Any other options out there for a fan sensor for a Case/Flexicoil 3580 air cart other than OEM? Still backordered again and now $300+.
You got to be ****ing me. This dip ****s were bs k ordered last spring.
And the ****ers increased the price a 100 bucks. No wonder case went **** up before

Wait is this the same speed sensors for the fan and wheel speed?

Pretty sure it was always the same sensor on the fan as on the wheels. And I thought this same sensor was used on the old pull-type sprayers as well for ground speed. As far as I remember they were always at least $300.

I built my own sensor that worked on the old sprayers but last I tried it on the air cart it didn't like it, but that might have been because the real problem was under voltage from a failed alternator. I guess you could build one and try it. They are basically bog-standard PNP hall effect sensors with some added circuitry to let the monitor detect shorts and missing sensors.

See "ISO-compatible" Speed Sensors. You'd want to use the PNP inductive proximity sensor and a normal NPN transistor. The sensors themselves are quite cheap. For example: https://www.automationdirect.com/ad...uctive_proximity_sensors/18mm_round/pnk-ap-3a. Adding the circuitry takes a bit of soldering.

It might work, it might not. Perhaps I just have the resistor values not quite right.

I believe so. Could try swapping them.
Ya they’re all the ****ing same. I did a boo boo and wrecked one. Had to drive to Medicine Hat to get a new one after robbing one from the old PT sprayer. RME had like 300 on back order.
Better grab an extra seems I’m always changing them.

Sounds like same go around with flow sensor on the Flexicoil sprayer. CNH has been back ordered forever on those as well. Partsmen at these dealerships could be televangelists for what it’s worth. Nothing to sell but hopes and dreams for a hefty sum.

O yes those. Climbing up with a latter trying not to get covered in spray when you change one
