  NEWS RELEASE

 
Trimble to Showcase its Latest Agriculture Solutions at Agritechnica

New Functionality of its Android-Based Display and
Connected Farm Platform to be Focus at Expo


SUNNYVALE, Calif., Nov. 6, 2015—Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) will be showcasing its latest agriculture solutions at Agritechnica in Hanover, Germany, November 8-14. Trimble—which provides precision agriculture solutions to farmers worldwide including total farm management with its Connected Farm™ solution—and its German/Austrian reseller geo-konzept, will be located in Hall 15 Stand K05.

Latest TMX-2050 Display Functionality

Trimble will be showcasing the latest functionality of its Android™-based TMX-2050™ display including:
  • New third-party apps, which provide functionality ranging from fertilizer calibration charts to nutrient deficiency identification. The apps are now available for download from App Central marketplace on the display and provide farmers with access to specialized mobile tools, which address regional farming needs and simplify farm management.

  • Innovative NextSwath™ end-of-row turn technology, which is a feature of the Autopilot™ automated steering system. Available on the TMX-2050 display, NextSwath automatically calculates and executes the best possible path to turn the farm vehicle around and approach the next crop row with the implement precisely aligned to begin working. The technology reduces towed implement undershooting or overshooting, and minimizes skips and overlaps when lining up for the next row. As a result, it enables growers to save on fuel costs, reduce crop damage and compaction, and increase yield.

  • Improved ISOBUS communication in the TMX-2050 display, which provides easier implement setup.
In addition, CenterPoint® RTX less than five minute initialization is now available on the TMX-2050 display. Delivered via L-band satellite, this correction service delivers typically less than 4 centimeter horizontal accuracy and is available throughout much of western and central Europe. CenterPoint RTX is also offered on the CFX-750™ display and the Ag-372 GNSS receiver.

More Options with TMX-2050 and CFX-750 Displays

Trimble also is introducing more flexibility and options for both the TMX-2050 and CFX-750 displays to provide farmers—with varying precision agriculture needs, price points and farm size—a display solution that best fits their requirements. With the TMX-2050 display, customers have the option to purchase the current version that includes both the Precision-IQ™ and FmX® Plus applications, or a new version that will focus on Precision-IQ, which is expected to be available by the end of the year. The FmX Plus application leverages the same familiar workflows and menus of the Trimble FmX integrated display, while taking advantage of the latest advancements in hardware, processing speed and field connectivity of the TMX-2050 display. Precision-IQ provides a graphics-rich and intuitive workflow in an application specialized for auto-guidance and standardized protocols including ISOBUS.

In addition to the current version of the CFX-750 display, which includes auto-guidance capabilities and application control, Trimble has also launched a CFX-750 Lite display version. CFX-750 Lite provides a simplified set up and price point that make it easier for new users to adopt precision farming technology, and is upgradeable to allow the user to access higher functionalities such as auto-guidance and application control. CFX-750 Lite is currently available.

Connected Farm File Transfer APIs

Agritechnica attendees can stop by the Trimble stand to learn about new third-party platforms that now integrate with the Connected Farm solution. By integrating platforms, data replication is eliminated and farmers can receive easier access to field data, leading to time savings and increased efficiency.

Autopilot Motor Drive

In addition, Autopilot Motor Drive will be on display at the Trimble booth. Autopilot Motor Drive is a new electric option available with the Autopilot automated steering system that enables the steering system to tie into a compact electric motor instead of the vehicle's hydraulics. As a result, Autopilot Motor Drive enables simpler installation since no integration with the vehicle's hydraulics is required, and it is easy to transfer between vehicles.

Trimble Presentation

Trimble will be presenting on Tuesday, November 10, 10-11 a.m. at the Forum 2 "Technology and Management" session. Rasso J. Schatz, regional sales manager of Germany, Austria and Switzerland at Trimble Agriculture, will speak about how "Trimble offers an individual and brand-agnostic solution for a wide variety of farming applications—from planning to steering to data management." The presentation takes place in Hall 08 Stand A05. For more information, go to:  https://www.agritechnica.com/de/fachprogramm/terminkalender/.

"Agritechnica provides Trimble with a unique opportunity to talk with farmers from around the world," said Markus Meyer, sales director of EMEA for Trimble's Agriculture Division. "Based on their farm and region's specific needs and challenges, we are able to show farmers how Trimble solutions can streamline processes, save on inputs and enable them to make better decisions based on real-time data."

Trimble's agriculture solutions will also be on display at over 25 locations during the Agritechnica show, including leading European vehicle and implement OEM manufacturers.
