VarioGuide track guidance. Because rule of thumb calculations don’t pay off.
Precision to the centimetre. The more precisely you work, the more it pays off. This is what the Fendt VarioGuide automated guidance system already delivered in over 15,000 machines. Using highly accurate satellite technology, your tractor or harvester is able to work to a precision of +/-2 cm, even at night or in poor visibility. The result: Your fleet is optimally utilised, while gaps and overlaps are virtually eliminated and area coverage is increased. This in turn achieves a more economical and therefore efficient utilisation of expensive farm inputs. VarioGuide allows savings of up to ten per cent.
Economy with ease
Fendt VarioGuide therefore means cash savings for farmers and contractors. Precise metering, fewer passes and reduced use of fertilisers and pesticides mean not only lower costs, but also better environmental outcomes. At the same time, operators work under considerably less strain in the field, and results are optimised. As tractors automatically follow the optimal track at all times, operators are able to focus fully on other important matters such as monitoring their implements.
Fendt VarioGuide Contour Assistant and adaptive Curve
In this Video you will learn the new characteristics about the Fendt VarioGuide Contour Assistant and the associated new waylines: “Contour Segment and Single Contour track” type. Additionally, there is adaptive curve, another new wayline type for your VarioGuide system. Through these additional features you can make your work processes more efficient.
Track guidance for all who prefer to stick to their precise targets.
Fendt VarioGuide is the central automatic steering system for the Fendt key vehicle in the Fendt Full Line. When it comes to tractors, the VarioGuide system is available for ProfiPlus and PowerPlus configurations. These include the wheeled tractors from Fendt 500 to 1000 Vario ProfiPlus, and the 900 Vario MT track tractor with the Varioterminal 10.4”. The Fendt 300 Vario ProfiPlus, as well as the PowerPlus models in the 500 Vario to 1000 Vario series are fitted with the VarioGuide steering system and the Varioterminal 7”. The VarioGuide is also available for the Fendt IDEAL combines and C-Series, the Katana forage harvester and the Rogator 600 self-propelled sprayer.
Full screen mode in the Varioterminal 10.4” is extended by some highly useful controls. You can therefore operate the key Fendt VarioGuide functions conveniently at a glance without changing the view. The QuickJump function is available for quickly and directly switching to over operating interfaces.
The Fendt 300 Vario ProfiPlus and the PowerPlus tractors also allow use of the VarioGuide steering system with the Varioterminal 7” on all accuracy levels.
Always on the ball
The new version of the Fendt VarioGuide gives you a choice of two different receiver systems: NovAtel® or Trimble®. Existing Trimble® RTK infrastructures on farms such as NTRIP can continue to be used. The systems support a number of correction signals, depending on the respective receiver, including EGNOS/WAAS, RangePoint™RTX™, CenterPoint RTX™ and NTRIP. If you lose your signal due to terrain issues, VarioGuide uses Trimble®-xFill™ technologyto continue work reliably up to 20 minutes without a correction signal available.
NovAtel or Trimble
With Fendt VarioGuide, you are free to choose from two receivers and numerous correction services via satellite or RTK. Use the low-cost and effective NovAtel receiver or the Trimble receiver with even more options. You have the choice of which terminal to use. The Fendt Varioterminal 7” or 10.4” work perfectly with all suggested receivers and signals.
NovAtel RTK ASSIST™ is available for all VarioGuide RTK NovAtel systems. This provides bridging of up to 20 minutes if the correction signal is lost, helping you to continue working with great precision even without an RTK signal. For all VarioGuide Trimble RTK systems, xFill Premium is also available as a fall-back solution for correction signal loss. While xFill™ bridges up to 20 minutes without correction signal, xFill Premium can extend this timeframe to any length
Installation of the GNSS receiver under the roof hatch: Optimal protection against theft, weather and damage!
Regardless of whether it’s tractors, forage harvesters, combines or self-propelled sprayer - VarioGuide is available for all Fendt key machines.
