New Leica mojoXact and additional product features for the Leica mojo3D and Leica SteerDirect are now available
7 November 2011
(Heerbrugg/Brisbane, 7 November 2011) - Leica Geosystems today released the Leica mojoXact, the new high accuracy upgrade option for the Leica mojo3D guidance display, as well as further features for the Leica mojo3D and Leica SteerDirect. The new features include an improved look and feel, better product usability, more accuracy options and an increased coverage of Leica SteerDirect vehicle support.
The latest RTK upgrade option for the Leica mojo3D has been designed around accuracy and ease of use. It allows users to install the product in any orientation inside the tractor cab. Integration to the Leica mojo3D and configuration only takes a few minutes. The robust product comes with class leading GNSS and inertial positioning technology for continuous precision and offers additional steering solutions like Leica SteerDirect CAN, Steer Ready Kit (SRK) and Hydraulic for further improvements to accuracy. With a steering update rate at 20Hz, twice as fast as the industry standard, the Leica SteerDirect steering solution enables exceptional steering performance at all speeds.
"The Leica mojoXact enables farmers to utilize the additional availability provided by GLONASS at no additional cost and also provides peace of mind that the system will be able to use future GNSS constellations," said Peter Roberts, Global R&D Manager.
The guidance display has undertaken improvements to reform the look and feel of the menu and to further increase the usability. Users are now able to save and recall vehicle setups (valid for vehicles, implements and sections) and to replay any saved guidance pattern. Operating the Leica mojo3D with the Leica mojoXact and a hydraulic kit now offers stationary and reverse auto-steer engage for selected vehicle configurations. In addition network DGPS is now available providing an accuracy improvement where a corrected position is required.
Updates to the Leica SteerDirect hydraulic solution proceed with three more kits covering an additional range of vehicles:
- Hydraulic Hose Kit - Claas Arion (Article Nr. 79320)
- Hydraulic Hose Kit - Claas Axion (Article Nr. 793196)
- Claas Axion Supplementary Hydraulic Kit (Bracket & Fastners) (Article Nr. 791250)
- Hydraulic Hose Kit - Miller Condor (Article Nr. 791247)
Further expansions of the Leica SteerDirect Steer Ready Kits (SRK) now support all AutoTracTM Ready front wheel assist John Deere tractors with a wheel angle sensor, which complete the Leica SteerDirect SRK coverage of all of the John Deere AutoTracTM Ready front wheel assist tractors:
- SRK to suit JD AutoTracTM Ready King Pin WAS (Article Nr. 6006530)
- SRK to suit JD AutoTracTM Ready Flow Sensor (Article Nr. 6004701)
Leica Geosystems displays its agriculture solutions at the worldwide meeting point for the agricultural sector - the Agritechnica show - from 15th to 19th November 2011 in Hanover/Germany at Hall 16, Booth B16.
More features for the Leica mojo3D and the Leica mojoMINI are planned for beginning of 2012.
