DAWN EQUIPMENT — X-Sense Load Sensor


Tech Specs: A new precision farming tool available for the Dawn MiFx Network is the X-Sense Load Sensor from Dawn Equipment. The system is a tough, compact hydraulic cylinder that couples to the depth stop on the planter row unit. An integral pressure transducer detects gauge wheel load with much higher resolution than a traditional load cell, and is not sensitive to the ambient electrical noise or temperature variation that commonly degrades the performance of a strain gauge. The sensor is available for John Deere and Kinze planters.

Compatibility Index: Available Factory Installed

Wow Stamp

WOW Factor: An industry exclusive, the sensing system dampens the ambient noise created by 2-way radios that can effect output of the strain gauge by 1,000 pounds due to signal interference.
