Retrofit GPS steering systems.

Ten good reasons for investing.

A fully automated parallel steering system from CLAAS:

  • Reduces fuel, labour, seed, spray and fertiliser costs
  • Improves the efficiency and productivity of every pass
  • Maximises capacity utilisation and increases service life
  • Reduces stress and strain on the driver
  • Makes optimum use of the machine's full working width
  • Significantly improves work quality
  • Allows consistent work quality around the clock – even at night and in bad weather
  • Can be retrofitted to any hydraulically steered machine
  • Gives the operator more time to optimise implement settings
  • Boosts your profitability

Benefits for the operator.

Nowadays, steering systems are an essential tool used by many drivers in their daily work. Thanks to them, precision to the nearest centimetre is no longer an art. The CLAAS GPS PILOT assists you in the field or on grassland by:

  • Make every track exactly the same as the previous one
  • Make full use of the working width
  • Reduce overlapping
  • Giving you more time to optimise your implement settings

What does a 5% improvement in accuracy mean?

A 5% improvement in accuracy means that with production costs of 700 euros per hectare of wheat, for example, GPS steering can cut your overall costs by 5%, reducing your outlay by as much as 35 euros per hectare. At this rate, your investment often pays for itself in two to three years.

    Correction signals.

    Please note that some variants are not available in every country. Please contact your distributor for further information.

    EGNOS is a service which is available free of charge in Europe. WAAS is a comparable service for North America. Please note that in both systems track lines may shift over time (satellite drift). These systems are not suitable for use in machine fleets (e.g. combine harvesting). The accuracy data given relates to the accuracy of the GPS receiver on the machine under perfect conditions. All data are expressed as maximum values. A distinction is made between pass-to-pass accuracy and absolute accuracy. Pass-to-pass accuracy defines the accuracy of the subsequent pass in 95% of cases within 15 minutes in relation to the reference track. Absolute accuracy indicates the level of accuracy with which a certain position can be found again at a later point in time. The actual accuracy of the overall system may deviate from the abovementioned accuracy data. It depends on various influential factors such as vehicle factors (wheelbase, ballasting, calibration, etc.), attached implements (side pull, configuration, attached front implements, etc.), and field and soil conditions.

    The pricing of the individual services depends upon the region and the provider. In the case of correction data services transmitted via mobile phone networks, availability is dependent on the coverage of the network provider used. CLAAS assumes no liability for circumstances or events beyond its control. These may include, for example, disturbances in the atmosphere/troposphere/ionosphere, breakdowns/disruptions or insufficient availability of satellites within global navigation satellite systems (GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO) and their ground reference stations or of satellites belonging to correction service providers (EGNOS, OMNISTAR, etc.). E-DIF is a patented correction algorithm which uses only standard GPS satellites to calculate a correction factor. E-DIF is therefore available worldwide as an alternative correction system in the basic accuracy segment and, within a few minutes, its accuracy is comparable with that of SBAS services (EGNOS, WAAS, etc.) for pass-to-pass applications.

    Therefore E-DIF should only be used for pass-to-pass tracking. E-DIF is completely unsuitable for driving in blocks or for use in controlled traffic applications or machine fleets (e.g. combine harvesting). It is also impossible to record points for absolute positioning. Shifts in tracks (satellite drift) due to long interruptions in work can be corrected using an update function (setting a reference point).
