Dawn Equipment – FurrowTechnik Mapping & Control System
Tech Specs: Dawn Equipment’s FurrowTechnik Mapping & Control System
connects to the user’s Dawn implement PDM for power and communication. With it, the user may collect data on the activity of any DawnFX electro-hydraulic tool. The system connects via Wi-Fi and features maps detailing the performance of the planter’s automated tools (applied planter down force, gauge wheel load, closing wheel applied pressure, closing wheel depth and actual planter depth). To install, the user simply plugs in and connects an iOS device to the FurrowTechnik telemetry controller. Once implement settings are entered, the program requires limited input; the user may change between maps simply by selecting the toolset desired from the menu bar.
The telemetry controller continues to record data, as long as power is supplied.
Veris Tech – iScan
Tech Specs: The iScan is the only real-time system that accurately measures important soil properties such as soil texture and organic matter while performing a normal tillage or planting operation. It now simultaneously measures soil temperature and true soil moisture for the most complete view of the field and the seed environment. The system’s flexibility allows mounting to both tillage and planting equipment. The system can collect data above and below the current planting depth so an operator is able to evaluate conditions at alternative depths.
A real-time display and Bluetooth connection provides growers in-cab visualization. The data stream is adaptable to meet implement control needs and the output files are compatible with all farm software tools.
