Automatic weighing system for sequential monitoring of forage drying

, : Automatic weighing system for sequential monitoring of forage drying. Transactions of the ASAE, American Society of Agricultural Engineers 30(4): 873-877

An automatic weighing system was designed and fabricated to monitor weight changes of forage samples during drying. The system had a multiple samples monitoring capability and was proportioned to fit inside a walk-in environment chamber. Samples were weighed using a bending type load cell connected to a microcomputer. Data recording and storage were initiated by a remote trigger to the microcomputer and through software commands.
