Not every farm or farming application requires pinpoint sub-inch accuracy.
Case IH lets you decide the level of accuracy that fits the way you farm and your operation’s goals. Whether you need a high, medium or low level of precision, we can help you select the best option.
Sub-inch accuracy is ideal for strip-till or for maintaining consistent wheel traffic across fields season after season, year after year. In many applications, such as seeding or harvesting cereal grains, spreading dry fertilizer or tillage, 3- to 5-inch (medium) accuracy provides an appropriate level of overlap management. When accuracy and repeatability aren’t the driving factors for adding precision technology to your farming operation, low accuracy options effectively meet your needs.
Pass-to-pass accuracy measures the relative accuracy over a 15-minute interval. This is usually thought of as guess row error when driving rows, or as skip/overlap from one pass to the next when driving swaths. A Case IH GPS receiver with pass-to-pass accuracy of +/- four inches means you get less than four inches skip or overlap, 95% of the time.
Year-to-year accuracy is the measure of repeatable accuracy that you can drive the same rows a day, week, month, or year later. So, +/- one inch year-to-year accuracy means you can drive the same rows next year within one inch of this year’s rows, 95% of the time.
AFS 372 Receiver
Accurate data gathering, mapping and autoguidance can improve productivity and agronomic performance, and increase overall efficiency year-round. Case IH receivers and related components help you implement AFS technology across all your equipment and all.
The AFS 372 is a GPS/GLONASS receiver capable of a wide range of accuracy levels, including sub-inch repeatability year over year. The 372 receiver utilizes WAAS as a standard no-charge correction while RangePoint RTX, OmniSTAR, CenterPoint RTX, CenterPoint VRS and CenterPoint RTK correction signals are all available with additional upgrades.
AFS AccuStar provides an economical GNSS solution for producers of all sizes and vintages of equipment. The receiver pairs perfectly with ElectriSteer to add assisted steering to your Case IH or competitive vehicle. AFS AccuStar is compatible with the AFS Pro 300 or AFS Pro 700 display and can utilize the latest correction types, AFS1 and AFS2
The AccuStar receiver provides access to multiple guidance-correction sources ranging from low to medium to high accuracy. This flexibility offers the ability to upgrade to RTK-level guidance with Case IH RTK+ for sub-inch pass-to-pass accuracy.
