StarFire 6000 Receiver

StarFire 6000

The new StarFire™ 6000 Receiver offers a full range of differential correction levels — from SF1 up to the premium RTK option. When paired with the StarFire™ 6000 Receiver, the new SF3 correction level delivers 40% greater pass-to-pass accuracy of 1.2 inches (3 cm), as well as 1.2 inches (3 cm) in-season repeatability. With faster pull-in times, better accuracy, and in-season repeatability, the new StarFire 6000 Receiver and SF3 differential correction signal can improve your bottom line.

Customize accuracy and repeatability to meet the needs of an operation
The StarFire 6000 Receiver offers multiple differential correction signal levels to match receiver performance with the needs of the operation.
StarFire 6000 horizontal pass-to-pass accuracy:
  • SF1: +/- 15 cm (5.9 in.)
  • SF3: +/- 3 cm (1.2 in.)
  • Radio RTK: +/- 2.5 cm (1.0 in.)
Maximize uptime to keep a job moving
The StarFire 6000 Receiver has 252 channels and tracks both GPS (United States) and GLONASS (Russia) satellites. Tracking as many GNSS satellite signals as possible increases the chances of retaining accuracy and performance in challenging areas such as when operating near trees.
Improve uptime with multiple StarFire signal tracking
The StarFire 6000 Receiver is capable of simultaneously tracking correction signals from up to three StarFire correction satellites. The receiver tracks and uses correction signals from all StarFire satellites in view and intelligently chooses one that will deliver the best performance.  When the receiver moves into an area where the primary StarFire signal is blocked such as near a tree line, the receiver will automatically switch to an alternate StarFire signal (if visible) to help maintain accuracy and performance.  Compare this to the previous StarFire 3000 Receiver that was only capable of tracking one StarFire signal at a time and could wait up to four minutes to initiate the switch to the next available signal.
With the StarFire 6000, the user gets improved performance and uptime when operating precision agriculture systems like AutoTrac and Section Control in challenging areas when compared to the previous StarFire 3000.
Gracefully coast through StarFire signal outages
The StarFire 6000 is capable of coasting through SF3 signal outages of up to 20 minutes in duration in case the user needs to operate AutoTrac in an area where all StarFire signals are temporarily blocked by trees or other obstructions. Accuracy will slowly degrade over this 20-minute period and will be shown to the operator via the accuracy indicator on the display.
Quickly recover to full accuracy after GNSS signal outages
The StarFire 6000 also delivers a faster and more robust rapid recovery feature, which allows the system to quickly recover to high-accuracy performance after losing track of GPS/GLONASS signals for short durations. This means the user spends less time waiting for the system to recover to full accuracy after temporary shading events, such as turning around near a headland shaded by trees.
Take advantage of RTK Extend™ system for up to 14 days
RTK users have experienced the value that RTK Extend provides when operating in areas where communication with the RTK base station is challenging, such as in hilly terrain and areas with many trees. The StarFire 6000 makes another step change in RTK Extend performance compared to its predecessor, delivering RTK Extend for up to 14 days.
