Trimble’s new AgGPS FmX integrated display is the first display system in the industry today to work as either a stand-alone manual guidance system or as part of an automated guidance, implement control or steering system.
The FmX display offers flexibility for use in a variety of GNSS applications, including those that require one or two receivers, such as vehicle guidance, a pull-behind implement or leveling and drainage equipment. It integrates with the Trimble AgGPS Autopilot automated steering system, TrueTracker for precision guidance of an implement, or with the FieldLevel II system for dual and tandem scraper control. The system can also vary crop inputs, control a planter, map fields and provide video camera input of field operations’ all with one display.
The FmX touch screen display is 12.1 inches, approximately 35% larger than the industry standard 10.4-inch screen, yet the display requires no more space in the cab than its predecessor, the AgGPS FieldManager display. Crisp graphics and a brighter screen make the FmX easier for the operator to see and interact with the applications being controlled.
In addition, Transcend technology, a proprietary Trimble positioning capability, is also integrated into the FmX integrated display, providing users with high accuracy, flexible solutions for the most challenging agriculture applications and environments. Transcend features the latest generation of GNSS chipsets and processors.
The FmX features two integrated, high-performance GNSS receivers, so no additional receivers are necessary to control a tractor and implement. Optional 450 or 900 MHz radios are also integrated into the display for real time kinematic (RTK) applications, along with support for up to four external video cameras.
Both receivers include GPS and GLONASS ( L1/L2/G1/G2) capability, offering a range of accuracy levels up to RTK GLONASS. The benefit to users is that a larger number of satellite signals can provide more robust positioning, even in difficult GPS or GLONASS environments.
The Trimble FmX integrated display is expected to be available in February. The FmX integrated display starts at $5,995 MSRP and options are priced separately. For more information, call 1-800-874-6253 or visit the Trimble Ag division Web site.
