Dredging Sensor Dives Deep Into Marine Environments

Leica’s MSS420 dredging sensor with stainless-steel bracket and rugged cabling targets marine applications. Reinforced components like water tight connectors, rugged cabling, robust sensor housing, and stainless-steel brackets make the sensor usable down to 40 meters at 4 bar pressure. In addition, the MSS420 sensor can be programmed to boom 1, boom 2, stick, bucket, and even tilt sensor. This simplifies changing of sensors even for less experienced operators.


Inertial measurement technology incorporated in the sensors and combined with gyroscopes and accelerometers offers the most responsive sensor technology on the market to improve digging accuracy and increase the operator’s overall speed in completing the work. The innovative solution significantly enhances performance, reduces the costly rework and increases uptime during poor GNSS coverage. For more information, an MSS420 datasheet is available.
