Follow the operation and safety instructions included with the implement and/or controller. Before installing or operating this Raven system, review and understand the information presented on this site.

  • Review equipment operation with your local dealer and follow all safety information presented on this site.
  • Contact a local Raven dealer for assistance with any portion of the installation, service, or operation of Raven equipment.
  • Follow all safety labels affixed to system components. Be sure to keep safety labels in good condition and replace any missing or damaged labels. Contact a local Raven dealer to obtain replacements for safety labels.

Observe the following safety measures when operating the implement after installing this Raven system:

  • Do not operate this Raven system or any agricultural equipment while under the influence of alcohol or an illegal substance.
  • Be alert and aware of surroundings while operating this Raven system.
    • Determine and remain a safe working distance from obstacles and bystanders. The operator is responsible for disabling the system when a safe working distance has diminished.
    • Do not operate the implement on any public road with this Raven system enabled.
    • Maintain control of the vehicle at all times during operation. For example,
      • Remain in the operator seat while the system is enabled and disable automated Raven controls before exiting the operator seat.
      • Maintain control of safety devices such as E-StopClosed Emergency stop button or switch.s at all times during operation.
    • Disable this Raven system prior to starting any maintenance work on the implement or components of this Raven system.
  • Do not attempt to modify or lengthen any of the system control cables. Extension cables are available from a local Raven dealer.

Field Computers, Displays, and Control Consoles

  • If the display will not be used for an extended period, it is best to remove the display from the machine and store it in a climate controlled environment. This may help to extend the service life of electronic components.
  • To prevent theft, secure the display and GNSSClosed Global Navigation Satellite System antenna when leaving the machine unattended.

danger

Autonomous Equipment

  • Improper use of autonomous equipment, or faulty route planning, may cause property damage, personal injury, or death.
    • Instruct personnel working in the operational area and vicinity of the autonomous tractor of safety procedures and use of the tractor Lockout Switch.
    • As an autonomous vehicle, the machine may move without an operator in the seat. Maintain a safe distance from the machine while the OMNiDRIVE™ system is enabled for autonomous operation.
    • Do not ride in the autonomous vehicle during autonomous operation. The vehicle may change direction, speed, or stop without warning.
  • The OMNiDRIVE™ system is a supervised autonomous system. It is the site supervisor or operator's responsibility to monitor the condition of the autonomous vehicle.
    • Daily inspections are required to ensure that the tractor and grain cart are in operational condition.
      • The OMNiDRIVE™ system does not monitor mechanical systems on either the tractor or grain cart.
      • During autonomous operation, no one will be in the tractor to observe the tractor or grain cart. It is recommended to check the operational condition of the tractor and grain cart periodically over the course of daily autonomous operation.
    • Monitor field conditions and the operational area. Suspend autonomous operations when safe conditions or hazards exist for autonomous operations.
    • By accepting a planned route, you are accepting all responsibility for the operation of the autonomous equipment and the route which was planned.
      • Ensure there are no obstacles in the path of the equipment prior to movement.

caution

Electrical Safety

  • Always verify that power leads are connected to the correct polarity as marked. Reversing the power leads could cause severe damage to the Raven system or other components.
  • To prevent personal injury or fire, replace defective or blown fuses with only fuses of the same type and amperage.
  • Do not connect the system power cable to the vehicle ignition or battery until all system components are mounted and all electrical connections are completed.
  • Always start the machine before initializing this Raven system to prevent power surges or peak voltage.
  • To avoid tripping and entanglement hazards, route cables and harnesses away from walkways, steps, grab bars, and other areas used by the operator or service personnel when operating or servicing the equipment.

Touch Screen

  • Only touch the touch-screen with your finger or by using a special touch-screen stylus or pen. Operating the touch-screen with sharp objects may cause permanent damage to the screen.
  • Only clean the screen using a damp cloth. Never use caustic or other aggressive substances.
