Hello,

TOPCON has control systems that can bypass the control valve for select blade control functions. I believe Trimble also offers the same setups.

It can be tied to a GPS or automatic laser system for auto-grade control.

What do you plan to do and how many functions are you trying to control?

CAT uses a machine ECM for the driver controls to operate the newer machines.

Is that what you are looking for?
