Patchwork has developed a cutting-edge range of products that delivers efficiency benefits for farmers, contractors and service providers. This well-established BlackBox GPS system offers multiple 3D guidance modes and the software is updateable via the Patchwork website. The system offers a bright 7" HD touch screen, using Egnos/WAAS for correction along with built-in terrain compensation, giving accuracy to within 20cm.
The Evolution features all the capabilities of the BlackBox with the addition of Assisted Steering which uses a powerful motor system delivering the turning power needed to control the most demanding agricultural vehicles. The Auto Steering interface supports both CAN & Steer Ready Vehicles, now providing a complete product range. For enhanced performance the BlackBox Evolution can be upgraded to OmniSTAR or RTK correction signals.
Cost effective Section Control when integrated with the BlackBox can be used to govern up to 12 sections. Automatically shutting off to eradicate overlap, the result is a considerable reduction in cost, thanks to reduced material input, as well as environmental improvements, since the risk of chemicals reaching 'no spray zones' is significantly reduced.
WebTrack, our pioneering web-based agricultural software is designed for safe storage of all types of GPS field data, to enable any agricultural business to provide evidence of field work. WebTrack is essential during an inspection for SFP, NVZ or other compliance scheme. The records are searchable to allow quick and easy access to all historical records and can overlay any recorded job on top of the latest Google Map to show it in context.
Used alone or in conjunction with Patchwork's other products, the BlackBox system enables you to apply high specification technology to standard agricultural practices. The result is significant productivity gains for all its applications.
