This new, low-cost receiver utilizes 32 channels to track signals from GPS, GLONASS, SBAS (satellite-based augmentation system) EGNOS and WAAS (wide area augmentation system), as well as L-band OmniSTAR. The position update rate is 10Hz upgradeable to 20Hz.

Kevin Cobb, director of agriculture product management, said, “The SGR-1 receiver features faster satellite acquisition and simultaneous processing of GPS and GLONASS signals. This receiver technology is perfect for highly accurate pass-to-pass performance in agriculture applications.”

The SGR-1 provides accurate radar speed emulation for improved slow speed seeding and spraying operations and features serial and CANbus communication capabilities. The unit’s compact and rugged design has earned an IP66 water and dust protection rating.
