HIAWATHA, KS, May 7, 2013 /CNW/ - (TSX: HEM) -- With an ever increasing global demand for high-accuracy autosteer
systems, AgJunction has put satellite-assisted steering within reach of
an even broader range of growers worldwide with its recent introduction
of the new Outback STX™ Guidance System.
Designed as a value-based RTK precision farming solution, the Outback
STX incorporates some of the industry's best innovation into a
competitively priced and simple to use system.
The STX is a compact terminal with a high definition 7" display
providing full GNSS scalability. Starting from an L1 WAAS solution with
options for both OmniSTAR® as well as Dual Frequency RTK when used with
any of Outback's current base stations, the STX comes ready for use
with any of the current Outback steering systems including eDriveX™
STX also provides the option to utilize the GLONASS constellation to
increase overall GNSS performance through robust signal maintenance in
areas of difficult coverage.
"The Outback STX integrates full RTK capability in an autosteer-ready
terminal compatible with the full line of field-proven Outback
Autosteer Systems," says John Lueger, AgJunction Director of Product
Management. "This includes eDriveX, with the eTurns, eDriveTC™, and the
Outback eDrive VSI™ electric steering interface."
Similar to Outback MAX, the STX is being introduced in three
configuration options, WAAS, OmniSTAR®, or RTK, allowing producers to
upgrade their autosteer capabilities to a level that fits both their
budget and field-level accuracy needs.
The Outback STX is available now through Outback Guidance Centers and
through AgJunction distributors worldwide. Also, contact Outback
