R-CONNECT MONITOR offers intelligent and fully automatic image documentation during the sugar beet harvest. Photos tagged with the location are automatically taken during lifting and while emptying the bunker. The Tiger 6S is fitted with several digital cameras for this purpose. The pictures taken by the optional camera on the cabin roof for monitoring the state of the crop before harvest and the pictures of the camera on the unloading conveyor for checking the quality of the harvest during unloading are allocated to the lifting order in the R-Connect portal.
TIGER 6S with networked digital cameras
The ROPA Tiger 6S is the first machine to have digital cameras instead of analogue cameras.
The Tiger 6S has several digital cameras. The images from the camera on the cabin roof for monitoring the state of the crop before harvest and the images of the camera on the unloading conveyor for quality control of the lifting result during the emptying of the bunker are allocated to the order and are available in the R-Connect portal.
Access at any time anywhere. On the machine, in the office, at home or while travelling - the user can access the harvesting results with images from the machine anywhere with the R-Connect portal.
R-Connect monitor for image documentation
The harvested area, the yield (number of bunker fillings) and the position of the beet clamp can all be recorded. This Agritechnica innovation can now save a visual record of the beet area before the harvest and also the result of the harvest.
- Images tagged with location record.
- Documentation of the machine settings with the image.
- Photos tagged with the location are automatically taken during lifting and while emptying the bunker and allocated to the harvest order in the R-Connect portal.
Innovations and new items at Agritechnica 2019
- Images showing the state of the beet crop before harvest in connection with the machine settings and position data
- Monitoring for weed abundance before lifting
- Monitoring the beet crop for diseases, such as rhizoctonia, cercospora and nematodes
- Optional additional manual image documentation if irregularities cause problems with lifting, e.g. water in the field, foreign objects, power poles, overseeding etc.
- Pictures during unloading for quality control and documentation of the result of the harvest
- The documentation of the extraneous matter on the ground and weeds in the beet clamp is very useful information for the logistics of transport with reference to the time required, capability of storage of the beets etc.
- Contractors and harvesting cooperatives can use the pictures to show customers as evidence of, for example, requirements for increased work (lifting costs)
- A wide range of sensor data such as rpm, speeds, pressing, volume measurements etc. is much more informative when it is linked with pictures!
