Exeter, Ontario, Canada – January 11, 2024 − Latec Machine Control, a Canadian manufacturer of cutting-edge laser machine control solutions, has launched its newest addition to its line-up: the SR-S.

A modified EG receiver, the SR-S adjusts the height of your laser screed without the need for a control box. The SR-S transmits signals directly to the Somero Copperhead’s operations box, offering a pin-compatible replacement for the GCR-4 receiver.

In addition to its independent control, the SR-S is also compatible with both the EG1 and EG2 systems. Features include accuracy of +/- 3.5mm to +/- 1mm (laser dependent), 7mm on-grade band and LED indication.

“The development of the SR-S is a continuation of the research and innovation Latec Machine Control is known for,” remarked Rob McIntosh, President of Latec Machine Control. “Its introduction further demonstrates our commitment to delivering cutting-edge solutions to our customers, optimizing efficiency and precision in their operations.”

Key features of the SR-S include:

  • Accuracy of +/- 3.5mm to +/- 1mm (laser dependent)
  • 7mm on-grade band
  • LED indication
  • 12-30 VDC supply voltage
  • Typical current consumption of 100 mA
  • Compatibility with 300-900 RPM lasers
  • 160mm photocell receiving width
  • 360° beam detection capability
  • EG1/EG2 compatibility
  • Pin compatibility to replace Trimble GCR-4 Receiver
  • Warranty coverage: 1 year

The SR-S is now available for purchase on the Latec Machine Control website. List price is $1,550 USD.
