The new Matrix 430 is an easy-to-use and low cost GNSS guidance system. The compact unit features a graphical, touchscreen user interface that allows for fast setup and intuitive operation. The system is ideal for a wide range of field applications including spraying, spreading, tillage and solid seeding.
The Matrix 430 features a 4.3”/110mm high-contrast, full-color display for excellent visibility, even in bright light conditions. It contains an integral GNSS receiver that supports both GPS and GLONASS signals with a choice of two available antennas for enhanced performance in a wide range of geographies.
Other features include: return-to-point, coverage mapping, field area measurement, applied area alert, elapsed time counter, simple job reporting, and a choice of four guidance modes: Straight AB, Curved AB, Center Pivot, and Last Pass.
“The Matrix 430 builds upon our highly successful and proven CenterLine 220 guidance product while providing an enhanced user interface and expanded capabilities,” notes Tim Stuenkel, Global Marketing Manager with TeeJet Technologies. “This product is designed for the grower who wants a simple, affordable guidance system – whether they are a first time buyer or experienced user of GNSS guidance products.”
RX520 GNSS Receiver
The RX520 dual frequency GNSS receiver from TeeJet Technologies brings reliable, upgradable accuracy and performance to precision farming applications. It features an integrated L1/L2 GPS+GLONASS receiver and antenna in a single compact enclosure. Integral magnetic mounting allows for a clean, low-profile installation.
All RX520 receivers include ClearPath technology which ensures smooth, consistent position data even if brief signal losses occur. The standard L1/L2 SBAS receiver offers +/- 5-8 in pass-to-pass accuracy for a wide variety of field operations. Optional Precise Point Positioning (PPP) provides improved, +/- 2-4 in pass-to-pass, accuracy and year to year repeatability making it ideal for strip-till and other high precision operations. PPP accuracy is delivered via TerraStar subscription signal and is offered in 1-, 3-, 6- and 12-month packages.
“This is a very versatile receiver that is compatible with TeeJet and many third-party guidance and auto steer products” notes Tim Stuenkel, Global Marketing Manager with TeeJet Technologies. “Another great feature is the ability to pay for only the accuracy you need today, with the flexibility to upgrade to higher performance down the road as your needs change.”
