I am or at least was planning to use a clutch control module to run the half width clutches on my 1770. My concern is that, after doing some research, the module needs to sense the clutches to work. I understand that the module switches ground rather than power to stop the section from planting. Currently, I have toggle switches in the cab that I use to power each clutch to stop planting. To accomplish this without rewiring the planter I was planning to use the exiting frame ground on each clutch and use a spdt relay powered by battery + and using the clutch control ground signal to activate the relay, and ultimately powering the clutch to stop planting. By not using the clutch control power output, will the module be satisfied that a clutch is attached? I am concerned (although maybe unnecessarily) that the power demands of the half width clutches is more than the module can or at least should provide. It's difficult to describe exactly what I'm doing, hopefully this makes sense.
