The effect of the wind on the spread pattern can be permanently monitored and automatically compensated for by WindControl. A high-frequency wind sensor mounted on the machine records both the wind speed and the wind direction and transmits this information to the job computer. It uses this data to calculate new setting values for the delivery system and spreading disc speed, which are then automatically adjusted. If there is a side wind, the speed of the side facing the wind is increased and the delivery system is turned outwards. At the same time, the speed of the side facing away from the wind is reduced and the delivery system is turned inwards. As a result, the wind effect is automatically compensated for, thereby ensuring optimum lateral distribution.
