H2O Precision Moisture Sensor

H2O Precision Moisture Sensor for Hay Balers

All baler operators know that moisture variations are a challenge, and being able to accurately determine and monitor your hay moisture is an important key to success. Whether you bale dry hay or high moisture silage round bales, knowing your exact moisture while baling can help you to produce a consistent and high quality crop needed for  your operation.

The H2O Precision Moisture Sensor is the perfect addition to your baler to identify hay moisture variations in the windrow while baling, and is designed for the operators who demand the accuracy of the on-board moisture sensors, but do not need a full preservative applicator. 

The H2O Precision Moisture Sensor is a system designed for operators who need an accurate system that reads moisture in wet silage bales as well as dry hay, and is designed to fit any large square, round baler, and small square baler.

All H2O kits comes with the in-chamber moisture sensors, harness, and processor. The kit uses the operators Apple or Android smart phone or tablet as the monitor, which is wired to the control box via a USB cable, and through the free H2O app available on iTunes or Google Play Store. 

 

Use any smartphone or tablet, Apple or Android, with the free H2O app as the display to monitor the moisture

 

H2O Kit for Round Balers

Consisting of two discs located on each side on the bale chamber, the moisture is measured consistently from side-to-side, across the full width of the bale. Considerably more accurate then hand probing or pad-style sensors, the H2O kit can read moisture levels up to 60%, higher than any round baler sensor on the market.

  • Reads moisture from 5% to 60% accurately
  • Can be used on ANY round baler
  • Rugged disc plates are designed for long-term use with minimal wear
  • Patented side-to-side technology is more accurate than single pad style sensors

 

Moisture discs mounted on the sides of the bale chamber read moisture across the width of the bale

 

H2O Kit for Large and Small Square Balers

The H2O kit for large and small square balers comprise of two star wheel moisture sensors that are mounted in the bale chamber, and moisture is measured consistently from side-to-side, across the full width of the bale. The H2O kit uses the same technology as the current automatic applicators, and is the most accurate stand-alone kit for dense, square bales. 

  • Reads moisture from 5% to 60% accurately on Large Square Balers
  • Reads moisture from 5 to 33% accurately on Small Square Balers
  • Mounts to ANY large or small square baler
  • Durable star wheels turn with the bale and measure moisture through conductivity
  • Patented side-to-side technology is more accurate than single pad style sensor

Star wheels mounted on the bale chamber read moisture across the width of the bale

 

Dye Marker Kit for the H2O Precision Moisture Sensor

The optional Dye Marker Accessory can be added to the H2O Moisture Sensor that will mark every bale that is above a set moisture with a red, food-grade stripe. The bale is marked as it leaves the chamber, allowing the operator to easily identify those bales that are above their own moisture threshold. The food-grade dye mixes with water and applies up to 60 bales.

Round bales in the field that have been marked as high moisture bales, allowing for easy identification

 

The Dye Marker Accessory consists of a tank, pump, end of bale sensor kit (200FCA), harness, and mounts on the baler.  The spray option can be activated by selecting the feature in the H2O App and simply setting the moisture threshold you want to identify.
