document How To Set PWM Standby Setting
Overview PWM Standby setting is only used with PWM 12volt and PWM Ground control valve configurations. It is a user defined % value representing a boom off duty cycle for the PWM pump. This allows the PWM pump to revert to this standby setting in an all boom off state. When spraying very high rates, this setting will prevent pressure spikes when all booms are off. Likewise when spraying very low rates, this setting prevents the PWM valve from closing completely, allowing the system to...

document Raven 661 Controllers and DirectCommand
The Raven 661 console was designed specifically for the Ag Chem Equipment Company and are typically found on late 1990s to early 2000s era RoGator and TerraGator machines. Although the 661 Controller uses the same 16 pin connector as the Raven 440, 450, 660, etc, there are differences that have implications on how Ag Leader DirectCommand can work with these systems. Ag Leader does not support the Raven 661. There are two solutions for DirectCommand on machines with 661 controllers: Custom Kits:...

document Q: I have a Rate Not Responding message flashing on the top of the my display. What does this mean?
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 Question: I have a Rate Not Responding message flashing on the top of the my display. What does this mean? Answer: This message will appear when you are off of your target rate according to Rate Error Alarm. This setting defaults to a threshold of 30% and timeout of 5 seconds. This means the display will alarm you with a Rate Not Responding message when you are off the target rate by 30% for more than 5 seconds. “Rate...

document Erratic Actual Rate / Can't Hold Target Rate (Control Valve Tuning)
Issue My actual rate is jumping around, why am I not able to hold the target rate? Resolution There may be multiple reasons why an applicator will not hold target rate. First, make sure the controller settings match the quick reference sheet that was provided with the installation kit. Also, make sure that the Rate Display Smoothing option is checked in Configuration Setup > Equipment Settings. Once those have been verified, we may need to ensure the flow meter or encoder is operating normally,...

document Q: Is there any reason my booms would turn on when I am turning on the headlands?
Question: Is there any reason my booms would turn on when I am turning on the headlands? Answer: There may be a gap between the first pass on the headland and the boundary that is loaded. You can run a new boundary when spraying the first pass on the headlands. You should also look at the Automatic Swath setup and make sure the option for outside the boundary is selected to turn sections off.

document Q: How do I charge the booms before taking off down the pass?
Question:  How do I charge the booms before taking off down the pass? Answer:  If the master switch is off use the manual valve control function to open the control valve. Turn on the master switch and when the monitor registers a speed the valves will open. Drive down the pass for a while and then select rate 1 or rate 2.

document Q: Why do I lose my boom pressure when slowing down for a waterway?
Question: Why do I lose my boom pressure when slowing down for a waterway? Answer: A minimum flow number should be entered under the configuration settings for the configuration being used.  To calculate this you need to find the minimum gallons flow for the tip style you are using.  This can be located on a tip chart.  Once you find that information, use it in the following equation.  Round up when you enter the value in the display.  (Minimum Flow of 1 Tip) *...
