Hemisphere GPS launched its G100 all-in-one steering and guidance system for auto-steer ready agricultural vehicles at the Ag Connect Expo in Orlando on Jan. 13.
With the G100 mounted on the roof of the cab, it can be easily connected to the ISOBUS port of the in-cab terminal. G100 comes with a custom software application that is developed specifically for compatibility with ISOBUS components to automatically sense the machine it is connected to for immediate startup and operation.
The first version of the G100 software is compatible with the AGCO Auto-Guide Ready tractors including AGCO DT-b and RT-a, Challenger MT600C and Massey 6400, 7400 and 8600 series. Future GPS 100 software releases will be compatible with additional agricultural equipment. Since G100 is a completely self-contained receiver, antenna and electronic control unit connecting to the existing in-cab terminal, there is no need for other cables or system modules, hence reducing electronic clutter in the vehicle.
“Our G100 Guidance System is a simple and easy way to put guidance into auto-steer ready equipment,” says Kip Pendleton, Vice President and General Manager of Agriculture for Hemisphere GPS. “We have put a significant amount of effort and resources into making G100 a ‘plug and play’ solution to simplify our customers’ auto-steering experience.”
G100 uses Hemisphere GPS’ patented Crescent receiver technology and tilt compensation to support parallel, pivot and contour farming.
The Hemisphere GPS G100 can be purchased through Outback Guidance Centers, select AGCO implement dealers and online at www.outbackguidance.com.
