Application: Manure Distributor

System interface: Integrated amplifier with analogue outlet


Loadpins are used on tractors with manure distributors,  to mesure the forces acting on the on the coupled fertilizer spreader.


The manure distributor is raised by three-point hitch. The loadpins are mounted in the lift rods, to mesure the forces at the lower links. Too much weight can cause damage to the tractor. Using a SPS, the measured values were transmitted via analogue outlet.

This technique can prove that mass of fertilizer still is in the manure distributor.  On the basis of such values ​​can be calculated how much fertilizer per hectare of land has been consumed.
