Seed Counter C&W S-160

The ground-breaking seed counter C&W S-160 combines a counter and a load cell in a single added-value solution when processing or packaging seeds in bulk. DATA’s Seed Counter C&W S-160 is equipped with an inline load cell that automatically calculates an accurate TSW/TKW for counted seeds. The TSW is displayed on the seed counting machine C&W S-160 console and transmitted to the packing system controller. It is ideally suited for field crops such as Corn, Soybeans, Cotton, Beans, Sweet Corn and others that are sold by numbers of seeds but often handled according to TSW.

• Seeds are poured or directed into the DATA S-160 C&W hopper.
• A sensor in the hopper automatically activates the seed counter, which starts vibrating.
• The counter stops when there are no seeds left in the machine.
• The counted seeds are weighed, and the TSW is calculated.
• The TSW is displayed on the operator console and transmitted to the packing machine controller.
