Options camera steering systemROW-GUARD

  • Ground wheel for sensor
  • Stabilising wheels with high gauge wheel or rubber wheels
  • 2 or 4 rubber support wheels for constant camera position in hilly terrain
  • Extension cable for the camera
  • Extension cable for the wheel sensor
  • Additional holder for camera with cable
  • Improved working accuracy
  • In combination with finger weeders all soil is distributed
  • Extremely efficient weed control
  • Very high working speed (up to 15 km/h, depending on the conditions on the field) possible
  • The operator does not get tired so quickly, the required concentration is limited to stay in between the rows – the exact steering is done by the ROW-GUARD steering system.
  • The system can be used in various different crops (green/blue, green/yellow and red), independently from row spacing, number of rows, etc.

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)

Concept of row crop cultivators

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.

 

The photos and images show possible variants and some special versions. The factual machine configuration may differ from these illustrations.

The ROW-GUARD camera steering system guides hoes precisely, even in high speed. Via a control unit in the tractor cabin the precision guidance system can be adjusted comfortably. The picture captured by the camera is being analyzed on spots with a high concentration of green pixel. With help of the available information about row configuration of the crop (row spacing, number of rows, etc.) a raster is put on top of the picture. This data builds the basis for the information provided to the offset frame which guides the hoe exactly in between the rows.
