The spray controller 24V1 compensates for changes in speed, pump pressure or section shutdown to maintain the target rate you select.

Flexibility in the field

For heavy and light weed patches, you can increase or decrease rates on-the-go and a master switch gives instant stop /start control at headlands or when refilling. The left /right marker switch is available to control air /liquid solenoid valves.

Advanced Features

Selectable display format. You can choose any four main display options, so the information you need can be viewed without pressing buttons.

Status light

A clever status light tells the operator at a glance when the sprayer is operating 100% on target. In the event of any change, a red light and audible alarm is activated.

Message bar
 
The message bar assists the operator with simple instructions when calibrating, displays warning messages and provides advice on corrective action.

Calibration lockout

Setup and calibration options can be locked out to avoid unauthorised tampering.

Second sprayline

The optional second sprayline is activated automatically when the first sprayline reaches maximum pressure.

The benefits of second sprayline have been proven in the field.

Operators can now:

Work faster when conditions permit.
Change rates without changing nozzle size.
Get better weed kill through better coverage.
Reduce drift with lower spray pressures.

Multi-step control

A new system that works with different size nozzles in each sprayline.

The controller automatically selects first, second or both spraylines to maintain the best working pressure. This results in smoother transition from one line to the other and even greater flexibility in rates and working speeds.

Slow hold

When slowing at headlands or round obstacles, the slow hold facility avoids pressure drop
and loss of spray coverage by automatically holding the control valve at a minimum operating pressure.

GPS control and coverage mapping

The spray controller 24V1 has a bi-directional serial port ready to connect with guidance/task computers, allowing variable rate control, coverage mapping and live reporting.

Control Options

The standard spray controller 24V1 kit is supplied with a 3 or 5 section control bank including pressure relief valve, proportional flow control valve, precision flow sensor and motorised section control valves to suit boom sprayers and low volume horticultural sprayers.

Alternative control valves and sensors are available for high volume airblast and ultra low volume applications.

An optional dump valve is available to divert pump delivery back to the tank whenever the master switch or section valves are switched off.

A second sprayline can be setup as a single section or split sections using multiple section valves.

The optional pressure sensor is available to provide a pressure readout and pressure based control of the slow hold and second sprayline functions.

The controller will accept radar, magnetic wheel sensor (standard), speedo drive cable sensor, or GPS  speed sensor.
