PLM Guidance

 

 
GET IN AND AWAY YOU GO
 
A full range of guidance solutions are available from New Holland and include manual and assisted guidance. You can even specify your CR combine with fully integrated IntelliSteer® auto guidance direct from the factory to start saving money from your first run. SmartSteer™ crop edge guidance and automatic row guidance for maize headers are just some of the numerous options which are designed to increase your harvesting efficiency and productivity.
 
FULLY INTERGRATED INTELLISTEER® GUIDANCE
 
All CR combines can be ordered direct from the factory with IntelliSteer®, New Holland’s fully integrated auto guidance package. Fully compatible with the most accurate RTK correction signals, IntelliSteer can guarantee pass-to-pass and year-to-year accuracy as low as 1 - 2cm. The result? Fields which are cleanly harvested, so every grain gets safely stored in the tank.
 
LEVELS OF ACCURACY AND REPEATABILITY
 
New Holland offer six levels of accuracy. This enables you to select the right IntelliSteer® system to match your needs and budget. When using RTK correction with IntelliSteer it is possible to deliver year on year repeatability.
 
INTELLIVIEW IV: VISIBLE INTELLIGENCE
 
The standard IntelliView™ IV monitor can be used to set up the optional New Holland IntelliSteer® auto guidance systems. It enables the programming of a variety of guidance paths, from straight A-B runs to the most complex adaptive curves. You can also personalise your settings and even transfer information from your combine, direct to your precision farming software package.
 
INTEGRATED CONTROL SYSTEMS
 
The New Holland IntelliSteer® system uses built in T3 terrain compensated correction signals to keep the Navigation Controller II informed of the combine’s orientation. An integrated control valve converts the signal from the Navigation Controller II into the hydraulic movements of the steering system.
 
NH 372 RECEIVER
 
The New Holland 372 antenna receives both DGPS and GLONASS signals and is fully compliant with RTK or RTX correction. For RTK applications, a radio is mounted underneath the receiver. The antenna is positioned on the top of the grain tank to improve signal reception and enhance operation.
 
RTK BASE STATION
 
An RTK base station can be used to broadcast a correction signal to achieve a pass to pass accuracy of 1-2cm.
 
SMARTSTEER™ SYSTEM
 
By scanning the edge between the cut and uncut crop with a laser eye, the SmartSteer™ auto guidance system automatically guarantees the header is always full, right to the edge, and allows the operator to concentrate on other combine functions to maintain maximum performance.
 
MAIZE GUIDANCE
 
Maize headers can be specified with automatic row guidance to keep the combine perfectly on course. Two sensors continuously monitor the position of the crop entering the header, and automatically guide the combine to ensure true perpendicular entry even in poor visibility or at high speeds. The system can also be linked to a GPS positioning system, which can distinguish between cut and uncut rows, to facilitate night-time harvesting and advanced harvesting activities such as skip row functionality.
