Leica iCON excavate iXE3 is a highly advanced 3D excavator system for machine control solutions. Complex excavating jobs can be handled easily and with high accuracy, saving you a lot of time and cost by eliminating grade checking and reducing rework.
Leica iCON excavate iXE3 offers you 2D and 3D machine control in one control panel. You can work with dual grade functions in 2D as well as reference models and GNSS in 3D. Switch view with the touch of a button.
The advanced 3D software allows you to create simple terrain models directly in the control panel - a new feature providing great flexibility in the field. With the unique PowerSnap concept, Leica iCON excavate iXE3 simplifies system installation and enables rapid interchange of control panels between machines in your fleet.
The system supports Leica iCON telematics which enables you easy data transfer from office to machines, remote support and fleet management via the iCON telematics website.
Advanced 3D guidance
iCON excavate iXE3 uses 3D design (CAD) models and state of the art GNSS technology to guide the operator. Design information and real-time cut/fill indications are displayed in the cab on your control box, allowing you rapid excavation to the reference design. The system eliminates the need for grade checking, increasing both safety and productivity. No need for surveyors to enter the earthworks area.
Integrated tilt rotator support
Leica iCON excavate iXE3 provides integrated tilt rotator support, giving the operator clear guidance information about the actual tilt and rotation position relative to his project. iCON excavate with tilt rotator support increases your productivity and lets you maximise the use and benefits of your machine control solution.
You want to use your control panel on several machines in your fleet with an easy, quick install? PowerSnap allows simple and fast exchange of the panel between different machines.
The patented Snap-on & Snap-off technology from Leica Geosystems allows machine sensors and control panels to be interchanged for rapid reconfiguration of machine control hardware. Swapping control panels and sensor technology has never been easier and faster - alter machine capabilities as your project needs change.
The days of being constrained and relying on batter rails, boards and string lines is coming to an end, with the revolutionary Leica iCON excavate iXE3 system. Typically a site survey will be conducted; turning physical data into terrain models. As the construction process continues, this data is interpreted into rails, boards and other markers. This takes time not to mention expense!
Using the Leica iCON excavate iXE3 the operator works directly from the original 3D data produced by site engineers. Operators can then reach target depth and grades with ease. Using the Bluetooth and wireless capabilities of the Leica iCON excavate iXE3 display screen the data can be sent straight back to the site office speeding up excavation and prevents over/under dig. This will positively impact project costs and make you more profitable!
Use the system to provide sub-centimeter depth guidance for any application. Simply enter the desired depth and slope into the in-cab display, or work directly from the original 3D terrain models. All this without the need for grade checkers to enter the excavation area.
Blind & Submerged Cuts
Use the system to 'see' underwater – designed specifically for dredging, clearing and operating in water. Just follow the position of the bucket by means of seven bucket position indicators on the full colour, 3D rendered display.
When filling material in pipe trenches or formations, just enter the desired material depth and slope required. The system can store multiple depths and slopes for several layers.
Grading uneven surfaces can be done with speed and ease. Just enter the desired depth and slope into the in-cab display or work directly from GNSS coordinates. Grading has never been so simple.
Safety First - When digging in surroundings where there are objects above the excavator that are potentially dangerous (e.g. power cables), you can set an Alarm Height that warns the operator of boom, stick, and bucket heights.
