AMES, IOWA, November 3, 2009 – Ag Leader Technology, Inc., a leader in the development of precision farming solutions, introduced its latest guidance solution, the L160 CAN bus Lightbar. As a companion to either Ag Leader’s Integra or EDGE™ displays, the L160 can be mounted on the windshield or dash, allowing operators to monitor guidance by looking straight ahead while keeping their display within easy reach.

“By mounting the lightbar in front, operators can see information such as cross-track error, pass number and degree heading with a quick glance, and operators do not have to reach over the steering wheel to get to their display,” says GPS and Guidance Product Specialist, Bill Cran.

The L160 features an easy-to-read display with 16 multicolor LEDs, which are easy to see even with peripheral vision. From the display, the operator can choose between chase or pull LED modes as well as configure LED spacing. “Being able to mount the L160 in front of the operator offers convenience, and this convenience comes without adding a lot of cost to an existing system,” adds Cran.

The lightbar features adjustable LED brightness, making it ideal for either daylight or night use. With its compact design, the L160 can be mounted on any flat surface using its suction cup “twist” locking collar.
