Control Tech­nique

Nowa­days, complex tankers and espe­cial­ly those with ground-level spread­ing tech­nol­o­gy, require a large number of hydraulic func­tions. The hydraulic con­nec­tions avail­able on the tractor are usually not suf­fi­cient for a pur­pose­ful oper­a­tion of the slurry tanker. For this reason, from a certain level of equip­ment, the tanker must be equipped with its own electro-hydraulic control unit. But also, in order to be able to imple­ment auto­mat­ic sequences which facil­i­tate con­sid­er­ably the oper­a­tion, the slurry tanker must be able to access to its own indi­vid­ual control logic. There are 4 series of control units avail­able for indi­vid­ual con­fig­u­ra­tion. The Signo4.0‑Comfort, the Signo4.0‑ISOBUS, the I‑Control and the seating valve control unit.

SIGNO 4.0 – Member of the CCI

High-tech con­trols are essen­tial espe­cial­ly for pre­ci­sion farming, auto­mat­ic spread­ing control systems and NIRS nutri­ent mea­sure­ments. We have devel­oped the Signo4.0 control unit on the basis of these latest tech­nolo­gies as well as simple com­po­nents such as slurry guns. This BUS-based control unit has been devel­oped accord­ing to the latest elec­tron­ic stan­dards and has been spe­cial­ly designed for Bauer slurry tankers. Our inter­nal control depart­ment pro­grams and creates this tech­nol­o­gy in coop­er­a­tion with the Compe­tence Center ISOBUS, known as CCI for short. As a CCI member, the Bauer Group ben­e­fits from cross-company coop­er­a­tion with other man­u­fac­tur­ers in agri­cul­tur­al tech­nol­o­gy and the Agri­cul­tur­al Indus­try Elec­tron­ics Foun­da­tion (AEF). This net­work­ing ensures both system secu­ri­ty and com­pat­i­bil­i­ty with trac­tors and other machines, which the Signo4.0 offers.

SIGNO 4.0 Comfort

The Signo4.0 Comfort offers the know-how of a bus control with the pos­si­bil­i­ty to operate it via intu­itive toggle levers. By means of the clearly arranged Comfort ter­mi­nal, the func­tions and auto­mat­ic sequences are con­trolled direct­ly via toggle levers. Logical posi­tion­ing and self-explana­to­ry symbols enable quick and safe oper­a­tion of your slurry tanker. A joy­stick can also be used. The sturdy alu­mini­um housing is remov­able and can there­fore be stored safely during down­times. A sequen­tial control of the impor­tant oper­at­ing sequences as well as an optical and acoustic display “tank empty” is includ­ed as stan­dard. The control system also auto­mat­i­cal­ly detects when one side of the spread­ing boom is switched off (partial width control) and reduces the appli­ca­tion rate of pump tankers by 50% via the dis­tri­b­u­tion slide valve.

SIGNO 4.0 ISOBUS

SIGNO 4.0 in con­nec­tion with ISOBUS stan­dard­is­es the com­mu­ni­ca­tion, it ensures the com­pat­i­bil­i­ty and allows for a control of devices and machines irre­spec­tive of the man­u­fac­tur­er. In prac­tice, this means that one single ISOBUS ter­mi­nal on the tractor replaces many spe­cif­ic ter­mi­nals of attach­ments. Of course, the ISOBUS tractor ter­mi­nal can also be used for tanker oper­a­tion, pro­vid­ed it is of an appro­pri­ate size so that it can be divided appro­pri­ate­ly and sup­ports the “12-soft­keys” stan­dard. But ISOBUS can do even more: The tech­nol­o­gy also con­trols the doc­u­men­ta­tion of indi­vid­ual oper­a­tions on the field and it manages the data exchange to the PC on the farm. Signo 4.0 ISOBUS is based on the latest gen­er­a­tion of job com­put­ers with fast and high com­put­ing power — this makes reli­able pro­cess­ing of the large amounts of data child’s play. For oper­a­tion, 3 ter­mi­nals and 2 joy­stick vari­ants are available.

  • Touch ter­mi­nal 8.0″ with multi-touch oper­a­tion at smart­phone level and Pre­ci­sion Farming compatibility
  • Touch ter­mi­nal 12.1″ with widescreen touch, simul­ta­ne­ous display of several appli­ca­tions, oper­a­tion at smart­phone level and Pre­ci­sion Farming compatibility

Quan­ti­ty Control of Appli­ca­tion Rate

Exact dosing is simple! With the SIGNO elec­tron­ic por­tion­er, you enter the desired value in m³/ha into your ter­mi­nal and the system auto­mat­i­cal­ly con­trols the appli­ca­tion rate depend­ing on forward speed, PTO speed and strip width. The complex com­po­nents installed in the tanker, such as induc­tive flow meters, wheel sensors and actu­a­tor, ensure accu­rate data recog­ni­tion, trans­mis­sion and control. Inte­grat­ed into the SIGNO 4.0 ISOBUS control unit, this pro­vides the basic element for Pre­ci­sion Farming.

The digital tool

Pre­ci­sion Farming

GPS-Pre­ci­sion is the digital tool for effi­cient slurry spread­ing and increased pre­ci­sion. These ISOBUS tools support slurry spread­ing and offer many wide-ranging pos­si­bil­i­ties, includ­ing doc­u­men­ta­tion trans­mis­sion. Pre­ci­sion Farming requires the Signo 4.0 control unit ISOBUS and GPS.

Section Control

SIGNO Command SC

Section Control (SC) auto­mat­i­cal­ly switch­es partial width sec­tions from the spread­ing booms. The head­land func­tion allows to block areas for cul­ti­va­tion in order to work the inside of the field first. You can create head­lands all around the field or indi­vid­ual head­lands at the head ends only.

SIGNO ID

With the SIGNO-ID, fields are fer­tilised on a nutri­ent basis and in real-time nutri­ent values. The SIGNO-ID mea­sures Nges (total inor­gan­ic nitro­gen), P2O5 (phos­pho­rus pen­tox­ide), K2O (potas­si­um oxide), NH4-N (ammo­ni­um nitro­gen) and TS (dry matter content). The NIRS (NearInfraRedSpec­troscopy) method is one of the most accu­rate on the market and is based on data­bas­es devel­oped over many years which can there­fore process pig slurry, cattle slurry and fer­men­ta­tion substrates.

Seating Valve Control

The proven, simple seating valve control is a pre­s­e­lec­tor control that com­bines simple cylin­der func­tions. The desired func­tion is set via a rotary switch on the control panel and oper­at­ed with the tractor’s hydraulic lever as usual. The control unit is appro­pri­ate for com­bin­ing 2 or 3 cylin­der func­tions if the tractor con­nec­tions are not suf­fi­cient. Our Signo 4.0 control unit is the ideal choice for more complex com­bi­na­tions of functions.
