Firm updates software
Intelligent Agricultural Solutions (lAS) has announced several software updates and improvements to its Wireless Blockage Monitor system.
The Wireless Blockage Monitor system is an acoustic-based seed monitoring system for air seeding implements. Launched in 2011, the system monitors every opener on the implement and uses the popular Apple Pad to instantly display blockages anywhere on the tool. The system has been well received by forward-looking farmers and is now in use across the United States, Canada and Australia.
The most compelling improvement is the system’s new flow monitoring feature, which displays total flow levels and flow variance from manifold to manifold. The feature delivers a more complete view of how the implement is performing and will arm farmers with the data they need to more effectively tune and balance their equipment for maximum performance and efficiency. lAS has also designed and implemented new low flow rate algorithms for improved system performance in applications such as planting sunflowers, canola and flax. These algorithms make the Wireless Blockage Monitor even more versatile for farmers planting a wide range of crops.
Additionally, lAS has improved support for customers running multiple systems in the same field. The new functionality was released as an update to the Wireless Blockage Monitor application on the Apple App Store at the beginning of April.
