Weighing Spreader for the Medium Size Market Segment
The Vicon RO-M GEOSPREAD is the ideal spreader for arable farmers and professional dairy farmers. The GEOSPREAD system does section control with sections of only 2 metres. With a maximum of 14 sections and the possibility to switch sections over the middle, unnecessary overlap is set to an absolute minimum. The 4 load cells and reference sensor on the Vicon RO-M GEOSPREAD spreader are important features as with section control accurate weighing is essential. The total benefit of GEOSPREADcombined with speed related spreading and GEOPOINT headland management can be up to 15%.This can be achieved by saving fertiliser and better yields, because of unnecessary overlap. This Vicon RO-M GEOSPREAD spreader is ISOBUS compatible and AEF certified. You can operate the spreader in combination with the IsoMatch Tellus, IsoMatch Tellus GO or any other ISOBUS compatible tractor terminal.

When running IsoMatch GEOCONTROL in addition to GEOSPREAD you can set the RO-M/RO-EDW GEOSPREAD more accurately. The working width will be automatically adjusted to suit the overlap and coverage using a GPS positioning system. For example, when driving in a wedge or irregular shaped field, GEOSPREAD will start to decrease the working width step by step. GEOSPREAD is using the section control function of the IsoMatch GEOCONTROL software which is in the IsoMatch Tellus or IsoMatch Tellus GO terminal. The spreader working width is divided into a minimum of 2 metre sections (max. 24 sections on RO-EDW GEOSPREAD and max. 14 sections on RO-M GEOSPREAD). Not only the spreading width is adjusted, the application rate (kg/min) is also adjusted automatically to match the revised spreading width. This unique combination of working width and application rate adjustment makes the GEOSPREAD system extremely accurate, with minimum influence on the spread pattern coefficient of variation.
With the AutosetApp you have always the most up to date settings for your weighing spreader available. The AutosetApp is an App (software application) available on the IsoMatch Tellus or IsoMatch Tellus GO terminal. The AutosetApp is standard integrated into the IsoMatch Tellus GEOCONTROL software. This App connects the terminal directly with the GEOSPREAD weighing spreader and will automatically adjust the spreader according to the settings entered into the App. The AutosetApp will also work in combination with the RO-M EW and EDW, with the exception being for those spreaders the discharge point (letter setting) still needs to be adjusted manually on the spreader itself.
The Vicon fertiliser spreader database with the most up to date spreading charts is always available online. The AutosetApp can connect to the fertiliser spreading database in two different ways. You can connect it to the online database via the IsoMatch Wireless WIFI USB adapter or download the most actual database from the website www.viconspreadingcharts.com on an USB stick and upload the database directly into the IsoMatch Tellus or IsoMatch Tellus GO terminal.
