Saving Guidance Patterns for Future Use
AB Lines, Pivots, Identical Curves and Adaptive Curves can be set and saved for use in specific fields. These lines can then be recalled in future when performing another application job in the same field.
Creating and saving these lines can ONLY be done while the vehicle is on the field and a Boundary file or Job file has been created. The only exception to this is the manual entry of A and B point coordinates.
Creating an AB line can be done in either one of two ways. You can either select an A and a B point while you are on your field and your GPS is active or you can can enter the coordinates of the A and B points manually. This is done by creating a new AB line file and selecting item 13 on figure 6-19. You will then be taken to a screen similar to as shown in figure 6-20.
Follow the instructions on page 6-16 to manually enter A and B point coordinates.
In Coverage Triggered mode, the guidance path begins to be drawn when coverage mapping is turned on. The end point of the guidance path is defined when coverage mapping is turned off.
This means that the guidance path will only be tracked when coverage mapping is on. When coverage mapping is turned off and on again, this initiates the tracking of a new guidance path.
This mode is particularly useful when used with Auto Section Control.
Manual End Of Row
In Manual End of Row mode, the beginning of the guidance path is defined when an A point is set and the end of the guidance path is defined when a B point is set.
This is similar to how AB Lines are set except that the guidance path is tracked based on the actual path of the vehicle and not on the direct distance between the A and B point.
This mode is the preferred choice when performing round and round coverage of a field
U-Turn Recognition mode is the same as Manual End of Row mode with one additional feature. In U-Turn Recognition mode, the console will detect when your vehicle is making a U-Turn and will automatically close the guidance path.
This means that instead of setting the B point to close the guidance path, the System 110/150 will do this automatically when a U-Turn is detected.
U-Turn Recognition mode is the preferred choice when performing row by row coverage of a field.
