The Matrix Pro Guidance System from TeeJet Technologies continues to offer RealView Guidance over Video as the first generation Matrix introduced last winter, but adds several new productivity-enhancing features.
The original Matrix guidance system is the only system available that displays guidance and live video simultaneously, improving accuracy and efficiency in field operations. Up to eight RealView cameras can be used to monitor multiple machine operations while at the same time viewing guidance information. Growers can choose Matrix Pro 570 with a 5.7″ (145 mm) display or Matrix Pro 840 with an 8.4″ (213 mm) display.
Matrix Pro, the next generation of Matrix, adds many new capabilities to the system. Matrix Pro helps growers save time by storing multiple field boundaries and multiple guidelines for use in future operations. Two-way data transfer allows uploading and downloading of job data, boundaries, no spray zones, AB lines and more. Matrix Pro’s unique NextRow feature guides operators through turns in row crop environments, helping them find the correct rows to steer between for the next pass. An enhanced user interface is also part of Matrix Pro ensuring easy, intuitive operation.
Matrix Pro is automatic steering and automatic boom section control (ABSC) ready. Adding FieldPilot, TeeJet’s hydraulic auto-steer system, can be accomplished in about half a day. Adding BoomPilot ABSC is economical and easy as well. In just a few minutes, growers can experience automatic control of up to 15 boom sections and reduce chemical consumption. Matrix Pro is able to multi-task so auto-steer, section control and RealView monitoring can be used in unison.
“Matrix Pro multi-tasks with ease so you can operate all your systems simultaneously,” says Rich Gould, vice president and guidance business manager at TeeJet Technologies. “Plus, all the new features of Matrix Pro add to the user’s productivity without complicating operation or adding cost. Matrix Pro is a real value.”
Additional Matrix Pro features include:
• Painted screen provides graphical display of field coverage including skips and overlaps
• Bright, easy-to-read display in all lighting conditions
• Color touch screen with split-screen, four-camera view
• Portable and easy to transfer between machines
• Built-in lightbar for full-time guidance no matter what’s on display
