02/01/2013 @ 3:13pm

The AGI-4, from Topcon Precision Agriculture, is the industry’s first completely integrated steering solution that can simply and easily interface with many manufacturer’s virtual terminals.

This solution features multiple-constellation GNSS satellite reception, state-of-the-art inertial sensors for full terrain compensation, plus Topcon’s industry-leading line acquisition and on-line steering functionality.

“The AGI-4 is an industry first in all-in-one integrated receiver/steering controllers,” says Kevin Cobb, Topcon Precision Agriculture director of product management.

The AGI-4’s modular design includes “antenna, multi-constellation GNSS satellite receiver and steering controller, with optional high-accuracy inertial sensors snap-in module offering unmatched upgradeability,” he notes.

AGI-4 comes standard with WAAS and EGNOS steering functionality and an RTK communication module is also an option. “AGI-4 is easily upgradeable to 2cm accuracy with RTK radio options,” adds Cobb.

NTRIP capability allows a user to tap into existing reference networks via mobile phone connection (depends on local availability) and uses existing data plans and infrastructure to minimize costs.
