UC5™ - Benefits & Features

Discover the Benefits & Features of NORAC Height Control

Sensor 'Smarts'
  • Ultrasonic sensor hardware and software is designed by NORAC specifically for sprayer boom height control applications.
  • Ultrasonic signals can distinguish the difference between the ground and standing crop or field residue.
  • Boom height is controlled by choosing Soil Mode™ or Crop Mode™ which senses the soil surface or the top of the crop.
Optional Active Roll Control™
  • The NORAC system allows for effective control of the boom without altering the boom from its original design.
  • The patented Roll Control™ technology allows the NORAC system to monitor and compensate for boom center section roll.
  • The addition of Active Roll Control™ to the NORAC Spray Height Control system enables the sprayer to go over severe terrain by rolling the center section, as well as controlling wing lift.
  • Spray height is maintained, even in the most severe conditions.
  • Rotating and controlling the center section also increases the wing lift speed.
'Crop Mode™ to Soil Mode™'
  • Automatically maintains a preset tip height above the ground or crop (Soil Mode™ / Crop Mode™).
  • Shows the height that the nozzles tips are from either the top of the crop or the soil.
  • Quick and easy to use with NORAC's automated setup and user-friendly interface.
Rugged, Reliable Non-Contact Ultrasonic Sensors
  • Rugged aluminum sensors are designed for trouble free use.
  • Internal electronics are epoxy sealed making them virtually impervious to moisture damage.
  • The sensor senses changes in height to the nearest half inch.
  • Break-away brackets have been designed to provide superior protection to the sensors. The spring loaded mounting bracket will bend back approximately 90 degrees.
  • Sensors are able to distinguish four different targets simultaneously including differentiating ground surface from standing crop or field residue.
Optional Severe Terrain Package
  • The addition of Active Roll Control™ to the NORAC Spray Height Control system enables the sprayer to go over severe terrain by rolling the center section, as well as controlling wing lift.
  • Spray height is maintained, even in the most severe conditions.
  • Rotating and controlling the center section also increases the wing lift speed.
Proportional Valves
  • A separate NORAC designed proportional valve is used for each wing to ensure smooth independent hydraulic control.
  • Automatic oil temperature monitoring and compensation for superior performance.
  • Load sensing and closed center models are available.
Your Advanced Control.

NORAC brings you Hybrid Mode™, the advanced crop sensing feature for in-crop spraying. Hybrid Mode™ eliminates the need for the operator to take manual control of the boom while spraying in row crops or adverse situations such as lodged, thin and uneven crop. Only NORAC provides the boom stability and spray height accuracy you can trust in all field conditions. Guaranteed.

Hybrid Mode™ In-Crop Benefits:

  • Increases the amount of time that the boom is within the target spray height, reducing drift and promoting efficient application of chemicals and fertilizers
  • Controls the boom at a rate that is faster than an operator could control it
  • Takes over situations in which the operator would have to take manual control over boom functions
  • Increased boom stability in Automatic Mode reduces boom height error

Spray Day or Night
  • NORAC's ultrasonic sensors do not need light to measure boom height.
  • Take advantage of favorable spraying conditions by extending working hours well into the night with the ability to spray any time.
Spray Day or Night
Reduce Drift
  • Maintain the boom at an entered preset height.
  • Maintaining spray nozzles at the recommended spray tip height allows chemicals to be applied using an optimum spray pattern.
  • Allows even application and reduces drift.
Reduce Drift
Fast & Reliable
  • Uses sensor data to make responsive height adjustments allowing the boom to automatically follow the contours of the land.
Fast & Reliable
Reduce Stress & Avoid Boom Damage
  • The NORAC Spray Height Control systems takes control of managing the boom by monitoring field contours and making constant boom adjustments.
  • Reduces the need for the operator to move their head back and forth to monitor changes in field terrain, thereby reducing stress and fatigue.
  • Focus on proper safety and coverage.
Reduce Stress
Accurate, Smooth Control
  • The NORAC systems use the stepless output of proportional valves for each wing providing a more uniform method of boom control.
  • NORAC supplied proportional valves ensure that height corrections are smooth, even and automatic.
Accurate Smooth Control
