Section 7: Key Settings/Functionality
Spinner Spreader Application Rate Control Tab
The Application tab for spinner spreader
control has several buttons and status
display areas that are specific to granular
product control. This table outlines the
details of these controls.
Press to display the Spreader Control
window and settings. These settings
include:
Spread Width
Spinner Speed (if enabled)
Product Density
Feed Gate Opening
Conveyor Rate
For more information, see Section 6 “Run
Screen Functionality Menu”.
Displays active spread pattern width.
The Auto Swath check box allows the
enable/disable of the Automatic Swath
Control functionality. (Requires an unlock
purchase).
Displays the status of the product control
channel. When the fertilizer bin is grey as
shown at the left, no product application is
taking place. When product is being
applied, the fertilizer bin icon will turn
green.
Displays the current target application rate.
Press the up arrow button to go to the
Target Rate Application window.
The Master Switch Indicator shows if the
master switch is on (green) or off (red).
The master switch is shown in the F1
position on the Auxiliary Input Settings
window.

Section 8: Controller Settings
These settings are shown in Controller Settings window, accessed via the Controller
Settings button on the Controller Tab. These settings appear on the Channel Tab.

Calibration number representing the pulses that equal one revolution of
the rate control metering system.
Servo
Setting specifies the type of control valve being used for the rate control
functions of the controlling system.
15
Determines where the control channel switches between using Valve
Response 1 and Valve Response 2 speed setting. Leaving all other valve
control settings at the default value and making a small adjustment to this
setting is usually all that is required to fine-tune system performance.
Decreasing this value will have the overall effect of speeding up
servo valve response.
Increasing this value will have the overall effect of slowing servo
valve response.
40%
Determines the speed of the servo valve when product control error
exceeds the Response Threshold setting. Valve Response 1 represents the
fast speed of the servo valve. Decreasing the value will cause the servo
valve to run slower.
8%
Determines the speed of the servo valve when product control error is less
than the Response Threshold setting. Valve Response 2 represents the
slow speed of the servo valve. Decreasing the value will cause the servo
valve to run slower.
2%
Determines the percent of error that is allowed prior to the product control
system making any flow rate changes. 2% - 3% is the normal dead band
setting range.
Too low of a setting value can cause the product control system to
continually hunt for the target application rate.
Too high of a setting will cause excessive product application
error.
60
Setting determines the maximum RPM of the conveyor that controls
product distribution to the application point.

Determines how aggressively the control valve responds when making
spinner speed adjustments. The higher the value the more aggressive
the system response is.

Zero RPM
Offset
Represents the maximum duty cycle that is sent to the control valve
without producing any hydraulic flow from the PWM valve. Using too
high of a Zero RPM Offset value can cause the spinner system to not
properly shut off. See the PWM valve manufacturer information for
recommended settings.

Section 9: Spinner Spreader
Control Settings – from Run Screen
These settings are shown in Controller Settings window, accessed via the Spinner
Control button on the Run screen.
Each of these settings described below must be set for each individual Product Channel
(bin).
Changing any of these settings in the display does not make the needed adjustments on
the product applicator. Setting value and physical setting on the spinner bed must be verified
for correctness prior to any product application.
The Spread Width, Spinner Speed, Product Density, Feed Gate 1 Opening and the
Conveyor 1 Rate are all stored with each combination of product and control channel.
Spinner Spreader Control Settings – from Run Screen
Spread Width
Use the numeric keypad to edit the value.
Spinner Speed
The spinner speed required for accurate product placement in
relation to the spread width setting.
Note: The spinner speed is controlled automatically based upon this
setting when the system uses an optional PWM spinner speed
control valve.
Product Density
This density value (shown in pounds per cubic foot, or lb./ft.3), is
stored with each product. Use the keypad to edit if needed.
Note: For proper machine performance and accuracy, you should
check the Product Density daily.
Feed Gate 1 Opening
Conveyor 1 Rate
(CFR Number)
Represents the Feed Gate opening for Conveyor 1. Measure the
depth of product on the conveyor to ensure accurate feed gate setting
value.
This setting represents the volume of product dispensed by one
revolution of the conveyor drive shaft (cubic foot per revolution, or
ft.3 /rev.) This number is shown with the assumption that the
conveyor shaft has a 1-inch gate opening. This conveyor rate
remains constant, regardless of the height of the feed gate opening.
Caution: New products will have a default CFR number the first
time they are used. You must either manually enter or perform a
CFR calibration routine for each product once that product is
created, otherwise misapplication will occur.
The Calibrate Conveyor button starts the conveyor calibration
procedure.
