DECATUR, IL, Aug. 28 /CNW/ - (TSX: HEM) Today from the Farm Progress Show
in Decatur, Illinois Hemisphere GPS announced the latest addition to the
Outback Guidance product line, Outback AutoMate(TM). Outback AutoMate is an
automatic boom shutoff product that works directly with Outback Guidance
products, such as Outback S2(TM) and the new Outback S-Lite(TM).
Featuring Raven Industries' controller technology, Outback AutoMate
monitors and controls individual sprayer sections to minimize overlaps and
skips. It offers up to seven section automatic control, manual section
control, and user adjustable section overlap. Machine and rate controller
specific interface kits will be available for a wide variety of vehicles and
"Automated boom section control is an exciting new innovation which
compliments our Outback Guidance product line," said Steven Koles, President
and CEO of Hemisphere GPS. "Given the increased cost of herbicide and
fertilizer, the operator should realize a quick return on investment with
Outback AutoMate." Hemisphere GPS will begin shipping Outback AutoMate in
October 2007, starting at only $1,895 for compatibility with a Raven 440/450.
It will be available through Outback Guidance Centers, other distributors in
North America, and through Hemisphere GPS distributors worldwide. Please visit
Hemisphere GPS at the Varied Industries Tent at the Farm Progress Show, today
through August 30th in Decatur, Illinois. The latest Outback Guidance products
will be on display, and information will be available on products that are
soon to be released.
