Legacy Trimble Ag15 and Ag25 Information
Updated: Sep 16, 2022
The Micro-Ant family of precision GPS antennas provide superior accuracy and performance for guiding automated agricultural equipment and have been sold in the industry as Trimble Ag 15 (Micro-ant Dogfish) and Trimble Ag 25 (Micro-Ant Argo) for over a decade.
The primary application for the Micro-Ant precision GPS antennas is for use in GPS guidance systems for automated farm equipment. This allows farmers and operators to make maximum use of heir resources. Across the world, farming operations are becoming larger and more complex, while simultaneously facing pressure to produce more, be more efficient and eco-conscious, reduce costs, be profitable, and make better use of increasingly scarce skilled labor. GPS guided systems can help farmers achieve these goals. Micro-Ant Precision GPS systems are designed to seamlessly integrate with the standard Trimble Navigation Systems and have also been used in mining, forensics, surveying, and industrial applications.
Argo (also sold as Ag 25 by Trimble)
The Micro-Ant Argo is a high-performance, rugged multiband antenna designed for field use in agricultural conditions. It is functionally identical to the Trimble Ag25 and can seamlessly replace it. It maintains a high level of precision, even when receiving signals from low-elevation satellites. This lets you track and lock onto lower elevation satellites, while maintaining strong signal to noise ratio. The antenna also features superior multipath rejection.
Argo is portable and easy to install and maintain. It is 100% compatible with products that incorporate Trimble’s Transcend positioning technology, including agriculture receivers, lightbars, and displays. Argo uses the full GPS and GNSS frequencies to get mm accuracy for high-precision applications.
Argo can receive the following correction signals and GNSS types:
· GPS (L1, L2, and L5)
· GLONASS (G1, G2, & G5)
· SBAS (WAAS, EGNOS, And MSAS)
· OmniSTAR VBS, OmniStar XP, and HP
"Micro-Ant has been developing and manufacturing Precision GPS technologies for two decades and we test every single antenna for performance and environmental ruggedness in our production process"
Wahoo (also sold as Ag 15 by Trimble)
The Micro-Ant Wahoo is also a high-performance, and rugged antenna though with a more limited band. The Wahoo upgrades the accuracy of the EZ Guide 250 display and is an affordable tool for improving the efficiency of spraying.
Wahoo is easy to install and maintain and is a lower cost option for applications requiring accuracy down to 10-20cm.
