Intelligent Agricultural Solutions introduces Recon SpraySense, a solution that monitors real-time flow and pressure of all nozzles on sprayers.

This technology upgrades existing sprayers by monitoring nozzle performance. “The typical agricultural spray system (sprayer) has 72 nozzles or more. Even though nozzles are small, they are vital to accomplishing the desired results with a given chemical or fertilizer. Flow problems are extremely difficult to see with the naked eye. If nozzles are plugged even partially, the operator will likely not know until it’s too late and the damage has been done,” says Intelligent Ag.

Monitor spray quality with iPad application

With Recon SpraySense, operators can monitor the spray quality from inside the cab with an iPad application. Once product is flowing, the app shows real-time flow rate, pressure, and droplet size. If any nozzles are not spraying on target, the operator will know instantly.
