The next generation of machine control from Leica Geosystems combines advanced technology with simplicity. Designed to be fully interchangeable and future-proofed across all machine types, the new Leica iCON Excavate 3D solution keeps you powered on, whatever your project demands.
Consolidating all machine applications, Leica iCON Excavate is the one-for-all software solution platform to guide and automate all heavy construction machines.
Leica iCON Excavate 3D
Comparing the design model to the actual position of the machine’s cutting edge, such as the bucket or blade edge, iCON machine control software assists the operator to position the machine to achieve the planned design. Leica iCON Excavate automatically controls the position of the machine’s cutting edge, increasing efficiency for operators on construction sites.
Leica iCON Excavate is combined with the rugged Leica MCP80 control panel, ensuring an interchangeable panel between machines onsite. The new Leica iCON solution is fully integrated into the heavy construction workflow, supported by the cloud-based Leica ConX productivity platform for more efficient management of heavy construction projects.
Improved Data handling
Leica iCON Excavate simplifies design data handling and is open to all standard design data types, enabling a flexible dataflow to support common workflows on a job site. All machinery on the construction site, as well as Leica iCON site field solution, are now running on the same design data structure, meaning that no data conversion is required. Furthermore, a seamless data transfer between machines, field units within the job site and office are guaranteed.
Reduce costs, increase productivity
Consistency in software design throughout all heavy machine control applications reduces our customers’ training efforts and optimises their learning curve. The same software platform can be used with different sensor configurations, which improves scalability and training. Furthermore, installers benefit from simplified installation and service processes.
Simplified work progress
An intuitive graphical interface with custom-centred design supports our customers in getting their job done faster and more precise. The software interface is uncluttered and with familiar symbols to help the operator focus on the important steps. An intelligent licensing system facilitates the add-on of another machine solution, giving users full flexibility in their machine control solutions.
Take Control with Leica MC1
The new Leica MC1 platform for excavators delivers a simple and intuitive user interface for building complex designs with simpler workflows.
Take control of your projects digitally with Leica iCON integrated solutions designed to connect your entire site, improve efficiency and increase productivity.
One Hardware Across Machines – Leica MCP80 Control Panel
The MCP80 is a new cutting-edge control panel, future-proofed to protect your investment. Equip machines with the new docking station and transfer the cable-free MCP80 panel between machines as the job requires, regardless of type, make or model.
Built with tough environmental specifications, the Leica Geosystems docking station and MCP80 panel are designed to operate in extreme temperatures (-40 °C to +65 °C) and are water, vibration and shock proof.
Connectivity is assured with the integrated cellular modem enabling you to stay connected to your jobsite from anywhere in the world. With the fastest and most reliable 4G / 4GX modem you can sync data between field and office effortlessly and access remote support when needed.
Designed to deliver maximum productivity, Leica iCON Excavate machine control system integrates one common software platform with one hardware that is interchangeable across your fleet.
Bulk Earthworks and Civil Construction
Load any 3D design file into the Leica iCON MC1 system and get real time cut and fill values displayed on the screen of your excavator allowing the operator to cut precisely.
Use the Leica iCON MC1 system to provide depth guidance for any trenching application. Work directly from the original 3D terrain models, or 3D line work to cut your trench to grade first time. All this without the need for grade checkers to enter the trench.
Use the Leica iCON MC1 system to excavate underwater – designed specifically for dredging, clearing and operating in water. The Leica iCON MC1 system colour maps as you excavate so you can track where has been excavated and what work still needs to be done.
When filling material in pipe trenches or formations, simplify the process by entering the desired material depth and slope required. The system stores multiple depths and slopes for several layers.
Safety First – When digging in surroundings where there are objects above the excavator that are potentially dangerous (e.g. power cables), a Height Alarm can be set which warns the operator of boom, stick, and bucket heights in relation to the hazard.

“Using a single supplier, Global Survey, and single brand, Leica, for all our positioning, measurement and machine control technology means everything on site integrates seamlessly, and as a result return on investment has been very rapid. Global Survey’s after sales support has been amazing and definitely a reason for us continuing to work with them.”
