MONITORING SYSTEMS

All Gason air seeders come equipped, as standard, with a complete in-cab monitoring system to ensure the driver is kept up to date with the seeder operating status. Owners have a number of monitor makes and models to choose from, catering for owners who have a preferred system or to complement existing equipment already on farm. Ground drive monitors will display metershaft speeds, fan speed, air pressure as well as area sown and seeder ground speed.

The hydraulic drive VRT seeder range can be fully controlled from the selected monitor at the tractor cab once the various materials have been calibrated. It can be as simple as pushing a button or touching the screen, depending on model, to turn individual bins off or on as well as change actual application rates while on the move. Most VRT monitor’s offered will also accept prepared variable rate prescription maps to allow automatic variations of seed and fertilizer.

Farmscan 7500 (standard VRT monitor supplied)

The Farmscan 7500 monitor and control unipod is the standard monitor of choice for the Gason VRT Seeder Range. It’s high quality, bright color touch screen with variable display layouts offers operators the flexibility in how they view their information. In one sentence, compact in size but with a host of features. As well as the 7500 monitor, customers receive a Farmscan Ag 1020 Head Blockage Monitor with one head blockage sensor at no extra cost. Further head sensors can be purchased at anytime. The 7500 is capable of accepting variable rate application maps and uses a USB port as a means of loading and transferring data.

Trimble Field IQ (monitor not supplied)

The Trimble FmX / FM-1000 monitor is a fully integrated, full featured guidance display that allows the operator to control both automated steering functions and seeder control. Designed and developed in the USA, the Trimble monitor is used by a number of tractor manufactures as a high end auto steer option. If ordered, Gason’s will supply a Trimble Ready seeder, fully tested & ready for connection to the back of the tractor. We cannot however supply the actual monitor or looms that are fitted to the tractor. It will be the responsibility of the dealer to work with their local Trimble supplier to complete the connection process. Gason’s are a ‘Trimble Ready’ accredited OEM.

John Deere ‘Dry Rate Controller’ Ready (monitor not supplied)

For those customers with a GS3 2630 display on their John Deere tractor, the JD ‘Dry Rate Controller’ Ready option may be the best way to achieve less clutter in the cab and to combine all tractor and sowing functions into the one package. If ordered, Gason will fit & test the JD dealer supplied John Deere components to the seeder to ensure flawless operation before the seeder leaves the factory. John Deere owners will be able to maximise efficiency by using the existing tractor display and functions such as documentation which when combined with JD Apex Farm Management Software, can enable variable rate application.
