A farmer wants to measure the forces applied on their tractor’s draft control, between the tractor and any linked on attachments. Measuring the force will help the farmer be able sense any strains on the hitch of the tractor, and will be needed in order to apply any specific settings to the draft control when the tractor encounters rough terrain. A wireless system is needed in order to log the force data.
Interface’s WTSLP Wireless Stainless Steel Load Pin is a wireless load pin that can be installed directly in the hitch, replacing the normal shear pin of the tractor. Force results are transmitted wirelessly to the WTS-BS-4 USB Industrial Base Station, where the customer can view the results on their PC computer or Laptop with the supplied WTS toolkit. The customer can also view results on the WTSBS-1-HS Handheld Display for Single Transmitters in real-time.
The customer is able to determine the specific draft control settings for their tractor after using Interface’s custom solution Wireless Load Pin and Wireless Telemetry System products.
