This new pile driving machine software optimizes solar site construction, fleet management in real-time


Carlson Machine Control released Carlson PD Command, a site management software that provides multiple views of pile driving machines in the field. This is a partnering software solution to Carlson’s PD Grade system developed for pile driving machines. PD Grade provides operators with field information from an MC ruggedized touch tablet to ensure proper navigation, positioning, and alignment.

Carlson PD Command functions as a link between the office and machines by allowing supervisors to remote into machines and send messages to operators. Supervisors can upload files and edit projects to a single machine, or your entire fleet, utilizing an internet connection. Command shows project progression, tracks machine utilization, and generates custom productivity reports in real-time.

“Our customers in the solar, construction, and piling industries can benefit from the GPS-guided PD Grade System, and now utilizing Carlson PD Command, Supervisors can have a complete handle on their site’s productivity,” says Tim Jones, Director of Carlson Machine Control. “PD Command is the key for optimization by providing feedback on performance and allowing sites to navigate the day-to-day for the greater goal of improvement.”

Have you checked out our YouTube page?

We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.

Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.

We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
