General

The CropScan 3000H 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 3000H 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 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 3000H On Combine Analyser has been installed on John Deere, Case, New Holland, Claas, Massey Ferguson and Gleaner combines around the world.

After a few years trialing the 3000H we have now got a reliable and accurate system that is easy to install and run. The software has come a long way and is now intuitive and very user friendly. The applications are numerous depending on your focus. I have also found that once calibrated it is within .1-.2 of the silo reading.

G'Dat Matt, Sorry for the late reply of your e mail, been busy killing these blasted summer weeds. Firstly I would like to say that the 3000h has been a huge benefit to our business. We know that we cannot produce huge yields so the quality of our product has to be sorted. As you know we have standing silos with one auger and to segregate the product in the paddock before it reaches the silos helps us no end. The mechanics of the machine are very simple with gravity doing most of the work. Being fitted on the clean grain elevator the machine opens a trap door on the delivery side ( up side ) then after the sample has been taken a trap door opens and lets it go on the down side. The installation process for me was quite easy, with Matt doing all the work. The process of the machine going into the header was very clean and neat and the appearance of the machine looks like it is meant to be on the header. We send our grain to a flour mill 350 kms from our farm and the accuracy of the 3000h is within 0.2 percent protein of their machine. Their machine has the final say so it is good to know that when we send a truck down it does not get rejected. The software support that comes with the 3000h is second to none, with any problems experienced being quickly fixed. The graphics on the screen are simple and coherent to be watching while harvesting. Also if any problems occur with the machine itself Matt is happy to be of assistance.

The CropScan 3000H was really useful for the 2013 harvest. It allowed us to segregate F1 barley and malt barley. The real time paddock map allowed us to see what areas of the paddock were going malt barley. We found the system to be a useful tool that was easy to use and aligned well against the receival silo.

I'm particularly impressed with the way the sample device worked faultlessly for the entire time requiring no maintenance at all after almost 5 weeks of continuous operation and also pleased with the ease of dealing with any software issues online remotely mostly without me stopping harvesting". You mentioned I think that you were planning on a Utube video to promote the product, I have had a little video made of the machine working done from a drone. You may like to use a couple of seconds of it at the opening or closing of whatever you put together? Just a different view to what is normally seen of a harvester that's all. The 2013 harvester will be going to town early next week and they will be able to do the swap any time after that.
