S198P Population Monitor
User Manual
Introduction
Congratulations and thank you on your purchase of a Sensor-1
Series S198P population monitor. It was designed to take the
guesswork out of your planting operation. The console will
monitor each row for seed flow and seed population density
(seeds per acre)(seeds per Hectares). When any row stops
planting or the seed population drops below or above the pre
set values or control limits, the console will sound an audio
alarm and visually indicate the failed row with a flashing light.
This monitor also provides the user with information on Population, Acreage (Hectares) planted, and Ground Speed. Sensor-1 population monitor consists of the following: a planter
monitor console, a console cable that connects the monitor to
the planter harness, tractor’s battery, and radar leads. Sensors
and ground speed can be purchased separately.
The monitor cable connects to a planter or drill harness and
the harness connects to the seed sensors, battery and ground
speed units. The population monitor needs a distance sensor;
this is strongly recommended but not required. A distance sensor consists of radar, universal distance sensor, press wheel, or
manual speed settings.
The seed sensor should be a population device that is installed
in each planter or drill runner normally at the lower end of the
seed delivery tube. These sensors are located close to the
lower end of the planter runners to quickly detect seed flow
stoppage to the ground. The series S198P monitor population
or seed flow can be used on planters or drills, monitoring 1, or
up to 16 rows. Since each Planter or Drill runner differs with
each planter model, seed sensors are designed to fit specific
planter types. This provides optimum seed sensing for each
planter model.

Installation
Console: The console should be mounted within easy view
and access of the operator, and should not obstruct the operator’s normal vision. The console can be mounted on the hood
or fender of tractors without cabs, or inside the cab on a cab
frame member. The mounting bracket can be installed upright
or upside down to suspend the monitor from the roof of the cab.
It can be secured with two bolts for a fixed horizontal angle or
with one bolt in the center for a variable horizontal angle.
Console Battery Lead: Sensor-1 monitors operate on 12Volts DC only. The console’s battery lead has two wires. Each
wire has a ring terminal. The red wire must be connected to the
POSITIVE side of the tractor’s battery regardless of whether
the tractor is positive or negative ground. The black wire must
be connected to the NEGATIVE side of the battery. If the tractor uses two 12-Volts batteries connected in series, connect
the console’s battery leads across the battery connected to the
tractor’s chassis. Do not connect the console across both batteries (2 multiply 12-Volts = 24V).
If the tractor uses two 6V batteries make sure they are connected in series. If the positive battery terminal on one battery
is connected to the negative terminal on the other battery the
batteries are connected in series. If the positive battery terminal
on one battery is connected to the positive battery terminal of
the other battery, batteries are connected together in parallel; you have a six-volt system and the console will not work. If
the two six volt batteries are connected in series, connect the
console power leads across both batteries. Make sure the black
wire is connected to the NEGATIVE on one battery and the
POSITIVE terminal of the other battery. If the two six volt batteries are connected in parallel, connecting the red wire to the
positive side and the black wire to the negative side, it will not
damage the console but the voltage will be to low to power the
console. You would need a separate twelve-volt source to use
the console on a six-volt system. NOTE: The Battery, ignition,
Page 4
and electrical system of the tractor must be in good working
order. If your tractor battery arrangement is different than those
shown above, or if there is any questions as to where to connect the battery cable, use a voltmeter to make sure you have
from 11-volts to 14-volts across the Red and Black leads. On
tractors using two 12-volt batteries, make sure console battery
leads are connected directly to the grounded battery.
Console Cable Signal Cable: The signal cable from the
console is terminated with a 37-pin connector at the planter
end. Route this cable to the rear of the tractor near the hitch.
Route the cable where it will not get pinched, cut, stepped on,
or damaged in anyway. Also, choose a route away from the
tractor’s alternator and spark plugs. Make sure the planter can
be unhitched without removing any tie wraps. Once the route is
chosen, lay the cable in place and tie it down with plastic wire
ties. The Sensor-1 monitor console cable signal cable is set up
for a Dickey-john, Case-IH, and a Sensor-1 harness configuration. Power is on #24 (rows 1-8) & #25 (rows 9-16) Ground is
on #26 (rows 1-8) & # 27 (rows 9-16). For John Deere monitors harness power is on #27 and ground is on #28. Make sure
what type of harness configuration you have.
Planter or Drill Harnesses: Planter or Drill harness installation
is not difficult, however you must use care to locate the harness
where it will not get pinched, cut, stepped on, or damaged by
moving parts during operation or transporting of your planter or
drill. Start by connecting the tongue of the harness cable to the
Console’s Signal Cable. Tie the tongue of the harness cable to
the planter’s hitch. Be sure to leave enough slack to allow turning without stretching or breaking the cables. Tie the other end
of the tongue cable to the other end of the hitch boom at the
point it connects to the planter’s tool bar. Tie down the rest of
the tongue cable to the hitch boom, coil up any excess and tie
it down to prevent damage during operation. Fan the harness
cable along the planter’s tool bar so that row one is on the far
left, when facing the direction of forward travel. Make sure the
cables are in order across the tool bar. Check to make sure the
Page 5
cables will not be damaged during operation. Tie all the cables
down with plastic wire ties.
Sensor Installation: The sensors are mounted on each planter
shank near the bottom of the seed delivery tubes. Route each
sensor cable to the harness and tie it down to prevent damage
to the sensor cable during operation.
Setup Calculations: There are five constants that must be
entered for setup. The first is number of sensors, second is
number of rows, third is the row spacing, fourth is the speed
constant, and fifth is high population. These constants are used
to determine the population, acreage (Hectares) planted and
ground speed. They must be entered the first time you start
up the monitor, when memory is lost, or if you change your
configuration. The accuracy of the area computations, population, seed and ground speed readouts are dependent upon the
accuracy of the values entered. Acreage (Hectares) will not
function unless you are planting.
The number of sensors: Installed on the planter or drill.
The number of rows: Drops on your planter or drill.
The Row Spacing: Is the width of one row spacing in
inches (centimeter) and is equal to the distance between
any seed line and the seed line next over.
The Speed Constant: Matches the console to the distance
sensor. The speed constant is equal to the number of clicks
or distance pulses in 200 feet (50 meters). The speed
constant can be calculated by the operator or measured by
the monitor. There are three types of distance sensors that
can be used with this monitor: Radar, Universal Distance
Sensor, or Press Wheel Sensors. If there’s no distance sen
sor being used, then one can put the miles per hour (kilome
ter) in as a constant 1 through 20 miles (kilometers) per
hour. When the value entered for the speed constant is
200 or less, the monitor will accept it as the speed you will
be operating at. The monitor display will change to show
MPH or KMH such as 3.2. You may set the mph to a value
of 0.1 MPH to 20.0 mph. (kph)
Page 6
Manual calculating the speed constant for radar: Use the
manual calculation only as a guide! Multiply the output frequency by 136.364 and round the value to the nearest whole
number. The calculation for the value 136.364 is (3600sec/hr
times 200feet divide 5280 feet/mile=136.364). For metric, the
calculation is (3600sec/hr times 50 meters divide 1609 meter=111.85).
Examples: The speed constant for a 44 Mega Hertz
per mph radar is 6000 (44 multiply 136.364 = 6000). The
speed constant for a 57 Hz per/mph radar is 7773 (57 multiply
136.364 = 7773). The calculation for the value 136.36.
Examples for metric: The speed constant for a 44
mega Hetz per mph radar is 4921 (44 multiply 111.38 = 4921).
The speed constant for a 57 Mega Hertz per/mph radar is
6747.66 (57 multiply 111.85 = 6747.33). The calculation for the
value 111.85
Manual calculating the speed constant for Universal Distance Sensors: Use the manual calculation only as a guide!
Measure the diameter of the tire in inches. Count the number
of magnets on the wheel. The Speed Constant for a Universal
Distance Sensor is equal to 762.69 divided by the Diameter of
the tire in inches, multiplied by the number of magnets. (200
feet times 12 inch/feet divided by pie (3.14) = 762.69).
For metric. (5000 Cemtimeters times divided by pie (3.14) =
1600) The Speed Constant for a Universal Distance Sensor is
equal to 1600 divided by the Diameter of the tire in Centimeter,
multiplied by the number of magnets.
The Speed constant for Press Wheel sensors: First you need
two pieces of information. The diameter of the wheel on which
the Press Wheel is mounted (in inches) (centimeter) and the
number of teeth or pulses per revolution of that press wheel.
The Speed Constant for a Press Wheel Sensor: Use the
manual calculation only as a guide! The Speed constant for
a Press wheel sensor is equal to 762.69 (Centimeters 1600)
divided by the Diameter of the tire in inches (centimeter), multiplied by the Number of teeth of the gear. If the Speed Constant
Page 7
is equal to zero then the monitor will count seeds instead of
population. The Speed Constant must be greater than 200.

Speed Constant must be greater 200 to use the Speed Constant or to set up the Speed Constant. Teeth must be greater
than the number of teeth shown above. The Greater the number of teeth the more the accuracy of the Population.
Helpful hint on programming speed: If your Sensor-1 monitor and your speed is 8.0 mph and your true speed is 7.0 mph
you need to increase your speed constant, to reduce the 8.0
mph to 7.0 mph. Explain, if your speed constant is 7773 and
your speed on the Sensor-1 monitor is 8.0 mph and you want
to reduce it to 7.0 mph. Increase the 7773 to 8000 and check
the speed again. Use set up 7 were lights 1,2,3 are on to make
your manual adjustments.

instructions. Measuring the speed constant: When measuring
the speed constant, try to match actual field conditions, and it
should be simulated as close as possible.
1. Measure an accurate 200 feet (50 Meters) in field course,
preferably on a level ground. Mark off the start and finish of
the course, so it will be visible from the cab as you drive by
the markers.
2. Press the SET-UP button. Press the ENTER button until
only ROW 3 light is on, the display will show the current
speed constant from memory.
3. Start planting. When passing the first marker push the UP
arrow key. The display will start counting as you move.
4. When you’re passing the finish marker press the DOWN
arrow key. The display will stop counting and display your
speed constant.
5. When the calibration procedure is completed, the constant
established, the value should be written down and retained
in the event of a memory loss. If this happens the constant
must be re-entered manually using the Setup Setup 7. The
accuracy of the 200-foot (50 Meters) calibration should be
as accurate as possible, as this will determine the population count accuracy. Record this number for future references.

Note: For High and Low Population limits it should be set to at
least +/-15% than the desired planting rate of your population
value you want. This limit is a variable decided by the user. It
should be kept in mind that setting too close to your limit would
sound the HI or LOW warning alarm more often. Drills will
Page 13
need a higher margin of error. Use +/- 20% to +/- 30% depending on the type of drill you are using. The drill will drop many
seeds at a time instead of dropping seeds constantly, as a
planter does. For a drill, the population will jump up and down
slightly because of more seed droppage, unlike the constant
droppage of a planter. The monitor will update every 200 feet
(50 Meters). If the low population is set to Zero (0), there will
be no alarm sounding for Low, Hi Population or tube blockage.
If you want the alarm to go off, you need to set the low population to at least greater than 1.0.

Page 15
a row’s population, it is still checking the other rows for seed
blockage. So if you are looking at row 1 and if row 4 stops
planting, the monitor will indicate the row 4 with a flashing light.
Row Select: Push the ROW SELECT button to stop scanning.
The monitor will display the population for the selected row until
you press another function. To advance to the next row, press
ROW SELECT again. After pressing Row Select the display will
reset to four dashes until the next update.
Acre/Speed (Hectares/Speed): Push the ACRE/SPEED button and the monitor will show the acres (Hectares) planted or
the speed. Press the key again to see the other. For easy identification the speed is prefixed with two dashes Example --4.5 is
4.5 miles per hour (Kpm). The acre (Hectares) is automatically
turned off if the planter or drill is not planting. The display will
stay on acres (Hectares) or speed until you press the SCAN or
ROW SELECT button. The display will then show four dashes
until the monitor updates.
Mode 1 & Mode 2: When the monitor is started up, it will
default to Mode 1. In Mode 1, the lights will flash every time a
seed passes through the tube sensors. In Mode 2, the lights
stay off until the row is selected or a failure is detected. You
may change from one Mode to another while planting.
Display Population, Acre (Hectares), & Speed: The monitor will display population in 1000 seeds per acre (Hectares)
(Example 23.5 is 23,500 seeds). The monitor will display Acres
(Hectares) in 0.1-Acre (Hectares) steps. The monitor will display the speed in miles per hour (kilometer per hours) to the
nearest 0.1Mph (KPH). The population is updated every 200
feet. (50meters). Acres (Hectares) and speed are updated
every 50 feet (12.5 meters). If you turn the monitor off the Acreage (Hectares) is stored as the last updated information.
Row Failure: The monitor continuously checks for seed flow,
as indicated by the flashing row indicator lights on the console.
Page 16
If any seed sensor is not detecting seeds, the alarm will sound
continuously and the row indicator light corresponding to the
planter row unit will flash. When this happens quit planting and
check to see what is wrong with the planter unit.
All Row Failure: When you lift your planter at the end of the
row and seed flow stops in all planter units, the alarm will sound
and all row indicator lights will stop flashing and remain on. After approximately 2 to 4 seconds the alarm will stop sounding.
Hardware Trouble Shooting
Troubleshooting: The general procedure to use, if a problem
occurs, is to isolate the cause to a sensor, sensor lead, planter
harness, console cable, or the console, in that order. Make necessary repairs after problem has been isolated.
Seed Sensors: The Infrared (population sensor) or seed flow
sensors are mounted in each planter shank near the bottom of
the seed delivery tubes. This location enables the sensors to
quickly detect plug-ups or absence of seed flow from the hopper. As seeds flow through the sensor, they interrupt the beam
of light between the light emitting diode (LED) and the photo
diode detector. Since planter or drill shanks differ with different
planter or drill models, sensors are designed for specific planter
models and are sometimes not interchangeable between
planters. The sensors will detect corn, soybean, cotton, beets,
sorghum, peanuts and most other seeds normally planted.
Testing Seed Sensors: When a row is failing move the sensor
to another row and if the problem follows the sensor on your
console, the sensor is the problem. Check for excessive dirt
inside the tube. In some cases, static electricity may cause dust
and seed treatment to accumulate on the sensing elements in
the sensor. Enough may accumulate to cause the sensor to
malfunction, which can cause the monitor to indicate a failure
condition. Low humidity and dry soil conditions tend to cause
this condition. When this occurs, clean the inside of the sensors
Page 17
by using a dry bottlebrush. Check for cut or damaged wires.
If the sensor leads are damaged, carefully cut away the cable
covering of the damaged area. Repair damaged wire or wires
by soldering wires together, being sure to match wire colors.
Tape each repaired wire and the cable covering. Tie down the
cable so that the same type of damage will not occur again.
To test the sensor without a Sensor Tester, get a 9-Volt Battery. Connect the battery to the sensor, red to red (+) and black
to black (-). Connect a 12-volt automotive test light between
the Green wire and the black wire. You should get 5-8 volts
between these two wires. When seeds are dropped down the
tube, if the sensor is working the green wire goes to ground as
the seed passes through the light beam. Be sure the sensor is
shaded. If the sensor is flooded with sunlight or artificial light
it will not be able to calibrate itself. If the sensor still does not
work you need to replace it or have it repaired.
Planter Harness: Examine the planter or drill harness for damage. If the harness is cut or pinched, carefully cut away the cable covering. Repair damaged wire or wires by soldering wires
together, being sure to match wire colors. Tape each repaired
wire and the cable covering. If necessary, move and secure
cable so that the same type of damage will not occur again.
Console Cable: Examine console cable for damage. If harness
is cut or pinched, carefully cut away the cable covering. Repair damaged wire or wires by soldering wires together, being
sure to match wire colors. Tape each repaired wire, and the
cable covering. If necessary, move and secure cable so that the
same type damage will not occur again.
Acres: If you go into setup and clear the acres (Hectares) back
to zero, after turning the monitor off and then back on, if the
acre (Hectares) count doesn’t restart from zero, you will need
to send the monitor back in to us for monitor repair. The problem is usually the memory chip in the unit. Before you do this,
make sure your speed is not off. The speed is updated every
fifty (50) feet. (12.5 Meter)

Operation
Planter or Drill Operation: Turn console on by the On/Off
switch. All row indicator lights are turned on, the alarm sounds
momentarily and then the console enters the operate mode .
If a row indicator light does not come on when the console is
powered up, it indicates that a problem exists with the sensor,
planter harness or a burned out row indicator light. Begin planting and observe the row indicator lights. If in Mode 1, all indicator lights should be flashing at approximately the same rate. If
one of the lights is flashing at a slower rate, check for proper
seed population. To check the population, press the row key
until the row is selected. An alarm condition occurs, when the
population density is outside of the set limits, no seeds going
down the tube, or seed blockage. The indicator light will come
on and flash with a high intensity if there is an alarm condition. If all rows are not planting, the alarms will sound for a few
seconds and all of the light indicators will remain flashing until
normal planting occurs. Pressing the ENTER key can clear the
buzzer. The buzzer will remain off until a new alarm condition is
detected.
