Question: I have a Rate Not Responding message flashing on the top of the my display. What does this mean?

 

Answer: This message will appear when you are off of your target rate according to Rate Error Alarm. This setting defaults to a threshold of 30% and timeout of 5 seconds. This means the display will alarm you with a Rate Not Responding message when you are off the target rate by 30% for more than 5 seconds.

“Rate Not Responding” mode can be helpful when troubleshooting other machine issues such as a flow meter not reading product flow, boom and/or control valves not opening. To put the system into “Rate Not Responding” mode, a few conditions have to be met.

  1. AutoSwath must be turned off.
  2. Manual Speed must be entered.
  3. Target Rate must be entered.
  4. Implement Switch jumper installed [auxiliary port on the CAN A Liquid Module / implement switch module for ISO Liquid (if applicable)]
  5. Master switch and boom switches turned on.

As a Reminder:

Check the flow meter calibration number pulse/gal matches the tag on the flow meter, and your product units are set up correctly.

Raven flow meter calibration numbers need to be divided by 10 and Micro-Trak calibration numbers need to be divided by 2. Any other flow meter brand calibration number should be entered into the display with out any modification as long as it is a pulse/gal calibration number.
