Title
(EN) APPARATUSES, METHODS, AND SYSTEMS FOR PROVIDING DOWN FORCE FOR AN AGRICULTURAL IMPLEMENT
(FR) APPAREILS, PROCÉDÉS ET SYSTÈMES POUR APPLIQUER UNE FORCE VERS LE BAS POUR UN OUTIL AGRICOLE
Abstract
(EN) An agricultural planter (10) includes systems, methods, and apparatus for providing down force pressure at row units (34, 40) of the planter (10). The row units (34, 40) include an electric linear actuator (49) connected to linkages of the row units (34, 40) to provide and maintain a down force pressure for the row unit (34, 40). The linkage (42) may also be removed and replaced with a strut (73) or like mechanism to apply a direct down force pressure to components of the row unit (34, 40). One or more sensors (62) can be included to obtain information related to the ground to automatically adjust the amount of down force provided based upon a ground characteristic in order to maintain a substantially uniform furrow depth.
(FR) L'invention concerne un semoir agricole qui comprend des systèmes, des procédés et un appareil permettant d'appliquer une force vers le bas au niveau des unités de rangée du semoir. Les unités de rangée peuvent comprendre un dispositif d'actionnement linéaire électrique connecté à des liaisons des unités de rangée pour appliquer et maintenir une force de pression vers le bas pour l'unité de rangée. La liaison peut également être retirée et remplacée par une entretoise ou un mécanisme similaire pour appliquer une force de pression vers le bas directe à des composants de l'unité de rangée. Un ou plusieurs capteurs peuvent être inclus pour obtenir des informations concernant le sol pour ajuster automatiquement la quantité de force vers le bas appliquée d'après une caractéristique du sol afin de maintenir une profondeur de sillon sensiblement uniforme.
