AMS RADIOS

StarFire RTK 450 Radio: The StarFire 450 RTK Radio is designed to be used in areas with challenging terrain and/or dense foliage conditions to increase signal coverage and maintain RTK accuracy where the StarFire 900 RTK Radio signal strength is not sufficient.


The 450 is needed to obtain RTK accuracy and is paired with a StarFire iTC Receiver and can be used on a base station or vehicle.

StarFire RTK 900 Radio: The StarFire 900 RTK Radio is designed to be used in areas with flat or rolling terrain with minimal foliage. The StarFire 900 RTK Radio base station can be set up anywhere as a mobile or permanent base station as it does not require a license from the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

The StarFire 900 RTK Radio is needed to obtain RTK accuracy and is paired with an Original StarFire, StarFire iTC, or StarFire 3000 Receiver and can be used on a base station or vehicle.

AMS RECEIVERS 

StarFire™ 6000 Receiver: The StarFire 6000 is our new generation receiver, uniting leading edge receiver technology and yet again defining a new standard of ultimate accuracy and signal stability.

The StarFire 6000 works seamlessly with all accuracy levels and John Deere guidance systems. Second to none the StarFire 6000 inherited the field proven Terrain Compensation Module (TCM) to automatically compensate roll, pitch and yaw of the vehicle, while GLONASS compatibility remains in base. SF1 accuracy has further improved, being far superior to EGNOS and continues to be free of charge.

Introducing “Triple StarFire Accuracy”, the new SF3 correction signal with “In-Season-Repeatability” and up to four times quicker pull-in time, as well as further enhanced RTK solutions such as 14-days of “RTK Extend”, the StarFire 6000 receiver already today is ready to compete with the future.

Last but not least, to provide you peace of mind, the StarFire 6000 is now also available with a locking device.

StarFire™ 3000 Receiver: The StarFire™ 3000 is a 66-channel, multi-frequency differential Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receiver. Standard features on the StarFire 3000 Receiver include: access to satellite signals from both the GPS and GLONASS satellites for SF1, SF2, or RTK correction level, true 3-D integrated terrain compensation, and upgradable accuracy.


These features allow the StarFire 3000 Receiver to provide more reliable positioning in areas with intermittent satellite availability or in other uncontrollable satellite environments. The StarFire 3000 also responds faster and more accurately to changes in terrain. The level of accuracy can be increased on the StarFire 3000 without having to purchase a new receiver.

StarFire iTC StarFire iTC: The StarFire iTC is a dual-band GPS receiver providing scalable accuracy and integrated terrain compensation. Effective 25 June 2010, the StarFire iTC is no longer available. It has been replaced by the StarFire 3000.

StarFire 300 StarFire 300: StarFire 300 is a WAAS-enabled GPS receiver with 13-in. pass-to-pass accuracy. It is a great fit for Parallel Tracking™ or documentation purposes, such as Field Doc™ or Harvest Doc™.


AMS DISPLAYS

Original GreenStar Display: This display was the original GreenStar unit produced by John Deere. It delivered its content in black and white, with a user friendly push-button interface and menu-driven commands. This allowed a user to input information, and view on-the-go operational data, such as parallel tracking, moisture sampling, and yield monitoring.

After its introduction in 1989 in select CTS combines, many John Deere machines and implements came with a GreenStar Display. To add AMS applications, a Mobile Processor, KeyCard and StarFire iTC™ are required.

The GreenStar 2 2600: The GreenStar™ 2(GS2) 2600 is a 10.4-in. color touch-screen display. It features a proven full-color screen that allows the operator to configure and simultaneously view multiple applications on any home page. Additionally, the GreenStar displays offer many different mounting options depending on preference and/or cab type.

The GS2 2600 is only compatible on the C-post of 9030 Series MST tractors.

The GreenStar 2 1800 Display: The GreenStar 2 (GS2) 1800 is a 7-in. color display. It features state-of-the-art, full-color screens that allow the operator to configure multiple home pages and quickly toggle through them to monitor many applications that may be running at the same time. The integrated display control features a scroll wheel and 14 buttons.

GreenStar 3 2630 Display: The John Deere GreenStar™ 3 (GS3) 2630 Display is a 10.4-in. color display that features a full-color touch screen for controlling a variety of AMS applications, vehicles, and implements. The GS3 2630 also allows operators to set up multiple home pages and navigate to each home page easily and efficiently, all while other applications are in use. The GS3 2630 is specifically designed for customers who desire maximum efficiency, productivity, and premium features.


GreenStar 3 Command Center: The GreenStar 3 (GS3) Command Center is the central information system used on all new R Series tractors and S Series combines. It is located on the end of the CommandARM™ or on the right-hand console. The GS3 Command Center allows the operator to program various settings and tailor the readings to a specific operation as it is displayed on a 178-mm (7-in.) color display is divided into three regions: left hand, center, and right hand.

The left-hand region can be configured by the operator to monitor three tractor functions of their choice. The right-hand region shows the shortcut keys to desired information. Operators can program additional shortcut keys that appear in the right-hand region. The center region either shows the main home pages or displays the information relative to the current settings the operator is adjusting.
