  • Precision guiding system
  • Even at high working speeds
  • Easy, user-friendly adjustment
  • Large field of view over several rows
  • Increased working precision
  • Efficient weed control

The ROW-GUARD camera steering system steers the hoe with absolute precision along the crops via a sideshift frame. This guarantees precise and close work of the hoe even at high speeds and will relieve the driver. Even with very small plants (from approx. 2 cm / 0,80") as well as in different colours or with heavy weeds, the ROW-GUARD camera steering in organic and conventional cultivation brings increased precision.

The automatic camera steering can be conveniently set from the tractor via an operating terminal. With the help of different setting parameters, adapted to the crop (row spacing, number of rows in the camera's field of view, plant width and height), an appropriate grid is laid over the image. Based on this data, the hoe is centred exactly along the row with the help of the sideshift frame. This ensures a narrow hoeing belt which guarantees maximum weed control.

Our hoeing technology

The concept of the CHOPSTAR row hoes is its variability and the many possibilities of individual tools for various crops. The same strong and solid frame is used for all row hoes. Almost any row hoe can also be equipped with the automatic camera steering system ROW-GUARD.

Advantages

Advantages ROW‑GUARD

Shortest connection of sideshift frame and row-crop cultivator
Because of the narrow construction of the Einböck-linear-sideshift frame the centre of gravity remains very closely to the tractor.
This construction offers the following advantages:

  • Reduced axle load on the tractor and therefore reduced soil compaction
  • The wider the construction of the sideshift frame, the higher the load on the rear axle and the lifting power requirement of the tractor increases
  • The extremely narrow construction of the ROW-GUARD moves the centre of gravity only 20 cm / 7.90" to the rear. Machines with parallelogram shifting extend the position of row-crop cultivator up to 80 cm / 31.50" and more to the rear.
  • Especially when fields are not straight or in hilly conditions the short construction is a big advantage.

One sideshift frame = several row-crop cultivators

Simple and quick coupling and uncoupling of the Einböck sideshift frame allows to use different row-crop cultivators with only one sideshift frame.

Best visibility - even in fields with heavy weed infestation and small crops

The software recognizes the plant rows even in case of heavy weed infestations and/or small plants. The settings can be adjusted easily on the conditions.

Stable position of the sideshift-frame

Stabilising wheels made from rubber or metal gauge wheels (e.g. hilly conditions) help to guide the hoe precisely along the row. They are standard equipment. It is easy to adapt them to differnt tractor track width.

Maximum precision - 2nd Camera (optionally)

A row crop cultivator can be controlled by two cameras simultaneously. Especially for very small crops, an additional camera, by looking on additional plant rows, ensures a great result. Especially for hoes with hydraulic lifting "SECTION-CONTROL": For example, on pointy rows at the headlands a row of plants always remains within the camera's field of view. This ensures hoeing until the last unworked row and guarantees a weed control on the full surface of the field.

Technical data and specifications are approximate and without obligation. Construction and design are subject to change.

 

Preconditions for the use of the ROW-GUARD camera steering system

 

Tractor linkage:

  • Linkage cat. II (for version SR and SRHD Cat. III)
  • Fix lower linkage (working side bars!)

 

Hydraulic:

  • 1 single acting hydraulic valve with permanent oil-flow and pressure-free return line
  • For a pressure-free return line a ¾ “ quick lock valve on the tractor is needed
  • For the side-shift of the frame a constant oil flow of only about 15‑20 l/min is needed – tractors with higher capacity should have the possibility to limit the oil flow to this amount!
  • It would be advantageous if the linkage can act independently of the hydraulic control valves (important when lifting and centring of the machine at the end of the field)

 

Electric:

  • 3-pin constant electric socket (12 V)

 

Special features:

  • Proportional hydr. valve: dynamic control of the valve for smooth operation of the sideshift frame
  • 3D-mode: the machine recognizes the row because of the difference in height between crops and weeds
  • Automatic recognition of height and angle position of the camera: comfortable adjustment of camera height
  • Color options in the 2D-mode (green/yellow, green/blue, red)
  • Automatic switching of offset
  • High camera resolution
  • Recognition of different row structures (single or multiple rows)
  • Integrated chart for recommended camera height
  • Saving of settings

Adaptation of the camera application to the culture

The camera setting can be adjusted to suit the color or height of the crop. You can choose between green/yellow (e.g. corn), green/blue (e.g. soybeans, vegetables) or red (vegetables e.g. beetroot) in 2D mode. The 3D mode can be used for corn, soybeans, sunflowers etc., if the plant rows have a clear growth advance (approx. 10 cm / 3.90") over the weed. Correct adjustment to the crop further increases the accuracy of row guidance.

Stabilising wheels of the sideshift frame
When ordering an Einböck row-crop cultivator height-adjustable stabilising wheels are included. The wheels can be adjusted to the track width of the tractor and the row distance. Depending on the type of soil you can choose between different rubber or metal gauge wheels.

Cutting of the image
Tractor tracks or other elements in the image would prevent the ROW-GUARD from precise working (especially in smaller working widths). Therefore, it is possible to cut the image easily and quickly.
