A data acquisition system to monitor a potato digger

Authors: G.C. Misener, W.A. Gerber and CD. McLeod
Description: A micro computer based data acquisition system was developed to monitor draft, hydraulic pressure, forward speed, and primary chain speed of a potato digger. The operating system was MS-DOS 3.3 with a C language program being used for controlling and interfacing the data acquisition process. From data collected under field conditions, relationships were developed between for ward speed and draft of the digger and the required hydraulic pressure of the primary chain drive motor.
