TeeJet offers guidance over video feature

TeeJet Technologies introduces the only system available offering guidance and live video to be displayed simultaneously, which helps improve accuracy and efficiency in field operations.

Matrix Guidance System with RealView Guidance Over Video is an affordable system that allows growers to monitor what’s ahead, or difficult to see machine parts or operations while at the same time viewing guidance information.

“The Matrix Guidance System offers growers exclusive features at an unbeatable price,” said Rich Gould, vice-president and guidance business manager at TeeJet Technologies. “By combining guidance with live video instead of a virtual image, the operator now has access to more and better information to help make GPS guidance more intuitive to use.”

Matrix not only has the benefit of guidance over video, it can also be economically upgraded with automatic boom section control for use with sprayers and spreaders. Automatic boom section control helps minimize costly chemical consumption by automatically switching off sprayer boom sections when they enter a previously applied area.

Matrix is the interface for the FieldPilot Assisted Steering System from TeeJet Technologies. Assisted steering helps improve accuracy, decrease input costs and reduce driver fatigue and stress. All of these benefits can improve operation productivity.

FieldPilot with Matrix Guidance can also easily be installed on older tractors. “There is a perception out there that you have to have a newer tractor to take advantage of precision ag benefits,” Gould said. “We have more than 65 custom installation kits for 275 different vehicles, new and old. It’s a great way for growers to add assisted steering capabilities without a costly investment.”

Additional Matrix features include:

• Console screen comes in two sizes — 5.7″ (570G model) and 8.4″ (840G model) — with options for four or eight cameras.

• Touch-screen control for easy operation.

• High-resolution, bright screen viewable under tough lighting conditions.

• Built-in lightbar for full-time guidance no matter what is on display.

• Split-screen, four-camera view on 840G
