Fan Jet Duo

The Fan Jet Duo consists of a pair of contra rotating and upgraded Fan Jet Pro Plus applicators. The two applicators running in tandem are typically used to broadcast slug pellets, up to a maximum of 36m (product and mounted height dependent).

The Duo can be fitted with either twin 65 or 130 litre hoppers. 

Typically, the Duo is mounted to self-propelled sprayers. However, the Duo can also be mounted to tractor front linkages and UTV’s. It can be rear mounted, although not recommended, on sprayer booms due to its weight.

The control options for the Duo include the VS-2 control or the more sophisticated TM (twin metering) system.

FAN JET DUO CONTROLS

   

VS-2 CONTROL

The VS-2 offers fixed speed metering with optional speed related metering. Calibration should be set to the optimal working speed before set-off.

With optional GPS, the VS-2 can regulate the speed of the feed motor according to forward speed to maintain the selected application rate. This simple, easy to use option has an audio visual alarm to alert the operator of any malfunction.

Fan Jet Duo VS-2 Control Box
  • Switch 1 - feed motor on/off
  • Switch 2 - feed motors left/right
  • Switch 3 - feed motor speed range adjustment
  • Middle dial - feed motor speed adjustment
  • Switch 4 - spinning disc speed
  • Right dial - disc motor speed control
  • Includes alarm lights

A simple but effective manually operated left and right electric control is used to instantly start and stop the feed motor e.g. at headlands. Application rates and width are set by the combination of feed roller type and speed of spinning disc rotation.

TM (TWIN METERING) CONTROL

The sophisticated TM controller is supplied with a 4.3” colour touchscreen and has an intuitive layout; displaying the application rate, spread width and forward speed for each unit.

The TM provides cutting edge features such as section control and headland control. It is also capable of applying variable rates in conjunction with an uploaded precision farming map, clearly shown in real time on the control screen.

Fan Jet Duo TM Control Screen
  • 4.3” colour touchscreen
  • Simple and intuitive layout
  • 4 screens – home, parameters, details and mapping
  • Forward speed related metering with GPS
  • Variable rate application (in conjunction with uploaded precision map)
  • Records each job/field and stores in memory

The application rate is automatically controlled according to how much of the spread width is within the already applied section of the coverage map. The software can be programmed to record each job/field, allowing calibration settings and rates to be ‘remembered’ for future use.

FITTING

Most commonly mounted to the chassis of self-propelled sprayers the Duo can also be fitted to a tractor front linkage or to a UTV, as long as the electric power requirements are met.

Both electrical power and height above crop of the spinning disc can be limiting factors in spread width - e.g. a Duo mounted to a UTV has a spread width of 32m, due to the height of the UTV.

An optional front mounting beam positions the pair of Fan Jet Pro Plus at 1.9m apart centre to centre.

The applicators should be lowered for safe filling and emptying as well as the calibration of each applicator and then raised to a working height of 2m.

OPTIONAL CALIBRATION HOPPER

The steel hopper is easily attached to collect the product being spread into a user provided bag for weighing during calibration checks. The calibration aid is supplied as standard with all i-CON models.

WATERPROOF COVERS

All Fan Jet models can be supplied with optional waterproof covers for use when out of work.
