Thanks Jeff.

Is Claas the only one that you have to run the header to calibrate?
That’s why I asked about volt readings.

Yep. All other combines require you to NOT run the thresher & header when calibrating!

Thought so, thanks Jeff.
Claas logic lost on me on that one.

At least on the macdon and corn head, you can calibrate with the pto shafts unhooked. I don't like mashing the head down with it running.

Don, you have often mentioned Claas needing to save calibrations, or have header/crop recognition to eliminate repetitive calibrations. Jeff, has headsight ever considered saving calibrations within the Headsight module? At least with the Headsight, it is relatively easy to do, and usually a once per crop event, but it would be a nice feature IMO.

BTW, thanks Jeff for helping with the fifth sensor setup.

The new Claas Convio flex has header recognition I’m told.
Think Fendt has on the Ideal.
But that’s it.

I thought Deere has for a long time. When you are hooked to their header, the combine displays header hours.

I assumed so, but I'm not an owner so what do I know.

Every other modern combine except Claas stores header configs, calibrations, and settings. (i'm not sure about the Versatile).

Yes , we have considered cal storage. In fact we have a system of header recognition and cal storage on a specific conversion kit. WE have discussed doing the same on the Bish Lexion to JD conversion package. However, it doesn't really help, because while we can store the header sensors, the combine needs to do its cal anyway to get lift pressure, feeder stroke, etc. Without the ability to store those as well, having multiple head CAL storage on our controller would be nice, but not a solution.

Its on the list of things that we would like to do....in fact we have discussed building a whole "Header App" set that would use header select, etc. It would keep you from having to reprogram our controller when switching modes (on ground to off ground), but take lots of programming to do. And you would STILL have to recal the combine every time.
