AutoFarm and Raven to release FarmPRO

Agriculture.com Staff 01/30/2008 @ 9:00am

FarmPRO combines the Viper PRO display and control system from Raven with subinch-accurate RTK AutoSteer from AutoFarm. FarmPRO offers a full-feature steering and application control system at the operator’s fingertips through a large screen display.

"What are currently multiple but separate applications – requiring multiple screens in the cab – are now integrated into a single control stream with just one terminal in the cab," says Paul Welbig, business development manager for the Flow Control Division at Raven Industries. "This all-in-one system for variable-rate control and complete boom management, along with subinch-accurate RTK steering, will simplify customers' lives in the field."

The system offers a variety of automatic steering and application control functions including:

WAAS to RTK steering accuracy options.

As-applied maps.

Variable-rate control on up to five products.

Automatic boom height control.

Automatic boom section control.

Large 10.4-inch color touch screen display.

Windows XP operating system.

Auto calibration of steering and application functions.

The FarmPRO system will be available through select dealers of both AutoFarm and Raven.
