Construction Equipment Guide

Leica Geosystems’s CI-14 CAT interface module is designed to simplify and reduce cost of installation of its Leica Geosystems 2D and 3D machine control systems on modern Caterpillar earthmoving equipment.

Eliminating Costs

CI-14 eliminates the cost and effort of installing add-on hydraulic valves in order to control various Caterpillar K and T Series dozers and M Series motorgraders. In addition, the CI-14 can be used in conjunction with 2D machine control applications (laser, slope, or ultrasonic) and 3D machine control applications (GPS/GNSS as well as the Leica PowerTracker total station sensors). PowerGrade with the CI-14 interface offers “plug and grade” operation.

Key Benefits of CI-14

The CI-14 module provides simple and rapid plug-in installation for the latest Cat machines. It is compatible with both ARO-prepared and non-ARO bulldozers, as well as motorgraders. There is no CAT SEA license activation fee to pay.

The CI-14 module is suitable for 2D and 3D automatic control with failsafe operation and full operator override at any time. Robust, field-proven hardware and field-programmable software allow for future enhancements and the CAN-Bus design ensures reliable operation and simple diagnostics, according to the manufacturer.

“Leica Geosystems is committed to delivering further OEM interface options by working in close cooperation with leading OEMs to achieve our vision of being the leading provider of innovative machine control solutions,” according to Rich Calvird, product marketing manager.
