Seed drill area measurement is done with one sensor on the input shaft to the seeder metering system. The monitor will display area to 0.000 of a hectare and will flash HOLD on the display when not in area measurement mode.
Mowers and windrowers fitted with a field mate monitor will get the distance travelled measurement from a ground wheel sensor, and another sensor with monitor when the implement is working, hence going into HOLD in the head lands, and when the implement is placed on to the ground again the area measurement resumes. The monitors can be supplied displaying AREA only, using the 2 arrow buttons to set the PULSE DISTANCE and the working width of the implement. Additionally, the monitors can be supply with any or all of the following to suit your budget or machine needs:
- Fan monitoring
- Low bin detection
- Hour timers
- Report downloading to office computer
- Low speed shaft monitoring
- High speed shaft monitoring
- Clock and calendar
The kit can be supplied as the monitor only, or fully built up into a plug and go solution with wiring loom and all sensors ready to plug in. Talk to us, we are here to help.
