Straw Monitor
"You can prevent combine damage and reduce costly downtime with our new Straw Flow Monitor," says Jim Fisher, operations manager for Eltek Corp., Hagerstown, Ind.
The company's new light-activated sensor monitors the flow of straw, stalks or other crop debris through the straw walker and rear area of the combine.
It consists of a light source and a light sensor mounted inside the combine 1 ft. above and behind the end of the straw walker. When debris begins to build up between the light and the sensor, a warning buzzer in the cab alerts the operator in time to prevent damage to the machine.
Retail price is $128, complete with enough wiring to fit the largest combines with either positive or negative ground.
