Paving Control for Slipform Pavers

Once you start paving concrete with PCS900, you’ll wonder how you could ever use string line. Trucks can pull up and dump without driving around string. You’ll stop less often, grind fewer problems and blow away your target IRI number.

Features and Benefits

Trimble PCS900 Paving Control System for Slipform Pavers uses automatic steering and 6-way control of the pan to keep the paver exactly on the target alignment, design and slope. The result is a more consistent concrete surface with better rideability and a bigger bonus – without the time and cost of string.


You’ll see efficiency improvements from day one through:

  • Improved site logistics and safety
  • Better yield
  • Increased smoothness
  • Less rework and grinding

Greater Control

For even greater control of material placement, Trimble offers a dual GNSS-based paving control solution for placer/spreader machines to:

  • Significantly improve paving productivity
  • Reduce material waste
  • Reduce labor costs

The GNSS-based system allows contractors to move their Trimble GCS900 Grade Control System display, radio, sensors and GNSS receivers between even more machines in their fleet.

Curb and Gutter Paving

  • Reduced time spent on most survey, concrete paving, and earthworks tasks by 25%
  • Costs are minimized with Trimble site positioning and machine control technology because teams don’t have to set string or wait on surveyors to check grade
  • Crews can arrive on site and immediately start pouring concrete

Technical Information

Field-proven Trimble SPS930 Universal Total Stations, machine sensors and office software make the Trimble PCS900 Paving Control System the ideal choice for your stringless operations. It can be used on new or used slipform pavers from many different manufacturers.

Trimble SPS930 Universal Total Station 

The Trimble SPS930 Universal Total Station controls alignment of the machine and gives the system millimeter control over the pan. It works flawlessly in tunnels and overpasses, in tight corridors and over long distances.

Trimble Hot Swap 

Trimble Hot Swap technology makes total station transitions faster and less dependent on manual intervention from the operator. It automatically maintains the same tolerance between total stations, ensuring a smoother surface at the transition point and reducing the need to grind problem spots.

Trimble Business Center Software

Data preparation for concrete paving projects is easy with Trimble Business Center software. You can create a 3D construction model and virtually "drive through" it to address any potential issues before you start paving.
