The controller shall offer the following features, although all will not be used and
may require optional equipment.
Tow Plow
(a)
For tow plow operations, the controller shall have the ability of
simultaneously controlling two spinners, two conveyors, and two pre-wet
units. The controller shall have a sync mode that will allow for the
synchronization of the truck spreader system and the tow plow spreader
system. In sync mode both conveyors will operate from a single knob, both
spinners will operate from a single knob, and both pre-wet units will
operate from a single knob. All nulling and calibration values, application
rates, and data logging for the tow plow spreader and truck spreader shall
be independent of each other.
Yes
No
Gate Read Back
(a)
Spreader control must be capable of reading a gate feedback signal to alert
driver when gate is out of range and inaccurate spreading may be
occurring. This requires optional feedback sensor.
Yes
No
67
Closed Loop Hydraulic Gate
(a)
The controller shall be capable of automatically controlling the opening of
the gate in response to ground speed and application rate changes through
the use of an optional hydraulic gate cylinder with built-in position sensor.
Gate positioning range shall be from fully closed to fully open and any
setting in between. Controller shall be capable of detecting whenever the
gate is fully closed and disable the conveyor output to prevent damage to
the gate.
Yes
No
Hydraulic Pressure & Temperature
(a)

The controller, as supplied, must be capable of passing data logging
information directly to a third party GPS/AVL system without having to
purchase additional equipment from the spreader controller manufacturer.
Yes
No
68
Material Calibration Verification
(a)
The controller shall have a catch test feature that will allow the user to
specify an application rate, speed driven, and time to run in order to
simulate spreading for performing calibration verifications. The controller
will use the resulting information to automatically make adjustments to the
material calibration values to ensure the most accurate material setup.
Yes
No
Temperature Read Back and Temperature Compensation
(a)
The controller shall be capable of displaying both road temperature and
ambient air temperature on screen when an external temperature sensor is
used. The controller shall be capable of automatically increasing the
application rate in response to decreasing road temperature. The rate at
which the controller increases the application shall be adjustable in the
controller’s programming.
Yes
No
Onboard Wi-Fi and GPS
(a)
The controller shall have built-in Wi-Fi and GPS for optional data
downloading. This requires optional Wi-Fi and GPS antennas only.
Yes
No
GPS Mapping with Data Logging
(a)
The controller shall be capable of loading all spreading data to a USB stick.
When the data is transferred to a PC it shall be capable of displaying all
69
spreader and route data via Google Earth without having to purchase any
mapping or data logging software. This requires an optional GPS antenna.
Yes
No
Auto Nulling
(a)
The controller shall be capable of auto nulling spinner, conveyor/auger, and
liquid channels when feedback sensors are used. Manual nulling must be
available for all circuits including cross conveyor left and right.
Yes
No
System Programming
(a)
Programming shall only be accessed by use of an encrypted USB key. All
programming shall be done by using the touch screen display. The touch
screen display shall have an on screen pop-up keyboard for ease of entering
information. The use of external programming devices, such as a laptop
computer, is not acceptable.
Yes
No
Material Set Back
(a)
When using liquid to pre-wet granular material, the controller must be
capable of cutting back the granular material by a pre-determined
percentage when the liquid is being applied. The percentage shall be
programmable.
Yes
No
70
Trip Summary Information
(a)
The controller shall display a real time trip summary log on the operator
screen. The trip summary shall include distance travelled, solid material
spread amount, and liquid material applied amount. If operating in tow
plow mode, the controller shall display a real time trip summary for both
the truck spreader and tow plow spreader.
Yes
No
On Screen Error Log
(a)
For ease of troubleshooting, the controller shall have an on screen error log
that is capable of displaying the last twenty error codes that have been
generated. The log shall be viewable without the use of a program key.
The error log shall not clear itself when the controller is powered off. The
error log can only be cleared when the proper USB key is inserted into the
USB port.
Yes
No
Data Logging
(a)
The controller, as supplied, shall be capable of event based data logging.
The controller shall log the following information: Date and Time of Event,
Event Type, Truck ID, Driver ID, Region Name, Solid Material Usage, PreWet Usage, Anti-ice Usage, Pause Distance, Blast Distance, Distance Spread,
Total Distance, Blast Amount, Number of Times Blast was Used, Gate
Position (if a gate position sensor is used), Temperature (if external
temperature sensor is used), Set Point of Spinner, Set Point of
Conveyor/Auger, Set Point of Pre-wet, and Set Point of Anti-ice. All the
information will be transferred from the spreader control to a
desktop/laptop computer via a manufacturer supplied encrypted USB drive.
71
All data logging information must be capable of being customized and
exported. Summation reports are not acceptable.
Yes
No
Software Updates
(a)
The spreader control software must be capable of being upgraded via
encrypted USB key. All software updates shall be provided free of charge
from the manufacturer. EPROM changes are not acceptable.
Yes
No
Interface Connections
