Case IH 3000H Grain Analyser
Case IH 3000H On Combine Whole Grain Analyser
Improving productivity and profits with real time protein and oil percentage monitoring
New on the market: the 3000H
Case IH has released a new on-combine 3000H Grain Analyser that allows farmers and contractors to monitor grain protein in cereals and oil percentage in oilseeds in real time while harvesting, using technology previously only available to grain buyers and handlers.
The 3000H is a powerful near infrared spectrometer capable of measuring protein, oil and moisture in cereal grains and oil seeds. The system consists of a NIR Spectrometer and a Touch Screen PC which sit in the cabin, a Remote Sampling Head and Fiber Optic Cable. 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 Cloud where it can be monitored using a PC, tablet or smart phone.
The Grain Analyser will play an integral part in analysing your crop while you harvest. You are able to see the quality of your crop and determine their Grain Grade. From the cab you can decide whether it’s more profitable to mix or keep your quality grain separate.
“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.” Ashley Wakefield
“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.” Adam Inchbold
