With growing costs of seed, fertilizers, and agrochemicals, the interest in site-specific application is rising tremendously. The GreenStar™ 3 2630 (GS3) takes variable-rate application to the next level with a large color display for viewing and creating maps. The GS3 2630 Display also works with approved (ISOBUS) rate controllers to enhance variable-rate application.
Variable rate used on equipment allows input application rates to be varied across fields to specifically manage field variability. The variable-rate application reduces input usage and environmental impacts while increasing efficiency and providing economic benefits. An example would be applying fertilizer to areas with high yield potential and reducing the amount of fertilizer in areas where nutrients are more likely to be washed out.
John Deere precision agricultural technology provides multiple opportunities to upgrade. Producers can confidently invest in technology today, knowing it can grow and change as their operation does. Producers can contact a John Deere dealer to learn more about available solutions.
Producers have the ability to upgrade signal accuracy with activations on the receiver only and no need to update AutoTrac™ display activation.
John Deere dealers offer an upgrade option for all AMS software applications from a previous to newer model.
Producers also have the ability to upgrade to the latest receivers.
Maximizing investment cost
Many of the same solutions available with AutoTrac are compatible with the GreenStar system using AutoTrac Controller or AutoTrac Universal. Additional solutions available include John Deere Active Implement Guidance and John Deere Section Control.
This provides many options with one constant: stretching the producer’s money to bring more optimization to all equipment.
Producers will need to determine what:
GreenStar Display sample options
Use existing GreenStar Display and move display between machines throughout cropping cycle:
Upgrade to a new display, trade in existing display
Add a new display
This allows each machine to have a dedicated display and eliminates the need to move a display from machine to machine.
Use an existing StarFire Receiver and move it between machines throughout the cropping cycle.
Upgrade to a StarFire 3000 Receiver, trade in existing receiver
Add a new receiver
All producers, whether new to precision technology or an experienced user, are invited to visit their John Deere dealer to customize the right precision solution package that meets their operational needs now and in the future.
There is an increasing need and requirement to document the production process from field preparation to crop harvest. Precise documentation capabilities are provided by the GreenStar™ 3 2630 Display.
On-screen mapping provides in-cab visualization in color and, by color-coding each pass on a map, the display provides a real-time picture of the crop harvested or rates applied when spraying, spreading, or planting. Compatible desktop software helps optimize business through more informed decision making while also meeting regulation requirements.
A task can be planned on the desktop software and transferred to the display. Field operations are recorded and stored. The data can then be transferred from the display, using a flash drive, to the desktop software for job reporting and analysis. This means less paperwork and more focus on analysis.
The documentation functionality provides data collection tools to document the farming operation. Features include:
Data collected on the display via these functionalities are providing a solid basis for precise, complete, and easy documentation.
A variety of John Deere precision applications can be ran on the GreenStar™ 3 2630 Display with a StarFire™ 3000 Receiver regardless if it is planting or harvesting season, or for any application in between.
One single display and receiver can increase an operation’s productivity and provide a consistent operating experience for anyone using it.
The following activations can be purchased and unlocked on the display with a 24-digit activation code:
Additional applications for the GreenStar 3 2630 Display and StarFire Receivers
These applications do not require a separate activation for the display
There are 15-hour demo activations available for the GreenStar 3 (GS3) 2630 Display. The following activations are available for demonstrations:
The John Deere GreenStar™ 3 (GS3) 2630 Display is a 26-cm (10.4-in.) color display that features a full-color touchscreen for controlling a variety of precision applications, machines, and implements.
The GS3 2630 Display also allows operators to set up multiple homepages and navigate to each homepage easily and efficiently, all while other applications are in use. The GS3 2630 Display is specifically designed for producers who desire maximum efficiency, productivity, and premium features outlined below.
The GreenStar™ 3 (GS3) 2630 Display can support three video inputs for those who want more visibility when operating large machinery. The video can be viewed while operating machinery directly on the GS3 2630 Display.
The video images can be included in a loop that automatically cycles through each video input. Video can also be set as a quarter of a home page screen.
The GS3 2630 is compatible with the following camera signal types:
As the number of precision ag products continues to increase and more technology becomes integrated into ag equipment, along with varying operator skills in the cab, it is necessary for users to be able to remotely manage operations and dealers to be able to provide remote support.
From an Internet-connected device, users with RDA and JDLink™ wireless communication system can help operators using the GS3 2630 Display.
From an Internet-connected device, users with Remote Display Access can view the operator’s GS3 2630 Display screen. This functionality enables the Remote Display Access user to identify a problem and help the operator navigate through the steps needed to resolve the issue.
The GreenStar 3 2630 is an ISOBUS capable displays. ISOBUS VT3 allows the display to control ISOBUS-compatible implements and controllers. This compatibility allows the GS3 2630 Display to be used in a variety of applications and, in many cases, reduces the number of displays in the cab.
The GreenStar 3 2630 Display can also manage variable rate applications and section control with non-John Deere implements thanks to its ISOBUS task controller compatibility.
The GS3 2630 Display provides the same screen size and it features
The GS3 2630 Display allows machine and implement control by interfacing with John Deere controllers. GreenStar Rate Controller, GreenStar Rate Controller Dry, and third-party controllers can all interface with the GS3 2630.
The GS3 2630 along with these controllers can control seeding and application rates, all while providing a coverage map showing the area applied. All data is collected and can later be unloaded in Farm Management software, where it can be shown in the form of maps and reports.
Most USB memory storage devices are compatible with John Deere displays. Note the following USB flash drive requirements:
The GS3 2630 Display has:
The GS3 2630 Display has a fast, powerful processor that helps reduce display lockups.
Access manager can be used to prevent operators from changing settings in the field by locking specific settings. These settings are determined by the producer and can be password protected. Access manager allows for less operator error while being more productive in the field.
Layout manager allows operators to configure home pages on the GS3 2630 Display in the desired format, displaying the information that is essential. Layout manager also allows operators to page through other screens by simply selecting the homepage icon.
Standby mode allows operators to dim the display while driving between fields or at night. The standby softkey is displayed when the menu is selected.
Standby mode also eliminates non-critical alarms and other warnings that appear on screen while in transport, but still alerts operators of any critical warning.
Operators can exit standby mode by simply touching the screen.
The GS3 2630 Display automatically recognizes what field it is in during machine startup to ensure data is being documented to the correct location.
The field locator notifies operators when they have left the field and helps operators select the correct field by using GPS data. Touching the map screen allows operators to search for a new field.
