WHAT LEVEL OF PRECISION DO YOU NEED?
New Holland PLM™ guidance solutions are compatible with a full range of guidance correction signals that enable you to choose the exact level of precision that your operation requires. GPS and GLONASS are satellite navigation systems that are owned and operated by the US and Russian governments. GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite System) is a term used to encompass all satellite constellation systems, but today GPS and GLONASS are the only systems included.
Both GPS and GLONASS are available to users worldwide. When using a GNSS guidance receiver to track both GPS and GLONASS signals together, the number of satellites the receiver can view is greatly increased. This means you will be less likely to lose satellite coverage, improving reliability, uptime and productivity. Neither GPS or GLONASS alone are able to provide the accuracy required for agricultural use and both require corrections to improve their accuracy. A wide range of correction services are available that offer a variety of accuracy levels, and PLM™ guidance systems give you the compatibility to choose which accuracy best fits your needs.
RTK SUB INCH ACCURACY
RTK Radio Transmission uses base stations in conjunction with radio correction signals to broadcast within an eight mile 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. RTK precision accuracy is ideal for 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.
CENTERPOINT™ RTX OFFERS +/- 1.5 INCH ACCURACY
Farms outside RTK base station coverage areas or that cover vast areas, can receive 1.5” accuracy with CenterPoint™ RTX from either, a satellite signal or a data connection, depending on your location.
OMNISTAR G2, XP AND HP OFFER SUB 4 INCH ACCURACY
OmniSTAR XP and OmniSTAR G2 provide 3” - 5” accuracy, and they are ideal for high performance broadacre spraying and land tillage applications. The OmniSTAR G2 will correct both GPS and GLONASS signals, increasing your satellite coverage and reliability. OmniSTAR HP provides 2” - 4” accuracy, making it ideal for high performance broadacre seeding, spraying and harvesting applications.
WAAS OFFERS PASS TO PASS ACCURACY OF 6 - 8 INCH
For operators who don’t require high accuracy or repeatability, this system is best suited for crop spraying and tillage applications.
