Tight tolerances required for airport repaving

Suit-Kote won the job of resurfacing the 2 126meter long by 45 meter wide Ithaca-Thompkins airport runway. The Federal Aviation Administration mandates tight tolerances for airports. This combined with a tight deadline, the airport was shut to complete the work, meant Suit-Kote had to work efficiently. To do this they turned to SITECH Northeast in upstate New York.

SITECH were able to provide Suit-Kote with the Trimble PCS900 paving control system. This allowed them to keep the tight specs, demanding deadlines and to reduce high material costs and avoid string line problems. See their story below.

Trimble Updates



Having the latest version means you have the software or firmware’s latest features and advances and can be functioning at your best. That’s why we’re bringing you Trimble’s latest updates.



Heavy Civil Installation Manager has been replaced with Trimble Installation Manager

Heavy Civil Construction Installation Manager (HCCIM) will no longer be supported by Trimble, as of last week, and will be replaced by Trimble® Installation Manager (TIM).

TIM is used to install and update supported Trimble® software to a field controller connected to an office computer or tablet, or an office computer or tablet running TIM.

After the 19th October, the next time you run HCCIM on your desktop, laptop, or Trimble Site Tablet it will automatically be uninstalled and updated to TIM. You do not have to take any action to receive this update. There will be no impact to the way Trimble SCS90 Site Controller Software, Trimble SitePulse™, and Trimble DPS900 Machine Control Systems are downloaded onto licensed controllers.

You can find more information on Trimble Installation Manager on the Trimble website.

Check out Trimble Pulse

Having the latest version means you have the software’s latest features and advances, plus solutions to any known bugs. The most up-to-date software version for Trimble LOADRITE® Communications Controller (LCC) units is v2.01.0002.

It is highly recommended that any new LCC installs are updated to the latest software version prior to installation, and existing units in the field are upgraded as soon as possible. A number of bug fixes have been resolved in recent releases and the reliability of the LCC is significantly compromised by not upgrading.

If you need help updating your software, call our help desk on 1800 SITECH.
