This new wireless blockage monitor prevents blockage for air-seeders while seeding using innovative acoustic technology, which differs from the popular optical sensors. Using sound it can detect if seed is flowing smoothly or if there is a block. Very time efficient and economic for farmers.
The monitor works like a stethoscope, monitoring sound pulses as the seed “pings” off stainless steel sensors. The sound travels down to the ECU where it transmits through a wifi connection to the cab of the tractor. This design uses an iPad to display readings.
