I have an offset header installed on my combine. What should I put in as my Header Center Offset in the AFS Pro 600 or AFS Pro 700 display?

Related product:

  • AFS Pro 600
  • AFS Pro 700
  • Combine Yield Monitoring

Header Center Offset is used for calculating autoguidance swaths and accurately mapping harvested regions. It is critical that this value be accurately entered in the combine display.

The Header Center Offset is determined by measuring the horizontal distance (parallel to the long axis of the front axle) between the GPS receiver and the center of the header.

If the center of the header is to the LEFT of the GPS receiver, the Header Center Offset will be a negative value. If the center of the header is to the RIGHT of the GPS receiver, the Header Center Offset will be a positive value. All directions are referenced while facing the normal direction of travel.

What is the difference between Basic and Advanced interface levels in the AFS Pro 600 or AFS Pro 700?

Related product:

  • AFS Pro 600
  • AFS Pro 700

The AFS Pro 600 and AFS Pro 700 offer two user-selectable interface levels. The interface level can be changed by going to Toolbox > Display Setup.

The "Basic" Interface Level is intended for operators who require only basic machine-control functionality, and is NOT recommended for operators needing precision farming capabilities. Basic mode disables several display features, including reading and writing to the external datacard or USB flash drive, mapping, prescription rate control, MultiSwath+, ISOBUS Task Controller, automatic section control, advanced yield monitor calibration, and advanced Product attribute setup.

The "Advanced" Interface Level is recommended for the majority of operators. Advanced mode enables all activated features in the display, and permits data to be recorded to the external datacard or USB flash drive.

If you want to delete ALL data, including setup values such as Grower, Farm, and Field names, choose Data Type "Grower" in Step 3. You can then export setup information to the display from the desktop software, or copy setup information from another AFS Pro 600 or AFS Pro 700.

What is the file format used by the Case IH AFS Pro 600 or AFS Pro 700 display?

Related product:

  • AFS Pro 600
  • AFS Pro 700

The primary file format used by all Case IH color displays is called "Voyager 2". This file format is used for all Case IH proprietary systems, including 1200 planters, factory yield monitors, AFS AccuControl, AFS AccuGuide, 3rd-party serial rate control, performance logging, and other related functions.

This file format creates a folder on the datacard or USB flash drive, with datestamped name ending in ".CN1". Inside this folder are a number of other folders, along with a file named "index.vy1". Some desktop software application will require you to choose the index.vy1 file when you import your data into the software.

When using the ISOBUS Task Controller (software v28 and higher), the AFS Pro 700 uses the industry-standard ISOXML file format for all data related to the Task Controller (prescription rate control, application rate logging, etc.) Data not related to the Task Controller continues to be logged in the Voyager2 file format.

Effective with Precision Farming v30.6 and higher, the AFS Pro 700 is also compatible with standard Esri Shapefiles, for importing selected data. Contact your local Case IH dealer for details.

Can setup information (Growers, Farms, and Fields) be transferred from one Case IH color display to another?

Related product:

  • AFS Pro 600
  • AFS Pro 700

Yes! Most management items (Growers, Farms, Fields, Operators, Containers, Products, Field Marks, Boundaries, Obstacles, and Swaths) can be transferred from one display to another via the datacard or USB flash drive.

This will happen automatically when the target display is powered up with the datacard or USB flash drive from the originating vehicle installed. Note that Tasks are vehicle specific and cannot be transferred.

Growers, Farms, Fields, and Swaths can also be exported to the AFS Pro 600 or AFS Pro 700 from the Case IH AFS desktop software.

What CompactFlash card or USB flash drive brand should I use, and what capacities can I use?

What cable is needed to export GPS from a 162/252/262/372 GPS receiver to a 3rd-party device?

Related product:

  • AFS Pro 600
  • AFS Pro 700
  • AFS 162 Receiver
  • AFS 372 GNSS Receiver

There is a need for multiple GPS outputs from the 162, 252, 262, and 372 GPS receivers.

This is especially common when exporting GPS to a secondary control or logging system on an AccuGuide-equipped vehicle. This condition is found most often on tractors running AFS AccuGuide autoguidance and pulling a planter that runs row clutches via a second control system (not via the AFS Pro 600 or AFS Pro 700).

Use CNH part number ZTN55224 to export GPS signals from a 162, 252, 262, or 372 receiver to a 3rd-party device. This cable is designed to allow Port C to be utilized when Ports A and B are already in use (for example, when using RTK and the Joey radio). If Port A or Port B is unused, you may use cable 87298129 instead of ZTN55224.

On vehicles equipped with AFS AccuGuide, it is also possible to export a corrected GPS position directly from the NavII or NavIII controller to a 3rd-party device. Use cable 87298129, or, if the cable is completely inside the cab, use 380002422. Configure the GPS export via the Toolbox > NAV screen in the AFS Pro 700.

Do I need to complete my yield monitor calibrations any specific order?

Related product:

  • AFS Pro 600
  • AFS Pro 700
  • Combine Yield Monitoring

Yes. All Case IH AFS yield monitors should be calibrated in the following order:

  1. 1. Maximum Working Height (called Header Stop Height in some older Case IH displays). Note that this calibration must be completed for each Crop Type. Failure to properly calibrate Maximum Working Height may result in unexpected data recording behavior.
  2. 2. Distance Calibration (called Tire Radius Calibration on some Case IH combines)
  3. 3. Moisture Calibration
  4. 4. Weight (Yield) Calibration
  5. 5. Area Calibration (optional, and can only be performed after harvest in a field is complete)

I am going to calibrate my yield monitor and I remember from a clinic that there were several tips to successful calibrations. Can you tell me what those are?

Related product:

  • AFS Pro 600
  • AFS Pro 700
  • Combine Yield Monitoring

There are a number of tips that can improve the accuracy of your yield monitor calibrations.

  • Maximum Working Height (Header Stop Height): Must be set for each Crop Type. It is best to do this with the appropriate header installed on the machine.
  • Distance Calibration (Tire Radius Calibration): A minimum travel distance of 200' is required. However, Case IH recommends a travel distance of 400'. All distances should be measured with a tape, rather than a wheel. The Distance Calibration or Tire Radius Calibration should be performed in field conditions, with the header installed, proper tire pressure, and approximately half a tank of grain.
  • Moisture Calibration: Moisture Calibration must be performed for each Crop Type. Case IH recommends using the Moisture Calibration Wizard. Ensure that the grain tank is empty before beginning harvest. Continue harvesting until the "Instant Moisture" and "Average Moisture" readings for the Task are very close. Take 4-5 hand samples from the load and measure the actual moisture of each with an accurate, calibrated tester. Take an average of all the samples and enter this into the display as the "actual" moisture. Select no more than 3 Tasks for use in the Moisture Calibration, and ensure that the %Error for all of the selected Tasks are closely grouped.
  • Grain Weight Calibration (Yield Calibration): The grain weight calibration must be performed for each Crop Type. Case IH recommends using the Moisture Calibration Wizard. Ensure that the grain tank is empty before beginning harvest. Select a target weight between 3000 and 10000 pounds, and ensure that each Task is within 5% of this target weight. Each Task must be harvested at a consistent flow rate, but flow rate should be varied among different Tasks. For example, cut 6 Tasks, with 2 at Low Flow, 2 at Medium Flow, and 2 at High Flow. To modify flow rate, adjust ground speed or your working width. Do not unload on the go during a grain weight calibration! Once you have completed 4 or more calibration loads, pick at least 4 loads with different flow rates and consistent %Error. By default, new calibrations only apply to the current harvest Task and future harvest Tasks. Previous data can be updated in Data Management > Apply.

It says in my operator's manual that I shouldn't use loads with greater than 10% error when calibrating my grain weight on my yield monitor. All of my loads are over 10% error, what should I do?

Related product:

  • AFS Pro 600
  • AFS Pro 700
  • Combine Yield Monitoring

First, you need to verify that there is nothing mechanically wrong with your yield monitoring system.

Common sources of error include moisture in connectors (often as a result of pressure-washing the vehicle), damaged wiring harnesses), and a deflector plate clearance (if required) that is not within spec. Contact your Case IH dealer for assistance identifying these or other issues that might be to blame.

If you find that there is no mechanical issue with the machine and ALL of your grain weight calibration loads are consistently over 10% (but with similar error %), then it is usually safe to go ahead and calibrate with those loads. An example: You have 6 grain weight calibration loads at varying levels of crop flow. Your errors range from 12% - 13.8%. Select all 6 loads and calibrate. Since the error is consistent, this set of loads should produce acceptable calibration results.

My AFS Yield Monitor operator's manual says that I should use loads larger than 3,000 pounds for my grain weight calibrations on my yield monitor. Is it o.k. for me to use a semi-trailer for calibration loads?

Related product:

  • AFS Pro 600
  • AFS Pro 700
  • Combine Yield Monitoring

Yes. Just remember that you will need to complete loads (Tasks) at different flow rates and in some Crop Types is will take a long time to fill a semi trailer on low flow.

Also, remember that if you use a semi trailer for 1 load, you need to use it for all your grain weight calibration loads, as the weights of each calibration load must be within a 5% range. The recommended weight for calibration loads is 10,000lbs.

There always seems to be so much going on the first few days of harvest. Do I have to calibrate my yield monitor on the first day?

Related product:

  • AFS Pro 600
  • AFS Pro 700

No. You can calibrate your yield monitor at any time during harvest.

To apply current calibrations to previously harvested data in an AFS Pro 600 or AFS Pro 700, use the "Apply Cal Values" feature in Data Management > Apply.

What is the difference between Overlap Control and Boundary Control?

Related product:

  • AFS Pro 600
  • AFS Pro 700
  • AccuControl

Overlap Control refers to the ability of the AFS Pro 600 or AFS Pro 700 to automatically shut off seed drive motors or row clutches based on the position of a planter section relative to an already-applied area of the field. Overlap Control is based on the as-applied map created by the display. (This feature also applies to Patriot Sprayers and Titan Floaters equipped with the AFS Pro 600 or AFS Pro 700 application control system.)

To enable Overlap Control, set the Overlap Control window to "On" in the Toolbox > Overlap Setup screen. Then set the desired Percent Overlap. The default value is 99%. This means that 99% of a section (hydraulically controlled or clutch controlled) must be overlapping a previously applied area before the section will turn off. A high percentage results in more overlap and very little skip; a lower percentage results in more skip and less overlap. The allowable range is 1% - 99%.

Overlap Control also requires that the Section Control Method, Start Early Distance, Stop Late Distance, Bar Distance, and Product Delay be set correctly. (see below)

Boundary Control refers to the ability of the AFS Pro 600 or AFS Pro 700 to automatically shut off seed drive motors or row clutches based on the position of a planter section relative to an inner or outer boundary in a field. (This feature also applies to Patriot Sprayers and Titan Floaters equipped with the AFS Pro 600 or AFS Pro 700 application control system.) Boundary Control is based on boundaries, and is not related to the as-applied map. To use Boundary Control, you must have existing Inner and/or Outer Boundaries for the current Field. Boundaries can be recorded in the AFS Pro 600 or AFS Pro 700, or can be exported from a compatible desktop software application.

To enable Boundary Control, set the Boundary Control window to "Yes" in the Toolbox > Overlap Setup screen. Then set the desired Percent Out Of Bounds. The default value is 1%. This means that when 1% of a section is outside an Outer Boundary (or inside an Inner Boundary) the section will shut off. A low value will result in very little application outside the boundary. A higher value will result in more application outside the boundary, but will also make the system less susceptible to the effects of GPS drift. The allowable range is 1% to 99%.

(Video) Case IH Dealer Service Tech Talks Genuine Parts & Maintenance

Boundary Control operates independently of Overlap Control, and is not affected by Start Early Distance or Stop Late Distance.

How do I measure Bar Distance for a 1200/1205 Series AFS planter?

Related product:

  • AFS Pro 600
  • AFS Pro 700
  • AccuControl

Bar Distance (Toolbox > Config) is the distance from the corrected GPS reference point on the vehicle to the seed drop point on the planter. It should be measured horizontally, on the ground, at the tractor centerline, with the planter in planting position.

The corrected GPS reference point will vary depending on the vehicle model and the GPS receiver offsets entered in the Toolbox > GPS Setup screen. Refer to yourAFS Pro 600 or AFS Pro 700 Operator's Manual for Precision Farming and Framework Softwarefor more information.

Why is Product Delay important?

Related product:

  • AFS Pro 600
  • AFS Pro 700
  • AccuControl

Product Delay (Work Condition > Controller Setup) is the amount of time that elapses between the operator starting the product drives and the product actually hitting the ground. This measurement is extremely important because it provides ground speed compensation for the rate or section control system. As travel speeds increase, the accuracy and precision of the Product Delay becomes even more critical to proper performance.

What are Start Early Distance and Stop Late Distance?

Related product:

  • AFS Pro 600
  • AFS Pro 700
  • AccuControl

Start Early Distance (previously called Lead Distance) is the distance used to start the planter when exiting an overlap area. This distance can be adjusted to ensure that the planter turns on at the appropriate time to prevent overlaps or skips when leaving a previously-planted area (such as a headland). If your planter is starting BEFORE leaving overlap, decrease the Start Early Distance by the distance between the start and the overlap. If your planter is starting AFTER leaving the overlap area, increase the Start Early Distance by the distance between the start and the overlap.

Stop Late Distance (previously called Lag Distance) is the distance used to stop the planter when entering an overlap area. This distance can be adjusted to ensure that the planter turns off at the appropriate time to prevent overlaps or skips when entering a previously-planted area (such as a headland). If your planter is stopping BEFORE entering the overlap area, increase the Stop Late Distance by the distance between the stop and the overlap. If your planter is stopping AFTER entering the overlap area, decrease the Stop Late Distance by the distance between the overlap and the stopping point.

The allowable range for Start Early and Stop Late Distance is 0ft to 25ft.

Start Early Distance and Stop Late Distance work in conjunction with Bar Distance (the distance from the GPS receiver reference point to the seed tube) and Product Delay (the elapsed time between the "plant" command from the display, and when seed actually hits the ground). Both Bar Distance and Product Delay must be set correctly to ensure that the Start Early and Stop Late Distance values work properly. Start Early and Stop Late distances should only be adjusted to fine-tune performance after configuring Bar Distance and Product Delay. If you feel that you need negative values for Start Early and/or Stop Late distances, you likely have errors in your Bar Distance and/or Product Delay.

If I am planting with prescriptions, should I put in a default population in the Toolbox > Product > Default Rate window?

Related product:

  • AFS Pro 600
  • AFS Pro 700
  • AccuControl

Yes, always assign a Default Rate for the Product when defining a Product in the Product Setup screen (Toolbox > Product).

You should also assign the Min Rate, Max Rate, and Delta Rate for the Product. This will ensure that the Product setup is completed successfully.

When a prescription is exported from the desktop software, the software will ask the user for a default rate to be used when the vehicle leaves the prescription zone. If a default rate is not specified, the prescription will use a default rate of "0" for product application outside the prescription zone.

The Default Rate assigned in the Product Setup screen (Toolbox > Product) is only used during manual product application.

When I use AccuControl to apply liquid fertilzer, it seems that I cannot get the rate dialed in. I used the meter cal value on the Raven flow meter but I seem to be under-applying.

Related product:

  • AFS Pro 700
  • Field IQ™ Crop Input Control Systems

Raven flow meter calibrations (CAL) are expressed in Pulses per 10 gallons. Case IH displays express meter cals in Pulses per 1 gallon so the value needs to be converted.

Raven CAL = 1200

1200 = 1200 pulses/10 gallons

To get the Raven calibration converted to a value acceptable to the Pro 700 we need to divide by 10.
For example:

1200 pulses/10 = 120 pulses

Enter 120 as the CAL value in the Pro 700

The target rate and applied rate are for actual nitrogen. When using NH3, 82% is actually nitrogen. This means that if the target rate is entered as 180 lbs, the applied rate will be 180 lbs of actual nitrogen, but 220 lbs of total NH3 will be applied. To calculate the total NH3 from the actual nitrogen, multiply the actual nitrogen value by 1.22. To calculate the actual nitrogen from the total NH3, multiply the total NH3 value by 0.82.

Why isn't my prescription showing up in the AFS display?

Related product:

  • AFS Pro 300
  • AFS Pro 600
  • AFS Pro 700

There are multiple reasons why the prescription may not show in your AFS display.

  • First, verify that you only have one (1) "*.cn1" folder on the data card. The AFS display will only read a single *.cn1 folder. When you export a prescription from the desktop software, make sure to backup the existing *.cn1 folder that is on the data card, and then delete the existing *.cn1 folder from the data card before placing the new *.cn1 folder onto the data card.
  • Next, verify that there are not duplicate Grower/Farm/Field names in the AFS Pro 700 display. The prescription is only stored under a single Grower/Farm/Field. Go to Home > Performace > Profile and touch in the Grower box. If there are multiple Growers with the same name, try selecting each individualy to see if the prescription shows under any of them.
  • The prescription must match the product form of your controller. For example, when using a prescription for planting, the prescription must be exported as a planting prescription, or when using a prescription for liquid application, the prescription must be exported as a liquid or spraying prescription. If the prescription form and the controller form are not the same, the prescription will not be available for use.
  • Check that your Work Condition setup is correct. Go to Home > Work Condition > Layer. Make sure that the correct controller is assigned to a layer and a product is assigned to the same layer. Also make sure that there are no errors (an ERR button above the product or layer box).

Why is the RowGuide on my Axial-Flow combine not working even though I am seeing voltage feedback on the display?

Related product:

  • AccuGuide Auto Guidance System

First, ensure that voltages are being measured on the Diag > RowG tab and not in the graph tab. Check to ensure the RowGuide harness is connected to the correct connector. Most Axial-Flow combines have a 4-pin deutsch connector under the cab that will accept the RowGuide harness, however, this is not the appropriate connection for AFS RowGuide. Most Axial-Flow combines will have a separate harness coiled up by the NAV controller, under the RH console, beneath the cover which will need to be pushed through the grommet in the floor to be connected to the RowGuide harness.
