Topcon Precision Agriculture has introduced the new SGR-1 receiver with TruPass advanced positioning technology for even greater pass-to-pass accuracy for farmers.
The new, low-cost receiver uses 32 channels to track signals from GPS, GLONASS, SBAS (satellite-based augmentation system) EGNOS and WAAS (wide area augmentation system), as well as L-band OmniSTAR. The position update rate is 10Hz, and can be upgraded to 20Hz.
The SGR-1 provides accurate radar speed emulation for improved slow speed seeding and spraying operations and features serial and CANbus communication capabilities. It's also protected against water and dust penetration.
