NORAC Systems International Inc., a developer of control equipment for the agricultural industry, announced on Feb. 11 that it has released Active Wing Roll, a boom height control technology for sprayers. It is now available for John Deere R-Series sprayers.
Active Wing Roll acts similarly to NORAC’s Active Roll, which was originally introduced for extreme terrain. Unlike Active Roll, which requires a specific boom design, Active Wing Roll can be applied to a wide variety of sprayer center section designs, including pendulum and rigid booms.
“This patent pending technology is an exciting movement forward in the industry,” said Jason Griffith, vice president of technology at NORAC. “Controlling center section roll, or in this case simulating center section roll, is the future of automatic boom height control.”
John Deere self-propelled sprayers are designed to take on numerous types of terrain, covering more acreage in a shorter amount of time. The R-Series sprayers now have precision application and intuitive controls for the optimal operator experience.
The Active Wing Roll for John Deere R-Series sprayers offers the same performance that was previously offered with Active Roll.
“This creative new concept will provide the functionality our customers have come to expect with Active Roll, but for a broader range of sprayers,” said Danea Armstrong, vice president of Sales, Marketing & Service at NORAC. “The result is remarkable control in the most challenging terrain.”
NORAC plans to released Active Wing Roll as a factory option in the coming months.
