TeeJet Technologies launched a new precision spraying tool and updated its field computer system. The new DynaJet Flex 7120 nozzle control system actively manages spray quality across a wide range of operating speeds and application rates to ensure optimal performance of your crop protection inputs. The system consists of the DynaJet Console & Interface, Driver Modules, nozzle body mounted solenoid tip shutoffs and related harnesses. DynaJet is used in conjunction with an existing rate controller and features a modular design that can be retrofitted onto a wide range of new or used sprayers.
Spraying crop protection products has traditionally been a compromise, requiring the operator to carefully balance ground speed and operating pressure. The DynaJet system controls the pressure and droplet size across a wide range of speeds, allowing the operator to choose the optimum speed that conditions allow while maintaining consistent droplet size. For ease of operation, the compact, touchscreen user interface features a complete nozzle database that allows for easy droplet size selection.
In addition to improved spray quality management, the DynaJet system provides instantaneous tip shutoff which helps to minimize waste and overspray. Additionally, the ability to adjust nozzle flow capacity from the cab allows growers to operate at a wider range of ground speeds or application volumes without having to change nozzles, which results in greater productivity.
“The days of simple, glyphosate-based weed control programs are largely behind us. Today’s variety of chemistries requires more intensive management of spray quality to ensure proper pest control while preventing damage to off-target crops. ” notes Tim Stuenkel, Global Marketing Manager for TeeJet Technologies. “The DynaJet Flex 7120 provides a solution that ensures optimum spray application while boosting the operating efficiency of the machine.”
The company also updated its Aeros 9040 Field Computer now offers additional capabilities including tip flow monitoring, ISOBUS Universal Terminal (UT) functionality, and Wi-Fi data transfer. This complements existing features such as guidance, auto-steering, video monitoring, variable rate application control, as-applied mapping, automatic section control (ASC) and droplet size monitoring.
Integrated tip flow monitoring detects plugged or missing spray tips and provides the operator with an immediate alert on the Aeros console and an illuminated LED on the boom for easy identification of the problem. Additionally, nozzle faults are recorded and mapped on the as-applied report.
ISOBUS UT capability allows the Aeros 9040 to integrate with other ISOBUS control modules on the machine and to provide a single console display. Aeros also offers the capability of displaying both guidance and application control on a single screen, further enhancing the operator experience.
The addition of Wi-Fi connectivity allows wireless 2-way job data transfer between the machine and the farm office when used with the TeeJet Fieldware Link application.
“We’ve had some great early successes with key sprayer and spreader manufacturers worldwide and we expect these new features to accelerate that growth,” notes Rich Gould, OEM Business Manager with TeeJet Technologies.
