Headsight Poly Arm Height Sensor - Corn

Headsight® Sensors are the best on the market.

Why Headsight® Sensors?

When it comes to the protection of your header, it’s all about accuracy, reliability and ease of use.  The features of the Headsight sensor demonstrate the years of experience and design that have been focused to achieve these goals.

ACCURACY

  • Forward Sensing | The curved shape of our arm moves the sensing point forward as the sensor nears the ground.
  • Down Pressure Spring | Keeps the sensor on the ground even at higher operating speeds.

RELIABILITY

  • All Stainless Steel Construction | Corrosion resistant and high strength resistance
  • Hall Effect Sensor | Uses a magnetic field to sense rotational angle.  This eliminates moving parts and increases sensor life.
  • Flexible Poly Arm | Allows the sensing arm to flex, which absorbs most of the shock and abuse of the field, thus increasing the life of the rotating shaft.

EASE OF USE

  • Reverse Spring Trip | Allows the sensing arm to flip forward if the operator reverses the combine.
  • Oil Impregnated Bushing | The rotating shaft has an oil impregnated bushing that never needs greasing.

 

Select the Correct Number of Sensors

Save money by purchasing more sensors!  Good header height control should optimize header performance and protect the header.  The more sensing points you have across the header the better these goals will be met.

The bulk of the cost of a HHC system is in the controller and the main harness.  Don't short change yourself by running too few sensors to adequatly sense your terrain.
