ISOBUS Job Computer: IC18 Spreader

CHAPTER 1– INTRODUCTION

Congratulations on the purchase of your new IC18 Spreader ECU built on the ISOBUS architecture. When used within the guidelines of the this manual, the IC18 Spreader controller will be a reliable application tool.

This manual covers the European functions of the IC18 ECU. For North American functions, see manual number 98-05173.

Use with your existing universal terminal (UT) for dry product application Figure 1-1: IC18 job computer

Product Benefits:

• Works seamlessly and displays on any ISOBUS UT.

• Easy navigation menu and data rich display.

• Add additional ISOBUS ECUs as your needs change.

• Provides basic rate control or variable rate if the connecting UT has variable rate task control capabilities.

• Standardized plugs, cables and software simplify installation and connectivity and result in true “plug and play” technology.

IC18 Spreader ECU resides on the implement, reducing hardware in the cab.

CONFIGURATIONS

The following diagram is reflective of typical a IC18 job computer configuration. Due to the variety of possible configurations, this should be used for reference purposes only.

START UP

Power is continuously supplied to the job computer. The Universal Terminal (UT) will give access to the job computer options and operation.

• A firm touch is required when selecting a screen icon.

• Settings are NOT automatically saved when selected. The ACCEPT KEY must be selected to save the setting. Select the ESCAPE

KEY to escape without saving settings and return to the previous menu.

• The console needs to be cycled “off” and back on when changing or attaching equipment to the system.

NOTE: The menu structure on your display might vary from the one displayed in this user manual depending on the universal terminal (UT) being used.

PROGRAMME MODE

The IC18 job computer is programmeed to calculate calibrations based on North America or European methods.

◄European – Gate height is NOT calculated into the product application and calibrations will be based on Volume per impulse.

◄North America – Gate height is calculated into the product application and calibrations will be based on Impulses per volume.

This setting has been established before leaving the factory, but it can be changed after purchase with assistance from

TeeJet Technologies Customer Service or your local dealer through the OEM setup menu options.

Figure 1-3: European

Figure 1-4: North America

This manual discusses specifically the functions and options in European mode. See the specific IC18 Spreader: North America user manual for functions and options in North America mode.

Active trip counter

Active trip counter selects one of up to ten (10) active trip counters to view the desired trip information. The trip that is “active” is displayed/active on the Operation screen.

NOTE: The selected trip counter will have all data modified (added to) when additional operations are activated. If current trip counter is not cleared, the new data will be added to the existing data.

Application rate

Application rate defines a target rate of product being applied per hectare/acre. This setting will set the same for all active trips.

Tonnage

Tonnage converts pounds/kilograms to tons. It is used when the application rate exceeds the number of digits allowed on the screen display.

NOTE: For specific calibration options to appear, a specific sensor needs to be installed or a programme mode needs to be selected. Sensor availability is activated on the Sensor presence screen in the OEM section. Programme mode is established in the OEM section.

Bed size

Bed size defines the maximum amount that can fit in the holding container.

Density

Density defines the weight of the material being applied.

Flow factor

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

(shape, grain, weight, moisture). These factors may vary with each batch and it may change due to weather (humidity, etc.). In order to accommodate for this, the IC18 uses a flow factor to compensate for the nature of the applied fertiliser .

Filling

Filling establishes the amount of material remaining in the bed.

NOTE: The size of the bed is established in the OEM menu. This is the number that will repopulate when the FULL BED KEY

is pressed.

Figure 3-9: Filling

Application rate step

Application rate step is the percent of increase/decrease “boost” of the active application rate at which the product is being applied.

Figure 3-11: Step percentage increase/decrease

Filling - NOT AVAILBLE

Filling is not available when a weight system is activated.

Amount remaining

Amount remaining displays the calculated material left in the bed.

The amount can be manually adjusted.

Full bed

Full bed returns the amount remaining value to the maximum amount of material in the bed.

• To reset the Amount remaining value, press the

FULL BED KEY .

Operation

Operation establishes Application rate step, Speed source and

Simulated speed.

Figure 3-10: Operation

Speed source

Speed source selects whether to base the machine’s speed on input from the CAN, the Implement or a Simulated source. Selecting

“Implement” will allow for the configuration of impulses per 100 metres. Selecting “Simulated” will allow for simulated speed to be entered using the “Edit value” option. Selecting “CAN” allows for speed being supplied by the ISOBUS CAN (usually from the TECU) to be used.

NOTE: If “Implement” is selected, refer to the Calibrations section for further instructions.

Simulated speed

Simulated speed establishes a speed to be used when using the

Simulated speed source.

Implement Parameters

Implement parameters establishes Working width, Fast empty bed

RPM and Master switch location.

Figure 3-12: Implement parameters

Working width

Working width establishes the desired distance between each adjacent pass while spreading.

ISOBUS Job Computer: IC18 Spreader

Fast empty bed RPM

Fast empty bed RPM establishes the revolutions per minute of the roller used to drive the conveyor during the fast empty. The availability of Fast empty bed is established in the OEM menu under Programme modes. When set to “on”, the FAST EMPTY Bed

KEY will be available on the Home screen.

Master switch

Master Switch is used to allow the operator to choose between a remote switch or console. Select "Remote switch" when using a switchbox to operate equipment. Select "Console" to use the

START/STOP KEY on the Operation Screen to operate equipment.

Application rate

An application rate test establishes the corrected flow factor or calibration number using a calibration function. This figure is determined by measuring the bed at a predetermined and pre measured amount and then again after a sufficant amount has been spread. Based on the differences between the measured and known amounts, a factor is determined to accurately calculate future application rates.

NOTE: Options will vary depending on options set in OEM->

Program Modes-> Flow Correction Type.

Figure 3-14: Application rate

Calibrations

Calibrations establishes either manual or automatic settings of the sensors. Different options will be available depending on the OEM->
