The objective of this study was to improve the spraying efficiency and meet the demand of modern agricultural. A new generation of electrostatic sprayer which we designed realized the goals. The automatic controlling system is successfully designed. PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) was taken as the control core of the system and LCD touch screen was employed for human-computer interaction interface. The system integrates kinds of techniques including programming, pressure monitoring and sensor technology, etc. The main structure of this equipment, working principle and control system hardware selection will be also introduced in the study. Human-computer interaction software was programmed by the software of Pro Tool/Pro CS. System controlling software was programmed in form of ladder diagram, which realized kinds of functions including ESD protection, accurate quantification, automatic controlling and humanized operation. Test results show that the effective spraying range is between 5 to 6 m, the Volume Median Diameter (VMD) is 47.48 Ám and the Ultra-Low Volume spray (ULV) is realized. The spray deposition rate and effective availability of pesticide is higher than old sprayer. And also this new sprayer runs steadily.
