I’m looking at hot to control raise / lower coming into and out of headlands. I liked the machine control functions that were built into the u-turn screen. Where you could trigger actions with a relative distance away from the turn.
With the raise / lower function, it doesn’t appear that you can change the trigger point for the raise and lower. i.e. I’d like to start raising X distance before the implement crosses the headland and I’d like to start lowering Y distance before it crosses. Primarily looking at doing this with a planter to time things with when it raises from and engages with the ground.
If this offset functionality available?
Also, it does not appear that the machine control action in U-turn can be routed to the relays – is this correct?
I’ve been playing with this in sim mode tonight, and it only seems to apply to the section control on/off. When I’m adjusting, it looks like the raise always starts at the headland. It’s been difficult to test as I’m getting an error when I open the tool menu.
I’m running a 1 section tool, 180" wide.
Here’s the error I get when opening the tool menu:
I’m trying to figure out the best way. I like referencing off the headland as it is the true boundary when I plant. From my testing, it appears the lift is tripped right at the headland, the lower is tripped before. I would fiddle with the headland line location and timing to make it close.
I’d like to be able to set triggers like the U-turn machine entry/exit based off the headland line. The start point of the u-Turn varies when in odd shaped fields. OR have the option to reference the U-turn sequence off the headland vs. the field boundary.
uturn does get sent to the machine module - but the code isn’t written. Everyone kind of wants to do something different with machine control, i am unclear how to proceed given there are sooooo many combinations of applications.
Its a shame to get almost all the way there, then drop the ball at turning a relay on and off.
