Carlson Machine Control released Carlson PD Command, a site management software that provides multiple views of pile driving machines in the field. This is a partnering software solution to Carlson’s PD Grade system developed for pile driving machines. PD Grade provides operators with field information from an MC ruggedized touch tablet to ensure proper navigation, positioning, and alignment.
Carlson PD Command functions as a link between the office and machines by allowing supervisors to remote into machines and send messages to operators. Supervisors can upload files and edit projects to a single machine, or your entire fleet, utilizing an internet connection. Command shows project progression, tracks machine utilization, and generates custom productivity reports in real-time.
“Our customers in the solar, construction, and piling industries can benefit from the GPS-guided PD Grade System, and now utilizing Carlson PD Command, Supervisors can have a complete handle on their site’s productivity,” says Tim Jones, Director of Carlson Machine Control. “PD Command is the key for optimization by providing feedback on performance and allowing sites to navigate the day-to-day for the greater goal of improvement.”
