BoomPilot records the GPS location and the location of the applied areas in a field. When a section of a sprayer boom overlaps one of the applied areas, BoomPilot automatically switches that boom section off. When the boom re-enters the unapplied area, the boom section is turned on once again. This automation helps operators more efficiently apply on point rows, on curved rows and at the end of each pass.
“Automatic on and off control of sprayer booms sections is becoming much more critical in spraying and spreading applications today,” says Jim Shone, Sales Director for TeeJet Technologies. “The BoomPilot reduces overlap and saves money,” he continues, “on material inputs, fuel, time and operator fatigue.” BoomPilot offers automatic boom shut-off with the capability of controlling up to 15 boom sections, independent of one another. The product is an add-on device to existing GPS guidance systems or receivers and can be used in conjunction with most third party rate controls.
