Navigate and control load cell information.
Updated June 29, 2020
Navigate to load cells
Find load cell information and control for zeroing and disabling load cells:
- Go to "Setup"
- Go to "Diagnose"
- Go to "Load Cells"
- From here, choose to zero load cell values by pressing "Zero All" at the bottom of the page, if appropriate.
Ensure the planter is raised when zeroing load cells.
This displays the current weight measured on each individual row.
This identifies the module type the load cell is plugged into.
This displays the status of each load cell. Select a row in the status column to disable, or ignore, the load cell on that row. Make it active again by selecting that row in the status column.
If a load cell is ignored, that row will control DeltaForce to the 80th percentile of all other properly-operating rows.
This is a value used to give a load cell a true zero. A healthy reference value is between 28 and 36. Reference values vary across the planter; however, all should be within the healthy range.
If the system suspects an issue with a load sensor, it will automatically ignore that load sensor.
The calibration factor auto-populates based on the planter make and model selected, as well as the down force sensor type.
