BENCO’s Motor Controllers are a simple and inexpensive way to manually adjust your liquid application rates from the cab of your tractor. This allows you to apply more fertilizer or pesticide to the areas of your field that need it and less on the areas that don’t.
The premise is simple, we vary the amount of power going to the pumps on your system, like a dimmer on a light. This turns the system pressure up or down, increasing or decreasing flow rates to your nozzles and changing the rate at which your liquid is applied to the field. This may not be as advanced as the fully automated systems, but it achieves similar results for a fraction of the cost.
Just turn the knob on the control box in your cab whenever you need to vary the flow to the field. The digital readout will give you direct feedback of current system pressure.
This is an ideal companion to OnSite FMS, which monitors the exact flow rate of liquid going to each row in real time. With BENCO Motor Controls varying pressure and OnSite monitoring flow rates, you get full application rate control and real time monitoring of your application rates without the expense of a full precision ag system.

Motor controllers are a little old-school, and that’s just how we like it. They allow you to vary application rates to different parts of your field manually. They may not be automated like the bigger fully automated systems, but they can give you the same fine grain control of how much liquid fertilizer you are applying to your fields for a small fraction of the cost of a full precision ag setup.
You know your fields. You know how you want to apply chemical to them. BENCO Motor Controllers give you the ability to achieve extremely accurate application rates in the field for several hundred dollars instead of tens of thousands of dollars. Because our system varies the pump output directly, we can adjust system pressure faster and and maintain it more accurately than the traditional butterfly valves. As an added bonus, you’ll generally see longer life from your pumps as well.
Precision farming is great. It can help every field produce at its maximum potential. However, the systems are extremely expensive and complex. They just don’t make sense for many smaller farmers.
BENCO’s Motor Controllers are a simple alternative to the expense and complexity of a full precision setup. You can get the same precise control your application rates for a few hundred dollars rather than tens of thousands of dollars. The system often pays for itself in fertilizer savings the first year you own it, even for a smaller farmer.
Not only is the BENCO Motor Controller extremely affordable, it replaces expensive hydraulic pumps with more affordable electric pumps, potentially saving you thousands on the pump and freeing up a hydraulic circuit on your tractor.
BENCO Motor Controllers work with any system that uses electric pumps, regardless of manufacturer. The BENCO Motor Controller simply plugs in before the pump and controls the power to the pump. No additional hardware to upgrade.
BENCO Motor Controllers include a BENCO custom wiring harness to make installation a breeze. We have cables designed to work with almost any setup you could have. If you do run into problems, our skilled techs are here to help get your system up and running in no time.
If you already have a precision ag setup, but are out of hydraulic circuits, a BENCO PWM Motor Controller may be the perfect solution. Switching your hydraulic pumps to electric not only frees up a hydraulic circuit, but can actually give you better control when paired with a PWM Controller.
BENCO’s PWM Motor Controller takes the universal Pulse Width Modulation feed from your existing field computer and uses it to precisely vary the output of the electric pumps running your planter or sprayer.
A BENCO PWM Motor Controller replaces the traditional regulating valve by adjusting the pump pressure directly. Regulating the pumps themselves gives you faster, more precise application rate adjustment than a traditional butterfly valve setup while increasing pump life. Our PWM Controller is compatible with ANYTHING that puts out a PWM signal.
Save money, get more control, and free up a hydraulic circuit with a BENCO PWM Motor Controller.

Combine OnSite FMS with your BENCO Motor Controller for even more precise control of your application rates.
This is such a perfect combination, that we usually recommend buying these together.
When you combine the precise pressure control from the BENCO Motor Controller with the full visibility of OnSite FMS, you have a simple, manual version of a precision farming setup. This combined system can achieve similar application rate control to a precision ag setup for less than the cost of the field computer alone on other systems.
