SET YOUR SIGHT ON HEADSIGHT

Frustrated with down corn?
Do you need better protection?

If you are looking to maximize your yield and your profits, look to Headsight.

Headsight is the only source you'll need for corn and standing grain header height control.

At the heart of the Headsight header height control system is a patented flexible poly paddle that allows for precise header height control over all types of terrain. Other systems will dig into the soil and damage the system when in reverse, but not Headsight. Its' design is operator friendly-having been designed by a working farm family.

Corn header height control systems were our first products, but we've expanded into standing grains as well. Our system is designed to fit on draper, rigid, and flex headers used in standing grains and like its corn counterpart is simple yet durable and versatile.

Knowing the farmer is our business, and we pride ourselves on problem solving. Knowing that farmers may use unmatched combines and headers, we carry a full line of electrical adapters that will fit virtually any combination! And we are pleased to introduce Truesight- a high accuracy row-crop autosteer control system for corn harvesting!

If you are looking to maximize your yield and your profits, set your sight on Headsight.

Truesight®

Truesight® is a high accuracy row-crop autosteer control system for corn harvesting. Truesight® works by using mechanical sensing wands to feel the rows and integrates with an existing steering device to guide the combine down the row. It is not tied to GPS, therefore can be installed on any combine once a steering valve or motor is installed.

Headsight sensors for Corn Headers
When it comes to the protection of your header, it’s all about accuracy, reliability and ease of use.

  • Horizon™ - offers the most advanced header control and diagnostics at your finger tips.
  • Insight - single controller that offers solutions to all header control needs.
  • Foresight® Option - improves header control near ground.
  • Magic Power Boost Option - Allows Insight or Horizon™ to unlock more horsepower in JD S-series and some 70-series combines.

Headsight sensors for Grain Headers
HEADSIGHT’s patented design gives you the best header control on the market.

  • Standard - The versatile and robust Standard sensor design mounts immediately behind the cutterbar for flex, draper, and stripper headers. Header specific mounting brackets are available for most popular header models.
  • Terrace - The narrow profile of the Terrace sensor allows the sensor to mount in front of the header on the crop dividers – giving the combine an even earlier warning of changes in ground conditions. The Terrace sensor system is recommended for operators with challenging terrain or high harvesting speeds.
  • Low-Profile - The compact Low-Profile sensor mounts directly under the cutterbar using the existing cutterbar guard bolts. This mount allows easy installation on rigid cutterbar headers. Single controller that offers solutions to all header control needs.
  • Feathersight® - allows seemless operation from on ground to off ground operation. Combines the operating range of the height sensors with the float mode to give seamless operation through the whole range from high in the air to heavy pressure on the ground, including the ability to feather the header lightly on the ground.


TRUESIGHT®

Truesight-True Row Guidance

Truesight® is a high accuracy row-crop autosteer control system for corn harvesting. Truesight® works by using mechanical sensing wands to feel the rows and integrates with an existing steering device to guide the combine down the row. It is not tied to GPS, therefore can be installed on any combine once a steering valve or motor is installed.

“We harvested 3,500 acres of down corn at 3 to 3.5 mph where we rarely saw the tips on the snouts. Without TrueSight we couldn’t even find the rows. The operator fatigue that it saved in down and standing corn is unbelievable.”
~Winston in Illinois

Headsight Sensors for Corn Headers

Horizon™

Headsight's Horizon™ offers the most advanced header control and diagnostics at your finger tips.

A new user interface in-cab makes it easier to access. Horizon uses the existing OEM display and requires no additional monitors in the cab. ISO-compatible interface uses world-wide standard technology and displays on Virtual Terminal. An external USB port allows for easier updates.

Horizon has a faster processor allowing for quicker responces and more accurate calibrations. The new automatic calibration is performed from the cab, so no additional trips up and down the ladder. It automatically detects critical information by simply lowering the header. A calibration quality feedback helps ensure accurate calibration for maximum performance. Advanced PinPoint diagnostic features continously monitor sensor and wiring health.

Featuring added standard software including Foresight, Magic Power Boost and Feathersight. Horizon has more optional capabilities such as Truesight sensing, simpler calibration, more in-cab performance control, and auto-crop-detect.

Insight


  • Single controller that offers solutions to all header control needs.

Foresight® Option

Foresight is a performance upgrade option available on any Headsight header control system using the Insight control box.

  • The PROBLEM: At low operating heights where you need the best header control, you have the worst. Height control sensors lose 50-75% of their ability to control height while the snout tip is touching the ground.
  • The SOLUTION: Foresight brings it back!

The Foresight Advantage:

  • Improves header control near the ground
  • Increases harvestable yield in down corn
  • Adds protection for chopping heads
  • Allows faster harvest speeds

We can run closer to the ground faster… we increased speed 30-40% in down corn by adding Foresight™ and we were very comfortable in doing that.”
- Brad Dorcey Moro, IL

Magic Power Boost Option

Magic Power Boost is an Optional Module in the Insight box that unlocks more horsepower from your combine. (9870STS requires Intelligent Power Management option on combine).
The Magic Power Boost option allows operators with any make or model of corn head to take advantage of same additional combine power available with John Deere Stalkmaster head.

With the many advantages of our patented height sensors and the ability of mounting up to five sensors on any header, discover even more reasons to consider a Headsight header height control system on your combine.

Headsight Sensors for Grain Headers

See why HEADSIGHT’s patented design gives you the best header control on the market.

  • Provides combine integrated height and tilt control for grain headers.
  • Includes 1-year parts warranty
  • Sensors mount using existing bolts on most headers or with included brackets.
  • All sensors (up to 5) independently control height.
  • Sensing point moves forward at lower cutting heights
  • Installs on most combines and headers made in past 30 years.
  • Works with many different standing grains
  • Feathersight® option- allows seemless operation from on ground to off ground operation.

STANDARD

The versatile and robust Standard sensor
design mounts immediately behind the
cutterbar for flex, draper, and stripper
headers. Header specific mounting brackets
are available for most popular header models.

TERRACE

The narrow profile of the Terrace sensor
allows the sensor to mount in front of the
header on the crop dividers – giving the
combine an even earlier warning of changes
in ground conditions. The Terrace sensor
system is recommended for operators with
challenging terrain or high harvesting speeds.

LOW-PROFILE

The compact Low-Profile sensor mounts
directly under the cutterbar using the existing
cutterbar guard bolts. This mount allows easy
installation on rigid cutterbar headers.

FEATHERSIGHT

There are 2 modes for grain header height control(HHC), normal HHC using height sensors, or float mode. But neither one allows you to run HHC near or lightly on the ground. Feathersight combines the operating range of the height sensors with the float mode to give seamless operation through the whole range from high in the air to heavy pressure on the ground, including the ability to feather the header lightly on the ground.

Feathersight is an option on any HEADSIGHT header height control system for a grain platform. Feathersight is often used in low crops near the ground such as peas, lentils, pulse crops and down wheat.

Feathersight uses HEADSIGHT’s Insight control box to read both the header height sensors and the feederhouse lift cylinder pressure to control the header and float it on the ground.

We tie into the existing lift cylinder pressure sensor or add one if the combine is not equipped
