Cirus Controls SpreadSmart Rx

Cirus Controls SpreadSmart Rx

The SpreadSmart Rx spreader control offers the ability to simultaneously control three media (granular, pre-wet and anti-ice) with a ground speed oriented closed or open loop system. The system is designed to accurately control multiple application rates based on ground speed and sensor feedback. It is a “set it and forget it” operation, where the operator sets the application rates and the system does the rest, starting and stopping dry, pre-wet and anti-ice applications as the vehicle starts and stops, and varying the auger speed and pre-wet/anti-ice pump rates as the vehicle speeds up and slows down to deliver consistent material per lane mile traveled.

  • The base systems utilizes a CPU, Switch panel and LCD screen (with an optional touch screen or color screen to be used with standard switch panel)
  • Optional cables and sensors are needed to handle the granular, prewet and anti- icing application.
  • An optional base system provides data logging that can be accessed via a USB port on the CPU. This station work with the optional wireless bridge card which allows drive by downloading.
  • This system works with electronic and mechanical speedometers or with an optional GPS antenna.
  • Temperature sensors (road watch and surface patrol) are also available as a plug in option
  • One year warranty.
