Satellite positioning and navigation
Wherever applications are required for which there are no other markers in the field, tracking via satellite navigation (GNSS) in various accuracies is ideal. In addition, position detection is required for many applications in modern agriculture. The vehicle needs this information for automatic steering or site-specific cultivation of the land. If the very first operation is carried out using highly accurate RTK correction data, it is often possible to use it to carry out all subsequent operations as well. Combination with sensor technology is also possible.
RGS 200 – reliable GNSS receiver
RGS 200 by Reichhardt is a GNSS receiver for a track-to-track accuracy of +/- 30 cm. The compact design and the attractive price/performance ratio are ideal for Smart Farming applications, such as automatic section control. The appropriate connection cable is already included in the scope of services. Ideal for use in combination with the ISO-VT T50i. The RGS 200 receiver is characterized by a high level of reliability thanks to the use of all common satellite systems.
Three options to choose from
SONIC – Proven in row crops
The sensors inside the housing can be aligned to the requirements in the crop without the need for tools: parallel, to orient themselves to a crop edge or crosswise, to optimally target tramlines or plant rows. They are suitable for use as a vehicle steering system, but they are particularly well suited for use on the implement or in conjunction with a shifting frame for implement control. Mechanical weed control takes on a whole new meaning again
SONIC 200 – Improved in closed stocks
In closed stocks, especially in advanced growth stages, leaf deflectors have proven their worth for reliable tracking detection. Supplemented by an adjustable sensor mount, SONIC 200 now scores very well right from the start. Automatic steering of the implement is also the preferred application here.
Awarded in special crops
While automatic steering systems have long been established in arable farming, implements in orchards and vineyards often seem too specialized for smart retrofits. Equipped with the right sensor technology, the universal, ISOBUS-compatible PSR ISO automatic steering system by Reichhardt is an ideal tool for more sustainable success, because the use of satellite signals (GNSS) and sensor technology in just one system brings application advantages even in special crops.
Different growth stages, cutting shapes and vine row widths or row spacing, as well as the need for extremely low speeds, illustrate the flexibility needed and delivered. As a winemaker or fruit grower, you can be sure that vines protruding into the row or gaps in the foliage wall will not affect tracking or work quality.
Steering wheel motors take over the steering wheel as assistants by converting the electric steering impulses into a turning movement of the steering wheel. There is no intervention in the steering hydraulics of the vehicle. Steering assistants are particularly suitable for vehicles that are not used frequently, but where the advantages and comfort of an automatic steering system should not be dispensed with. They can also be used as a changeover system.
Reichhardt offers two proven options for this purpose:
Accurate and universal
The PSR SLIDE enables mechanical weed control where the accuracy for use was previously lacking. As a result, and through the targeted use of chemical maintenance measures where they are unavoidable, the use of the PSR SLIDE saves expensive operating materials and makes an important contribution to environmental protection.
PSR SLIDE RTK
Satellite-based implement guidance is the option when repeatable accuracy is to be available from the beginning and throughout the growing season for all subsequent operations. This is the case when crops are to be planted for many years, e.g. asparagus and strawberries or also dams for potatoes and carrots. If sowing is already done with maximum accuracy even in sloping terrain, hoeing operations can be done before emergence.
PSR SLIDE SONIC
The ultrasonic sensors on the Reichhardt shifting frame or directly on the implement detect the current crop extremely gently. Existing plant rows and ridges thus become reference points to which the automatic steering for the attachment is oriented with very high accuracy. This makes it possible to work on plants and irrigation hoses with centimeter precision.
With the new SONIC 200 sensors, you get a height-adjustable sensor mount and plant-repellent sensor cover that reliably follows its path in the row with the highest precision, even in higher and already closed stocks.
