StarFire™ 6000 Receiver
The John Deere StarFire 6000 Receiver is an enhanced replacement for the StarFire 3000 Receiver and expands on the value that precision agriculture growers have come to expect from StarFire products. The StarFire 6000 Receiver implements an improved antenna, the latest in Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) signal processing technology, and a differential correction signal. This technology adds up to improved performance and uptime as well as lower cost of operation when paired with precision agriculture systems such as AutoTrac™ assisted steering system and John Deere Section Control.
- Customize accuracy and repeatability to meet the needs of the operation
- Get started faster with improved pull-in performance
- Maximize uptime to keep the job moving
Selecting the right correction signal
As equipment gets larger and margins tighter, accuracy of in-field operations and input placement is more critical than ever.
When making a pass in a field, traveling from one end of the field to another, the position accuracy of the return pass is critical. Pass-to-pass accuracy means the planter guess rows will be accurate and subsequent passes are less likely to result in crop damage.
Repeatability defines how accurately the receiver calculates its position over a relatively long time window.
Get started faster with improved pull-in performance
The StarFire™ 6000 Receiver offers 66 percent improved pull-in performance, SF2 versus SF3, compared to its predecessor. This means the operator spends less time waiting for the receiver to achieve full accuracy and can start high-precision jobs like planting and nutrient application even faster. It also means less time waiting to reacquire full accuracy after an extended shading event, such as running next to trees while planting headlands.
STARFIRE 6000 PULL-IN TIME:
- SF1: ~10 minutes
- SF3: <30 minutes
- Radio RTK: <1 minute
- Mobile RTK: <1 minute
StarFire™ 6000 Receiver correction signal right choice tool
Utilize this tool to help select the right correction signal for the operation. Selecting the right signal ensures the level of accuracy can be achieved for desired in-field performance.
Security PIN code
PROTECT INVESTMENTS WITH A SECURITY PIN CODE
Producers have asked for a way to better secure their John Deere devices from improper use and thefts. With the 19-1 software update, John Deere added an enhancement to the user interface of the StarFire 6000 Receiver.
With this solution, producers have the choice to enable the security PIN code feature and set up a unique four-digit PIN code to enable and unlock their device, similar to a mobile device. Enabling this code will allow only users with the defined PIN code to access the device when it powers on.
This feature has two levels of access that can be defined. An administrator PIN code must be defined to enable the feature and should be used by the farm manager. A second optional operator PIN code can be defined for usage by operators of the machine.
