Accurate placement of the seed

To avoid the over and under sowing at critical areas that often occurs in practice, precise sowing is very important. The remedy for the accurate placement is offered by the half-side control which reduces the relevant working width to half so that, especially in short-work and on the headland, a significant saving is achieved. The two halves of the drill each correspond to one controllable part-width section.

Seed tube monitoring

An additional useful assistance system is the optional seed tube monitoring which immediately detects blockages at the coulter and in the seed pipe. Directly behind the distributor head, sensors check the seed flow inside the seed tubes. The system automatically detects when the drill is tramlining. Especially during long working days, the monitoring is an elegant possibility to check the performance.

AMADRILL+ -Precise seed rates and intuitive operation

AMADRILL+ is the operator-friendly terminal for AMAZONE seed drills. Its clear design, with unmistakable symbols and bold figures on the display, offers great convenience. Especially on farms with temporary drivers and short seasons, it is an advantage to equip what would be otherwise a complex seed drill with such a simple, intuitive operating terminal. AMADRILL+ controls the fully electric metering of the machine. A simple key pressure is sufficient for calibration. After the calibration rate has been entered, the system adjusts itself independently. The specific benefits are shown at the field's edge: The function "pre-metering" offers convenience when sowing the field edges. Via the press of a button, the electric metering can be switched off, so that, for instance, preliminary work at the headland without sowing, is quickly and simply possible. Needless to say the usual functions of a modern seed drill controller are included: Simple setting and control of the tramline rhythm, in-cab seed rate control, monitoring of the blower fan and of the seed shaft and the integration of the fill level sensor in the seed hopper.

GPS-Switch with AutoPoint

The new AutoPoint system automatically determines the delay time, thus the time between the start and the end of the metering process and takes into account the conveying behaviour of the seed at the coulter. Via a sensor on the coulter, seed flow is constantly checked during every switch on and off. This allows an immediate response to any changes in the conveying behaviour of the seed or to changes in the driving behaviour. This automatic switching is rounded off by the driver assist system in the operator terminal which indicates to the operator the optimum forward speed when driving into and out of the headland.

Segmented distributor head with electric half-side shut-off

The segmented distributor head is located behind the seed hopper and directly above the coulters. This arrangement ensures a short conveying time for the seed. The optional electric half-side shut-off helps to reduce any over-sowing on the headland or round the field border and thus saves seed. Via the half-side shut-off, the drill metering can be comfortably controlled via the terminal in wedge shaped fields or on a diagonal headland. Additionally via GPS, the automated switching of half the working width is possible. Either when using the electric half-side shut-off or during a tramline bout, the seed rate is reduced automatically. The benefits: + Electric half-side shut-off + Short conveying times for the seed + Reduction in overlap saves seed + Minimising dust creation inside the seed hopper because no seed is rerouted

Variable tramline control

With the aid of the tramline shut-offs, in total up to six seed rows per side can be switched off. The resulting wider tramlines are well-suited for the use of husbandry tractors with tyre widths up to 1,050 mm at a row spacing of 15 cm and 875 mm at a row spacing of 12.5 cm. In this way, AMAZONE takes into account the demands due to wider and wider husbandry tractor tyres. Whilst shut off when tramlining, the seed rate is automatically reduced.
