Working seamlessly with Outback eDriveX with eTurns, the Outback MAX integrated display terminal provides a full array of features including section and variable rate control, Eclipse L1/L2 GPS and GLONASS guidance, and video support for up to 4 monitoring cameras.
Outback MAX also provides wireless connectivity via the Outback ConnX data management system to deliver real time data access and management that is imperative for modern farmers. ConnX provides seamless data transfer between the Outback MAX terminal, office, and service providers ensuring efficient, accurate decision making and farming operations. ConnX can automatically import and export data, engage customer service with remote control capability, and simplify connection to RTK correctors. ConnX is compatible with popular data platforms including AgJunction, AgVerdict, NutriScription HD, OptiGro, and Precision.Ag.
“Hemisphere GPS has established a new level of innovation with Outback MAX that will substantially improve the accessibility and effectiveness of automated guidance and application control,” says Kip Pendleton, Sr. Vice President and General Manager of Agriculture at Hemisphere GPS. “The highly functional yet simple design of Outback MAX combined with the seamless connectivity between the field, office, and service providers greatly enhance the value that farmers can realize from precision farming techniques.”
Building on the functionality of company’s successful, the feature-rich Outback S3, the Outback MAX adds a host of new features that make it the most powerful and intuitive Outback product yet. Outback MAX leads the way with simplicity in design and operation, a powerful mapping engine, excellent screen clarity, seamless connectivity, and a rugged design that can operate in rough environments—features that are critical to achieving the benefits of precision farming.
With a focus on simplicity, Outback MAX incorporates the ability to create shortcuts and favorites for the most commonly used tasks, facilitating a short learning curve with simple access to important features, getting farmers up and running quickly.
The visual clarity of the high-definition, 10.4 inch, highly responsive touchscreen leads to more consistent and precise farming applications even in direct sunlight or during the night. Outback MAX displays a multitude of information while leaving plenty of room to view field and machine progress. Farmers can take action more quickly regarding critical information such as tank volume, automated eTurns, and overriding control of the correct sections—leading to better yields and reduced inputs through more effective and accurate application as well as improved safety.
