Opto-sensor / optical sensor

Seed-precise detection of seed during the seeding procedure

The sensor consists of a sending and a receiving unit.

The sender produces a light beam in the near-infrared wavelength range. The receiver, which exhibits its maximum sensitivity in this wavelength range, is spatially positioned at a distance opposite to the sender. If this light beam is interrupted by seed grain, it produces an output signal of the sensor.

Product advantages:

  • Sensor can be adapted for specific seeding units
  • High counting accuracy even under difficult field conditions
