The Belrobotics BallPicker Connected automates the collecting of range balls at driving ranges.
This patented world exclusive reduces human intervention, generating significant savings.
Staff can stop wasting their energy on this ongoing chore, and the time they saved can be spent on more useful and rewarding activities.
The robot ball collector protects staff from injury.
Driving range opening hours can be extended as BallPicker operates non-stop, all without being damaged by or annoying your golfers.
The robot’s in-built programming activates 5 rollers or 4 discs, for quiet and systematic collection.
This feature ensures there is absolute safety. The obstacle detectors that send signals to change the direction of the robot or to stop it if necessary.
BallPicker offers range operators a continued supply of range balls.
On very busy days, if the ball collector is unable to pick up the balls as quickly as they are played (very rare), it catches up during the night or on a calmer day.
GPS determines the shortest route back to the ball pit/charging station. Since the time required to return to base is reduced to a strict minimum, offers productivity gains for managers.
The more balls, the better, BallPicker works best when there is a large number of balls on the driving range.
The BallPicker Connected has a 300 ball tank.
Once the ball tank is full, it returns to base to unload its balls and charge its batteries.
In just a few seconds, the balls are emptied into the ball pit. They are then washed and transported to ball dispenser via the AMS Wash & Return System
The BallPicker Connected robot has multizone programming. Therefore at peak times, it can concentrate solely on the area where most balls land.
For instance, the high concentration of balls improves BallPicker’s effectiveness. As well as allow it to pick up a large number of balls quickly and supply enough balls to the golfers.
Similarly, at night or on quieter days, the BallPicker picks up balls outside this high-density area.
Therefore the driving range manager can adapt the operating modes to the number of golfers. Moreover, BallPicker can be controlled remotely by the Belrobotics App.
Your robot ball collector works autonomously, which is due to carefully worked out programming.
To make your life even easier, the BallPicker is connected to a web portal, for monitoring.
Furthermore, you can also manage your fleet of robot mowers entirely from your tablet or your smartphone.
Powered by electricity the ball collector robot emits no exhaust fumes or smells. Overall its yearly power usage is similar to that of a refrigerator.
In addition, its CO2 emissions are 10 x less when compared to petrol-powered collectors.
Traditional ball collecting machines create significant noise pollution, unlike BallPicker which is almost silent.
Inaudible from just a few metres away, it works 24/7 without disturbing golfers or local residents.
The robot ball collector doesn’t embed the balls into the ground, so they remain easily retrievable. This saves the club thousands of balls per year.
