Scale Indicator Added to Digi-Star Harvest Tracker System

Digi-Star’s Harvest Tracker System has added a number of new features including the GT 560 Scale Indicator. In addition to tracking harvest scale data via a phone or tablet, farmers will also be able to automatically record location and grain moisture content with the new indicator. 

The GT 560 Scale Indicator is designed to work with grain carts, gravity boxes, and forage boxes. “It can even be fitted to bale transport wagons or trailers,” says Chris Horton, Digi-Star product planning manager.

Although the GT 560 scale indicator replaces the GT 460, it will keep all of its functions and features including automatic recording of unloaded weight data, operator warnings to aid in preventing overloaded trucks, and Harvest Tracker PC and on-line software to manage the harvest data recorded by the GT 560.

Location and moisture recording are options for the GT 560. Location is provided by a standard GPS device making it easy to switch tractors. Grain moisture is provided by a proven, reliable, accurate, temperature-compensated sensor that measures grain moisture as the grain cart is emptied.

Harvest Tracker software not only manages the data but also provides simple mapping information to show where loading and unloading took place. 

“There are numerous new features in this system such as increased microprocessor power, an hour meter, a maintenance message reminder, field location recording of loading and unloading points, and grain moisture recording with dry-bushel calculation,” says Horton.
