INTELLIGENT SPRAY SYSTEM
Frequently Asked Questions
Does the Intelligent Spray System work on all sprayers?
It works for any brand or model of air blast sprayer. It includes a universal mounting bracket that should allow easy mounting to your brand and model of sprayer. if you have any issues mounting, our engineering group will work with you on special brackets, if required.
What does the kit include?
Solenoids for your existing spray nozzles (to allow individual control of each nozzle.
Wiring harness for nozzles
Power cord to battery
Samsung Android tablet
Tablet RAM mount (based on cab or open cab tractor)
Override switch and LED indicator
Universal mounting kit
Android App with unlock codes
Is there a tank size minimum, or limitation?
What factors should I consider when selecting between the 20 nozzle and the 39 nozzle kit?
If your current sprayer has 20 nozzles or under, or more than 20 nozzles.
What if I have problems with the installation?
Who can I call for help with troubleshooting?
Smart Guided Systems tech support
How do I know the system is working?
Green flashing LED mounted next to our controllers, viewable from the tractor.
Android tablet shows operating status
Amount of material being used based on mathematical calculations based on our controller turning the solenoids on/off at a set pressure.
Can I turn the Intelligent Spray System off and use my conventional sprayer?
Is there a specific PSI (pound per square inch) recommendation for the system?
How much does it cost?
Up to 20 spray nozzles $27,000
Up to 39 spray nozzles $35,000
How does Smart Guided handle returns?
Call tech support and request a Return Authorization Number, and either a credit will be made to the card you paid with, or a check issued. Either requires receipt of the system and validation of no damage.
What is the warranty on the Intelligent Spray System?
This product, manufactured by Smart Guided Systems, is warranted to the original retail purchaser against defects in material and workmanship for 12 months after App activation. This warranty does not cover damage resulting from improper use, accidents, user’s negligence or normal wear. This warranty does not cover any defects or damages caused by service or repair performed by anyone other than Smart Guided Systems.
How does this new sprayer handle doses? You say it reduces the amount of products used, but how do you calibrate that change into the dosage?
It uses a highly accurate laser to create “cross sections” of the tree to develop a density map of the canopy. Based on the density it sprays more or less based on this data by pulsing the nozzle solenoids, applying more product where density is great, less product with density is less (like just a single branch). No calibration required, the system does all this automatically. Between trees it won’t spray at all if no branches are present. It also shuts off at the end of rows automatically.
How is the Intelligent Spray Control System different from other control systems used with precision ag on large sprayers, like Capstan AG or Raven Hawkeye?
Like these other control systems, Intelligent Spray Control System does adjust flow rate to travel speed. However, the unique feature of our system is the Lidar Laser scanning. From the scanned data, our system determines the density within the various area sections of the scan. This density information is used to determine how much spray to apply and where to apply dependent on the number of nozzles and which nozzle is selected.
