AUTOMATIC monitoring of farming equipment functions continues to come along in leaps and bounds and it’s not about to stop in 2017.
The Jackal multifunction monitor has been monitoring multiple functions simultaneously for growers for years, however its latest incarnation is now offering a control level for operators.
The Jackal adapts onto almost any machine and has been used as a speed and area meter, flow meter, batch meter, depth meter and to monitor rates, pressures, temperatures and RPM to name a few.
In an airseeder application, it has been able to monitor and display shafts, bin levels, air pressures and seeding depth for growers.
Farmscan Ag OEM Manager Clark Croucher said there could be 4000 and 7000 Jackal units in use across the country and he expects this to increase upon the launch of the latest generation Jackal.
He said there was continued strong demand for the Jackal just as an area meter and a basic level.
