ISOBUS Job Computer : IC18 Sprayer
CHAPTER 1– PRODUCT 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 this manual, the IC18
controller will be a reliable application tool.
This manual covers the Sprayer functions of the IC18 ECU. For NH3 functions, see manual number 98-05230.
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 Electronic Control Unit for IC18
GETTING STARTED
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.

Regulation Parameters
Regulation Parameters establishes adjustments to the valve calibrations, nozzle
spacing and regulations mode.
NOTE: Adjusting the Valve Calibration settings involves significant changes and
adjustments should therefore be made in small steps.
Figure 3-22: Regulation Parameters
Valve Calibration, Rough
Rough regulation value calibration allows you to regulate 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
►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, Rough, use the number pad or slide bar.
If your system is plumbed in a bypass mode, the valve setting number of 9 works very well in most applications
If your system is plumbed in a throttling mode, start with a valve setting 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 setting 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 time and “speed up” the rate of adjustment.
OVERVIEW
Valve Calibration, Fine
Fine regulation value calibration allows you to regulate 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 digit adjsuts the setting for the fine
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 setting number of 5 works very well in most applications.
If your system is plumbed in a throttling mode, start with a valve setting 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 setting 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
