WHAT LEVEL OF PRECISION DO YOU NEED?
New Holland autoguidance solutions are compatible with a full range of guidance correction signals so that you can choose the exact level of precision that your operation requires. GPS and GLONASS correction signals are transmitted via a network of satellites that orbit the Earth and land based receivers can then determine their own position in relation to these signals. However, this alone is not accurate enough for agriculture, therefore a correction signal must also be used.
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a space based satellite navigation system and is part of a larger system called the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS). GNSS is a term used for all satellite constellation systems used to provide positioning data. Currently GNSS only covers GPS and GLONASS systems. GLONASS is similar to GPS and both are available worldwide. When auto guidance receivers track both GPS and GLONASS signals together, the number of 'visible' satellites is greatly increased which reduces the risk of losing satellite coverage for increased uptime.
EGNOS / WAAS / OMNISTAR VBS OFFER SUB 20CM ACCURACY
OmniSTAR VBS, EGNOS and WAAS offer accuracy of 20cm. This means that you can come back to the same point in your field pass after pass and be within 20cm of where you were before. This system is perfect for operators that simply want to get in and drive away and is best suited to crop spraying and tillage applications where accuracy and repeatability are not of prime concern.
OMNISTAR G2, XP AND HP OFFER SUB 12CM ACCURACY
The entry level OmniSTAR XP is your ideal partner for high performance broadacre spraying and land tillage applications. The OmniSTAR G2 system is perfect for operations which rely heavily on guidance and demand an around-the-clock uninterrupted signal, this is guaranteed as GLONASS satellites are used in addition to GPS satellites. The highest levels of accuracy can be obtained with OmniSTAR HP correction signals with accuracy levels as high as 10cm, this makes it the natural choice when conducting broadacre seeding and harvesting.
RTX PROVIDES REMOTE FARMS WITH SUB 4CM ACCURACY
For businesses in the most remote locations, or that cover vast areas, RTX uses a network of satellites or your mobile telephone, where coverage allows, to broadcast correction signals to keep your machine on the straight and narrow.
THE EXTENSIVE RTK RANGE OFFERS UP TO 2.5CM ABSOLUTE ACCURACY
RTK Radio Transmission uses a network of base stations in conjunction with radio correction signals to broadcast within a 12.87km radius of the base stations, when not obstructed by hilly terrain. RTK VRS uses your mobile telephone network to precisely locate your machine and provide real-time correction signals, without the need for base stations. With this level of accuracy you can conduct row crop applications, strip tilling, land levelling and even drainage applications which require precise horizontal and vertical accuracy. Quite simply, it’s the most accurate precision farming solution around.
