ISOBUS system for automatic control of filling, stirring and rinsing processes with crop sprayers
The new TANK-Control III is now ISOBUS-compatible and can be used both as a standalone device and in combination with the crop protection job computer application from Müller-Elektronik. In contrast to its predecessor, TANK-Control III now consists of two components: The ISOBUS job computer and the operating device to control processes on the filling sluice outside on the implement. The advantage of the new system is the automation of processes and therefore the electrical regulation of all valves and pumps.
The job computer is ISOBUS-compatible, comes with its own operating screen, and can be used with any ISOBUS terminal in the tractor cab. In addition, TANK-Control III is fully integrated in the Müller-Elektronik sprayer controls, which makes operation more simple and comfortable for the user. The display complies with protection class IP69 (according to DIN EN 60529) and is suitable for use outside on the implement.
TANK-Control III is available as a Müller-Elektronik version, but it can also be adapted to specific manufacturers. The Müller version offers the most important standard functions to control filling and stirring processes. Two fill level sensors can be used to measure the contents of up to two tanks. With ISOBUS, all information, both from the implement and from the TANK-Control III system, is available anywhere on the implement. This allows not only reading of the tank content at the filling point, but also e.g. the calculation of the fill amount required to process the remaining field area. This simplifies the filling procedure considerably and reduces residual quantities to a minimum. OEM-specific solutions can be developed based on this standard version, such as individualisation of the casing stickers and user interface as well as functional extensions such as rinsing and cleaning.
