SASKATOON, SK – NORAC Systems International, a member of the Topcon Positioning Group announces the release of Max Sensing™. With this new technology, NORAC once again raises the bar for boom height control performance as it takes the concept of measuring boom dynamics to the next level. Performance improvements with Max Sensing are especially noticeable on sprayers with rigid center sections.
Max Sensing is now available for NORAC’s Passive Roll™ and Active Wing Roll™ systems on Miller Nitro and New Holland Guardian sprayers. Both systems are offered as part of the UC5™ product line and will guarantee unprecedented automatic boom height control performance.
“Max Sensing has made boom height control smarter, more intuitive, and able to adapt to almost any boom design”, said Danea Armstrong, president. “This is especially important for boom height control performance on rigid booms and other booms that are challenging to control.” For more information about Max Sensing or sprayer boom height control options visit norac.ca or contact your local NORAC dealer.
