New steering system from Geosystems developed in partnership with Novariant, Inc.

Novariant, Inc and Leica Geosystems have announced their joint partnership for the development of Leica Geosystems’ latest steering system, called the SteerDirect ES Plus.

The collaboration utilizes the Novariant’s fourth generation Mechanical Drive Unit (MDU) with Leica Geosystems’ guidance technology in order to offer an easy-to-operate GPS assisted steering system. The electrical steering system has been developed based on Novariant’s field-tested MDU technology, and it will connect to Leica Geosystems precision products directly via the CAN bus.  This enables integration with both the Leica mojo3D and Leica mojoXact Plus and provides a simple yet accurate means of steering the tractor for consistent year around operation.
