Introduction
Introduction
The monitor utilizes a multiplexed data communication
system to monitor the functions of the Air Cart. In the
multiplexed system, all sensors communicate with the
monitor on the same three wires.
The system can monitor and display status of the
following functions:
• Fan speed
• Ground speed
• Shaft speeds (up to 3)
• Bin levels (up to 3)
• Flow Blockage (up to 192 runs)
An audio alarm will sound upon detection of: low or high
fan speed, low shaft speed, low bin level and failure of
sensors. Also, loss of flow in any runs that are being
monitored with Blockage Modules will generate alarms.
Audio alarms persist until the alarm condition is removed
or until the alarm is acknowledged by the operator by
pressing the appropriate soft key.
MONITOR - N44049
In addition, the monitor can determine and display:
• Field Area
• Total Area
• Application Rate (weight per unit area) (VRT systems
only)
The monitor allows the following settings to be changed:
• High and Low fan speed alarm point
• Low shaft speed alarm point for 3 meter shafts
• Ground speed pulses per 400 ft and pulses per
revolution
• Pulses per revolution of fan and 3 meter shafts
• Low bin alarm for 3 bins
• The number of Blockage Modules that are connected
to the monitor
• The width of the implement
• Imperial or metric units
• English or Russian language
The settings listed above, as well as field and
accumulated areas are stored in nonvolatile memory.
This means that the information is retained even when
power is disconnected.
Two cables exit the rear of the monitor. There is a two
wire power cable that connects to the tractor power
supply. The other is a three wire cable that brings power
and communications to the remote sensors through the
main harness.

Sensor Installation
The installation procedure is required to configure the
monitor to the sensors attached to it.
The operator may have to redo the installation if:
1) An extra tank is added to the Air Cart.
Note: Each monitor is unique to the sensors installed.
If monitor is moved to another Air Cart it has
to be reprogrammed to match the sensors.
2) Replacing or adding sensors.
3) Replacing monitor with a new monitor.
Sensor Installation Order
Installation Precautions
Speed (Ground)
1) During installation the monitor has a predetermined
order in which it wants the sensors attached. The
installer must be sure that the proper sensor is
plugged in the proper sequence.
Fan
Shaft 1
Shaft 2
i.e. If during installation the installer plugs in the
Front Shaft and Ground Speed sensors in the
wrong order, the monitor would not know this.
The monitor would interpret Front Shaft rpm from
the Ground Speed shaft and vice versa.
Shaft 3
Tank 1
Tank 2
2) There may be occasions when the operator will not
have use of all the sensors.
i) During sensor installation when the monitor
prompts for an unused sensor to be plugged in,
the operator can press the SELECT key to skip
over the sensor. The sensor will be assigned
a disabled status. A sensor disabled by this
method can only be enabled by repeating the
installation procedure.
Tank 3
VarCon (Variable Rate)
(Unit calls for installation only if var controller is installed)
Optical Blockage Modules
ii) During operation the operator can disable shaft
sensors by setting the pulses per revolution to
zero. When pulses are set to zero alarms for
that sensor and corresponding Bin Level sensor
are ignored and no monitoring occurs.
3) Blockage modules attached to the harness are
handled differently than the sensors attached to
the harness. See Assembly Section “Blockage
Module”.
Pin Sensors - the blockage module does not have
to be removed from the harness during initial
system installation.
Optical Sensors - the blockage modules have to
be unplugged from the harness before sensor
installation can be performed and are connected
like the other sensors requested by the monitor
during sensor installation.

Identifying Variable Rate Console Switches
The variable rate console provides the means to:
• Turn on or off each/all metering shaft(s).
• Increase or decrease the application rate of any
given shaft.
Master On/Off
Activates the shaft On/Off buttons. If any of the seed
or fertilizer buttons are in an “On” state during a Master
On, the variable rate controller will initiate any required
motor rotation of the respective shaft at the currently
selected application rate. Master Off will deactivate
all the shaft On/Off buttons and stop all motor rotation.
A LED indicates whether the button is on or off.
Shaft 1 On/Off
Used to turn shaft 1 on and off. A LED indicates the
current state of the button.
Shaft 2 On/Off
Used to turn shaft 2 on and off. A LED indicates the
current state of the button.
VR Console
Shaft 3 On/Off
Used to turn shaft 3 on and off. A LED indicates the
current state of the button.
Boost
Each push of the Boost button increases the application
rate by 5% of the nominal rate to a maximum of 50%.
The respective LED will flash quickly indicating the
application rate is higher than the nominal rate. To return
the application rate to nominal, the respective shaft On/
Off button is pressed once. The LED will stop flashing
and will stay on.
Note: The application rate can be increased or
decreased up to 50%.
Cut
Each push of the Cut button decreases the application
rate by 5% of the nominal rate to a minimum of 50%.
The respective LED will flash slowly indicating the
application rate is lower than the nominal rate. To return
the application rate to nominal, the respective shaft
On/Off button is pressed once. The LED will stop
flashing and will stay on.

•
Manual override of the variable rate control system.
Note: The Controller Switch must be turned on
before the monitor.
Controller On/Off
Activates the variable rate control system by
supplying power to valve body.
Override Bypass
Used if a fault occurs in the electrical wiring of
connections to the variable rate control system. The
manual override system provides the ability to run
the hydraulic motors at a fixed rate (not proportional
to ground speed) and to turn the manual system on
and off from the tractor cab. This switch is normally
left in OFF position.

Sensor Installation
The installation procedure is required to configure the
monitor to the sensors attached to it.
The operator may have to redo the installation if:
1) An extra tank is added to the Air Cart.
Note: Each monitor is unique to the sensors installed.
If monitor is moved to another Air Cart it has
to be reprogrammed to match the sensors.
2) Replacing or adding sensors.
3) Replacing monitor with a new monitor.
Sensor Installation Order
Installation Precautions
Speed (Ground)
1) During installation the monitor has a predetermined
order in which it wants the sensors attached. The
installer must be sure that the proper sensor is
plugged in the proper sequence.
Fan
Shaft 1
Shaft 2
i.e. If during installation the installer plugs in the
Front Shaft and Ground Speed sensors in the
wrong order, the monitor would not know this.
The monitor would interpret Front Shaft rpm from
the Ground Speed shaft and vice versa.
Shaft 3
Tank 1
Tank 2
2) There may be occasions when the operator will not
have use of all the sensors.
i) During sensor installation when the monitor
prompts for an unused sensor to be plugged in,
the operator can press the SELECT key to skip
over the sensor. The sensor will be assigned
a disabled status. A sensor disabled by this
method can only be enabled by repeating the
installation procedure.
Tank 3
VarCon (Variable Rate)
(Unit calls for installation only if var controller is installed)
Optical Blockage Modules
ii) During operation the operator can disable shaft
sensors by setting the pulses per revolution to
zero. When pulses are set to zero alarms for
that sensor and corresponding Bin Level sensor
are ignored and no monitoring occurs.
3) Blockage modules attached to the harness are
handled differently than the sensors attached to
the harness. See Assembly Section “Blockage
Module”.
Pin Sensors - the blockage module does not have
to be removed from the harness during initial
system installation.
Optical Sensors - the blockage modules have to
be unplugged from the harness before sensor
installation can be performed and are connected
like the other sensors requested by the monitor
during sensor installation.

Alarms
Alarms
Introduction
All configured sensors and various other operating
conditions are continuously monitored. Alarms fall
into one of the following three categories:
•
Sensor alarms are alarms which are generated
when information returned by a sensor exceeds the
appropriate threshold.
•
Communication alarms occur when a sensor
repeatedly does not respond to attempts at
communication.
•
System alarms are for various other conditions
that are found to be in fault.
When an alarm condition occurs the monitor will beep
repeatedly and an alarm screen will pop up indicating
the fault condition.
Alarm Screen
The audio alarm and alarm screen persist until the
alarm condition is fixed or until it is acknowledged by
the operator. Follow the steps on the screen to fix or
acknowledge the alarm.
After acknowledgement, the “Operating Screen” will
be displayed with any unfixed alarms shown in the
“active alarm window”. If there are more than one
acknowledged alarms, they will cycle on the display.
When the alarm condition is corrected, the alarm
notification is removed and ground speed will again
be displayed in bottom window.
Nuisance Shaft Alarm
Low application rates of Canola may cause the seed
shaft to rotate less than 2 rpm.
Alarm - Operating Screen
The low shaft rpm will cause the monitor to give a shaft
alarm, since the shaft is rotating below the defalt alarm
threshold of 2 rpm.
To avoid this nuisance alarm change the seed shaft low
rpm alarm setting to 0.5 rpm.
Note: Change the setting back to 2 rpm when
returning to higher application rates.
4-2
Note: To “TURN OFF” any shaft not in use set
pulses to 0. This will eliminate any nuisance
alarms caused by an inactive shaft. Also
the corresponding bin should be “Disabled”
to eliminate any nuisance alarms caused by
an empty bin.
August 2011
Monitor - Version 3
Alarms
Alarms - Continued
“In Motion” Notification
The “In Motion” condition means that the monitor,
based on ground speed and clutch state, considers
that the system is supposed to be actively seeding.
1
The monitor emits a double beep whenever the “In
Motion” condition becomes true or false. This condition
is defined as speed greater than 2 mph (3.2 Kph) and
drive clutch engaged.
1. If ground speed is less than 2 mph (3.2 Kph) for
more than 30 seconds the monitor will alarm and
display “Should be Seeding”.
2. If ground speed is greater than 2 mph (3.2 Kph) for
more than 30 seconds and clutch is not engaged
the monitor will alarm and display “Clutch Switch
is Off”.
2
Low Fan Alarms
Low fan alarms are handled differently because a
stopped fan can result in damage to the metering
mechanics as unblown material accumulates. Low
fan alarms can not be acknowledged while the
system is “in motion”. Thus, if a low fan alarm
occurs during active seeding, the user will not be able
to silence the alarm with the soft key, but will need to
stop the vehicle or disengage the clutch. When this
happens, the monitor accepts it as an
acknowledgement of the alarm, and an effective
“automatic acknowledge” takes place, resulting in the
beeper being silenced and the resumption of normal
display with “Fan Low RPM” flashing in the alarm
window.

Optical Blockage Run Bad Alarms
If any monitored run does not pass the self-test mode
on monitor power-up, the blockage module will report
that run is bad. The optical sensor or wiring may be
faulty or too much light may be getting into the tube.
Blockage Alarms
During seeding, if the blockage monitor senses a low
seed count or does not see any seeds from a run
sensor, an alarm will be displayed to show which runs
are blocked.
The alarms can be silenced with the OK soft key.

Module Installation
When blockage sensing systems are used, modules
must be installed in the system, runs per module set,
and calibration done while seeding.
Note: When optical modules are added, they must
be learned by the monitor. See the “Sensor
Installation”.
When pin sensors are added, the number
of sensors is set in each module on the
seeding unit and the number of blockage
modules is set in the monitor.
Runs per Module Setup
The number of runs connected per blockage module
must be set in order for the system to operate correctly.
This should only need to be done when the blockage
modules are first installed, and afterwards only if the
number of sensors is changed.
Optical Sensors the number of runs connected is set
in the monitor. Refer to “Monitor Settings”.
Pin Sensors the number of runs connected is set on
each individual blockage module on the seeding unit.
Refer to “Pin Sensor Installation” Section 10.
Individual Runs Setup

Trouble Shooting Guide
Most electronic problems are usually one of the
following:
• Harness connections.
• Damaged harness wires.
• Loose terminal in harness plug.
• Sensor to Actuator clearance.
• Defective sensor.
The monitor will alert the operator of these problems
as a communication error.
Checking Harness
First, check for the obvious things like broken
connections, loose terminals, insulation rubbed off and
so forth.
• Check continuity of wires with ohm meter.
Checking Sensors
The best approach to testing a sensor is to substitute
a suspected sensor with a known good one. If the
problem goes away, the sensor is faulty. If it does not
go away, it is faulty wiring.
Bin Level Sensors ensure there is no foreign material
covering the optical sensor. Remove material with a
cloth as not to damage lens.
Make sure sensor wires are not damaged.
Checking Blockage System
Check modules by performing a blockage module test
on the monitor.
Optical sensors make sure the “optical eyes” are not
coated with material or worn down. Remove material
with a cloth as not to damage lens.
Pin sensors make sure there is no buildup of material
on the pins. Remove material buildup with a knife and
gently scraping away the material buildup.
Make sure sensor wires are not damaged.
