Any way to get Fan speed and low bin level sensors into Ag Leader planter monitoring?

Subject: App Rate Module for a Tach?

Southern Minnesota Between Freeborn & Wells
Here's a thought and I don't know if it would be a good idea or not. Ag Leader's Application Rate module can do a variety of things. One is that it can be connected to a flow meter and it will show the applied rate per acre. I'm thinking that this MIGHT be able to be used as a Tach for the Fan speed. The Application Rate module can show the applied rate but I'm thinking it can also show the flow rate/minute. If so this would be directly related to the flow meter turbine speed or in this case the fan speed. The flow meter cal number might be changed so the displayed rate in gallons/minute is really the speed of the fan in revolutions/minute.

If this would work it would require the multi-product unlock and the Application Rate Module itself. A stand alone shaft tachometer display is probably a better idea.
