Dig™ Software

Dig™ SoftwareCase excavator with machine control

With Dig™ Software, there’s no more need for manual flagging and painted alignment. Operators can excavate to 3-D plans using DGPS or RTK-GPS for GPS accuracy. While any level of GPS works with any level of the software, only Dig Software has hydraulic bucket control and RTK for automated bucket steering.

At its most basic, Dig Software shows the operator a plan view, allowing control of the bucket for slope to dig a trench. RTK-GPS and DGPS provide guidance, control, or both for an excavator.

For more productivity, Dig Software is available integrated with iDigBest hardware and design software. At its most sophisticated, Dig and iDigBest hardware and software work together to automate the bucket with the most accuracy available anywhere. With RTK-GPS, the combination is accurate to plus or minus .05 foot. With the older DGPS technology, accuracy is to two feet horizontally; a laser is required for the vertical component of an NEZ (three-dimensional) design.
