Auto-Guide™ 3000 Basic: Implement Profile

AG3000 Basic_Implement Prof_FIG 25

An implement profile includes:

  • Implement type and location in relation to the vehicle and the direction of travel
  • Implement width
  • Implement offset
  • Link length

The width of an implement and the overlap amount will determine the swath width. The swath width determines the distance between the waylines.

Get the following measurements before making an implement profile:

  • Implement width
  • Offset
  • Link length
  • Overlap

Measurements that are not accurate will cause problems with the system precision. The recommended tolerance is ± 5 cm (± 1.97 in).

 

Making an implement profile:

AG3000 Basic_Implement Prof_FIG 26

1. Select AG3000 Basic_Implement Prof_1 (1).

2. Select the name box (2) to change the name.

3. Select AG3000 Basic_Implement Prof_2 (3).

4. Select AG3000 Basic_Implement Prof_3 (4) to move through the implement types.

  • Rear rigid
  • Rear trailed
  • Front rigid

5. Select AG3000 Basic_Implement Prof_2 (5).

6. Enter the implement width value (6).

7. Select AG3000 Basic_Implement Prof_2 (7).

8. Enter the link length value (8).

The link length value is the distance between the drawbar point and the working part of the implement.

9. Select AG3000 Basic_Implement Prof_2 (9).

10. Enter the offset value (10).

The offset value is the distance the implement is to the right or left of the drawbar point. A positive value indicates the implement is to the right-hand side of the drawbar point. A negative value indicates the implement is to the left-hand side of the drawbar point. If the implement is centered on the drawbar point, the offset must be set to zero.

Select AG3000 Basic_Implement Prof_4 (11) to center the implement.

11. Select AG3000 Basic_Implement Prof_2 (12).

12. Enter the overlap value (13).

13. Select AG3000 Basic_Implement Prof_2 (14) to return to the setup menu.

 

Selecting an implement profile:

AG3000 Basic_Implement Prof_FIG 27

1. Select AG3000 Basic_Implement Prof_5 (1).

2. Select the name box (2).

3. Select the desired implement (3).

4. Select AG3000 Basic_Implement Prof_6 (4).

5. Select AG3000 Basic_Implement Prof_7 (5) to return to the setup menu.

 

Editing an implement profile:

AG3000 Basic_Implement Prof_FIG 28

1. Select AG3000 Basic_Implement Prof_8 (1).

2. Edit the fields as necessary.

  • Implement name (2)
  • Implement type (3)
  • Offset value (4)
  • Link length (5)
  • Implement width (6)
  • Overlap value (7)

3. Select AG3000 Basic_Implement Prof_2 (8).

4. Select AG3000 Basic_Implement Prof_7 (9) to return to the setup menu.

 

Deleting an implement profile:

AG3000 Basic_Implement Prof_FIG 29

1. Select AG3000 Basic_Implement Prof_5 (1).

2. Select the name box (2).

3. Select the desired implement (3).

4. Select AG3000 Basic_Implement Prof_9 (4).

5. Select AG3000 Basic_Implement Prof_2 (5).

6. Select AG3000 Basic_Implement Prof_7 (6) to return to the setup menu.
