Seed moves from the XP Meter™ Reservoir to the base of the meter and forms a seed pool.
The positive air pressure of the XP Meter™ allows the rotating seed plate to ‘pick-up’ seed from the seed pool within the vented area of the meter.
A singulator "nudges" the seeds attached to the plate to remove doubles and set the seed properly on the hole.
Seed exits the vented area through the extractor port and is entrained into the seedtube air stream, for placement in the soil by the opener.
A seed sensor counts each seed as it travels by. The signal is fed to the planter controller to confirm accurate singulation during operation.
The ejector wheel cleans the holes before re-entering the seed pool.
