I use a couple of RFM 15s on my planter.
One is in the starter fertilizer line and goes to an Ag Leader Application Rate Module. This module just monitors and does not control the flow. To change the starter rate, I need to change the stroke on the li' Thumper ground driven piston pump.
The other is for spray. I run a hydraulic Hypro centrifugal pump with a Raven RFM 15 and a 1" Raven control valve plumed inline. The output leads to two ON/OFF valves on each wing (4 - 6 row sections). This is controlled by an Ag Leader Liquid Product Control Module. Both modules as well as some others for seed work with my InCommand 1200.
I am not attempting to do any VR so I just set the hydraulics for the Hypro at a level to provide a bit more flow than I ever need.
