CropScanAg CropScan 4000VT On Combine NIR Grain Analyser

Wednesday, 07 February, 2024 | Supplied by: CropScanAg

CropScanAg has released the CropScan 4000VT On Combine NIR Grain Analyser fully integrated version of the CropScan analysers. The system is ISOBUS compatible with the latest CASE IH and New Holland brand of combines. It runs a Virtual Terminal within the CNHi Pro 700 and Intelliview IV combine monitors.

The product includes a remote Sample Head that is fitted to the clean grain elevator of the combine, a fibre-optic cable, communications cable and a waterproof and dustproof NIR spectrometer that is mounted on the wall of the combine outside the cabin. The NIR spectrometer includes an electronic control unit that runs the CropScan software and reads the combine’s CANBUS messages. The CAN messages for yield, GPS, crop type, grower-farm-field, rotor engage and more are read by the CropScan ECU to control operation and data collection.

It is integrated into the CNHi Pro 700 and Intelliview IV monitors using a purpose-designed VT screen. Once turned on, the screen is available on the Pro 700 and Intelliview IV monitors. The operator simply selects the Crop Type and Grower-Farm-Field menus. Once the rotor is engaged by the operator, the CropScan begins to analyse the grain as it is collected in the Remote Sample Head. The protein, moisture, oil, starch and fibre are calculated and combined with the yield and GPS data from the CANBUS messages and then sent to the VT screen. Results are displayed on the VT screen every 3-4 s.

The field data is stored in the ECU and then sent to the CropScanAg Cloud Server, where users can access grain logistics, field maps and advanced analytics and performance maps using the N-GAUGE apps.
