Title
(EN) DYNAMICALLY CONTROLLABLE SPRAY NOZZLE, CONTROL SYSTEM, AND METHOD
(FR) BUSE DE PULVÉRISATION À COMMANDE DYNAMIQUE, SYSTÈME DE COMMANDE ET PROCÉDÉ
Abstract
(EN) A dynamically-controllable spray nozzle (100), and associated control system and methods of use, has applicability in agricultural spraying and in other processes and devices in which spray nozzles are used. In an embodiment, a deformable nozzle (100) may be compressed by one or more actuators (200, 205) to alter a nozzle's exit orifice (110) in a continuously variable manner.
(FR) Une buse de pulvérisation (100) pouvant être commandée de manière dynamique, et un système de commande associé et des procédés d'utilisation, peuvent être employés pour la pulvérisation agricole et dans d'autres procédés et dispositifs dans lesquels des buses de pulvérisation sont utilisées. Dans un mode de réalisation, une buse déformable (100) peut être comprimée par un ou plusieurs actionneurs (200, 205) pour modifier l'orifice de sortie (110) de la buse d'une manière variable en continu.
