Central Seed Supply – seed always available when it is needed

Seed is delivered from the central hopper to the reception units above each sowing unit via an air stream. These act as a small intermediate store for seed. The air stream stops automatically when the hopper is full enough so that the internal colour-coded sieve is covered by seed. This also means that no more seed is conveyed from the central hopper to the sowing units. The air stream starts automatically when the amount of seed in each intermediate store has fallen and the sieve can be seen again. Delivery of seed from the central hopper to the sowing unit restarts at this point. The Central Seed Supply System means that each row is constantly kept supplied with seed without any electronic control.

The benefits:

  • Time-saving seed filling thanks to an easily accessible central hopper 
  • Top work rates and quick turn-round times as a result of the large hopper capacity

The singling system – Precise grain planting, higher yields

Reliably singled
The singling system works by using the overpressure principle. The pressure pushes the grain against the nap holes in the rotating centralised singling disc so that they are driven round. As they rotate, the grains under pressure pass three stripper fingers which reliably ensure the singling of the grains on each hole. Excess grains are reliably stripped off, so that any doubles are effectively prevented. This is particularly important for the seed placement accuracy.

  1. Rotating disc
  2. Singling disc

The key feature:

Due to the thoughtful design of the centralised singling unit, the singling disc and the singling pressure chamber are firmly connected to each other.

The advantages of this layout are huge:

  • Metering is carried out exclusively via the tractor's electronic system due to the fact that only a low torque is required for rotation
  • The seal, which is otherwise subject to excessive wear, is not loaded

Hydraulic coulter pressure adjustment

The coulter pressure can be adjusted even more easily and comfortably via the hydraulic coulter pressure adjustment. The coulter pressure can be adjusted to a pressure of up to 350 kg via the operator terminal, even while driving. The SmartForce automatic coulter pressure regulation also ensures that all coulters are automatically adjusted, even in different soil conditions.

SmartForce automatic coulter pressure regulation – The same placement depth in all soil types

Hydraulic coulter pressure with automatic system for consistent placement depth | 1) 30 bar 2) 50 bar

AMAZONE offers the SmartForce automatic coulter pressure regulation system for the folding Precea precision air seeder as an add-on to the hydraulic coulter pressure adjustment.

The particular feature with this system is that the driver does not stipulate the coulter pressure, but rather sets the contact force in the terminal. This contact force is checked by measuring pins in the field. The contact force varies due to different soil types, as the soil acts differently on the unit. The hydraulic system regulates the coulter pressure meaning that the placement depth remains constant. This means that the coulter pressure will be adapted to suit the various different soil conditions on the move. This makes it easier for the driver and results in a more even field emergence.

Simultaneous maintenance of a consistent placement depth and optimum pressure ensures high field emergence and provides the basis for good yields.

Maintaining a consistent placement depth on varying soils or with uneven reconsolidation is a particular challenge for the technology and the user.

SmartForce regulates the required coulter pressure on the basis of the contact force measured on the PreTeC coulter. This ensures that the intended contact force and the placement depth are maintained under all soil conditions.

SmartForce relieves the driver and enables a consistently high quality of work under all conditions.

The measuring pin registers changes in the contact force on varying soils. The ISOBUS-controlled SmartForce system then automatically evens out these fluctuations. As a result, the placement depth remains the same under all soil conditions.
