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™ with eTurns™.
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 Guidance customer service or visit the Outback Guidance STX product page for more information:
