The new IC-18 sprayer system from TeeJet Technologies is a full feature ISOBUS automatic rate control designed for precision application of liquids.
The system can be used with field sprayers, liquid fertilizer applicators, or anhydrous ammonia toolbars.
The IC-18 uses virtual terminals available in an ISOBUS-equipped cab, resulting in fewer consoles to clutter the work area for the driver/operator.
The system allows information to be stored from planning to application to application records -- including application maps -- with one easy-to-install system.
An optional accessory to the IC-18, the TeeJet BoomPilot ECU is an ISOBUS-based automatic section control module that contains everything required to deliver automatic section control to the IC-18. With a built-in GPS receiver, the BoomPilot ECU maintains a map of all areas of a field that have been treated. It will automatically switch off any sprayer or toolbar section outside the intended zone to prevent costly over-application. The BoomPilot can control up to 10 individual sprayer sections.
If a virtual terminal is needed, the system includes the Matrix 570 VT which serves as an interface with TeeJet and other ISOBUS control modules. The terminal is also handy for using on older tractors to update their capability to feed information to the main farm fleet and maintain compatibility of data.
