IronOne adds another system component and empowers heavy equipment manufacturers to deliver their own machine control and guidance solutions to their customers.

“IronOne is a rugged display that can easily be adapted to any customer’s requirements,” said Matt Steele, product manager at Hemisphere. “With an IP67 rating, high-end processor, and top-of-the-line embedded Windows 10 operating system, IronOne will withstand and exceed expectations in some of the most challenging environments in the machine control landscape.”

Connectivity features on the IronOne include ethernet, CANbus, wi-fi, and Bluetooth and offers optional cellular modem for maximum connectivity in the field. Described as  easy-to-read, the 8” TFT-LCD capacitive touchscreen display is suited to be inside heavy machinery where different viewing angles are required.

IronOne is agnostic and can support site-specific management tools or grading-specific software that requires high-processing speeds and fast update rates. The computer contains an Intel Atom dual-core processor designed for heavy processing requirements.

Agility and Technology Meets Iron
According to the company, Hemisphere is providing the world’s first “full system OEM positioning solution toolkit” for building complete machine control and guidance systems with the announcement of the GradeMetrix™ application software and an array of compatible GNSS hardware components. These include C321 RTK Base & Rover with SiteMetrix™ Site Management Software, A326 Rugged GNSS Smart Antenna, Vector VR500 Rugged All-in-One Smart Antenna, and Vector VR1000 Rugged GNSS Receiver.

The GradeMetrix OEM application software platform is designed to manage your machines for any control or guidance application. Whether it is grading, mining, excavating, drilling & piling, or landfill applications, you can rebrand the GradeMetrix software to sell as your own, according to Hemisphere.

Hemisphere is at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2017, March 7-11, at booth# G71925.
