HCC Inc's SieveSense is a hyper-accurate louver position sensor that enables automatic cleaning shoe adjustments to account for variable crop conditions, terrain environments and cleaning shoe loading conditions. Utilizing closed-loop sensing technology, the SieveSense maximizes harvest efficiency through autonomous louver position adjustments.

SieveSense autonomously accounts for every variable that can influence the louver position – terrain, crop condition (e.g. moisture), shoe shake, etc. – and utilizes real-time position. It utilizes algorithms that can adjust without any involvement from the operator, thus lessening the burden and improving endurance.

Additionally, SieveSense provides the opportunity for predictive maintenance that proactively monitors the overall health of the mechanical system. The internal accelerometer monitors the shoe condition to flag any irregularities or an impending shoe failure, eliminating expensive repairs and downtime.
