Automated and position-accurate control of the ZA-M Profis Hydro and the ZA-M Ultra Profis Hydro
The fertiliser spreader is switched on and off fully automatically with accurate positioning provided by means of exact location via the satellite navigation system (DGPS). The same applies to the exact adjustment of the working width.
GPS-Switch is an optional on-board computer which carries out the on/off switching procedures on the headland and in border zones at the correct position using GPS. The on-board computer learns where the field borders are when the tractor first drives around the field with the border spreading system switched on.
On the basis of these borders, the position at which the machine is to be switched on and off or where the working width requires adjusting are defined by the on-board computer depending on the machine parameters (working width, throwing width etc.).
The on-board computer automatically detects whether it is an area that has already been worked and switches the relevant part-width section of the machine off if necessary. A module has been integrated into the ZA-M spreader that takes the differing throw of the spread fan behind the machine into consideration. For example, using this technology, the machine is switched off in a different position when it drives into the headland than when it is driving out of it.
GPS-Switch makes it possible to work exactly and conveniently at any time of the day or night.
