Raven improves Hawkeye Nozzle Control System

Raven Industries’ Applied Technology Division has announced ground-breaking new enhancements to its innovative Hawkeye Nozzle Control System. The enhancements include virtual section capability, Sidekick Pro direct injection compatibility, new sprayer kits, and Hawkeye HD – individual nozzle on/off.

Hawkeye HD

Hawkeye HD will give customers individual nozzle on/off with unparalleled precision that reduces costly skips or overlaps. Customers currently using Hawkeye can upgrade to HD with a simple unlock – no need to change hardware to take advantage of this feature. 

Virtual Section Capability

Virtual section capability allows the operator to program additional sections for on/off control, with up to sixteen sections through the Viper 4 field computer. This feature comes on the Hawkeye base system and provides more section control and a higher ROI than traditional shut-off systems.

Sidekick Pro Direct Injection Compatibility

Sidekick Pro direct injections allows for injecting additional chemicals in the line as needed without worrying about tank mixing or clean out at the end of the day. Direct injection provides greater flexibility in applications, so you can handle weed resistance and other challenges operators face every day. Hawkeye can now accommodate the use of up to five injection systems on one machine when used with a Viper 4 field computer. 

New Sprayer Kits

Hawkeye offers a more consistent application rate across the entire width of the boom for many different sprayers. Kits are now available on Case IH, AGCO, New Holland, Miller, and Equipment Technologies sprayers – and coming soon on John Deere and Fast Nitrogen applicators.
