Vegetation detector radar Kronos Beta is a technological tool developed for our r+D+I department that use radar waves to measure vegetation presence in a determined area. It´s designed for atomizers that work in crops with wide planting frames. Vegetation detector radar Kronos Beta has the following advantages:
We have developed two versions of Kronos Beta radar:
The Kronos Beta LT is the simplest version of this model. It has a 5″ touch screen with 800×480 resolution, integrated GPS for speed on the monitor and a wired connection. It has 4 working modes:
It is configured as standard to obtain the display of different working parameters on the screen:
Number of trees treated
Date and time
Status of the solenoid valves
Status of ultrasonic probes
The most complete version is the Kronos Beta Pro, with a 7″ touch screen, GPS integrated in the power box, wireless connection and flow meter. Like the LT model it has 4 independent working modes (right-left):
Automatic, according to actual forward speed.
Automatic, according to the simulated forward speed
Automatic, with input and output delay
This model has a more sophisticated data display, storage and control system than the simple version, as follows:
Forward speed display
Display of working pressure (optional)
Display of the total instantaneous flow rate (L/min)
Display of applied volume (L/Ha)
Display of liters per tree
Controller of treated trees
Area counter (hectares covered)
Area counter (hectares treated)
Liters distributed counter
Counter of hours worked
Kilometer travelled counter
Tractor consumption counter (not real)
It also provides information on different values of the equipment’s autonomy.
Remaining liters in tank
Hectares to be treated with the remaining liters
Working time with the remaining liters
Remaining distance to be covered with the remaining liters
Visual and audible warnings of:
Correct operation of sensors and solenoid valves.
Deviations from the marked margins of speed, pressure, flow, tank level, etc.
Deviation from the programmed dosage (liters/hectare).
By selecting either version of the Kronos Beta, either the LT or Pro version, there is a marked increase in the efficiency of agricultural treatments and a significant reduction in associated costs. However, the choice between one or the other will depend on the level of precision required for the crop in question.
