WindControl – reduction in the influence of the wind

For an optimum spread pattern in difficult wind conditions

Both the wind speed and wind direction are displayed in the terminal

WindControl enables the effect of the wind on the spread pattern to be permanently monitored and automatically compensated for. A high-frequency wind sensor mounted on the machine records both the wind speed and the wind direction and transmits this information to the job computer. The delivery system and the spreading disc speed are then automatically adjusted. WindControl thereby extends the time windows for fertiliser spreading under the effects of the wind

The following practical advantages are provided:

  • Compensation for the effects of the wind under difficult wind conditions
  • Larger time windows for spreading
  • Warning to the driver in particularly strong winds and when compensation is not possible

Automatic compensation for the effect of the wind according to Prof. Dr. Karl Wild of the University of Applied Sciences, Dresden
