Spray height control
Norac (Canada) has announced that its UC5 spray height control system is now compatible with the Viper 4 field computer from Raven Industries. The product line is Isobus certified.
AFTER THOROUGH SOFTWARE TESTING, Norac engineers have added the Viper 4 field computer to the list of 17 virtual terminals that have been approved for use with their spray height control system. “Customers expect that our UC5 Isobus compatible system will interface with the latest displays on the market,” said Danea Armstrong, Vice of Norac Systems International.
“We are confident that operators will experience a seamless user interface using a UC5 system through the Raven Viper 4 display.” Although the product is Isobus certified, the company completes comprehensive testing before a virtual terminal is added to the approved list. According to the company, customers continue to ask for fewer displays in the cab and UC5’s Isobus capabilities helps to achieve this.
The spray height control system uses ultrasonic sensors mounted on the left, right, and center sections to automatically maintain a preset height of the entire boom above the ground or crop.
The system can be operated through the tractor's existing virtual terminal or Ag Leader panel and is available with the company’s Pulse to make it a stand-alone system. It can also be integrated with existing control electronics. The product’s ultrasonic sensors do not need light to measure the boom height so the user can take advantage of favorable spraying conditions by extending working hours well into the night with the ability to spray any time.
