document Q: How can I get accurate readings all season?
Question: Towards the end of harvest, my yield monitor was not as accurate as it was when I first calibrated it. How can I get accurate readings all season? Answer: Key factors that affect accuracy throughout the harvest season are crop moisture and grain flow rates changes caused by yield and speed variations. If the average yield/speed is different when compared to original calibration, adding a calibration load/loads at the currently yield/speed should improve the calibration. If moisture is...

document Q: Why can I not load my harvest configuration to the run screen?
Question: Why can I not load my harvest configuration to the run screen? Answer: The CAN-based displays (e.g. InCommand, Ag Leader® Integra, Versa, InSight, EDGE) must recognize the operation's respective modules on the CAN bus in order to load the run screen. For harvest, this means the Flow Sensor module, Speed module and Moisture module must be on the CAN bus. To see if the modules are on the CAN bus, select the...

document Q: After changing initially, why is my moisture reading locked on the same percentage?
Question: After changing initially, why is my moisture reading locked on the same percentage? Answer: When the moisture reading isn't changing, this is most likely being caused by the EMU motor not turning - therefore grain is stagnant in front of the moisture sensor.                                                                    ...

document Q: Why is my harvest area count inaccurate?
Question: Why is my area count inaccurate? Answer: For harvest field operation, area is calculated by looking at speed and swath. First, make sure the header width (swath) is entered correctly. Also be sure to make sure that area cuts on and off when the header is lifted and set properly for the crop type.  Another consideration is speed source. Make sure the AutoSwath sensitivity level is set properly for the correction source being used (e.g. set to level 3 for a 5 Hz WAAS receiver, level 5 for...

document Q: Why is my moisture reading staying at 5% or 0%?
Question: Why is my moisture reading staying at 5% or 0%? Answer: First, make sure the manual moisture setting isn't check-marked. This setting is found under the calibrate moisture button on the run screen. Next, ensure the EMU chamber and moisture sensor are not plugged up with green matter or mud. Clean the chamber and blade of the moisture sensor. Another symptom of a low moisture reading is the EMU motor may be constantly running or not running at all. The harvest diagnostics page will display...

document Q: What alarms if a main drive chain slips off to where zero rows are planting (STMM)?
Question: What happens if a main drive chain slips off and no rows are planting? Answer: With the Seed Tube Monitor Module (STMM) (with or without clutches) all the rows with zero seed flow will alarm as long as the implement switch is tripped and ground speed is present. The "No Seed Flow" alarm will flash on the screen and an audible alarm will be present.

document Q: What will alarm with the Planter Monitor Module if a row goes into a high/low seed flow situation?
Question: What will alarm with the PMM when a row goes to high/low seed flow? Answer: When high or low seed flow is recognized on a row (seed flow is high/lower than the % threshold), a warning will appear on screen listing the offending row(s) and will be accompanied by an audible alarm as well as a seed rate warning across the top of the screen.  The population bar graph will also show red at the corresponding % level of the threshold setting, e.g. row 3 threshold was 100%.
