|Midwest Technologies recently introduced CenterLine® 220, a versatile and simple GPS guidance system for any field operation.
CenterLine 220 features two modes of operation - straight-line (parallel) and curved AB. The unit’s large graphical display shows off-track direction and distance along with swath number, ground speed, selected guidance mode and whether a return point has been stored. An alternate map page shows a bird’s-eye view of the vehicle position and heading in relation to the desired path.
In addition, CenterLine 220 is compact and designed for easy portability from vehicle to vehicle. Operational as soon as it is connected to a power source, CenterLine 220 is easy to use. Set-up is accomplished in just a few seconds. The CenterLine 220 features a high quality internal WAAS compatible GPS receiver, with 5 Hz position update, in a durable housing with a sealed rubber keypad. A small external GPS antenna connects to the unit and is mounted on the vehicle roof. Additionally, the unit provides a GPS-derived vehicle speed as a RADAR compatible ground speed signal for use with other control systems.
