For growers who seek the basics in assisted steering with the ability to work their way into it should check out the new OnTrac2 and the ParaDyme roof module from AutoFarm.
OnTrac2 gives affordable, easy-to-install, hands-free GPS steering with unmatched portability across vehicle types. Coupled with the new ParaDyme Roof Module, it offers superior assisted steering that can run on WAAS, OmniSTAR, or RTK. With AutoFarm’s RTK ReadyConnect option it can get RTK correction without a base station running on a CORS network.
Operating with any of AutoFarm’s three available touchscreen controllers, OnTrac2 is a cost-effective solution to hands-free steering that eliminates skips and overlaps, lowers fuel consumption, reduces operator stress and fatigue, and expands the seasonal operating window. The system offers pass-to-pass accuracy ranges of 8-10” on WAAS, 3-6” with OmniSTAR and 1-2” with the RTK upgrade.
The ParaDyme System is the industry’s first single system solution to all facets of precision farming: planter control, application control, yield monitoring, data logging and management, plus hands-free GPS steering via WAAS, EGNOS, OmniSTAR HP/XP, and RTK. It is also GLONASS ready. Plus, with its unique factory-integrated wireless, ParaDyme offers a Remote Real-Time Service connection to the dealer in addition to optional RTK ReadyConnect that provides RTK correction without a base station.
The company also recently announced that Paradyme is now installable on virtually all brands of farm machinery, and talked about how the system offers a unique AutoCalibration feature that gets you set up in less than 10 minutes.
