Che cos'è?


Il Farmnavigator Autosteering System è un sistema  per la sterzata assistita, che aiuta a seguire con grande precisione le linee guida impostate su Farmnavigator. Con questo sistema, si può passare dalle indicazioni della "barra luminosa" di Farmnavigator alla guida automatica. Questo significa che l'operatore può concentrarsi sul controllo dell'attrezzo senza doversi preoccupare di manovrare anche lo sterzo, migliorando la qualità del lavoro e la resa. Molto utile in condizioni di scarsa visibilità, in caso di nebbia o ambienti polverosi.

Il sistema è compatto, non occupa lo spazio a disposizione per le gambe,  e permette di utilizzare agevolmente lo sterzo manuale: è sufficiente riprendere il volante con fermezza per disinnestarlo;  altrettanto facilmente si può innestare semplicemente toccando lo schermo di Farmnavigator.

Il sistema di guida automatica Farmnavigator consente di utilizzare tutta la larghezza dell'attrezzo, riducendo le sovrapposizioni e velocizza la manovra di sterzata nelle zone di fine campo.
Il risultato è un risparmio di tempo e denaro: si risparmia infatti carburante ma anche semi e fertilizzanti.Tale sistema permette un miglioramento qualitativo e quantitativo del raccolto e quindi un incremento del ritorno sull'investimento.
 

The System consists in:

  

Farmnavigator C-Box

The connections hub

G7 Farmnavigator

The display of the system

 

Farmnavigator ECU

 It converts information from the Farmnavigator
to actual steering commands.

 

Farmnavigator MDU

The Mechanical drive Unit.

MDU easy installation

The MDU mounts on existing steering wheel without requiring its removal thanks to the Patented universal ring gear. The MDU simply clamps on and off for fast and easy transfer across vehicles of different brands and types (tractors, sprayers, spreaders or combines).

 

• High torque gear for the most demanding vehicles

• High speed response to quickly get the vehicle on-line

• WAAS / EGNOS level pass to pass accuracy

Farmnavigator ECU: the compact and versatile steering controller

The Farmnavigator ECU houses the compass, gyro and accelerometers used to detect orientation and movement of vehicle. It receives corrected GPS data from the external receiver, and converts information from the Farmnavigator to actual steering commands.

 

• Compatible with any GNSS smart antenna. It supports GPS, Glonass, Galileo and Beidou constellations

• Centimeter level accuracy when used with an RTK correction signal

• Supports all vehicle interface types: Mechanical, ISO/CAN, Hydraulic and Factory steer ready.

• Custom install kits are available from Novariant to simplify installation for over 750 models of agricultural machines.

• 9-axis inertial sensor to provide enhanced terrain compensation

• Programming and maintenance over WiFi

• Automatic setup and calibration

Compatible with Automatic Section Control Extension

Combine the Auto-Steering System with the Farmnavigator Automatic Section Control extension to optimize your work!

The Automatic Section Control is obtained connecting G7 Farmnavigator to a compatible controller through ethernet cable. G7 Farmnavigator calculates the exact treated area and controls automatically the boom sections (based on the position received by the DGPS antenna) in order to avoid treatment overlaps and risk of crop injuries.
Compatible with  Farmscan Unipod, MC elettornica VT Omnia. 

How to install the system

The receiver (not included) connects to G7 Famnavigator via serial cable. The G7 Farmnavigator connects to the ECU through the C-Box and Ethernet Cable.

Setup Wizard

Easily configure the ECU following the step-by-step wizard on the G7 Farmnavigator display.
