Radion 8140 Automatic Sprayer Control

CHAPTER 1 – INTRODUCTION

Designed with simplicity in mind, Radion 8140 offers spraying advantages not found in other controllers. Setting the target application rate and the unique VisiFlo ® display on the controller helps select the right TeeJet tip for the application. Once spraying begins, the large display shows application rate, volume sprayed, system pressure, sprayer speed, and area covered. Radion 8140’s built-in planning tool automatically displays the available speed range for the target rate and spray tip that have been selected. Radion 8140 may be used as an individual controller or in combination with CAN bus technology using Matrix ® Pro and BoomPilot ® to add automated boom section control.

The fertilizer’s ability to flow is affected by a number of factors.

These factors may vary with each batch and it may change due to weather (humidity, etc.). In order to accommodate for this, the job computer uses a density factor to compensate for the nature of the applied fertilizer.

The default value of “1.00” corresponds with the specific gravity of water and is correct for most pesticide applications. Occasionally some spray solutions, such as fertilizer, have different densities.

If using such a material, a new value should replace the default value. The chart to the below can help determine the specific gravity of other solutions.

Parameters screen.

Figure 3-14: Regulation Parameters

Coarse Valve Calibration

Coarse regulation value calibration allows regulating the setting of the regulating valve to accommodate different application needs.

Operating conditions may necessitate a higher or lower response setting for the regulating valve. This value adjusts the setting for coarse adjustments in relation to a large percentage outside of the target application rate. Range is 0 to 19.

►If the system is too slow in finding the correct rate, values should be increased

►If the system is too unstable, values should be decreased

TIPS: If the system is plumbed in a bypass mode, valve setting number 9 works very well in most applications.

If the system is plumbed in a throttling mode, start with valve setting number 3 and adjust the number according to application requirements.

Low flow situations 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: Adjust the setting valve to optimize system performance.

If the valve seems to “search” for the programmed application rate by continuously cycling pressure up/ down, reduce the number until “searching” is minimized or eliminated. Conversely, a higher number increases the valve response time and “speeds up” the rate of adjustment.

Fine Valve Calibration

Fine regulation value calibration allows setting the regulating valve to accommodate different application needs. Operating conditions may necessitate a higher or lower response setting for the regulating valve. Fine valve calibration adjusts the setting for the fine tune adjustment in relation to a small percentage close to the target application rate. Range is 0 to 9.

►If the system is too slow in finding the correct rate, increase values.

►If the system is too unstable, decrease values.

TIPS: If the system is plumbed in a bypass mode, valve setting number 5 works very well in most applications.

If the system is plumbed in a throttling mode, start with a valve setting number 3 and adjust the number according to application requirements.

Low flow situations require a slower response time.

Adjusting agitation volumes to accommodate the regulating valve, to work in a more fully open position, allows for faster response time with little to no searching.

NOTE: This setting value can be adjusted to optimize system performance. If the valve seems to “search” for the programmed application rate by continuously cycling the pressure up/down, reduce the number until “searching” is minimized or eliminated. Conversely, a higher number increases the valve response time and “speeds up” the rate of adjustment.

Tip Spacing

Tip Spacing establishes the distance between the tips on the boom. Range is 4 to 7,874 inches / 10 to 19,999 centimeters.

Regulation Mode

Regulation Mode determines if the rate control is pressure based or flow based.

Number of Sections

Number of Sections establishes how many sections are on the implement. Range is 1 to 13, depending on console availability.

Nine (9) switch consoles are capable of supporting up to 13 boom sections. The boom sections are paired across the nine (9) switches but will work as individual sections in ASC mode. Contact TeeJet

Support for more information.

NOTE: Although the Number of Sections range is 1 to 13, the max. number of physical switches are still nine (9). See the

"Boom section & switches" section of this manual for more information.

NOTE: The Target Rate is based upon the active boom width. The boom width is calculated from referencing the Number of

Sections, the Number of Tips per Section, and the space between the tips. Console operation is based upon the active width so the active sections will determine the width the controller will target.

Paired sections is used to customize section pairings. This setting is only available with the nine (9) switch console. The number of pairing options directly depends on the number of sections established.

Circulation

Circulation establishes if flow in the boom is increased to help keep product suspended in the system. Based on the restrictor plate value, the circulation flow will be subtracted from the measured flow so that the console knows exactly what is sprayed or returned to the tank.

◄None – no circulation

◄Semi – part of each section continuously circulates back to the tank as long as both the section and Master Switch is on.

◄Full – additional flow continuously circulates back to the tank as long as the Master Switch is on

Display Rate Smoothing

Display Rate Smoothing is a percent value used as a deadband for displaying the application rate valve on the operation screen.

Screen (1)

Minimum Regulation Pressure

Minimum Regulation Pressure establishes the level that the working pressure will not drop below, even if a lower pressure is required by the regulation system (the controller). If the actual pressure on the sprayer becomes lower than this value, the regulating system will continue to increase the pressure until the minimum pressure level has been reached. Range is 0.0 to 29.0 psi / 2.0 bar.

Maximum Regulation Pressure

Maximum Regulation Pressure establishes the level that the working pressure will not rise higher than, even if a higher pressure can be obtained by the regulation system (the controller). If the actual pressure on the sprayer becomes higher than this value, the regulating system will continue to decrease the pressure until the maximum pressure has been reached. Range is 0.0 to 725.2 psi / 50.0 bar.

Regulation Valve Time

Regulation Valve Time is the time in seconds for the regulation valve to go from fully closed to fully open (or vice versa). Range is

1.0 to 60.0 seconds.

NOTE: The time is determined by the type of regulation valve used and should be set to the recommendations included with the regulation valve.

Minimum Regulation Voltage

Minimum Regulation Voltage is the lowest voltage at which the regulation valve will start to move. The controller uses variable voltage to control the valve; the closer the actual rate is to the target rate, the lower the voltage sent to the valve will be. The minimum voltage must be found when the valve is under pressure, as this affects the force required to move the valve. Range is

0.0 to 12.0 volts.

98-05311-ENUS R7

Radion 8140 Automatic Sprayer Control

Screen (2)

Regulation Deadband

Regulation Deadband establishes an acceptable regulation dead band in percent. Regulation will stop when the difference between the target rate and the actual rare is lower than the entered deadband (percent of the target rate). This is to prevent the valve from oscillating when the actual rate is near the target rate.

Regulation Valve Capacity

Regulation Valve Capacity establishes the capacity for the regulation valve. Range is 0 to 264 gallons/minute / 999 liters/minute.

Regulation Start Delay

Regulation Start Delay is the delay in seconds from when the main valve is witched on until regulation starts. Range is

0.0 to 9.9 seconds.

Manual Regulation Speed

Manual Regulation Speed encodes, in percent of the Regulation

Valve Time, the pace at which the regulation valve should move in manual operation.

Screen (3)

Restrictor Plate Flow

Restrictor Plate Flow establishes the capacity of the restrictor plate at 2 bar to be used when working with return flow (Circulation).

Range is 0.00 to 21.99 gal/min / 0.00 to 99.99 l/min.

Default Valve Position

Default Valve Position establishes the percentage of the regulation valve activation time. Range is 0 to 100%.

NOTE: 15 minutes after the master switch has been turned off, the valve will completely close then open the the percentage specified.
