Setting up the field-iq plugin
Before starting
Features tab
Before configuring the Field-IQ plugin setup on the FmX integrated
display, ensure that:
• All components of the system are installed on the vehicle and
implement.
• The Field-IQ plugin has been added to the FmX integrated
display configuration.
From the Home screen, tap the Run icon.
Next to Implement, tap Edit. The Configuration screen appears.
Ensure that the Field-IQ icon appears in the list.
If the icon does not appear tap Add/Remove to add the plugin
to the configuration.
• The implement setup has the correct option selected.
From the Home screen, tap the Run icon.
Next to Implement, tap Edit. The Configuration screen appears.
Select the implement from the list on the left and then tap
Setup. The Implement Setup screen appears.
In the Operations tab, select the correct option:
–– For Liquid, select the Liquid option.
–– For Granular Fertilizer, select the Granular Fertilizer option.
–– For Anhydrous, select the Anhydrous option.
Tap OK.
Note: For additional information on settings, select the help icon
in the top right hand corner of the screen.
Select the following:
1. Application Type.
2. Section Switching:
On: Automatic Section Control is active.
Off: Automatic Section Control is not active.
3. Rate Control:
On: Rate Control is active.
Off: Rate Control is not active.
4. Implement Lift:
Enabled: Implement switch controls coverage logging.
Disabled: Implement switch is not used.
5. Anhydrous Units:
When Anhydrous is selected for the application type, select the
units that you want to control the rate by. Select either Lbs
Actual N or Lbs NH3.
Boom tab
1. Section Control Type:
Air Clutch: Using Tru Count Air Clutches® valves.
Electric Clutch: Using Tru Count electric section clutches.
Boom Valve: Using standard polarity boom valves.
Reverse Polarity: Using reverse polarity boom valves.
Caution – Selecting the incorrect value causes the system
to operate opposite of the required result.
2. Sections Off When Stopped:
Yes: Turns off sections when the GPS speed is zero
(recommended).
No: Sections remian active when the GPS speed is zero.
3. On Latency:
Default value is 0.0 seconds. Increase the On Latency value to
compensate for mechanical delay in the system (more common
for larger systems).
4. Off Latency:
Default value is 0.0 seconds. Increase the Off Latency value to
compensate for mechanical delay in the system (more common
for larger systems).

Rate tab
Hardware tab
The Rate tab is only visible if you have at least one Field-IQ Rate
and Section Control Module installed.
1. Rate 1 and Rate 2 fields:
Enter the rate to be used when the Rate Switch on the Field-IQ
Master Switch box is in the Rate 1 or Rate 2 position.
2. Rate Adjust field:
Increment to be used each time you press the Increment/
Decrement switch on the Master Switch Box or display.
3. Rate Snapping list:
Enabled: Shows the applied rate the same as the target rate (if
the applied rate is within 10% of the target rate).
Disabled: Shows the actual applied value.
4. Total Nozzles:
Enter the total number of nozzles on the applicator (do not
include fence row nozzles).
Note – The numbers beneath each switch are the number of
sections assigned to the switch. In this example, switch 1 controls
rows 1 through 2, switch 2 controls rows 3 through 4, and so on.
The numbers are assigned automatically and cannot be changed.
If you are use the optional 12 section switch box, you will see 12
instead of 6 switches.
1. Adjust the width value for each rate control module by tapping
the Width box and entering the appropriate value.
2. To adjust the sections value for each section control module, tap
the Sections box. Enter the appropriate value and then tap OK.
3. Verify that the serial numbers of the modules match the order
that the modules are mounted on the implement.
Tank/Bin tab
The Tank/Bin tab is only visible if at least one Field-IQ Rawson™ or
Rate and Section control module is installed. Select the following:
1. Tank/Bin Capacity:
Total tank/bin capacity.
2. Warning Level:
Level at which you will receive notification when the capacity
level drops below the assigned value.
3. Current Volume:
Current volume of the tank/bin.
Tips
–– Tap Refill Tank/Bin to set the current volume to the tank/
bin capacity.
–– Tap Manual Flush to open the control valve and allow the
system to operate at a preset speed. Use this feature to
flush the booms or prime the system.
Sections tab
1. Enter the number of rows controlled for each section.
2. If the implement has more than 12 sections, use the buttons
below the 12 section fields to scroll to the other sections.
Override tab
1. Jump Start Speed:
Controls the speed to be used when the Master switch is put
in the jump start position.
2. Minimum Override Speed:
This setting maintains the application rate when the actual
speed drops below the value entered. It is used to ensure
consistent material flow during slow speeds that may reach the
physical limitations of the system.

Calibrating the rawson modules
Planter calibration
The Field-IQ Calibrate option only appears on the Configuration
screen if you have at least one Field-IQ Rawson control module
installed.
1. From the Configuration screen, select the Field-IQ plugin and
then tap Calibrate.

gear ratio and then tap OK. The Calibration Constant field
contains a calculated value that the system determines during
calibration. To start out, Trimble recommends that you leave
the value at 1.000. After the calibration test, the system may
adjust this number.
6. Place a clean empty container under the rows that contain
seeds to capture the seeds dispensed during the calibration.
warning – Moving parts during this operation. Ensure
that the implement is safe to operate.
