Vicon RotaFlow RO-EDW GEOspread

GPS Controlled Intelligent Machine Solutions

The RO-EDW GEOspread is equipped with two actuators on each dosing unit. One of these actuators controls the setting of the discharge point of the dosing cup onto the disc (letter setting), the other controls the application rate. The GEOspread system makes it possible to adjust the letter setting individually for both discs electrically from the tractor cab. This means the working width can be easily adjusted quickly and accurately just by touching the ISOBUS terminal!

The Advantages:

  • RotaFlow spreading system
  • Fully automatic weighing system with unique reference sensor
  • Unique GEOspread system with two electric actuators
  • ISOBUS 11783 compatible for easy plug and play
  • Possible in combination with IsoMatch GEOcontrol

GEOspread System

When running IsoMatch GEOcontrol in addition to GEOspread you can set the RO-M/RO-EDW GEOspread more accurately. The working width will be automatically adjusted to suit the overlap and coverage using a GPS positioning system. For example, when driving in a wedge or irregular shaped field, GEOspread will start to decrease the working width step by step. GEOspread is using the section control function of the IsoMatch Tellus software which is in the IsoMatch Tellus terminal. The spreader working width is divided into a minimum of 2 metre sections (max. 24 sections on RO-EDW GEOspread and max. 14 sections on RO-M GEOspread). Not only the spreading width is adjusted, the application rate (kg/min) is also adjusted automatically to match the revised spreading width. This unique combination of working width and application rate adjustment makes the GEOspread system extremely accurate, with minimum influence on the spread pattern coefficient of variation.

The Advantages:

  • Quick and accurate spreading, due to the actuators being directly connected to the discharge point. No linkages.
  • Stable disc RPM in combination with discharge point adjustment maintains the spreading pattern (coefficient of variation)
  • Easy operation; no need to step off the tractor to adjust the working width
  • 100% ISOBUS compatible for easy operation 
  • Automatic start/stop with GPS on headlands possible

RotaFlow Spreading System

  • No impact, no fragmentation, no dust: Central release point, smooth acceleration and centrifugal force accelerates fertiliser up to disc speed before it reaches the vane.
  • Accurate spreading pattern: A double overlap spreading pattern gives unrivalled accuracy. The 8 vanes per discs are ensuring a continous flow of fertiliser to the field. This is important for high capacity spreading and forward speed.
  • Minimal wind influence, maximum tolerance: Flat discs and a horizontal flow of fertiliser give a symmetrical spreading pattern.
  • Consistent spreading pattern: Eight vanes per disc, eight sectors per revolution give an equal distribution. Double overlap spreading pattern.
  • Guaranteed accuracy on slopes: guaranteed accuracy on slopes. The fertiliser always contacts the vanes at the same point, also on slopes and travels the complete length of the vane.





FlowPilot: Easy Setting and Adjustment

  • The compact FlowPilot 'dashboard' gives you considerably simplified accurate setting and adjustment of applicaton rates. Two hydraulically operated metering plates, each with three discharge openings ensure an equal fertiliser flow from the hopper to the spreading discs.
  • The development department of Vicons spreader R&D team has its own spreader competence centre in order to allow continuous testing throughout the year. All test are carried out according to the strictest international standards and quality requirement.
  • The key to accurate spreading is matching fertiliser quality and litre weight with the spreading charts as close as possible. The RotaFlow 6 step checklist helps you to ensure consistent accuracy in all field conditions:
    1. Select fertiliser type
    2. Determine granule size and distribution
    3. Determine litre weight
    4. Select spreading table
    5. Select field settings
    6. Adjust FlowPilot system





Border Spreading

  • Vicon offers the TrimFlow system or manual/hydraulic border spreading plate for border spreading. The TrimFlow can be accurately set for all types of fertiliser and for all working widths. Operation is easy, no need to leave the tractor seat. For the RO-M is also a tramline cylinder optional available.
  • With one-side boundary spreading the tractor is driven approximately 2 metres from the field border.
  • With boundary track spreading the tractor is driving in the first tramline and is spreading to the border. The distance to the border is the half of the working width.
  • The Border Spreading Indicator (BSI), indicates which border spreading device is active.





Weighing System

  • Continuous dynamic "online - calibration" with high frequency communication signal.
  • Vicons unique reference sensor technology: all negative influences are automatically corrected and eliminated, ensuring utmost spreading accuracy even on hill sides. The Vicon reference sensor gives you absolute accuracy, because every kilo counts!
  • Load cells in combination with the unique reference sensor:
    - Auto calibrating and continuous weighing system
    - Automatic correction on slopes
    - Automatic correction of shocks, even on rough terrain
    - Automatic speed related dosing system
    - No calibration test needed
  • Highest accuracy in all conditions: even spreading quality guaranteed! Save costs and increase quality! 





ISOBUS Control

  • ISOBUS intelligence: Standard on Our Weighing Spreaders 
    You are ensured of the ISOBUS compatibiliy from tractor to the spreader and spreader to tractor, meaning that all data collection from your spreader is centralised and can be easily transferred to your (tractor)terminal in the tractor cabin. Easy plug and play!
  • IsoMatch Tellus GO:
    The IsoMatch Tellus GO is a Universal ISOBUS Terminal. This multifunctional one-screen terminal has been developed for fast and simple control of any ISOBUS implement, giving the farmer a 'custom made' experience as it suits all needs for simple and efficient handling of farming machinery and tasks. 
  • IsoMatch Tellus terminal:
    The IsoMatch Tellus is the first Universal Terminal with the capability to view and operate 2 different ISOBUS interfaces at once. This allows for example direct control of 2 implements at the same time for continuous observation of a camera view, without switching screen.
    • Large 12,1" colour touch-screen
    • Intuitive operation
    • Basic DOC registration program to save operational information directly to USB
    • Four USB slots for easy data exchange, wireless USB stick or USB to serial cable for additional sensors
    • Build in PDF reader
    • RS232 connection for GPS receivers or sensors
    • Internet connection via a wireless USB stick or router
    • Integrated web browser

AutosetApp

With the AutosetApp you have always the most up to date settings for your weighing spreader available. The AutosetApp is an App (software application) available on the IsoMatch Tellus terminal. The AutosetApp is standard integrated into the IsoMatch Tellus GEOcontrol software. This App connects the IsoMatch Tellus terminal directly with the RO-M or RO-EDW GEOspread weighing spreader and will automatically adjust the spreader according to the settings entered into the App. The AutosetApp will also work in combination with the RO-M EW and EDW, with the exception being for those spreaders the discharge point (letter setting) still needs to be adjusted manually on the spreader itself.

The Vicon fertiliser spreader database with the most up to date spreading charts is always available online. The AutosetApp can connect to the fertiliser spreading database in two different ways. You can connect it to the online database via the IsoMatch Wireless WIFI USB adapter or download the most actual database from the internet website www.viconspreadingcharts.com on an USB stick and upload the database directly into the IsoMatch Tellus terminal.
