Title
(EN) GRAIN HANDLING SYSTEM AND METHOD
(FR) SYSTEME ET PROCEDE DE MANIPULATION DE GRAINS
Abstract
(EN)


A grain handling system includes a logic device connected to a piece of
equipment. A sensor subsystem includes an
optical sensor receiving optical inputs from grain particles and a particle
sensor, which can comprise a microphone or an accelerometer.
The equipment includes a paddle elevator comprising multiple paddles connected
to a chain. The sensor subsystem receives grain flow
data from intermittent grain throws by the paddle elevator and generates
corresponding data sets with grain flow arrival timing and grain
particle characteristics. A grain handling method includes the steps of
sensing intermittent grain throws and grain quality characteristics
for controlling an operating parameter of a grain-handling piece of equipment.
