Trimble CCSFlex — Affordable Compaction Mapping System

Pass Count Mapping System for Soil and Asphalt Compaction Machines at a Very Affordable Price


SUNNYVALE, Calif., Aug. 23, 2011—Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) introduced today the Trimble® CCSFlex™ Compaction Control System for soil and asphalt compactors. The CCSFlex is designed to offer both asphalt and earthmoving contractors an easy-to-use and affordable system for pass count mapping.

Ideal for both small contractors as well as contractors with large fleets, the CCSFlex can be used on soil and asphalt compactors for work on a variety of surfaces—from residential and county roads to highways and runways. It offers a reliable, flexible and affordable option for contractors looking to leverage compaction control technology to be more competitive.

Using the CCSFlex to record and display pass count information, contractors can more efficiently compact, increasing production while maintaining the quality of each layer. Pass count information is displayed graphically on the bright, sunlight-readable CB450 control box. By increasing compaction efficiency, contractors can complete work faster, limit fuel consumption and reduce operating costs. Additionally, pass count information is easily exported or printed to provide compaction documentation to site management and local government agencies.

CCSFlex is easy to install and deploy. Contractors can start with the low cost "system in a case" solution and add sensors as their needs change. Add-on sensor options expand the system functionality to provide compaction meter values (CMV) for soil and temperature mapping during asphalt compaction. In addition, contractors can choose accuracy levels ranging from standard to high precision, matching their needs and budgets. The CCSFlex is quickly installed on a compactor with no requirement for welding or drilling and can be easily moved between compactors, making it ideal for use on rental machines. Deployment is simple as there is no need for 3D design files or GPS infrastructure in the basic system. 

The Trimble CCSFlex System is part of the Trimble Flex family, a new category of machine control solutions introduced at ConExpo 2011. These systems are designed to meet the needs and budgets of owner operators and small to mid-sized contractors involved in a range of earthmoving and compaction work. The systems are also ideal for contractors looking for an affordable option for the deployment of many systems across large fleets. The rugged Flex family systems are easy to install, learn and use.

Trimble's CCSFlex is affordable and offers high value for the investment. The "system in a case" starts as low as $11,995 USD depending on region. Now more contractors can realize the benefits of Trimble compaction control technology on their jobs at a price point that fits to their budget with the guarantee of the Trimble brand.

The CCSFlex System for soil and asphalt compactors is available now through Trimble's SITECH® Technology Dealer channel and other Trimble Heavy and Highway dealers.
