Don't just hope your fertilizer is making it
Fertilizer blockages and reduced flows can become a nightmare, especially if you didn’t know it was happening.
Fertilize with Confidence!
Intelligent Ag Recon® SpreadSense Monitor
Dry Fertilizer Application
Recon SpreadSense® is the industry’s first blockage monitor for floaters. Utilizing the same acoustic technology developed for other Recon monitoring systems, Recon SpreadSense® provides reliable real-time blockage detection.
The Intelligent Ag Recon SpreadSense® will tell you exactly how your fertilizer is flowing in each run. When a blockage happens, you’ll be alerted immediately - giving you a chance to clear it right away and get back to fertilizing with confidence.
No more skips. No more guessing.
Here's how it works
Accoustic sensors mounted on the back of each deflector listen to the material flow and transmit the signal through auditory tubes.
This data is collected by the electronic control unit (ECU) which relays the information to the gateway.
Information arrives via Wi-Fi and gets displayed on an Apple iPad® warning you of any blockages in your system in real-time.
If there is a blockage or even a decrease in flow anywhere in the system, you'll know.
Blockage Monitoring for Floaters
Using a simple adhesive the acoustic sensors are easy to install on the back of each deflector, so there is no disruption to product flow.
The acoustic sensors listen to the material flow and send sound pulses through auditory tubes, similar to a stethoscope. The data is collected by the Electronic Control Unit (ECU), which displays the information on an iPad® in the cab. If there’s a blockage anywhere in the system, you’ll know.
Ensure even distribution of product across your floater, and increase your efficiency by not having to visually detect flow issues.
