RDS Technology, providers of precision monitoring, measuring and control systems for mobile machinery will be exhibiting the latest developments of their enhanced range of totally integrated precision solutions covering a wide cross-section of the industry from spreading, seeding, harvesting, baling and on-board weighing applications.
For all the latest precision farming developments visit Precision Farming 2015 on March 4th at Newark Showground off the A1 trunk road. Details and ticket offer at:
A user-friendly, on-board weighing system that can be retrofitted onto compact wheeled loaders, telescopic handlers, forklifts, skidsteer and tractor loaders. Suitable for use with up to 10 different attachments e.g. buckets or forks, the system is used for trailer & hopper loading, batch blending or check-weighing incoming goods. The system provides data storage via SD card reader and USB 2.0 host allowing quick, safe and efficient uploading and downloading of data.
With increasing demand for accurate and consistent application of farm yard manure and granular fertilizer, RDS has developed the isocan Apollo system that will control the floor conveyor speed of the spreader proportional to forward speed. Dynamic calibration from on-board loadcells enables the system to maintain accuracy irrespective of product density changes. This complete control provides spreading accuracy but also simplifies operation for the user. The isocan also contains 2x camera inputs along with GPS Guidance and VRA capabilities.
After successful field testing in the Autumn of 2014 the isocan Artemis electric drive system for seed drills is now fully available, and optionally for Spring 2015 will also offer integrated blockage functionality with sensors supplied by RDS. The optical sensors mounted in the air pipes will monitor seed flow and provide an alarm to the operator in the event of a blockage. In conjunction with the electric metering drive this makes for a comprehensive control and monitoring system for the modern seed drill.
It is increasingly important for the farm management process to know exactly how crops are yielding. Using the well proven, accurate and reliable optical yield measurement technique, the iSOCeres builds on the popular PSi Ceres to provide the combine OEM yield monitoring via any compliant ISOBUS UT. Data is presented on the UT with the Ceres Object Pool loaded from the ISOCeres ECU. Yield mapping will be supported by the integrated ISOBUS TC GEO within the terminal.
Also on show will be the Psi Ceres yield monitor for combine harvesters, the Delta 34i regulation system for sprayers and the Artemis variable rate control and monitoring system for seed drills.
