Setting Up the System

1. Use the provided sensor-mounting plates to attach each sensor. Ensure that the on/off switches are accessible when considering where to mount the sensors. Use one of the following methods: ­ Apply epoxy tape. Trimble recommends this method for the boom and stick sensors. Before applying the tape, clean the area of grease, oils, and dirt. When mounting the sensor mounting plates, apply firm pressure upon contact of tape with mounting surface to aid bond strength. The epoxy tape reaches full cure in 24 hours. ­ Use through-holes on the mounting plate to screw the sensor in place. ­ Weld the sensor mounting plates on the boom, stick, and bucket. Trimble recommends welding the bucket sensor mounting plate. Always follow the manufacturer's recommended instructions when welding and/ or drilling on the machine. 2. Attach the LR15 receiver so the receiver mounting pole is on a line between the stick and bucket pivots. Attach the laser receiver to any flat surface on the stick. Do not attach it to any sloping surface. 3. Screw the boom, stick, and bucket sensors to the mounting plate using the supplied hex wrench to tighten the screws inside each corner of the sensor. 4. Attach the bucket sensor ensuring moving parts will not interfere and/or touch the sensor. 5. Weld the plate to the bucket. Trimble recommends this method. Note ­ When welding on a machine, insure all sensors are removed from the machine and all power connections are disconnected. 6. You can also add two additional sensors: ­ Articulated Boom ­ Mount the sensor in the same way as on a machine with a single boom. ­ Tilt Bucket ­ Place the sensor in a location on the front and/or back of the bucket where it is least likely to interfere with moving parts.

Setting up the sensor

Note ­ This step is not required for a new DDS300 system, which has the serial numbers of each sensor already configured in the CB300 control box. 1. Press Main Menu. 2. Press Sensor Setup. The serial numbers of all existing sensors appear in the Auto Detect Sensors window.

3. Install the required sensors and then record the serial number of each sensor on the Calibration sheet (provided). 4. Turn on the sensors and then press Boom. 5. Select the appropriate sensor and serial number for each boom. For example, press 20001 for the boom sensor. Alternatively, if you want to enter a serial number, press Serial Number, enter the number and then press Back. 6. Repeat Step 4 through Step 5 for each remaining sensor. Note ­ Radio angle sensors are generic in that they can be assigned to any location on a machine.

7. To calibrate the boom: a. Position the boom so the pivot points are horizontally level. Note ­ It is important that the boom is as close to horizontal as possible to ensure accurate calibration and system performance. Use any one of the following methods to accomplish this: - Horizontal Laser - Taut stringline with a line level - Total Station b. Press Boom. c. Press Auto Offset. This completes boom sensor calibration. 8. To calibrate the stick: a. Position the stick so that the pivot points are vertically plumb. Note ­ It is important that the stick is as close to vertical as possible to ensure accurate calibration and accurate system performance. Use any one of the following methods to accomplish this: - Vertical laser - Plumb bob on a stringline - Total Station b. Press Stick. c. Press Auto Offset.

DDS300 / DDS300-1 Depth Display System User Guide 25

Setting Up the System

This completes stick sensor calibration. 9. To calibrate the bucket: a. Position the bucket so that the bucket pivot and bucket tip are vertical. Note ­ It is important that the bucket is as close to vertical as possible to ensure accurate calibration and accurate system performance. Use any one of the following methods to accomplish this: - Vertical laser - Plumb bob on a stringline - Total Station b. Press Bucket. c. Press Auto Offset. This completes bucket sensor calibration. Once all sensors are calibrated, press Accept. You are now ready to test the system accuracy.

Variable articulated boom sensor calibration

In some cases it may not be possible to get the pivot points of the variable articulated boom horizontal for calibration. In these cases, place the boom vertically for calibration. When using this method, you will need to update the sensor data in the VA Boom screen with ±90°, based on the location of the RAS300 sensor, as to right and or left side of boom. If the RAS300 is placed on the left side of the boom, add 90° to the number displayed. If the RAS300 is on the right side of the boom, subtract 90° from the number displayed. To ensure this sensor assignment is correct, move the boom and if the movement of the boom is correctly displayed assignment is correct.

Variable Articulated Boom in vertical position for calibration of sensor

Tilt bucket sensor calibration

To calibrate the sensor, place a level on the sides of the bucket ensuring it is vertical. Once vertical, press Auto Offset. Note ­ For tilt bucket sensors, if the sensor is mounted on the front of the bucket ( facing the operator), assign the sensor to the left side. When the sensor is mounted on the back of the bucket, assign the sensor to the right side.
