No Cord Trimbe EZ Remote 0510

With custom programmable buttons, the EZ-Remote joystick can be paired with all Trimble displays.

Trimble CFX 750

With an 8" touch screen, the CFX-750 display provides scalable GPS capability that can be upgraded up to RTK signals.

Building on its lineup of precision ag products, Trimble adds a new display, more features to its input control system and a joystick accessory.

The CFX-750 display features an 8" touch screen and GPS capability from manual guidance to RTK. The display is also compatible with Trimble’s telemetry product, Connected Farm. The CFX-750 features section control, rate control, visual guidance, variable-rate application, camera compatibility and data transfer via USB or Connected Farm. The display receives satellite signals from GPS and GLONASS constellations. For guidance, the CFX-750 can be matched with the LB25 external lightbar, EZ-Steer or Autopilot. Base price: $2,995; GPS signals are $2,000 with each accuracy upgrade.

The Field-IQ crop input control system is enhanced with additional capabilities for variable-rate and boom control. Field-IQ is a modular system that can connect to existing components such as valves, flow meters and cab-mounted switches. The system provides automatic control for up to 48 sections. It is compatible with both the FmX and CFX-750 displays. For swath control on spreaders, the Field-IQ system will now control Rawson PAR 2 and 40 drives and integrate into existing servo and PWM valves. In addition to liquid fertilizer strip-till applications, Field-IQ adds control of NH3 and granular fertilizer applications.

For ergonomic control in the cab, Trimble introduces the EZ-Remote joystick accessory. The EZ-Remote can be paired with the Trimble FmX display, CFX-750 display, EZ-Guide 500 display or EZ-Guide 250 display. With programmable buttons, the joystick can be set with a wide range of functions, and illuminated buttons make it easy to see and feel where the control points are. Price range: $149 to $199, depending on cabling requirements. The EZ-Guide joystick can be paired with a standard RAM mount or a flex mount priced at $40.
