blade tilt, laser offset, and blade slope match are also available depending on the model of LR receiver. The RD20 is designed to work with the new LR30W, LR50W and LR60W laser receivers. The wireless display receivers have all the features and benefits of the conventional laser display receivers. They install in minutes without wiring or welding and can instantly increase productivity on a skid-steer loader, backhoe, excavator, bulldozer or trencher.
The RD20 remote display and wireless LR laser receivers are available now through the Spectra Precision Dealer Network.
