If you build solar array projects and you’re not currently using GPS-based machine control systems for your pile drivers, now is the perfect time to discover how it can save you significant money.

RDO Integrated Controls, together with Carlson Software and Vermeer, developed an automated GPS-based machine control system: Carlson PD Grade. RDO Integrated Controls is proud to be the exclusive seller of this technology in the U.S.

  • Originally developed for the Vermeer PD10 pile driver, Carlson PD Grade is adaptable to work on all pile drivers in the market.
  • Users confirm they place piles more accurately and efficiently than by using the traditional staking method.
  • The system allows the ability to track all information on each pile that is installed. An extensive log is created that shows actual location and elevation, average pile time, average azimuth, number of piles driven, time to drive each pile and more.
  • RDO Integrated Controls delivers this technology to contractors wherever they are located and offers supports through its best-in-class Solutions Center.
