PSR Tactile Row Guidance (PSR TAC) from Reichhardt Electronic Innovations uses tactile sensors for accuracy and durability in corn and adapts the proven TAC row guidance solution used for over 10 years on combines to self-propelled sprayers. TAC row guidance maximizes acres covered for late season nitrogen application.
TAC row guidance provides automatic steering in 20, 22 and 30 inch corn rows without the requirement of GPS correction. When corn reaches a height of 3-4 feet, the flexible sensors are activated by contacting the crop. Two sensor sets are used on sprayers to read four corn rows to optimize accuracy. The tactile sensors compensate for planter movement by sensing where the corn emerged and then follows directly in the row reducing crop damage.
The PSR ISO iBox navigation controller allows the user interface to be accessible on a virtual terminal (VT). The PSR Gap Detection feature detects when a planter skip or water way is encountered and maintains the steering position to stay in the row. The optional PSR Combi-Mode feature allows for GPS guidance into the next pass and then switches 100% to row sensing for optimal performance.
