Hi my name is***** will be glad to help.

Failed Messages

With the system in operation, if the seed rate in any row falls below two seeds per second, the alarm will sound and the number of the failed rows is displayed without a population. The messages ROW and FAILED are displayed, and the audible alarm sounds continuously. This overrides any other display.

When the planter is stopped, the monitor continues to display the failed message, but the alarm will stop after a few seconds. With the planter stopped, the right-hand switches can be operated to review population for the last 1/200th of an acre.

Hi Dan
I was actually chasing what the "chem" signal was for it is on the screen above the row number, the planter is still planting in that row but the alarm keeps going off so I have turned that row off.Regards

Hi Chris... I have not come up with any information on the chem message as of yet.... I will see what I can find during the week if that's okay. I need to look further into it. My manuals are not describing that

Hi Chris, Did you get this resolved? If not I can opt out and see if someone else might have some info on this. I came up empty as it wasnt even showing in my manuals
