KPM II Monitor Operation
PROGRAMMING - SPEED
STEP 1 Press and hold SETUP key to enter programming
mode. Monitor emits several short beeps, followed
by a long beep. On the lower LCD, the SETUP icon
turns on and the arrow head icon will flash, indicating
the user can select an item to program.
NOTE: Monitor must be in a programmable function (row
spacing, units, speed, volume or area) to enter setup. The
monitor will not enter setup in seed population or seed
STEP 2 Press UP or DOWN arrow keys to move flashing
arrow to SPEED. As arrow icon moves, lower LCD
displays selected item current setting.
STEP 3 Press the OK key and the flashing arrow becomes
solid and the audible alarm will sound. The R.H. digit
on the display will be blinking.
The speed constant is used to record how many
pulses are generated per mile (or kilometer) from the
ground speed sensor. The lower LCD will display the
current pulses per mile (or kilometer) using a 6 digit,
no decimal place format. The PULSES per MILE (or
PULSES per KM) icons are turned on.
NOTE: It is highly recommended that a field calibration be
done to establish the PPM/PPKM (Pulses Per Mile/Kilometer)
number on a new machine installation. Several factors can
affect this value such as wheel slip on the magnetic distance
sensor, mounting angle and height on the radar distance
sensor, etc. IT IS NOT UNCOMMON FOR THE SPEED ON
THE MONITOR TO VARy SLIGHTLy FROM THE TRACTOR
SPEEDOMETER. Adjusting PPM/PPKM in the monitor to
make speed agree can cause serious errors in acre/hectare
and population counts. Do field checks to verify populations
and seed spacings.
NOTE: Monitor defaults to 500 PPM (310 PPKM) on new
system installations. This must be changed to obtain
• In field conditions, measure 330 feet (
100 meters, depending on the unit of measurement
• Pull the tractor up to the starting line.
• Press UP and DOWN arrow keys at the same time
and hold them down until CLEAR? icon displays and
monitor beeps several times. Monitor emits a long
beep and number of pulses is cleared.
NOTE: If the PPM/PPKM number starts to count pulses with
the tractor not moving, check the radar for vibration or other
kinds of interference.
• Drive the tractor for 330 feet (1/16 mile) or 100 meters
• The monitor will count the number of pulses and
STEP 4 To exit without saving, press and release the OK
key. The monitor will restore the lower LCD to show
the previous setting of the item, and the arrow icon
will flash, allowing the user to select another item to
To exit and save, press and hold the OK key. The
monitor emits several short beeps and SAVE? icon
is turned on. After a short time a long beep is heard,
and the lower LCD displays “DONE”. Release the OK
key. If the OK key is released BEFORE “DONE” is
displayed, changes WILL NOT BE SAVED. “DONE”
MUST be displayed for save to have occurred.
NOTE: Programming mode may be exited at any time by
pressing the SETUP key. Pressing this key returns monitor
normal operation. All items changed and saved come into
effect immediately. Any items changed, but not saved revert
to original programmed value.
