What is the most striking detail of your system?
Hexagon’s Auto Steering hardware and software are fully developed in house, enabling a seamless steering control and integration with the nertial navigation system and satellite positioning.

How is it fitted?
Hexagon’s Electric Auto Steering installation typically takes four hours to complete and requires a more skilled technician for aesthetic matters than for mechanical ones. It involves replacing the steering wheel and attaching an ECU to the cabin, no Wheel Angle Sensor required.

The installation of the Hydraulic Auto Steering and tracked tractors requires a more specific technical service when compared to the electric model. Typically, this type of installation takes six hours to complete. The assembly of a hydraulic auto steering requires a modification to the tractor’s original hydraulic circuit, which is the most laborious task.

As for steer-ready, it requires a compatible tractor and connection to the CANbus, extra sensors will depend on the steering valve model.

Can it be fitted on pre-installed or factory fitted vehicle components?
The hydraulic system can. It is also possible to connect our system to tractors that have an electronic hydrostatic steering valve.

Can you take the system to another vehicle?
It is very easy to change the electrical equipment to another tractor as long as some basic items are installed in the other vehicle. These items are provided in an additional parts kit. To change the hydraulic system from one vehicle to another, it is necessary to have the hydraulic, mechanical components, cables and the control module installed in both vehicles.

What happens if satellite or correction signals lack or fail?
The GNSS receiver can keep us operating for some time in case of correction signal lacks. We can’t operate without a GNSS signal.

What patterns are available?
Straight, curved, pivot, adaptive and custom shapefile.

How often and at what costs is the software updated?
2 to 3 times per year. Software update is for free, and you can download from our web page.

Which licenses/unlocks are available and at what costs?
GNSS Standard include GPS and GLONASS. TerraStar-C PRO and RTK are available, including multiple constellations tracking, such as Galileo, BeiDou, QZSS and NavIC.

ISOBUS available: TC: € 450, UT € 450UT+TC: € 650.
