Raven Industries Introduces New Viper 4 Field Computer Among Other Innovations

Raven Industries Updated: 06/26/2013 @ 1:25pm Precision. Since 1978, Raven has helped create, define and redefine precision agriculture. We continue to bring groundbreaking new products to growers around the world. The purpose? To put you in control. To help you work smarter, reduce input costs and farm more efficiently. And, ultimately, to increase your yield and profitability. Simplified. You shouldn’t need a Ph.D. to use your farm equipment. That’s why Raven products are easy to operate. They’re designed to work with other Raven products and other technology brands. Raven’s simplicity and reliability make it the precision ag brand most preferred by farm machinery and equipment manufacturers.

Raven introduced new advances in precision agriculture technology including  the  highly anticipated summer release of its new Viper 4 field computer as well as other ag technology during the annual Raven Innovation Summit held June 4-5.  Over the last ten years, Raven’s line of Viper field computers has built an outstanding reputation for innovation among agricultural retailers and custom applicators.  As our most robust field computer to date, Viper 4 will not only improve how customers manage critical machine functions, but more importantly, enhance the way data collected in the field is managed and utilized.

The Viper 4 field computer features a 12.1” responsive touchscreen and sleek design with a ruggedized magnesium casing. A customizable user interface utilizing new Raven Operating Software allows users to set up machine profiles, user profiles, and grower-farm-field information, expediting job start-up and streamlining information management functionality. 
“Data management is critical to our customers’ success. Viper 4 hardware, software, and 3rd party applications will operate separate from each other, providing an open platform for data management with our Slingshot® API platform and agX™ compatibility.” said Matt Burkhart, vice president and general manager for Raven’s Applied Technology Division. 
Additional Technology Introduced at Eleventh Raven Innovation Summit.

In addition to the upcoming release of the Viper 4, Raven also announced a new partnership with AMW Machine Control, a leader in water management solutions, to further enhance their full spectrum of precision ag solutions to grow more food on less land.

Raven also released the industry’s first, patent pending, multi-hybrid planter control solution.  This new multi-hybrid system is an enhancement to Raven’s OmniRow® advanced planter control solution, and when combined with variable rate seeding, it will help increase yield potential and profitability. 

The Innovation Summit is an annual meeting hosted by Raven, that brings together key customers, dealers, OEMs, and media partners from across the globe to collaborate on how technology and innovation can help solve the great challenge of feeding the world.
