AGCO Expands Service Offerings for Guidance Systems
AGCO’s partnership with NovAtel® provides more choice in correction services offerings for AGCO’s customers
DULUTH, Ga. – May 8, 2017 – AGCO Corporation (NYSE:AGCO), a world-leading manufacturer and distributor of agricultural equipment solutions, is expanding its automatic guidance product offering. AGCO Auto-Guide™ and VarioGuide customers using the NovAtel SMART6-L receivers, can now acquire TerraStar satellite correction signals to enhance positioning performance.
The TerraStar-C and TerraStar-L correction services are subscription based services that are delivered over satellite, utilizing a system of over 80 global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) stations to provide consistent accuracy worldwide. These correction services will maximize uptime and productivity by providing fast initialization to a reliable position, and instant re-convergence when the signal is lost. Providing decimeter accuracy levels through TerraStar-C of 5cm and submeter accuracy levels through TerraStar-L of 15cm pass to pass, customers can select the most appropriate service based on their specific growing operations.
“Our top priority is bringing our customers products and services to optimize their farming operations while giving them the flexibility to choose what is best for them. Partnering with NovAtel to bring our customers the additional TerraStar correction services to work with our Auto-Guide and VarioGuide guidance systems does just that,” says Matt Rushing, vice president, Global Fuse Product Line.
AGCO’s partnership with NovAtel is a product of Fuse® and its open approach to precision agriculture. Fuse promises to focus on helping customers optimize their farms through seamless technology integration and connectivity.
TerraStar-L and TerraStar-C subscriptions will be available this summer through AGCO dealers. Contact your local dealer for more information.
