This report details a simple low-cost module-feeder camera system that will allow ginners a real-time view of the module feeder’s dispersing cylinder. In practice we’ve observed that when these systems are installed, the gin crews are much more respondent to keeping the cylinder’s clean which in turn results in a significant reduction in number of plastic calls on bales from the USDA-AMS classing office.
