The CropScan 3300H is a powerful Near Infrared Transmission spectrometer capable of measuring protein, oil and moisture in cereal grains and oil seeds as they are stripped in a combine harvester. The CropScan 3300H measure grains as they are sampled off the clean grain elevator. Grain drops into the Remote Sampling Head where it trapped for a few seconds while light is passed through the sample. A fiber optic cable collects the transmitted light and send it to the NIR spectrometer located inside the cabin. A Touch Screen tablet PC, which is mounted inside the cabin, controls the system and displays the protein, oil and moisture data in real time. Data is collected every 7-12 seconds which is displayed on the Touch Screen PC showing bin averages, field averages and real-time protein maps. The software sends the data to the internet where it can be monitored using a PC, Tablet or Smart phone.
The CropScan 3300H On Combine Analyser has been installed on John Deere, Case, New Holland, Claas, Massey Ferguson and Gleaner combines around the world.
CropNet Mapping is a new service which aims to provide the solution to help farmers organise their Digital Farm data and present the data in a simple, easy to use format and in a timely manner. CropNet Mapping will collate and process the Yield and Protein data from the CropScan 3300H On Combine Analyser and return the data to the farmer as a series of usable maps. This ensures farmers and their agronomists have the important data before the big decisions need to be made.
