Outback Sts features a 7-inch, high resolution color touch screen. The electronically integrated Outback Steering Guide uses GPS data and specific job details to provide real-time job data and precision guidance. It features a variety of guidance patterns and the ability to set and adjust guidance lines.
Outback Sts also boasts a wide array of job management options, including setting perimeters, dropping mark flags, creating job templates, and recording job-specific notes such as the type of crop, the wind direction, and temperature. All this information can be stored on the system internal memory or the data can be conveniently transferred via the USB port.
All of the features are powered by Crescent, the company’s patented GPS receiver technology.
Outback Sts is designed to be expandable and work with a variety of other Outback Guidance products. The functionality of Outback Sts is expanded by Outback eDriveTC GPS assisted steering system which uses GPS technology to automatically steer the tractor, resulting in more uniform treatments and less waste. Outback Sts also works with Outback AutoMates’, an automatic boom control system that monitors and controls individual sprayer sections to minimize overlaps and skips.
“Hemisphere GPS is proud to introduce the Outback Sts,” said Dean Ryerson, Senior Vice President and Chief of Agriculture of Hemisphere GPS. “The combination of its simplicity, superior performance, and expandability means the Outback Sts will deliver incredible savings and a quick return on investment to our customers.”
Hemisphere GPS will begin shipping Outback Sts in March 2009. Backed by Hemisphere GPS’ longstanding commitment to quality and customer satisfaction, Outback Sts comes with a 1-year standard manufacturer’s warranty and an optional 3-year Extended Service Program (ESP). It will be available through Outback Guidance Centers and through select Hemisphere GPS distributors worldwide.
