Ag Leader introduces advanced automated steering system

Agriculture.com Staff 11/04/2009 @ 8:00am

Ag Leader Technology, Inc. recently unveiled ParaDyme, a full-featured steering system with integrated wireless and cellular communication capabilities for remote diagnostics. The patented dual-antenna roof module provides operators automatic steering control with sub-inch accuracy, improving product placement and fuel efficiency while significantly reducing operator fatigue.

With the dual-antenna roof module, ParaDyme uses Logic 7D technology to track pitch, roll and yaw as well as vehicle position and heading at all times, even when the vehicle is not moving. This feature provides operators with very precise vehicle steering performance. The dual-antenna system also makes rapid line acquisition possible in forward or reverse.

"We're happy to introduce a steering system with unmatched accuracy and repeatability. This is a new direction for Ag Leader, and I'm confident our customers will be pleased with the quality and performance of the ParaDyme system," says Al Myers, Ag Leader President. "The ParaDyme dual-antenna approach eliminates the need for a vehicle wheel-angle sensor to achieve RTK accuracy. This simplifies system installation immensely for both dealers and customers."
