Monitoring device for precision planters with seed counting
PRECIMAT is a monitoring device for precision planters with seed counting. Up to 12 seeding units can be monitored with optosensors (optical sensors). It is also possible to shut off up to 12 seeding units. Alternatively, on implements with more than 12 rows, it is also possible not to use any monitoring and instead install up to 18 shutoffs for seeding units. In addition to precision planting, the PRECIMAT can also be used as a hectare counter for all other applications.
The falling corn seeds are detected by the optosensor (infra-red barrier). Each seed triggers a pulse in the on-board integrated display/controller, which monitors each row for a predefi ned target rate. If the deviation from the target rate is more than 15 %, an acoustic and visual alarm is issued. The number of the faulty seeding unit is shown on the display along with the seeds/ha (x 1,000). In addition, a pointing arrow appears above the seeding unit icon. Pre-selection is made with the “Switch on/shut off from the left or right” buttons. The “- button” is used to shut off and the “+ button” for switching on.
The PRECIMAT also determines the following data:
