Going to tee into the analog pressure gauge, mounted to the 3 point sprayer with a raven pressure transducer and associated raven wiring to the direct command and the integra.
Have not ran a direct command system with a pressure transducer. Is there a setpoint that will announce a audible sound and/or popup window, like the setpoint of a remaing tank volume? If not, has anyone added a external buzzer or light, tee'd into the harness to allow such a warning?
I have used a Direct Command system in several situations for several years but have never used a pressure transducer. I do have a manual pressure gauge that I can consult if I have doubts although realistically, I don't use it much. I have been opposed to electronic pressures sensors mainly due to their cost.
As far as an audible sound or popup window on the display, I don't believe there is such. I have made use of the tank low count down feature that you mention although I don't really use that much either. My tanks are easily visible from the cab and I have a mental idea of how far they should go.
I have been playing around last Winter and this with the Arduino microcontroller concept. It would be fairly easy to use one of these and a pressure transducer to create a display and/or alarm. This would be totally separate from the Ag Leader system but could incorporate a small display/warning light/audible alarm. I might even try to put one together as a hobby project since I have the parts available. Even if successful I doubt that I would put it to actual use since I haven't really had any pressure concerns.
