Leica Geosystems has released the new features for the AS7500 section controller. The most significant feature enables the user to record field inclusion boundaries and exclusion zones. These boundaries and zones can be utilised to control the auto section shutoff to include or exclude designated areas such as entire fields or waterways.
The AS7500 section control compatibility has been expanded with support added to allow interface to the Amazone Amatron+ controller. This feature will be included as standard with the AS7500 at no charge as with all other section control interfaces. A dedicated interface cable and installation manual will become available for sale as of the July 30, 2011 to allow simple plug and play installations.
All new AS7500 purchases from July 1, 2011 will be equipped with these new features. Leica Geosystems encourages individuals who would like to purchase the updated AS7500 to contact their Leica Geosystems dealer directly.
