Enable and deactivate SpeedTube using Cab Control Module.
Updated January 7, 2021
SpeedTubes will operate anytime the Master Plant or a single Section Plant switch is active on the Cab Control Module. If the planter is not moving (lifted or lowered), SpeedTubes will operate at a minimum belt speed. To deactivate SpeedTube operation, the Master Plant and all three Section Plant switches must be off.
Increased vacuum is sometimes necessary when operating SpeedTube at higher speeds. This will help limit seeds from dropping off the disk (due to increased rough ride) before reaching the feeder wheels.
Ride Quality Metric
Ride Quality is of limited significance when SpeedTube is installed across the whole planter. As long as other planting metrics ( SRI, ground contact, etc.) are acceptable, “poor” Ride Quality will not impact performance. Operators should not limit speed based solely on Ride Quality. The “Smooth Ride Limit” can be adjusted as needed by going to Setup – Crops – Limit Adjustments.
