CROPLANDS PARTNERS WITH PRECISION AG MARKET-LEADER CapstanAG SYSTEMS
Croplands is now a distributor for the very successful CapstanAG’s Pinpoint II product
CapstanAG Systems, Inc. is a technology-based company that specialises in creating new proprietary systems for the agricultural industry, particularly with chemical and fertiliser applications. Their innovation has made CapstanAG the leading manufacturer of pulse-width-modulated spray control systems in the United States.
Croplands is now a distributor for the very successful CapstanAG’s Pinpoint II product, which will be fitted as an option with 10 inch (or metric 250mm) close-nozzle spacing on their new RoGator C series, including their 48 metre aluminium Pommier boom option from October 2018.
Individual nozzle control with the PinPoint II system maximises efficiency and productivity through increased accuracy. PinPoint II utilises Blended Pulse PWM technology to achieve complete individual nozzle control. Real time system feedback is viewed and controlled through the CapView II interactive display.
PinPoint II controls flow and pressure at the nozzle, maintaining droplet spectrum at a wide range of speeds to improve drift control and achieve more precise application. The system also features turn compensation and individual nozzle headland control, performing exceptionally well in irregular shaped paddocks to minimise overlap and missed areas. Speeding up, slowing down, turning, overlapping, or any combination of those variables will not effect the consistency of the PinPoint II system.
Croplands is also developing a PinPoint II option for their Pegasus range of broadacre trailed sprayers, as well as an aftermarket fitment for other models.
