Depth Control System

EZ Dig Pro is a real-time depth-control system for excavators and backhoes. The one-person system uses no stakes or rod readings – operators see information in the cab, while they work. There is no need for the operator to stop digging to place the bucket and dipper stick in the same position each time an accurate reading is desired. EZ Dig Pro provides precise grade control by telling the operator the position of the bucket in relation to the target depth or slope. Sensors mounted on the excavator are calibrated to the machine. They take into account the movement and angle of the bucket, boom and dipper stick to give continuous depth control indication on the in-cab display. The display panel and LCD screen direct the operator to the desired depth and slope. Information is transmitted to the control panel at a frequency of 20 times per second, providing the operator with real-time information to the position of the bucket. EZ Dig Pro can be installed and calibrated in 45 minutes or less using its patent-pending software.
