What we do

In summary:

‘RDS Designs and Manufactures Electronic Control and Monitoring Systems for the Mobile Machinery Industry’


Part 2System Options


Wizard AC100 Plus


Wizard AC100


Wizard AC100 Plus & Lite

The Wizard AC 100 is a simple monitor & controller for the modern seed applicator.

  • Motor Speed - Control of the metering motor proportional to forward speed to monitor the programmed application rate

  • Fan Monitor & Control - Monitor/control the pneumatic fans used for the seed distribution

  • Speed and Level - The wizard also displays forward speed and low hopper alarm

  • Data - Records area (2 independently resettable area registers)

  • Sensors - Radar or GPS Forward Speed measurement

  • Alarms - Instant alarms for any faults within the system – Faulty motor, Faulty fan, Broken shaft/drive belt


MAC 8000i


MAC 8000i Features

The MAC8000 can be used instead of the Wizard instrument and be configured for single or multi-channel applicator control.

  • One instrument - instead of 2/3 for monitoring/control of multiply applicators fitted to 1 implement.

  • Distribution Options – choice of electric, hydraulic or spinner outputs to distribute seed/fertiliser/pellets.

  • Integrated SD card reader – allows basic data logging to produce field records. Prints in text or csv format for uploading directly into a spreadsheet or yield map proprietary software packages.

  • Precision Farming capability – add an RDS GPS16 receiver and load pre-defined seeding plan via SD card for automated variable seed/fert application

  • Printer option – useful for contractors to produce field records


Part 3Frequently Asked Questions & Precision Farming


  • I already have a Radar Sensor, can I use that?

  • Can I use my GPS?


Precision Farming - What can it do?

  • Apply seed/fertiliser from an application map

  • Record seed application for traceability and yield improvements

  • Print out paper records

  • Output data to SD card for invoicing and farm records

  • Apply seed/product via a message from a third party instrument

Datalogging with GPS - Output


What do I need?

SD Card

Must be smaller than 2GB

GPS

RDS Part Number - P/GPS16


Precision Farming

Option 1 – Job saved to SD Card


Precision Farming (ERIS)

Option 2 - Soyl Opti sends rate to PSi

RS232


Precision Farming

The system can receive an application rate from a third party controller such as a John Deere Greenstar, Raven or Trimble

RS232


Part 4What Issues May Occur?


It does not Power on?

  • Check the Power Cable and the Fuse

  • Locate the Fuse, should be in the battery box

  • Is the Cable between the Tractor and the Implement in tact?


The Forward Speed is Incorrect?

  • Measure out 100m in the field

  • Lower implement in to the ground

  • Start ‘AutoCal’ procedure (Page 17)


The Area shown is incorrect?

  • Check that the Forward Speed is Correct

  • Check that the Width is Correct


I have used the wrong amount of seed?

  • Check that the Forward Speed is Correct

  • Check that the Width is Correct

  • Repeat the Calibration Test


The Area shown is incorrect?

  • Check that the Forward Speed is Correct

  • Check that the Width is Correct
