Arag in Rubiera, near Reggio Emilia, will unwrap two new computers for precision farming at the Eima Agrimach. The Delta 80 is a new generation model which marks a turning point compared to ARAG's Bravo series in featuring great connectivity via two USB ports and a 10/100 Ethernet port for connecting to Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n/ plus Bluetooth 2.1+EDR and a SIM 3G slot for use with the installation of an optional modem.

This computer is set up for the management of the electronic valves mounted on the Seletron nozzle holders to make it possible to divide up the sprayer boom into as many sections as there are nozzles to reduce the operating costs and the impact of the treatment on the environment. The Delta 80 is also equipped with an ample color display of 8.4”, a blacklit keyboard and packs 2Gb of memory. Also up for presentation by ARAG is the Syncro terminal designed especially for the control of auxiliary sprayer systems.

The manufacturer's technical note said the device, connected to a new family of electric ball valves, can automate such operations as loading the tank and washing the circuits and booms. Another plus feature of the new Syncro is that the device is sealed to allow the operator maximum freedom to locate it outside the sprayer or mount it as a panel. Thus the new and versatile onboard computer Arag is taking to New Delhi promises greater efficiency in the management of plant treatment products thanks to automatic control of procedures which were previously dealt with manually by the operator.
