GPS-Switch with AutoPoint, this innovation very precisely automatically switches on and off the metering system of pneumatic seed drills on the headland. Up until now, when utilising GPS-Switch on pneumatic seed drills, calculating the different delay times between the switching on and off of the metering units and the seed flow at the coulter was a problem. The new AutoPoint system, with the aid of a sensor at the coulter, is able to determine the actual seed flow and thus the exact delay time and the exact switching points to ensure the optimum start and stop of the metering cassette on the headland. Thus, overlaps and seed gaps are safely prevented and the efficiency of the seed drill is further increased. In addition, GPS-Switch with AutoPoint includes a driver's assistance system which, via a preview bar, displays on the ISOBUS terminal the position at which the system will switch. So, the driver can preselect the correct speed and maintain it during the complete headland turn around.
