Stonex STX-SUITE allows the planning of the best piling pattern directly on the field (survey with GPS + tablet + integrated software), as well as the loading of existing CAD projects (.dwg, .dxf).
Centimeter accuracy positioning is provided by two Stonex GPS receivers (up to 20Hz), installed on a metal frame integrated in the pile driver machine structure.
Two steps make up the Stonex solution for guiding and GPS positioning of photovoltaic plants:
• Survey and Design:
Preparing the project in the office and importing the files on the tablet (.dwg or .dxf format).
Alternatively, it is also possible to create the project directly on the field, by surveying the orientation points
with GPS and tablet.
• Guide and Positioning:
Guide the pile driver machine and align it to the row-blueprint by simply following the tablet indication.
Stonex STX-SUITE software is specifically designed for this kind of applications and allows elaborating the survey data (stored with GPS), and create the site project in a very quick and effective way. The double GNSS receivers system installed on the pile driver machine allows defining the right-left orientation and the guiding direction of the machine with respect to the reference pile.
Stonex STX SUITE guides the machine on the exact position, by showing bearings and direction on the tablet. A biaxial inclinometer can help defining the vertical position of the stake during the driving process. Users have to simply align the machine along the direction of the row and adjust the reference mark (on the position of the virtual pile). When the machine position falls within the predefined tolerance, the guiding elements will turn green.
