To determine which type of load cell you have, look at the "Capacity"
value on the sticker on the load cell.
Load Cell A & B Offset: If you do not have a tilt sensor set this to 0. If
you have a tilt sensor do the following.
a. Place the conveyor in a vertical position with the load cells
pointing down and the weight of the chain off the idler wheel
of load cell.
b. Go to the HarvestMaster Sensor Diagnostic screen. (Press the
EXIT key and the MENU key. Press the DIAG key and
HARVMAST SENSOR key.)
c. Write down the “gross” weight for Weight A and Weight B.
Go back to the Harvmast Sensor Setup Screen and enter gross
Weight A for Load Cell A Offset and gross Weight B for Load
Cell B Offset.
Tilt Sensor Multiplier: This is the degrees of tilt per volt. If you do not
have a tilt sensor set this to 0. If you do have a tilt sensor, obtain this
setting from the label on the tilt sensor. To check if the value is correct do
the following:
a. Place the portion of the conveyor with the load cells level. Use an
angle finder to make sure it is perfectly level.
b. Go to the HarvestMaster Sensor Diagnostic screen and view "Tilt".
c. Adjust the position of the tilt sensor until the “Tilt” reading is set to 0.
d. Using the angle finder, change the conveyor to a known angle (such
as 30 degrees).
e. Check the “Tilt” reading under the HarvestMaster Sensor Diagnostic
screen. If it does not match the known angle, divide the known angle
by the sensor reading. Multiply the result by the current Tilt Sensor
Multiplier. This is the final setting. Enter this value at the
HarvestMaster Sensor Setup Screen.

Example:
Known Angle: 30 degrees
Tilt sensor reading: 33 degrees
Current Tilt Sensor Multiplier: 67 degrees
30
= 0.909
33
0.909 x 67 = 61
Final Tilt Sensor Multiplier Setting is 61.
Tilt Sensor Offset: This should be set to 0 if you do not have a tilt sensor.
If using a tilt sensor, and it cannot be adjusted to read “0” when the
conveyor is horizontal, set Tilt Sensor Offset according to the following:
a. With tilt sensor adjusted to its final adjustment and with conveyor
perfectly level, view "Tilt" reading under the HarvestMaster Sensor
Diagnostic Screen.
b. Enter the "Tilt" reading as the setting for "Tilt Sensor Offset", but
enter the opposite sign of the “Tilt” value. Example: If “Tilt” value is
2, enter –2 for “Tilt Sensor Offset”. If “Tilt” value is –2, enter 2 for
“Tilt Sensor Offset”.
Flow Cutoff: This is the minimum flow rate for recording data. Initially,
this is usually set to zero.
Profile Height Multiplier: Set to - 3.34 inches. If using metric units set
to - 8.48 cm.
Profile Threshold: Set to 0 inches. If using metric units set to 0 cm.
Number of Profile Sensors: Set to 5.

Yield Multiplier: If you have been using the HarvestMaster Mobile
Field Computer and are satisfied with the accuracy do not change this
setting. If you have not used the Mobile Field Computer or are not
satisfied with your accuracy set to:
1.00 if using Load Cell sensors
3.00 if using Profile sensors (only used for Grapes)
If you change this setting you will have to calibrate for weight. See
“Weight Calibration Screen” instructions in the Calibration Section of this
instruction set.
IMPORTANT: After you set the Yield Multiplier value, DO
NOT CHANGE it. Changing this value after setup will
adversely impact harvest accuracy.
Setup – Step 3
HarvMast Vehicle
Setup Screen
To view this screen press the SETUP key and HARVMAST VEHICLE key.
Area Count Switch Source: Selections are Belt Speed or Hold/Run. Set
this to "Belt Speed" for area counting to be based on when the Belt is
stopped or moving. (Stopped = Area Off, Moving = Area On). Set this to
"Hold/Run" for area counting to be based on the Hold/Run switch. (Hold
= Area Off, Run = Area On).
Note: The Ag Leader Area Count switch (located on bottom right of front
panel) must be on in order to count area.
Belt Length: Measure the conveyor belt length, enter this length for this
setting. If using Imperial units enter feet, if using Metric units enter
meters.
Belt Distance Per Pulse: This is the pulses per foot (or meters) of belt
travel detected by the speed sensor. The sensor is located on the drive
shaft.
Belt Distance Per Pulse = Sprocket Diameter (feet or meters) x 3.14.
Note: This formula assumes that the sensor outputs one pules per
revolution of sprocket. Pulse is generated by magnet passing the
speed sensor.
Measure sprocket diameter from low points where chain rests not from
the tips or ends of the sprocket cogs.

Travel Distance Per Pulse: Measure the diameter of the wheel that has
the ground speed sensor installed. Use the following formula to
determine the setting:
Tire Diameter (feet or meters) x 3.14
Travel Distance Per Pulse =
Number of magnets
Tank Type: If you are not using a sugar beet harvester ignore this setting.
If you are using a sugar beet harvester, refer to the HarvestMaster
instructions for the proper setting.
Discharge Delay: If you are not using a sugar beet harvester ignore this
setting. If you are using a sugar beet harvester, this setting is the time in
seconds from when the beets come out of the tank until they pass the
weighing rollers again, on their way to the truck. Typically this setting is
8 – 11 seconds.
Discharge Rate: If you are not using a sugar beet harvester ignore this
setting. If you are using a sugar beet harvester, this is the rate in lbs/sec
(or kgs/sec if metric) at which the beets come out of the holding tank.
Determine this setting by timing how much material comes out. Typical
settings are 50 –100 lbs/sec (23 – 45 kgs/sec).
