document Q: Do I have to perform weight calibrations at the beginning of harvest?
Question: Do I have to perform the weight calibrations at the beginning of harvest? Answer: No. You may calibrate the monitor anytime during the harvest season for weight. When you perform the weight calibration it will adjust all previously harvested loads. Refer to the most recent version of your displays User Guide or Manual to accurately calibrate for Harvest.

document Q: How often do I need to perform calibrations?
Question: How often do I need to perform calibrations? Answer: Harvest calibrations must be completed at least once per harvest product used. Calibrate once per season for best results. Refer to the most recent version of your displays User Guide or Manual to accurately calibrate for Harvest.

document Q: Do I need to recalibrate every time I change from harvesting one type of grain to another?
Question: During the harvest season, I switch between harvesting corn and soybeans. Do I need to recalibrate every time I change grain types? Answer: No (and yes.) You have to calibrate the display once for each harvest product. (Corn, Soybeans, Wheat) The calibrations remain attached to that harvest product for the entire season. You are able to move from one crop to another as harvest conditions dictate. Additionally only vibration calibration and header height calibration are required before...

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 Harvest Calibration C Values Resetting Due to Poor Vibration Calibration
This article walks through the process of resetting a flow sensor that has a poor vibration calibration and is causing the calibration values to reset. Symptoms experienced I’ve calibrated the system and see flow and yield but after power cycling my yield becomes inaccurate. When I check my calibration “C numbers” the values look incorrect values should be ascending in value starting with C1 C1 should be negative on legacy displays and InCommand firmware v2.2 and older. On InCommand...
