Today, Ripon Farm Services offer a range of receivers and correction signal to suit any requirement and any equipment.

What are your options?

Firstly, receivers are offered either as universal, enabling transfer between equipment or as integrated within a machine. Each option has benefits, dependent on need, the flexibility of a universal unit or the security of integration.

Both units receive GPS information which when linked with applications help deliver results, whatever the job.

How does correction signalling help?

One word, accuracy. We know every centimetre matters, correction signal will further benefit when spreading, cutting or cultivating. Base level accuracy is measured within 15cm but upgrades to SF3 will create accuracy within 3cm and can be stored for 9 months, while RTK is accurate within 2cm and can be stored indefinitely.
