Introducing Leica GeoAce - The new RTK base station for Agriculture
18 July 2012
(Brisbane/Heerbrugg, 18 July 2012) - Today Leica Geosystems announces the new Leica GeoAce RTK base station. The product provides access to Leica Geosystems patented Virtual Wrench™, the Agriculture industry’s first web based remote service, support and diagnostics tool. With the market’s demand for telematics and remote connectivity the Leica GeoAce was developed to support these requirements.
The Leica GeoAce’s compatibility with a large range of RTK and DGPS products allows it to work with existing and new equipment such as, the Leica mojo3D equipped with the Leica mojoXact or the Leica mojoRTK console. Along with the intuitive user interface and the simple menu structure, the RTK base station delivers seamless integration to your new and existing equipment in the field.
The survey quality product was created for the Agriculture market and supports the open format RTCM 3.x standard which is compatible with Leica Geosystems products and third party farming equipment. Additionally the Leica GeoAce supports the closed format CMR and the Leica mojo1 for early generation Leica Geosystems products. The RTK base station transmits these formats through the interchangeable radios including license free 868MHz or a 900MHz. Further support for an external radio is also available or the internal cell modem can be used to transmit reference data over the internet.
“The Leica GeoAce completes the Leica mojoXact by supporting industry standard correction formats and user friendly functions. The addition of Virtual Wrench™ provides peace of mind for the end user which in today’s market is fundamental” said Derek Walsh, General Manager of Leica Geosystems Agriculture.
“At Leica Geosystems we believe it’s essential to remain in touch with the needs of the market and are constantly enhancing and adjusting our product range to achieve this”, he said.
