Connect Mobile harvest makes ICA easier than ever to operate and monitor. ICA can assist operators in improving the overall daily and seasonal productivity of the combine. This feature is designed to resolve issues operators face during changing crop or harvest conditions and improve combine efficiency.
NOTE: ICA is available only on Final Tier 4 (FT4) model year 2014 through 2017 S-Series Combines.
The combine operator is able to select a harvest outcomes priority order based upon four choices:
- Grain loss
- Broken grain
- Grain cleanliness
- Straw quality
Adjust settings in the user-flow wizard
Identify issues in the user-flow wizard
A user-flow wizard makes it easy to identify issues and adjust settings to optimize harvesting performance. The operator can select from nine different conditions on the iPad® tablet screen to optimize combine adjustments based on field conditions.
ICA recommends adjustments based on the priorities, current combine settings, and the issues reported by the operator.
When a recommendation is selected, ICA automatically makes the adjustment. Some recommendations — like ground speed— also offer a manual adjustment option. The result is improved machine performance and grain quality.
Recommendations and machine indicators
Connect Mobile harvest also has a run time monitor with key indicators. These include rotor speed, fan speed, threshing clearance, chaffer opening, sieve opening, average moisture, average wet yield, and average dry yield during harvest.
They are displayed on the iPad for easy monitoring. When a combine adjustment is made, the operator can see the machine indicators that are affected as they change in real-time.
