PF3000 and PF3000 Pro – Quick Reference Setup Instructions for TeeJet 844 controller – April 2003
Note: These instructions pertain to PF firmware versions 4.00 or
higher.
Note: Serial cable part number 2000952 (labeled Rawson Serial
Cable) is available from Ag Leader to connect the TeeJet844 to
port3 of the PF. The PC cable that comes standard with a PF will
also work.
Settings for TeeJet 844 controller

Ground Speed Sensor: Set to SERIAL or GPS. Serial is recommended.
App Distance From GPS: Set to distance between where product exits
applicator and position of GPS antenna on vehicle. Example: If spray
boom is 20 feet behind GPS antenna set to 20 ft back.
Full Swath: Ignore setting. Swath comes from serial port of controller.
Tgt Units:Contrler Units: Normally set to 1:1.0000. This ratio is used to
convert the units in a target file (.tgt) to the units of application.
Example: Tgt file in pints/ac of Treflan, controller applies gallons/ac. If
tank mix is 1 pint of Treflan / 10 gallon water, then set to 1:10.0000.
Target Rate Increment: Determines increment value by which you can
change the manual target rate with each press of Up or Down arrow keys.
Actual Rate Scale Factor: Use chart below for setting.

simultaneously. While holding the + and – keys in, depress the Pro key
twice (within 3 seconds), and release to enter System Setup Mode.
Follow through the menu’s until you see “no CON”. Set this item to
“GPS” for Global Positioning Communication Capability. If a
communications feature is selected, you must exit the setup mode, power
down the console then restart the console. This will activate the selected
communication feature.
Setting the Target Rate
The display item “Target Rate” must be displayed on the main screen to
set the rate.
Arrow symbols on the line displaying target rate indicate that this display
item is selected for changing. Press the key to the right of the line
displaying target rate if you do not see these arrows. Press it again to
deselect the line (remove the box) but keep the arrow symbols.
You can either set a manual rate or use a target file to automatically
control the rate based on the vehicle position in the field.
Setting a manual rate
a) Press Right Arrow key to highlight “man” (“m” if viewing on screen
map).
b) Use the Up or Down Arrow keys to set the manual rate.
c) If you want to change how much the rate changes with each arrow
press refer to step 1 on other side of sheet and edit the “Target Rate
Increment” setting.
Using a target file and setting an automatic rate
a) Press Left Arrow key to highlight “auto” (“a” if viewing on screen
map).
b) You must have a target file (.tgt) selected for the field, otherwise the
PF will not control the rate of the controller. Refer to step 4 on other
side on how to set the Target File.
You can switch between auto and man whenever you are on the main
screen and Target Rate is selected for changing.
Setting the PF to NOT control the rate (record rate only)
Set the Target Rate to “auto” and leave the Target File setting on
“NONE”.
Area Counting
The area count switch (located on bottom right of front panel) must be up and
controller must start applying for area to be on.
