OVERVIEW
Congratulations on the purchase of your new IC18 ECU built on the ISOBUS architecture. This IC18 unit has
the capability of either sprayer or NH3 control when integrated into the implement of either capability. When used
within the guidelines of the this manual, the IC18 controller will be a reliable application tool.
This manual covers the NH3 functions of the IC18 ECU. For Sprayer functions, see manual number 98-05204.
Use with your existing VT or Matrix® 570VT
• Works seamlessly and displays on any ISOBUS VT
• Easy navigation menu and data rich display
• IC18 Sprayer ECU suitable for use with NH3 and liquid fertilizer
• Automatic boom section control upgrade option
• Variable rate control available providing your VT has GPS and task control capability
• Easy navigation menu and data rich display
• Add additional ISOBUS ECUs as your needs change
• Provides basic rate control
• Standardized plugs, cables and software simplify installation and connectivity and result in true “plug and
play” technology. IC18 ECU resides on the implement, reducing hardware in the cab

OVERVIEW
BoomPilot (automatic boom section control) is
possible in combination with software built into the
IC18 Sprayer/NH3 Electronic Control Unit (ECU).
The ECU should be combined with the appropriate
cable to interface with your BoomPilot system, spray
controller and/or spraying machine for quick and easy
installation. Electronic Control Units and their related
cables are designed to control as many boom sections
as the spray controller to which they are connect, up to
a maximum of 9 boom sections.

Valve Calibration, Fine
Fine regulation value calibration allows you to regulate the speed of the pressure regulating valve to
accommodate different application needs. Operating conditions may necessitate a higher or lower response
speed for the regulating valve. This digit sets the speed for the fi ne tune adjustment in relation to a small
percentage close to the target application rate.
►If the system is too slow in finding the correct rate, the values should be increased.
►If the system is too unstable, the values should be decreased.
• To select the Valve Calibration, Fine, use the number pad or slide bar.
If your system is plumbed in a bypass mode, the valve speed number of 5 works very well in most applications.
If your system is plumbed in a throttling mode, start with a valve speed number of 3 and adjust the number
according to your application requirements. Low flow situations will require a slower response time. Adjusting
agitation volumes to accommodate the regulating valve to work in a more fully open position allows for a faster
response time, with little to no searching.
NOTE: This speed value can be adjusted to optimize system performance. If you notice that the valve seems to
“search” for the programmed application rate by cycling the pressure up and down continuously, reduce
the number until the “searching” is minimized or eliminated. Conversely, a higher number will increase the
valve response speed and speed up the rate of adjustment.

Preset Application Rates define up to five (5) target rates of product being applied per hectare/acre. These
settings will set the same for all active trips. Target rates set to “0.0” will not be included in the toggle preset target
rate options
on the Operation Screen or Home Screen.
If a switchbox is being used to control the boom sections, current target application rate can be set on the
