The History Of RDS
Back in 2015 RDS North East and RDS South joined forces to create one RDS company and brand. It was in 1969 that RDS TEC first appeared on the UK market, leading with the use of electronics in agricultural applications. It all started with combine harvesters, and an electronic device to monitor grain loss. In 1980 RDS pursued a slightly different path, introducing the first sprayer regulation and control system, the ‘Rate Governor 80.’
Skip forward a few years to 1986; RDS developed the renowned RDS Weighlog, the very first on-board weighing system.
The journey has only just begun for RDS, in 1989 the Loadmaster 5000 arrived, a uniquely designed RDS weighing system created for wheel loaders. The Loadmaster is now used in a wide variety of industrial applications. Just one year later, RDS technology became involved in the field of precision farming, developing the Ceres Yield Monitor, designed to measure the grain yield and this exciting venture soon facilitated the creation of Plotplan software.
The year was 1995, and RDS still wasn’t short of innovative new projects. The Genie was introduced, a control system and spray monitor specifically for the fruit farming industry. Still the story was far from over for RDS, elite products such as the trade approvable Loadmaster 9000, Spraymaster 200, Weighlog Alpha 10, and the Loadex excavator weighing system were developed in the years that followed.
Development continues at RDS with even greater emphasis on data management connecting the workplace with stock control and productivity monitoring systems such as iSOSYNC and Sitelink.
