Using a simple adhesive the acoustic sensors are easy to install on the back of each deflector, so there is no disruption to product flow. 

The acoustic sensors listen to the material flow and send sound pulses through auditory tubes, similar to a stethoscope. The data is collected by the Electronic Control Unit (ECU), which displays the information on an iPad® in the cab. If there’s a blockage anywhere in the system, you’ll know.

Ensure even distribution of product across your floater, and increase your efficiency by not having to visually detect flow issues.

Recon SpreadSense from Intelligent Ag

How it Works

Simple. Reliable. Our acoustic sensor technology provides reliable, real-time flow detection. The acoustic sensors detect material flow and send sound pulses through auditory tubes, similar to a stethoscope. The data is collected by an Electronic Control Unit (ECU), which displays the information on an iPad® in the cab. If there’s a blockage anywhere in the system, you’ll know.

Recon SpreadSense costs pennies per acre and can save farmers thousands per field. Fertilizer misapplication resulting from one plugged tube (2 deflectors) on a broadcast boom over a 160-acre field can cost the farmer a lost revenue of $4,000 in corn, $3,000 in soybean, and $1,650 in wheat.

*Based on a 70 ft boom and 50% yield reduction in areas of the field where fertilizer is misapplied.
