*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 the Intelligent Dust Compensation 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 Intelligent Dust Compensation, relying on dust test information, automatically compensate the sensibility. High accuracy of detection will be maintained by this solution.
***During Intelligent Sensitivity Calibration process the sensor evaluates the flow characteristic and determine the most appropriate sensibility level to actual seed or granulate flow.
