High Capacity and Versatile

Seed-flow/blockage monitoring for air drills, seed count and population display for planters, granular fertilizer flow control, hopper level control, shaft rotation guard, fan rpm, hectare counter, tramline regulation – all in one instrument! The robust, versatile device aimed for use all year round. Integra is capable to process and display the performance of 128 rows at a time on its large illuminated graphic screen. Integra was designed to best fit user’s demand with handy operation and easy survey of seeding process. Two i-LiNE ports enable monitoring of different application rates for seed and fertilizer rows. Easy operation is ensured by direct keys and control LEDs.

Seed-flow calibration has never been easier. Just one touch of a button and expected seed-flow with low rate alarm is on the right level. At any seed, at any speed. Slowly developing processes like lowering seed rates due to lowering seed level in hopper can also be observed, not only blockages.

Seed Blockage Sensors

DS4000i optomodules are made for seedflow monitoring on drills. Optomodules contain photosensors equipped with 4 infra lights and detect even the smallest seeds like oilrape seed. Seeds do not need to be filled up in the hose reaching seed sensors. Thanks to the easy and precise seed-flow calibration, blockages are detected immediately or soon.


Sensor Features

• Seed flow/blockage detection (DS4000i)
• Linear connection of sensors up to 128 rows
• Calibration of expected seed density
• Available for air hoses with 25-35 mm diameter
• Particle detection with 4 infras
• Quick sensor cleaning by opening sensor by hand without tool

Long Work Without Cleaning – Each Digitroll seed sensor is armored with DUST DETECTION & COMPENSATION (DDC) feature resulting long days and hours spent without sensor cleaning in the hassle of short seeding season. Increasingly stronger infra light is applied when infra surface becomes dusty or seed coating covered. Reaching a level, a ‘dusty seed sensor’ symbol appears on monitor screen following a push of the TEST button. This solution is a Patented Technology by Digitroll.

Fertilizer Blockage Sensors

DSGR 4000i blockage sensors detect solid fertilizer flow continuity on precision planters, air drills or mechanic drills. Each optomodule possess an intelligent processor unit run by microcontroller. Linear connection and interchangeability make installation easy done in short time.


Sensor Features

• Granular fertilizer flow/blockage detection (DSGR4000i)
• Linear connection of sensors up to 128 rows
• Calibration of expected fertilizer density
• Available for air hoses with 25-35 mm diameter
• Particle detection with 4 infras

*The minimum detectable object or particle size is depends on the objects or particles speed and the sensors optical elements dust status.
**Sensor cleaning is rarely due, thanks to Dust Detection & Compensation (DDC) function, so the operator can seed large areas without cleaning the sensors, allowing him to get the most out of the short seeding time at optimum conditions. The cleaning alarm is an unmatched solution to determine sensor dust level, then Dust Compensation, relying on dust test information, automatically compensate the sensibility. High sensitivity of blockage detection will be maintained by this solution. This solution is a Patented Technology by Digitroll.
