Crop sprayer boom control.

Key Requirements

  • Sensor to control the pesticide / fertiliser sprayer boom height to ensure uniform crop coverage.
  • Limit control to prevent the boom from colliding with and damaging the crop.
  • Non-contact technology for wear free reliability.
  • Continuous monitoring to compensate for uneven terrain.
  • Immunity to the effects of chemicals, dust and heat.


Pepperl + Fuchs UC500-30GM70-IE2R2-V15 ultrasonic sensor with the following key features;

  • Analogue 4-20mA output interfaces with the machine’s hydraulic boom height control system to ensure a consistent spray pattern above the crop.
  • Separate PNP digital output provides an independent switch point for controlling anti-collision functions.
  • Ultrasonic technology provides up to 500mm range of wear free performance while its robust, corrosion resistant housing gives superior vibration and shock protection.
  • 60ms update time coupled with ‘cross talk’ protection technology allows for rapid terrain response.
  • IP65 chemical resistant housing, capable of withstanding the ingress of dust and water with an operating temperature range of -25 to +70 degrees C.
