Machine types

Topcon has adopted many brand names for their various 3D machine control configurations. LPS-900 is a high-accuracy system for graders and dozer that utilizes a robotic total station as a positioning source. The term LPS-900 is often used to decribe both the entire system and the robotic total station itself.

The LPS-900 shares hardware with other Topcon systems and can easily be reconfigured by changing components, -primarily the positioning sensors. Thus, systems for eartmoving can be moved over to a paver with few changes needing to be done.

Through acquisitions, Topcon's 3D machine control products incorporate technology from companies such as AGTEK and Javad Positioning Systems.

Topcon's GNSS technology is developed primarily in Russia, its optical products in Japan and its 3D machine control software in Australia.

Topcon Positioning Systems, Inc. is headquartered in Livermore, California and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Topcon Corporation, Tokyo. Topcon Corporation is a public company traded on the Tokyo Stock Exchange under the company code 7732. Toshiba Corporation is its primary shareholder with approximately 35% of the shares.
