New grain loading app
By Top Crop Manager
Jan. 20, 2014 — Leading Edge Industries has introduced its new Load Judge for efficiently loading grain trailers. This unique system includes six proximity sensors and one moisture sensor, which are easily installed in a hopper bottom trailer. The sensors send a wireless signal to the truck cab, where the operator can view a graphical illustration of the grain loading, as well as bushel and weight estimators, on a smartphone or iPad.
Data is adjustable based on different trailer makes and models, and the app displays specific commodity configuration graphics for the exact trailer being loaded. The trailer sensors self-calibrate every second to continuously deliver data in real time. A bushel estimator provides accurate bushel quantities throughout the loading process, while a pile peak adjustment feature accounts for differences in piling wet or dry commodities to allow the user to customize accordingly. Desired load levels can be set and saved for every condition, making the process repeatable for every load.
The product is available in Canada. For more information, contact Leading Edge Industries at 605-881-8062 or visit www.loadjudge.com.
