This paper describes the use of magnetic sensors in fault monitoring of a conventional planter that does not have embedded technology. An alternative solution for small and medium farmers in the fault detection that are common and that generate negative impacts on production. The control algorithm allows the parameterization and configuration of embedded system for different types of equipment. A case study was conducted in rural property, with the installation of the control system in a planter. Results show that the fault detection was satisfactory with the sound alerts generated at all failure scenarios.
