IC-Light

  • Automatic camera steering system
  • Precise and fatigue-free hoeing at day and night time
  • Option for every EC-Weeder

The IC-Light system contains three key components: The camera, the terminal including job computer and the EC-Steer, a parallel sliding frame. Together they form a precise automatical steering system for your EC-Weeder to create space to grow for your crops.

Components

The three components of the IC-Light system allow you to work fatigue-free and precisely with your EC-Weeder. The system takes over the steering of your hoeing machine in the rows without any crop damage.

Camera

The high-resolution camera makes images of the crop rows and sends this data to the terminal. It detects between 1 and 5 crop rows eighter in green hues or in the RGB-colour spectrum.

Terminal

The touch-screen terminal is integrated in the job computer, which processes the camera-images to precise steering signals. The operation is very intuitive, but extra help is accessible via remote service.

EC-Steer

EC-Steer is the parallel steering frame which transfers the steering signal from the terminal to the EC-Weeder hydraulically. The hoeing machine is than steered between the rows independently from the tractor movements.

Options

Do you want to work at night time, or need an extra steering system for your EC-Weeder bed machine? Than you might choose between some options for the IC-Light system.

LED lights

The LED lights are available to illuminate the field of vision for the camera and enable high-precision work at night.

Joystick

A joystick can be added to an IC-Light system, in case you want to have manual control about the steering of your EC-Weeder

Second camera

For wider working widths, a second camera enables precise steering of the EC-Weeder in field triangles. In case one camera can see no row, because the headland is reached, the other camera can take over.

Multiple IC-Light systems

In case more than one seeder width or bed should be covered in one weeding pass, multiple IC-Light systems can be mounted on one EC-Weeder, while using only one terminal.

EC-Steer with quick hitch or 3-point-hitch

Optional, an IC-Light system can be used with different EC-Weeders. For that the EC-Steer is not fixed integrated in the EC-Weeder, but has a quick hitch or 3-point-hitch to attach multiple hoeing machines to the parallel sliding frame.
