CTS 1000-Viewing Compaction Data in FarmQA Controller
FarmQA Compaction Testing Overview
FarmQA developed the Compaction Testing System (CTS) 1000 with simplicity
and repeatability in mind. The CTS 1000 can efficiently measure compaction accurately,
resulting in trustworthy data. After data is collected in the field, it can be viewed on the
FarmQA Controller by following the instructions below
Syncing CTS 1000 Data
1. Within the FarmQA Compaction App, click on the “Results” tab. You will now see a list of all compaction results that were collected with the device.
2. Connect to WiFi and proceed to click on one of the results in the list that currently says “Synced: No”.
3. After doing so, click on the blue “sync” button on the bottom of the screen.
4. This will initiate an auto syncing process of all samples that were previously not synced.
