Raven Adds New Products

Raven Industries used the recent Farm Progress Show to announce eight new products designed to fill the spaces in its precision product line.

The new lineup was conceived and developed from several conversations with its distribution network, and include planter control, yield monitoring, real time kinematic (RTK) GPS for steering-ready machines and scalable GPS for Envizio Pro.

OmniRow. For variable rate planting, this solution will provide hydraulically controlled planting at the section or row level for up to a 24-row planter. The system will not require the use of a clutch at every row and allows the control of rows or sections with a single unit.

Envizio Pro II. This upgrade to the popular Envizio controller can now utilize GPS correction from WAAS all the way up to RTK for maximum GPS scalability, and can utilize the OmniRow system as well as Raven’s new yield monitoring product, SmartYield.

Cruizer II. According to Raven, the new Cruizer is faster and more powerful than the original is CAN-bus capable (allowing it to interface with AccuBoom automatic section control and Raven assisted-steering). Growers can also use it to record and save A-B lines and job files.

Digi-Star Scale Interface. Cruizer and Cruizer II will now interface with Digi-Star’s scales and nutrient-management system. Operators will be able to utilize GPS guidance, while monitoring application rates on-the-go by displaying tons-per-acre coverage on the Cruizer and Cruizer II guidance screens.

SmartYield. This new optical-sensor-based yield monitor fills a significant void in Raven’s product line. SmartYield features hillside compensation and simple calibration and start-up, including pre-set combine calibration settings. The system will interface with the Envizio Pro II or Cruizer II.

SmartTrax RTK. Raven officially adds the highest accuracy GPS option to its offerings, allowing users to tie into existing steer-ready hydraulic blocks to simplify installation. SmartTrax RTK will interface with both the Viper Pro and Envizio Pro field computers.

SideKick Pro. This new direct-injection system, designed for user safety and efficiency in chemical applications, features an automatic calibration system that significantly reduces setup time.

AccuFlow HP. This new anhydrous application system is designed with extra capacity to run at higher speeds and colder temperatures, providing the end user greater application flexibility.
