Sprayers with Original GreenStar Display (GSD4)

It is not recommended to reprogram the sprayer controller with the latest software update unless specifically required! Usually the EHC-2 switchbox already has the latest software installed (see notes below).

NOTE: The sprayer software available for downloaded is only for machines with the 1 MB CPU number WZ8814071. This CPU is used since machine number WZ0****003654, and replacing the earlier 64 kB CPU WZ8814051, that had not enough memory for running BoomTrac, FieldDoc and the TwinFluid low drift settings. In some cases WZ8814071 was retrofitted on earlier sprayers (with software version 1.18).

If the downloaded software is installed it will show a new symbol in your startup menu. Be sure to have the Keycard in the computer before clicking this icon. The new software will automatically be installed on the Keycard.

ATTENTION: If you want to reprogram with this Keycard the JD Horst Sprayer you must always download the sprayer software (as last step) from Stellar Support after other AMS software has been downloaded to the keycard. If this is not done, it will not be possible to reprogram the sprayer controller on the JD Horst Sprayer.

Please verify what software you need before downloading:
  • If equipped with 2.01* it should be upgraded with 2.01X and boomtrac 1.01E.
  • If equipped with 2.00* and it has to be updated to 2.01X because of BoomTrac, TwinFluid low drift settings, and/or the need for Danish, Estonian, Croatian, Hungarian, or Lithuanian language files it is necessary to bootstrap the CPU according instructions in following .pdf file with attached LH-Upload program (included in SprayerTools download).
  • In case a machine with CPU WZ8814051 is updated with a new CPU WZ8814071, the new CPU has already been bootstrapped. Than not only 2.01X must be installed on the CPU, but also the control box EHC2 has to be updated with software version 1.12. See instruction WZ2971082 (included in SprayerTools download). If the control box EHC2 has software version 1.20 nothing has to be installed.

  • Horst Sprayer 2.01X & Boom Trac 1.01E (03/04/06)
  • Sprayer Tools (LHupload, Bootstrap, EHC2 tools)
