Electronics

Electronic systems have become an important part of intelligent crop production because they make available to the practice numerous sensible new technologies. So, sensoric-, control- and regulation technologies allow considerable savings of assets and help to improve the exploitation of yield potentials. At the same time they save the environment. On the other hand the registration of yield relevant parameters (soil and yield values) and operating data and their documentation and evaluation can be increasingly automated.

IT Farming from Amazone - overview

IT-Farming von AMAZONE im Überblick

Amazone summarises her activities round about electronics under the key name IT-Farming. The centre is the AMATRON 3 as an universal operater terminal to optimise the operation, rate control, monitoring and documentation at seed drills, sprayers and fertiliser spreaders from Amazone. Due to defined and opened interfaces AMATRON 3 is at the same time in the centre of a network for data transfer with different other IT farming technologies.

Machine specific terminals

Die maschinenspezifischen Terminals

As basic equipment for machine operation Amazone offers to the customers machine specific terminals. In their function and display they are matched to the relevant machine and are of good value for money. The electronic remote control of specific functions and the display of different relevant parameters are the centre of operation.

Amatron 3 terminal

Der Amatron 3 - Einer für alles

Amatron 3 is the machine overlapping operator station for fertiliser spreaders, field sprayers and seed drills and allows the optimised operation of machine functions, rate control and monitoring. Being fully downward compatible to AMATRON+ and upward compatible to ISOBUS this implement is the bridge between the NON-ISOBUS and the ISOBUS world.

Terminal Amapad

Amapad

With the new, innovative AMAPAD operator terminal Amazone provides a comprehensive and high class solution for  GPS application, GPS based part width section control, steering systems and for Precision Farming application.  

GPS-Switch - automated part width section switching

GPS-Switch

GPS-Switch in conjunction with a GPS receiver allows the instantenous switching (on/off, part width section switching) of AMAZONE crop protection sprayers, fertiliser spreaders, and pneumatic seed drills.

GPS-Track for AMATRON 3

GPS-Track

The GPS track parallel guidance system proves to be a huge help for orientation within the field. It features different track modes, such as A-B line, contour following and an obstacle function. The tracks are clearly numbered all the way through. The deviation from the ideal line is graphically shown in the display; clear steering recommendations keep you in the track. Also the distance to the next bout is accurately displayed – for an ideal orientation. Of course, GPS-Track also works as a “stand-alone“ system even without an implement attached.

 

GPS-Maps for AMATRON 3

GPS-Maps für AMATRON 3

In addition to the ISO-XML-data management, the job management of the terminal is also able to process application maps, meaning, depending on the objective and the terminal, several possibilities for a part-area site specific application – according to a map or to a sensor. Which system is most suitable and will best serve the individual demands and requirements is just up to you as the user.

Automated field related documentation (ASD)

Automatisierte Schlagbezogene Dokumentation (ASD)

Together with various partners Amazone has introduced the ASD interface (automated field related documentation [Automatisierte Schlagbezogene Dokumentation]) for the documentation of the finished work. Numerous electronic field card indexes assist this kind of a comfortable automated data transfer.
