Automatic Section Control - Optimised Precision

Increase Income with Vicon Automatic Section Control


Vicon is offering the possibility to do automatic section control with the standard weighing spreader models, like the RO-M EW and RO-EDW models, in the medium and high segment of the market.

Get Your Yield Optimised with More Sections

“With the introduction of automatic section control software on the RO-M EW and RO-EDW weighing spreaders the number of sections will be increased from 2 wide sections (left and right) into maximum 8 smaller sections for the RO-M EW model and 16 sections for the larger TL weighing spreader. Both models are equipped with one electrical actuator on each spreading disc to control the application rate to provide optimal use of nutrients to the grass or crops. The section control of the RO-M EW or RO-EDW adjusts the dosing system by a GPS positioning system to optimise overlap and coverage with a minimum over and under dosing. This results in a better yield and a reduction of costs. With this option we offer customers who choose a weighing spreader for its accurate speed regulation the first additional benefits of ISOBUS section control (TC-SC), without going to the high end GEOSPREAD® models,“ explains Jeroen van Turenhout, Senior Product Manager.
