Trimble Unveils GFX-750 Display System
The latest innovation from Trimble, the GFX-750 display, is a simple-to-install, roof-mounted NAV-900 guidance controller that features the company’s most advanced multiconstellation GNSS receiver. The satellite coverage provides farmers with more robust signal availability, which means more active working time, especially in rolling terrain.
The high-resolution, 10.1-inch display is ISOBUS-compatible, a universal communication protocol that Müller-Elektronik (a Trimble company) was a key contributor in developing. This communication protocol allows one display or terminal to control several implements and machines, regardless of manufacturer. It standardizes the control settings, reduces downtime, and minimizes installation and interface challenges, which simplifies data exchange and machine control.
Specific features of the GFX-750 include:
- Flexible connectivity between devices through integrated wireless options including Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and BroadR-Reach high-speed communications.
- Seamless communication from tractor to farm equipment through Field-IQ Basic or ISOBUS control.
- Ability to connect to industry-leading signal corrections including CenterPoint RTK, CenterPoint VRS, Trimble RTX technology, and SBAS through the NAV-900 controller.
- Compatibility with Trimble Autopilot automated guidance systems for both hydraulic and electric installations.
- Interoperability with Trimble Ag Software to support farm management needs across the entire farming operation.
- A triple-frequency multiconstellation GNSS receiver that uses GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and BeiDou satellites together, enabling higher reliability and shorter convergence time. Accessibility and benefits from the full satellite system vary depending on locally-available satellite coverage.
“The GFX-750 display system is the perfect solution for a farmer who is ready to get started with precision farming — or who is interested in upgrading to a new system — due to the easy-to-use interface and roof-mounted guidance controller with embedded GNSS receiver,” says Abe Hughes, general manager of Trimble’s agriculture division. “This integrated system, plus the implement control solutions offered by Müller-Elektronik, continues to deliver on our vision to provide a unified platform that seamlessly connects the hardware and software needs of farmers worldwide. This comprehensive display system can enable farmers to more easily adopt precision agriculture solutions across their farms, regardless of vehicle make, model, or year.”
The system is expected to be available by the end of 2017. Visit agriculture.trimble.com/gfx-750 to learn more.
