1.1. Customizing Text Items

Customizing Text Items

Note: The contents of the "Setup Menu" are configurable at the site. Depending on the "Operator Configuration" settings of your system and machine setting, the number of items in the "Setup Menu" may vary. Refer to your Site Manager if a specific option is not available.

You can customize the display in order to show text on the "Plan View", "Cross Section View", and "Text Views". Alternatively, you can choose to show no text at all.

The "Text Items" dialog allows you to select up to five items of information to appear on each of the views. If you choose to select only one or two items on a view screen, then the text uses a larger font than if three to five text items are selected. A "Text View" screen is not shown if the screen has no items selected.

If you select one to three items of information on the "Plan View" and the "Cross Section View", the items appear along the top of the view. If you select four or five items, then all of the items appear down the right side of the view.

Perform the following steps in order to set up the text Items.

  1. Press the "Plan View" soft key. A dialog that is similar to Illustration 2 appears.

The "Available Items" list shows all of the items that can appear in the "Plan View", "Cross Section View", "Profile View", "Text View 1", And "Text View 2". The items are described in table 1.

The following is a list of information for the "Text Items" dialog.

  • The opening screen shows the list of items that are selected to appear on the "Plan View".

  • Press the "Cross-Section" soft key in order to show the list of items that are selected to appear on the "Cross Section View".

  • Press the "Profile View" soft key in order to show the list of items that are selected to appear on the profile view.

  • Press the "Text View 1" soft key in order to show the list of items that are selected to appear on "Text View 1".

  • Press the "Text View 2" soft key in order to show the list of items that are selected to appear on"Text View 2".

  • If there are fewer than five items selected for a selected view, and the highlighted option in the "Available Items" list is not selected, the "Add" soft key is available.

  • If the highlighted option in the "Available Items" list is already selected, the "Remove" soft key is available.

  • If there are already five items selected to appear on the selected view, and the highlighted option in the "Available Items" list is not selected, the "Add" soft key is blank.

Perform the following steps in order to remove an item from any of the views.

  1. Press the one of the following soft keys in order to show the appropriate view list: "Plan View", "Cross-section", "Profile View", "Text View 1" and "Text View 2".

  1. Press the arrow keys in order to highlight the item to be removed.

  1. Press the "Remove" soft key.

Perform the following steps in order to add an item to any of the views.

  1. Press the one of the following soft keys in order to show the appropriate view list: "Plan View", "Cross-section", "Profile View", "Text View 1" and "Text View 2".

  1. Make sure that there are less than five items already selected.

  1. Press the arrow keys in order to highlight the item to add.

  1. Press the "Add" soft key.

    Note: Items appear in the order that you select the items. You can remove the items and then add the items in a different order in order to change their position on the screen.

  1. Do one of the following.

    • Press the "OK" key in order to save the settings and return to the "Setup Menu - Configuration" dialog.

    • Press the escape key and then press the "OK" key in order to return to the "Setup Menu - Configuration" dialog without saving the changes.

  1. Press the escape key in order to exit the "Setup Menu - Configuration" dialog. The changes take effect immediately.

Text View Options    
Items     Details    
"Alignment"     Displays description of line that is used for horizontal guidance    
"Avoid. Dist."     The "Avoid. Dist" is the shortest distance between the any one point and the closest avoidance zone.    
Blade Rotation     Indicates the angle of rotation of the blade.    
"Cross Slope"     Cross slope of the blade orthogonal to the direction of travel. This is not the measured tilt of the blade.    
"Cut Adjust"     When Cut adjustment is "Off", the text field indicates "N/A". When Cut adjustment is "On" and adjustment is applied, the text field shows the larger of the applied cut adjustments for the blade tips.    
"Cut/Fill Left"     Shows either Cut Left or Fill Left, as appropriate, for the left blade tip. If a vertical offset is specified, the Cut or the Fill is to the vertically offset position.    
"Design Elev"     Design elevation at the blade tip with focus.    
"Design Mainfall"     Mainfall of the design parallel to the direction of travel    
Design Name     Indicates the name of the design that is loaded on the Display.

"Easting"     Easting at the blade tip with focus.    
"Elevation"     Elevation at the blade tip with focus.    
"GPS Acc. Mode"     The selected GPS Accuracy mode is displayed. GPS Accuracy modes are fine, medium and coarse.    
"H. GPS Error"     A measure of the horizontal GPS Accuracy. The text is red if the value exceeds the current GPS error limit. The text is blue if the value is close to the limit. Otherwise the text is black.    
"Heading"     Direction the machine is moving. Shown in degrees clockwise from the north.    
"Layered Lift"     Vertical Offset between the master alignment and the working surface when a layered lift is defined. Value is positive if the layered lift is above the master alignment, negative if the layered lift is below the master alignment and "N/A" when no layered lift is defined.

Vert. Offset     Shows the amount of vertical offset applied to the working surface, using the vertical offset soft key. The vertical offset will be relative to the layered lift, perpendicular lift, or vertical lift if any of these are defined. The value is positive if the vertical lift is above the master alignment, negative if the vertical lift is below the master alignment and 0.000 when no vertical lift is defined.    
Vertical Lift     Vertical offset between the master alignment and the working surface when a vertical lift is defined. The value is positive if the vertical lift is above the master alignment. The value is negative if the vertical lift is below the master alignment. The value is "N/A" when no vertical lift is defined.
