Sonic Tracker Setup
The following steps describe installing and positioning the Sonic Tracker on the Paver. For more information see
“Sonic Tracker Placement” on page 45
1. Connect the coil cord to the Tracker (ST-3 or Sonic Tracker I I).
2. Bolt the Tracker to the bracket, and visually check to get the Sonic Tracker plumb.
3. Make one wrap of the coil cord around the L-Bar (Sonic Tracker I I only). This acts as a strain relief for the
connector on the Tracker.
4. Always, snap the temperature bail into place
5. Place the Sonic Tracker over the reference: raise or lower the Tracker bracket to position it at a proper
height above the grade reference.
6. Press the Survey button on the Control Box to lock trackers On-Grade.
7. Press an d h old t he Set button while dialing in mat depth.
8. Put the Control Box in Auto and begin paving.
SAS Setup
Once the SAS has been installed, the Slope Sensor automatically configures for SAS when powered on. The box
checks to see how many trackers are connected and average over that amount. Getting the Control Box ready
to pave is the same as with one tracker.
1. Connect each tracker as described in “Sonic Tracker Setup” on page 68, but using the SAS coil cord.
2. Place the SAS trackers over the reference: raise or lower the trackers bracket to position it at a proper
height above the grade reference.
3. Press and hold the Set button while dialing in mat depth.
4. Put the Control Box in Auto and begin paving.
The SAS system is designed to discontinue operating when one of the Trackers fails. When a failure occurs, the
color of the SAS icon on the Control Box’s Control screen changes from green or yellow to red (Figure 119 on
page 68). The number (1, 2, 3, and 4) represents each connected Tracker. If a Tracker is disconnected, the
corresponding icon disappears from the screen.

It is not necessary to start paving in manual as is traditionally done when using a mechanical ski. If
the setup procedures are followed correctly, paving with the SAS can and should start in Automatic.
