Idig 2d


iDig Touch


How much does iDig cost?

For the features and capabilities iDig beats all other systems by a significant cost difference of at least 8-12k. The return on investment in iDig can be easily calculated and in most cases is fully paid back in 3-6 months.

What type of Laser do I need to work with the iDig?

Any brand of rotating laser will work. Red, Green or even an Invisible beam, will be able to be used with your iDig. A non-rotating, line laser will not work.

Do I need to use a rotating laser?

No and Yes.

No. The iDig does not require you to have a laser setup on site, a benchmark can be carried across the site using the bucket edge.

Yes. If you are wanting the most accurate benchmark carried across a work site or if you are digging to a Grade, a laser will be required.

Does the iDig automatically pick up the laser all the time?


Before you start digging you just need to catch the laser once and this locks in the benchmark. Simply catch the laser again after you・・ve moved.

Do I need to re-bench when I move the excavator?


The iDig is most accurate when you are taking an accurate benchmark before you start digging. Preferably catching the Laser or reaching a correct datum point with the cutting edge.

What sized excavator can iDig be put on?


It・・s not about the size, but it・・s more about the work that machine will be doing! Any machine that will be used digging to a grade or a level will immediately benefit from having an iDig on board.

There are machines of all sizes around the world using the iDig every day, even 200t monsters in the mines of Western Australia.

Can I install iDig by myself? How long would it take?


The iDig system can be self-installed by anyone with some technical knowledge and machine operation experience in around 3-4 hours.

However, it is recommended that an experienced iDig installer is used to ensure a complete and accurate installation and calibration.

Does the iDig need to be recalibrated at any stage?


Once an excavator is calibrated the iDig is set. Recalibration will only be required if the sensors are moved or if the machine is changed physically in any way. Cutting edges of buckets can deform through wear and tear and if inaccuracies appear then a 90 second recalibration of the bucket is required.

Does the iDig use GPS?


The iDig is a 2D guidance system.

Do I need Tilt Sensors?

Only if you have either a tilting bucket, tilting hitch or an Auger attachment. Even then the Tilt Sensors are not mandatory but are highly recommended.

Do I need extra sensors to use an Auger with the iDig?

You will need the XD529 Tilt Sensor Kit for use with an Auger. If you have the Tilt Sensor kit already, then you do not need extra sensors for your Auger. You will need an additional Triangle Tilt Mounting Bracket to be installed onto the Auger, this will allow the sensors to be swapped from the Tilt Hitch to the Auger.

What do I need to use the iDig on another machine?

For each additional machine you need an ・・Extra Machine Kit・・. Depending on what model of iDig Touch you have this kit number could be either an XD527 (Small Combo) or an XD528 (Large Combo).

If you also have Tilt Sensors that you・・d like to swap along with your main iDig System, you・・ll also need an extra Tilt Sensor Mount (XD429).

If you have the Dozer Blade upgrade option, you・・ll need an extra mount for the blade sensor. This is an XD422.

If you have multiple machines that have a second boom, an additional XD422 Sensor Mount will also be required.

Can I use the iDig on a Skid Steer or Dozer?

No, the iDig is an excavator only system. With the new Dozer Grade function, why use another machine when your excavator can do it all?!

Can I leave the sensors on the machine?・


It is not recommended that you leave the sensors on the machine overnight or for extended periods. While the sensors are Solar Powered and will constantly charge while left on the mounts, they will still be on and there is a risk that they do not receive enough sunlight to recharge and therefore reduce the batteries capacity. Forgetting them and leaving them on over a weekend is fine and won・・t damage them in anyway, just leave them out in full sun to recharge fully before use.

How long will a ・・full charge・・ last for and what・・s the best way to charge the sensors?

As the sensors are solar powered and exposed to some sunlight when in operation, they・・re unlikely to fully discharge. If operating in the dark on full charge, the sensors will give up to 40 hours of operation in optimal conditions.

It is recommended that the sensors are left in open sunlight, not behind a window, to fully charge. If the batteries have fully discharged for whatever reason, they may take 1-2 days in sunlight to fully charge again.

What attachments can I use the iDig with?

The iDig can store up to 100 individual attachments. Buckets, Augers, Rippers, Levelling Bars, Brooms・・ Almost any attachment you can put onto your quick hitch can feasibly be calibrated to be used with the iDig.

I have a ・・double-boom・・ machine, how does the iDig work with this?

Double or Two Boom machines, such as the Eurocomach ES60 TR work extremely well with the iDig. All that is required is an extra mini sensor for the boom and to be calibrated as a double boom machine.

I have an excavator with a knuckle boom, can I use the iDig?

Only if you have a Kobelco excavator. iDig and Kobelco have worked together to enable seamless installation and calibration of the iDig onto Kobelco machines. A XD406 Radio Sensor kit is required.

Can I use the iDig to draw profiles or shapes?


While the iDig can simultaneously dig to a set depth and reach, you cannot create profiles or shapes with the iDig.

Can the onscreen units be changed to mm?


The minimum unit of measurement is 1cm and this is reflected in the onscreen measurements. There is a Metric option available which will show an onscreen number as 0.01m for example.

Can I change the ・・resolution・・ of the LEDs on the light bar indicator?


Each individual LED can represent a customised measurement, down to a minimum of 1cm (10mm).

Will iDig control or limit my excavator?


iDig is an indicate system only and is not plumbed into any hydraulic or control systems of the excavator.

I・・m used to the sound indications of my laser receiver, can the iDig give me similar alarms?

Yes. The audible alarms can be customised in any number of ways. The frequency, tone and time and usage can all be changed and set up to your discretion.

Can the sensors work under water?

Radio waves don・・t travel very well under water and so can have a significant impact on accuracy. However, the iDig does have a ・・River Mode・・ where you can dig underwater without receiving a signal from the bucket sensor.

What other functions does the iDig have?

There is a Tape Measure. You can place your bucket in one spot and move it anywhere in space to another spot (as long as the excavator doesn・・t move) and it will give you measurements from point to point of ・・ Height difference, distance, degree of slope and the length of that slope.

There is also a Height Alarm. You can set a maximum safe working height using the boom and dipper and have the iDig visually and audibly alert to when you reach that point. It・・s not a lockout system and is only a guide but can be handy working under a roof or powerlines.

There are additional upgrade options, such as ・・ Tilt Sensor Kits, Dozer Blade Control, Auger Compatibility, Tilt Rotator Compatibility and Kobelco Offset Kits for Kobelco knuckle boom machines.

iDig 2D Machine Control

iDig uses a simple combination of wireless, solar-powered sensors, an LED lightbar, an optional laser with laser receiver (or you can use one you already have) and a large colour touchscreen to take your benchmark into the cab and accurately guide you to your required depth or grade.

As you move the boom, stick and bucket the laser receiver and sensors communicate the bucket teeth’s position relative to finish grade, so the operator always knows the level he is working to.

The 2D system has a dynamic gyro sensor that unlocks the ability to work on a wide range of tasks including:

• Footings

• Foundations

• Drainage

• Trenches

• Pipe laying

• Tank settings

• Embankments

• Parking lots

• Sports grounds

• Roadwork

• Clamshell and auger

iDig is the brand new control "tool" providing at low price same functions as expensive sophisticated systems. Thanks to radio transmission between components, solar cells powered sensors, "fast-fit" fixing plates, installation can be made by the user itself. 01. Technology
