Working on a 3320 Sprayer with the raven smartrax steering valve on it (i'll get the part number off the valve later and or post some pictures it has some din style connectors on it the way it looks) using the smartrax controler and Phoenix antenna. Wondering if it's possible to use that steering valve with another steering controller like an Ag Leader Steer Command. I've done a few trimble to agleader conversions but never tackled a raven setup i've heard they use a different type of valve block to do the steering but if it's not quite plug in play is it possible to change the way the valve block works and still be able to make use of it without having to redo the whole thing? I'm looking to get educated today, thanks in advance.
The valve itself will likely work. The steering overide function on the smartrax valve/system may or may not be compatible with a SteerCommand system. You will need to do enough research to determine what the new controller is looking for in terms of a signal and somehow provide that. In our experience the Trimble valve and the Smartrax valve can be used interchangeably with the SauerDanfoss Plus 1 controller supplied by Leica.
