EZ-Steer® 500 by Trimble®
The unique EZ-Steer® assisted steering system turns the steering wheel for you by combining a friction wheel and motor with GPS guidance from the EZ-Guide® 250 or 500 lightbar. Now, while the EZ-Steer system keeps you +/- 6"-8" on line in any terrain, you can focus on many different tasks, such as spray or planter performance. Basically, the EZ-Steer system gives you time to ponder the fuel and input savings of straighter rows while reducing driver fatigue.
EZ to Install and Operate:
The EZ-Steer system is easy to install, setup, and use. Installation can be completed in less than thirty minutes with one wrench. No need for complex hydraulic interfaces. You can remove the system from a vehicle in a few minutes and never know it was fitted.
Hands Free On Rough and Rolling Terrain:
Trimble's exclusive T2 terrain compensation technology gives the EZ-Steer user +/- 6"-8" pass-to-pass accuracy and smooth hands-free driving on rolling, sloping or even rough terrains such as ditches, waterways, and terraces. This optional feature uses two accelerometers and two gyroscopes to compensate for roll and yaw. Information from these sensors, located in the steering controller, is used at ten times per second to compensate the GPS position for sloping and rough terrain.
