Smart pins, washers, and links are placed within a grain planter row unit in which they measure the load on the system, and allow for hydraulic/pneumatic adjustment to ensure proper planting depth while avoiding over compaction.
Manfacturers of agricultural machinery are incoporating an increasing amount of advanced sensor technology in their precision farming equipment. Our custom products are leading the innovation forefront in hydraulic/pneumatic downforce sensors, harvesting yield umonitors, baler sensors, and tractor draft load pins.
Robust and high accuracy grain impact yield monitors are used in agricultural harvesters. This highly engineered product aids farmers in accurately mapping out their harvest yield.
Durable bending beam and single point type load cells are designed to withstand dynamic vibration and overload conditions in order to ensure the provision of reliable grain, seed, and fertilizer tank weights.
The baler plunger load pin is engineered to provide sensing control of the baler capacity and compression force.
Tractor linkage shear pin measures the force between the tractor and the implement. It allows for task specific automatic control of the draft and implement position.
Industry leading custom torque measurement. From internal combustion to electric drive motors, torque is a critical measurement in determining the mechanical efficiency and power distribution in the wheels and implement.
Strain gauges with various creep compensation values are specifically designed for transducer manufacturing. HBM is one of the largest strain gauge manufacturers in the world. Therefore, hundreds of strain gauge designs are available. If one is not available, HBM can design a customized strain gauge to meet your specific needs.
The AED converts the signals supplied by analog load cells into digital data and helps make the implementation of your process control systems easy and convenient.
