INTRODUCTION
The Raven SCS 460 3 Tier Driver (SPRAYER CONTROL SYSTEM) is designed to improve the uniformity
of spray applications. Its performance relies on the installation and preventive maintenance of the
complete sprayer. It is important that this Installation and Service Manual be reviewed thoroughly before
operating the system. This manual provides a simple step-by-step procedure for installing and operating.
The SCS 460 3 Tier Driver system consists of a computer-based Control Console, a Speed Sensor, a
turbine type Flow Meter, a motorized Control Valve, a Pressure Sensor, and a Tier Driver Interface Box.
The Console mounts directly in the cab of the vehicle for easy operator use. The Radar Speed Sensor is
mounted to the frame of the vehicle or implement (wheel drive and speedometer Drive Speed Sensors are
also available.) The motorized Control Valve, Flow Meter, Pressure Sensor, and Tier Driver Interface Box
mount to the framework supporting the boom valves. Appropriate cabling is furnished for field installation.
The operator sets the target volume per area to be sprayed and the SCS 460 automatically maintains the
flow regardless of vehicle speed or gear selection. A manual override switch allows the operator to
manually control flow for system check-out and spot spraying. Actual volume per area being applied is
displayed at all times. The SCS 460 3 Tier Driver additionally functions as an area monitor, speed monitor,
and volume totalizer.
The 3 Tier Driver ability of the SCS 460 will turn on and off different sets of nozzle tiers in order to maintain
system pressure as flow increases or decreases. This feature allows for a steady spray pattern. The
console will control the tiers through the Tier Driver Interface Box either manually or automatically based
on the system pressure. The operator sets maximum and minimum system pressure trigger points for
which the automatic mode will sequence tiers up and down.
NOTE:
The SCS 460 3 Tier Driver Control Console is designed to be used with
external Boom switches. In order for the Console to know when and which
Boom is ON or OFF, Boom signal wires are provided.

INITIAL SYSTEM SET-UP
1)
Fill tank with water only. (If positive displacement pump is used, open pressure relief valve, PRV).
2)
Place MASTER ON/OFF switch to ON and BOOM ON/OFF switches to OFF.
3)
Place RATE 1/RATE 2/MAN switch to MAN.
4)
Place POWER ON/OFF switch to ON.
5)
Verify that Boom Widths, SPEED CAL, METER CAL, VALVE CAL, and RATE CALS have been
entered correctly into the Console. In SELF TEST mode, enter the normal sprayer operating speed.
Under DATA MENU, verify tier control is in manual mode (TIER MAN) and all 3 tiers are on.
6)
Run pump at normal operating RPM.
7)
If centrifugal pump is used, proceed with Step 8. If positive displacement pump is used, set
pressure relief valve (PRV) to 65 PSI [450 kPa].
8)
Verify that boom valves operate and that no nozzles are plugged by operating the BOOM ON/OFF
switches.
9)
Place all BOOM ON/OFF switches to ON.
10)
Hold the FLOW CONTROL switch in INC position until pressure is at its maximum. This assures
that the motorized Control Valve is fully open. Verify maximum pressure and RATE.
11)
Adjust agitator line hand valve for desired agitation. Verify maximum pressure is still present.
12)
Hold the FLOW CONTROL switch to DEC position until pressure is at its minimum. This assures
that the motorized Control Valve is fully closed. Verify minimum pressure and RATE. If minimum
pressure and RATE can not be obtained, consider by-pass plumbing system in Appendix 3.
28
INITIAL SYSTEM FIELD TEST
1)
Drive down field or road at target speed with sprayer booms off, to verify SPEED readout on
Console.
2)
Turn on sprayer and booms and place the RATE 1/RATE 2/MAN switch to RATE 1. Increase or
decrease speed by one MPH [2 km/h]. The system should automatically correct to the target
application rate.
3)
If for any reason, the system is unable to correct to the desired RATE, check for an empty tank, a
plugged line, a malfunctioning pump, improper vehicle speed, or a defect in the system.
4)
If the system does not appear to be correcting properly, first review INITIAL SYSTEM SET-UP, then
refer to TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE.
5)
At the end of each row, switch the MASTER ON/OFF to OFF to shut off flow. This also shuts off
the area totalizer.
6)
Verify area covered and volume used.
PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE
Preventive maintenance is most important to assure long life of the system. The following maintenance
procedures should be followed on a regular basis:
1)
Flush entire system with water after use of suspension type chemicals. Failure to clean system can
result in crystallization of chemicals which may plug the Flow Meter, lines, and/or tips.
2)
Flush and drain sprayer before storing. FREEZING TEMPERATURES MAY DAMAGE FLOW
METER IF WATER IS NOT DRAINED.
3)
Remove Flow Meter at the end of each spraying season. Clean Flow Meter turbine and inlet hub.
Clean off all metal filings and wettable powders which have hardened on the plastic and metal parts.
Check the inlet hub and turbine assembly for worn or damaged turbine blades and bearings. Flush
Flow Meter with clear water and drain.
KEEP FROM FREEZING
4)
Remove Console when not in use for extended periods.

APPENDIX 1
WHEEL DRIVE SPEED SENSOR INSTALLATION AND
CALIBRATION PROCEDURE
1.
MOUNTING WHEEL DRIVE SPEED SENSOR
The Wheel Drive Speed Sensor consists of four magnets, a switch assembly with cable, and
mounting hardware.
Sequence of mounting Speed Sensor:
l)
Select a non-driven wheel (left front tractor wheel or implement wheel).
2)
Check for predrilled holes in rim. If not predrilled, see "RIM DRILLING INSTRUCTIONS FOR
WHEEL DRIVE SPEED SENSOR".
3)
Mount the four magnets to the inside of rim and tighten (See Figures below). Magnets must be
mounted in alternating red-black order.
4)
Mount switch assembly to stationary column with the hardware provided (See below). The switch
assembly need not pivot with the wheel.
SWITCH ASSEMBLY
MAGNET ASSEMBLY
MAGNET LOCATION
5)
Position switch assembly so that as the wheel rotates the magnets pass across the center of the
black, molded switch assembly.
6)
Clearance gap between magnets and switch assembly must be between 1/4 inch [6 mm] and 1 inch
[25 mm]. With wheels pointed straight ahead, rotate wheel to ensure gap is correct. Make sure
vehicle wheels can be turned to their extremes in each direction without the magnets hitting the
switch assembly.
7)
Tighten switch assembly bracketry.
8)
Secure cable to column with plastic cable ties.
33
2.
RIM DRILLING INSTRUCTIONS FOR WHEEL DRIVE SPEED
SENSOR MAGNETS
On wheels which do not have pre-punched mounting holes, proceed as follows:
RIMS WITH FOUR OR EIGHT HOLE STUD PATTERN:
Choose stud holes that are opposite each other as shown below. Using the center of opposite holes, scribe
two lines on the rim web to divide the circumference into four equal parts. Measure in one inch from the outer
edge of the web on each of the lines drawn. Mark this point as the center. Drill four 1/2" holes for mounting
the magnets.
NOTE:
Distance (D) between each set of drilled holes must be equal within 1/8 [3 mm] to
ensure accuracy of system.
RIMS WITH SIX HOLE STUD PATTERN:
Locate the center of the holes to be drilled by using the rim webbing as a guide. Obtain a small piece of wood
and cut to fit exactly over the web as shown. Measure the length of the piece of wood and mark the center
on one edge. Using the center mark on the piece of wood, mark each of the four webs. Measure in one inch
from the outer edge of the web on each of the lines drawn. Mark this point as center and drill four 1/2" holes
for mounting the magnets.
NOTE:
Distance (D) between each set of drilled holes must be equal within 1/8" [3 mm]
to ensure accuracy of system.
EIGHT HOLE STUD PATTERN
SIX HOLE STUD PATTERN
34
3.
CALCULATING "SPEED CAL"
1)
Place a chalk mark or tape onto the vehicle tire that the Speed Sensor mounted to it as shown below.
2)
Mark the initial spot on the ground.
3)
Drive vehicle straight ahead counting 10 full revolutions of the wheel. The mark must stop at the
same position it was in when the vehicle started.
4)
Measure the distance from the ground starting mark to stopping mark in inches [dm] (Round off
fractions).
5)
Write down this distance as the SPEED CAL number; keep it for future reference when
programming the Console.
NOTE:
This measurement is critical to the performance of the Console. MEASURE
CAREFULLY. Be sure tire is properly inflated before measuring. Measure tire
in type of soil in which you will be spraying. Circumference of tire will vary when
measured in soft soil versus hard packed soil. For best results, measure several
times and average the results.
Large tires and very low speed applications may require additional magnets to insure accurate speed
readings. Any even number of magnets may be used as long as they are of alternating color and equally
spaced. After calculating "SPEED CAL", this number must be adjusted according to the number of
magnets used.
Normal Number of Magnets
Actual Number of Magnets
Example:
4
6
x Speed Cal = Adjusted Speed Cal
x 1200 = 800
SCS 330, SCS 500 and SCS 550 normally use two magnets. All other consoles normally
use four magnets.
35
APPENDIX 2
SPEEDOMETER DRIVE SPEED SENSOR INSTALLATION
AND CALIBRATION PROCEDURE
1.
MOUNTING THE SPEEDOMETER DRIVE SPEED SENSOR
1)
Remove the existing speedometer cable from the back of the vehicle speedometer. Pull cable
through fire wall into engine compartment.
2)
Install adapter and key on speedometer cable and connect to Transducer Assembly. (Some units
do not use adapter and key).
3)
Connect Extension Cable to Transducer Assembly.
4)
Push Extension Cable through fire wall and re-install on speedometer.
5)
Connect the cable on the Transducer Assembly to the Console.
6)
Secure all cables with plastic cable ties.

36
2.
CALCULATING "SPEED CAL"
1)
Complete "INITIAL CONSOLE PROGRAMMING" before doing this procedure.
2)
Enter “0” in key labelled
3)
Enter a SPEED CAL of 612 [155] in key labelled
4)
Drive 1 mile [1 km].
CAUTION:
5)
.
.
Do not use vehicle odometer to determine distance. Use section lines or
Highway markers.
Read DISTANCE by depressing key labelled
.
a)
DISTANCE should read a value of approximately 5280 [1000]. If it reads between 52005350 [990-1010], the SPEED CAL for your vehicle is 612 [155].
b)
If the DISTANCE display reads any other value, perform the following calculation:
Multiply the SPEED CAL by the target distance reading, then divide the sum by the actual
value in DISTANCE display. This will give you the corrected value to enter for SPEED CAL.
You must round off to the nearest 3 digit whole number.
EXAMPLE:
=
SPEED CAL = 612 [155]
Target distance reading = 5280 [1000]
Assume the actual DISTANCE display reads 5000 [980]
ENGLISH UNITS:
612 x 5280 = 646.3
5000
METRIC UNITS:
= [155] x [1000] = [158.1]
[980]
The corrected number to enter for SPEED CAL is 646 [158].
6)
Enter the number calculated for SPEED CAL.
7)
Verify the corrected SPEED CAL number calculated above:
a)
Zero out the DISTANCE display as in Step 2.
b)
Enter the corrected SPEED CAL number as in Step 3.
c)
Repeat Steps 4 and 5a. If DISTANCE value does not read correctly repeat Steps 5b, 6, and
7.

APPENDIX 3
ALTERNATE BY-PASS LINE PLUMBING SYSTEM
FIGURE 11
INITIAL SYSTEM SET-UP
Plumb the system as shown in Figure 11. Adjust as follows:
Install Polarity Reversal Jumper in motorized Control Valve Cable (P/N 115-0159-415).
1)
Fill tank with water only.
2)
Place MASTER ON/OFF switch to ON and BOOM ON/OFF switches to OFF.
3)
Place AUTO/MAN/OFF switch to MAN, and POWER ON/OFF to ON.
4)
Verify that Boom Widths, SPEED CAL, METER CAL, VALVE CAL and RATE CALS have been
entered correctly into the Console. In SELF TEST mode enter the normal sprayer operating speed.
Under DATE MENU, verify tier control is in manual mode (TIER MAN) and all 3 tiers are on.
5)
With pump not running, fully open main line hand valve, fully open by-pass #1 hand valve, and
completely close agitator line hand valve. If positive displacement pump is used, fully open
pressure relief valve, PRV.
6)
Run pump at normal operating RPM.
7)
If centrifugal pump is used, proceed with Step 8. If positive displacement pump is used, proceed
as follows:
a)
Place MASTER ON/OFF switch to OFF.
b)
Close by-pass #1 hand valve.
c)
Set PRV to 65 psi [450 kPa].
d)
Open by-pass #1 hand valve.
e)
Place MASTER ON/OFF switch to ON.
38
8)
Verify that each boom valve operates and that no nozzles are plugged by operating the BOOM ON/
OFF switches.
9)
Place all BOOM ON/OFF switches to ON.
10)
Hold the FLOW CONTROL switch to INC position for approximately 12 seconds. This assures
motorized Control Valve is fully closed. Verify maximum pressure and RATE.
11)
Adjust agitator line hand valve for desired agitation.
12)
Close the main line hand valve, if necessary, to set the desired maximum operating pressure.
Maximum pressure should be approximately 10 psi [70 kPa] above normal spraying pressure.
EXAMPLE: If normal spraying pressure is 30 psi [210kPa], set maximum pressure at approximately
40 psi [280 kPa].
13)
Hold the MAN ADJ switch to DEC position for approximately 12 seconds. This assures motorized
Control Valve is fully open.
14)
Close by-pass #1 hand valve to set the desired minimum operating pressure. Minimum pressure
should be approximately one half the normal spraying pressure.
EXAMPLE: If normal spraying pressure is 30 psi [210 kPa], set minimum pressure at approximately
15 psi [105 kPa].
15)
Verify maximum and minimum pressures and RATE by repeating Steps 11 and 14.
INITIAL SYSTEM FIELD TEST
1)
Drive down field or road at target speed with sprayer booms OFF, to verify SPEED readout on
Console.
2)
Turn on sprayer and booms and place the MAN/AUTO switch to AUTO. Increase or decrease
speed by one (1) MPH [2 km/h]. The system should automatically correct to the target application
rate.
3)
If for any reason, the system is unable to correct to the desired RATE, check for an empty tank, a
plugged line, a malfunctioning pump, improper vehicle speed or a defect in the system.
4)
If the system does not appear to be correcting properly, first review INITIAL SYSTEM SET-UP, then
refer to TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE.
5)
At the end of each row, switch the MASTER ON/OFF to OFF to shut off flow. This also shuts off
the area totalizer.
6)
Verify area covered and volume used.
