StarFire™ 6000 Receiver

The John Deere StarFire 6000 Receiver is an enhanced replacement for the StarFire 3000 Receiver and expands on the value that precision agriculture growers have come to expect from StarFire products. The StarFire 6000 Receiver implements an improved antenna, the latest in Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) signal processing technology, and a differential correction signal. This technology adds up to improved performance and uptime as well as lower cost of operation when paired with precision agriculture systems such as AutoTrac© assisted steering system and John Deere Section Control.

 

Customer value:

  • Customize accuracy and repeatability to meet the needs of the operation
  • Get started faster with improved pull-in performance
  • Maximize uptime to keep the job moving

As equipment gets larger and margins tighter, accuracy of in-field operations and input placement is more critical than ever.

When making a pass in a field, traveling from one end of the field to another, the position accuracy of the return pass is critical. Pass-to-pass accuracy means the planter guess rows will be accurate and subsequent passes are less likely to result in crop damage.

Repeatability defines how accurately the receiver calculates its position over a relatively long time window.

The StarFire© 6000 Receiver offers 66 percent improved pull-in performance, SF2 versus SF3, compared to its predecessor. The StarFire 6000 Integrated Receiver offers an additional 33 percent improvement in SF3 pull-in compared to SF3 on the current StarFire 6000. This means the operator spends less time waiting for the receiver to achieve full accuracy and can start high-precision jobs like planting and nutrient application even faster. It also means less time waiting to reacquire full accuracy after an extended shading event, such as running next to trees while planting headlands.

StarFire 6000 and StarFire 6000 Integrated pull-in time:
  • SF1: About 10 minutes
  • SF3: Less than 30 minutes
  • SF3: Less than 20 minutes with StarFire 6000 Integrated
  • Radio RTK: Less than 1 minute
  • Mobile RTK: Less than 1 minute

Applications this differential correction is best suited for
  • Tillage
  • Broad-acre chemical/fertilizer application (broadcast fertilizer spreading and spraying)
  • Price-sensitive customers
 
  • Multiple operations (planting, fertilizer sidedressing, post-emerge spraying, and harvest) using the same guidance lines for one entire season
  • Strip till
  • Controlled traffic
  • Repeatable Section Control performance for an entire season
  • Customers in areas where RTK networks do not exist
  • Customers who are price-sensitive and don't invest in RTK infrastructure
  • AutoTrac in flat terrain or areas without thick tree cover
  • iGrade (requires local RTK base station)
  • Boundary mapping for long-term Section Control performance
  • Repeatable guidance lines over multiple years (drip tape irrigation, sugar cane, strip till, and controlled traffic)
  • AutoTrac in hills and areas with thick tree cover
  • Customers with JDLink and John Deere Mobile RTK Signal coverage
  • Boundary mapping for long-term Section Control performance
  • Repeatable guidance lines over multiple years (drip tape irrigation, sugar cane, strip till, and controlled traffic)

Protect investments with a security PIN code
StarFire© 6000 Receiver StarFire© 6000 Receiver

Producers have asked for a way to better secure their John Deere devices from improper use and thefts. With the 19-1 software update, John Deere added an enhancement to the user interface of the StarFire 6000 Receiver.

With this solution, producers have the choice to enable the security PIN code feature and set up a unique four-digit PIN code to enable and unlock their device, similar to a mobile device. Enabling this code will allow only users with the defined PIN code to access the device when it powers on.

This feature has two levels of access that can be defined. An administrator PIN code must be defined to enable the feature and should be used by the farm manager. A second optional operator PIN code can be defined for usage by operators of the machine.
