PWM valve: the technology behind precise applications

PWM valve: the technology behind precise applications

Hércules 4.0 and Hércules 6.0 self-propelled spreaders provide superior quality in spreading operations and the most comprehensive technology package that results in faster and efficient operations. One of its new technologies is the Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) valve system.

The PWM valve is a compensatory system and is installed in the spreading system, which allows for the operation force adjustment of the equipment during applications. It performs it by modular pulses that adjust the system oil flow.

The PWM valve installed on the spinner disc system provides higher uniformity and contributes to the variable-rate application by creating a compensation system. The sensors read the rotation of the spinner disks and identify the need to balance the application demand. As the application begins, the load of the product on the spinner disks changes this factor. But this does not happen with the PWM valve. By means of sensors, the valve reads the need for adjustments and releases higher or lower oil flow to balance the system power, regardless of the engine rotation, which operates individually.

This technology enables the farmer to maintain the application quality and avoid a lack of uniformity. The PWM valve in the spinner disc system ensures constant rotation. It provides uniformity both for the width in the application range and coefficient of variation, which on Hércules 4.0 and Hércules 6.0, is up to 12%, ensuring superior quality in spreading operations.

The Hércules 4.0 and Hércules 6.0 self-propelled spreaders are the best options for those who want precision, quality, and economy in spreading operations.
