Monitor Control and Its Application to the Grain Harvesting Machine 710702
Monitoring is applied to the combine in two ways: engine and process functions. Engine functions are monitored by two modes of warning: audible for the critical and visual for the other important functions.
Process functions are the critical harvesting speeds or volume flow. The operator is instantaneously warned by a function light and a warning wand if any of his monitored functions drop below the critical harvesting speeds.
