The 262 receiver is a low profile, combination GPS receiver and antenna, offering a choice of accuracy levels depending on operations. The 162 receiver serves as a low-cost, all-weather, Differential GPS (DGPS) smart antenna when less demanding applications are needed.
Both receivers feature Transcend technology, a proprietary Trimble positioning capability. Transcend features the latest generation of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) chipsets and processors from Trimble.
Both receivers also feature OnPath filter technology to reduce drift and improve accuracy, even in the absence of Satellite-Based Augmentation Service (SBAS) corrections.
The AgGPS 262 receiver relplaces the AgGPS 252, so it does not require new cabling and configuration. It is a dual frequency L1/L2/L-band receiver, which provides more channels, better signal handling and more accuracy options.
Options on the 262 receiver include sub-inch Real Time Kinematic (RTK), 4-inch OmniSTAR HP, 6-8 inch pass-to-pass OmniSTAR VBS or 6-8 inch pass-to-pass SBAS corrections, including the U.S. Wide Area Augmentation System (WAAS), European Geostationary Overlay Service (EGNOS) and Japan’s Multi-functional Satellite Augmentation System (MSAS).
The Trimble AgGPS 162 receiver provides DGPS information to precision agriculture equipment that accepts NMEA data. Radar speed output allows users to control their variable rate controllers without additional speed indicators. The rugged housing and SBAS accuracy make the 162 receiver a suitable and economical option for a wide range of applications. It is designed for yield monitoring or field mapping and is Autopilot system compatible. The 162 receiver is a combined antenna and GPS L1 receiver capable of SBAS corrections.
The Trimble proprietary RTK engine enables users to accurately farm with +/- 1 inch accuracy at an 8-mile range. Radar speed output allows users to control variable rate drivers without additional speed indicators, again saving farmers money by providing integrated components.
