Kverneland extends use of its spreader set-up app

Kverneland has extended availability of its fertiliser spreading set-up app to the compact version of the IsoMatch Tellus in-cab terminal.

The AutosetApp software – previously available only on the full-sized twin-display Tellus – provides automatic setting up of Exacta CL EW and TL spreaders equipped with weigh cells once the key parameters have been entered by the operator.

The IsoMatch Tellus GO terminal has a 7in touch-screen display, with data entered also by hard keys and a dial at the side of the display.

It can run Kverneland’s IsoMatch GEOcontrol variable-rate and working-width section adjustment software products, which are available to license individually, using GNSS location, and as standard, the GO provides visual guidance, support for external variable-rate devices and data exchange via USB memory stick

The first step when using the new AutosetApp function is to enter the working width, application rate (kg/ha) and driving speed (kph), then the size distribution (%) and density of the fertiliser, and finally the product type, such as prilled or granular.

Once this information is entered, the operator sees the spreader settings recommended for the product, which can be accepted by pressing the “send” button. This transfers the working width, application rate, initial driving speed and starting point for dosing to the spreader’s job computer. It also sends the hopper-to-disc discharge point on spreaders where this can be adjusted automatically.
