Without the use of Active Implement Guidance, drawn implements are susceptible to implement drift caused by varying soil conditions as well as gravity in sidehill applications. John Deere Active Implement Guidance automatically steers the implement to the guidance line by providing GPS receiver position data to the implement steering system, reducing the adverse impact of implement drift.

 

The benefits of John Deere Active Implement Guidance include:

Positively impacts inputs
Optimize inputs with Active Implement Guidance Optimize inputs with Active Implement Guidance

Active Implement Guidance helps optimize the use of inputs by increasing accuracy at the implement and facilitating seamless, repeatable passes throughout the growing season.

 

Active Implement Guidance can help to reduce input costs in a variety of applications. Potato producers and other specialty crop producers that make frequent passes through the field have seen the value of Active Implement Guidance as they precisely plant and care for their crop. Additionally, producers employing strip-till practices are better able to align their seed placement with their fertilizer placement, maximizing the uptake of their valuable nutrients.

High crop quality

#

Maintaining the best crop quality is important in all farming operations, and is made especially difficult in cropping practices that require multiple passes through the field. Each pass during the production cycle puts the crop at risk. With Active Implement Guidance, producers no longer have to worry about the emerged crop, as both the tractor and implement are operating on the A-B line.

 

A risk is also minimized when seed is planted with Active Implement Guidance. The improved precision of seed placement provides a straighter path for subsequent passes throughout the season. Compaction and crop disturbance are also reduced as Active Implement Guidance achieves its precision by keeping the implement and tractor on the same guidance path.

 

At the end of the season, the results are better crop quality and improved yield, a value all producers can appreciate.

Industry-exclusive fingertip controls
Manual implement control from the selective control valve (SCV) Manual implement control from the selective control valve (SCV)

Active Implement Guidance requires an implement steering mechanism. This is common with any active implement supplier on the market. The method of controlling the mechanism can only be found from John Deere.

John Deere controls the implement steering device through the tractor's SCV. This industry-exclusive technology allows operators to engage and disengage Active Implement Guidance quickly and easily.

Operators appreciate this when turning in fields with limited headland space. Simply disengage Active Implement Guidance and manually straighten out the implement after a turn by feathering the SCV lever.

Many minutes are saved, even with the most experienced operators, by eliminating the process of backing up after turns to align implements. The time an operator spent getting frustrated turning large implements can now be spent enjoying planting.

The fingertip controls also provide ease when parking implements in tight places or pulling through narrow spaces.

Fingertip control is available for

  • John Deere
    • Large-Frame 7X30 and 7R Series Tractors
    • 8XXX  and 8R Series Tractors
    • 9XXX and 9R Series Tractors

Other tractors are compatible with John Deere Active Implement Guidance with the use of an external SCV.

External valve External valve

Active Implement Guidance is available for all other John Deere and non-John Deere tractors with the addition of an external SCV valve and SCV switch. Both can be ordered from a John Deere dealer. The tractor can have an open or a closed-center hydraulic system.

Reduces operator fatigue

#

AutoTrac™ assisted steering system paired with Active Implement Guidance allows operators to be more productive as they focus on tasks other than steering while traveling down the field.

 

When operators have to spend their entire workday manually steering a machine while watching for obstacles and checking to make sure the implement is operating as expected, they tend to get worn out.

 

Using AutoTrac and Active Implement Guidance together greatly reduces the strain on the operator because the system accurately guides the implement down the most optimum pass, accurately placing inputs, such as seed or fertilizer, in the field.

 

Other benefits to the operator:

  • The implement can be monitored more closely to see if parts are wearing out or failing, allowing the operator to be proactive rather than reactive.
  • A watchful eye can look for damaging obstacles in the field such as rocks, washouts, or holes caused by broken tile lines.
  • An industry exclusive to John Deere, fingertip controls allow operators to turn the implement steering mechanism manually in tight spaces.

All of these benefits result in more uptime for the equipment and an operator who is more alert throughout the day, a benefit everyone can appreciate.

Shared signal improves performance and lowers investment cost for precision agriculture systems

Shared signal provides the functionality when pairing two receivers with AutoTrac™ Implement Guidance, Active Implement Guidance™,  Machine Sync combine harvest automation, or AutoPath™ software via the GreenStar™ 3 2630 Display, Generation 4 4600 CommandCenter™, or 4640 Universal Display. Shared signal allows correction signals to be communicated between a pair of receivers, improving relative system accuracy and reducing the initial investment required to use AutoTrac Implement Guidance, Active Implement Guidance,  Machine Sync combine harvest automation, or AutoPath.

  • NOTE: When using shared signal, the leader must have the higher correction level.
    • In an AutoPath application, shared signal uses the correction level of the leader.
    • In a Machine Sync application, shared signal uses the correction level of the leader.

Supported configurations
All StarFire 3000, StarFire 6000, and StarFire 7000 Receivers are compatible with shared signal and can be used interchangeably.

  • The system uses the correction level of the leader. It is important to place the receiver with the highest correction level on the leader.

NOTE: StarFire 3000 Receivers must be updated to 20-2 (2.80S), and StarFire 6000 Receivers must be updated to 20-2 (4.40N). Once both leader and follower are updated to this software, there are no configuration limitations on leader/follower setup between receiver models.

  • Leader: the tractor receiver for AutoTrac Implement Guidance, AutoPath, and Active Implement Guidance, or the combine or harvest operation (pull-type harvester) receiver for Machine Sync combine harvest automation.
    • The leader’s correction level determines the correction level of the follower.
    • For highest accuracy or for implement guidance applications, the leader must have the higher correction signal.
  • Follower: the implement receiver for AutoTrac Implement Guidance and Active Implement Guidance, or the grain cart tractor receiver for Machine Sync combine harvest automation.
    • The follower may have the lower correction level, but the overall system accuracy matches the accuracy of the leader.
AutoTrac Implement Guidance and Active Implement Guidance

Shared signal enables StarFire receivers to share information when paired using implement guidance. This allows a StarFire receiver using a lower accuracy to be used on the implement for an implement guidance system and take advantage of the higher accuracy used by the machine receiver.

ISOBUS implements

Generation 4 displays support two Agricultural Industry Electronics Foundation (AEF) certified ISOBUS control units. The use of two ISOBUS control units is limited to the configuration of one front and one rear implement. The use of multiple ISOBUS control units as rear implements is not supported. Generation 4 displays support AEF-certified ISOBUS implements with Task Controller Section Control (TC-SC) functionality and AEF certification for TC-SC include sprayers, fertilizer spreaders, planters, seeders, manure applicators, etc. For third-party FMIS compatibility, reference the John Deere Operations Center.

A software update performed by an authorized ISOBUS implement dealer may be required to obtain compatible software. ISOBUS implements must be certified through the Agricultural Industry Electronics Foundation (AEF) to be recognized by the Generation 4 CommandCenter Display. Visit www.aef-online.org for more information; visit www.aef-isobus-database.org for an active list of compatible implements.

ISOBUS implements with VT4 are now supported by Generation 4 displays. Generation 4 displays still support older VT versions (example: VT2 and VT3). If an implement is not loading after updating to Generation 4 software update 2017-2 (or newer on 4600 CommandCenter v2 processors), it is recommended that the implement manufacturer be contacted to get a software version that is either VT3 or VT4.

Implements without controllers

Implements without controllers can be documented as a stand-alone operation or with a rate controller from John Deere. Additionally, multiple implements without controllers cannot be documented together.

AutoPath

AutoPath is compatible with 4600 CommandCenter (v2 server) and 4640 Universal Displays running 20-3 or later software.

AutoPath requires specific source operation data (including an implement receiver) gathered during the first field operation of the year.

For more information on AutoPath functionality and requirements, refer to the Sales Manual.
