GPS Steering and Yield Mapping Platforms
The satellite-based GPS Steering on the LEXION combine harvester uses global positioning to guide the machine automatically through the field with accuracy down to the inch. Gone are the days of overlapping in the field. The LEXION offers an open architecture structure for select third-party precision farming technology providers. Farmers are able to choose between the popular Ag Leader and Trimble GPS steering solutions. Both steering systems operate the CLAAS AUTO PILOT valve, which can be activated via the AUTO PILOT button on the Multi-Function handle.
The CLAAS CANBus system also delivers a data pipeline to the platform for high quality yield and moisture mapping.
