Harvest Tec is once again rolling out new technology for making quality hay. The latest product being introduced is the H2O Precision Moisture Sensor, specifically designed for use on variable and fixed chamber round balers. It is hailed as an efficient, cost-effective sensing system with accurate moisture readings.

It has been designed for round baler operators who want a system that reads moisture accurately in wet silage bales as well as in dry hay. It provides major benefits for producers and custom operators who bale at higher moisture levels as well as for dry hay producers and even those who bale straw.

Harvest Tec’s patented side-to-side technology reads crop moisture from 6% to 60%, higher than any round baler sensor on the market. Moisture is measured consistently across the full width of the bale by dual moisture sensing discs mounted on the chamber walls, making these readings significantly more accurate than hand probing or pad-style sensors.

Harvest Tec’s dual opposing sensors collect five readings per second through the outer six inches of the round bale as it grows for the highest accuracy, a significant advantage of the patented design. The operator has instant knowledge of the crop’s moisture as it is being baled, with continuous display on an Apple® or Android® smart phone or tablet connected wirelessly via Bluetooth® through the free and easy-to-use H2O app from Harvest Tec. Conveniently, the operator is still able to make and receive phone calls while the moisture sensor is at work.

The H2O Precision Moisture Sensor is ideally designed for round baler operators who want to view crop moisture with simplicity and accuracy as it is being baled with a durable, reliable, lower cost sensing and monitoring system.
