Hy Rate™ Plus LED Seed Sensor

Obtain High Accuracy on Multiple Seed Types

The Hy Rate Plus™ LED Seed Sensor is the sensor of choice for all seed types regardless of size, shape and seeding rate. From larger seeds such as corn to small seeds like canola, the Hy Rate Plus accurately counts seeding population during planting, providing confidence that your row units are working properly and seeds are being placed for optimum yield potential.

  • Accurately monitors seeding rates between 1–135 seeds/sec across multiple seed types for uncompromised accuracy
  • Ability to distinguish doubles, triples and quad seed drops to maintain accurate population count
  • Compensates for the effect of wind and dust allowing you to plant on windy days
  • Utilizes a uniform light field with virtually zero dead zones in the seed tube, eliminating false skips
  • Field programmable for software improvements and upgrades
  • Informs operator when adjustments are required to maintain optimum planter performance with per-row data (% Singulation, % Multiples, % Skips, Spacing Quality) when utilizing the IntelliAg Working Set Member 2 (WSMB2) seed singulation module
  • Uses a 3-Pin Weather Pak connector for direct connection to existing planter row harnessing
  • Compatible with existing DICKEY-john PM series planter monitors, IntelliAg® AI series controllers and the IntelliAg® MVT
  • Compatible with most OEM planter monitors in use with older DICKEY-john seed sensors
