ZA-TS with Argus Twin


ArgusTwin – Automatic adjustment to the optimum lateral distribution

ZA-TS mit Argus Twin

Via the constantly working on-line monitoring and readjustment of the delivery system, the ArgusTwin system ensures an optimum lateral distribution of the fertiliser. This leads to a more effective fertiliser use and forms the basis for optimum crop management.

The Argus system, which checks the spread fan and automatically regulates the lateral distribution, is based on radar technology that is independent of dust and pollution and thus provides reliable results in practice. ArgusTwin constantly monitors, via radar sensors mounted on both the sides of the spreader, the left and right hand spread fans simultaneously and re-adjusts the electric delivery system independently of each other if necessary.

Top features of ArgusTwin:

ZA-TS mit Argus Twin, Top-Argumente fur das Argus Twin-System

+ The system is ready for operation immediately

+ Positioned directly above the spreading discs
    - the system is located safely between the outer guard tube and the base hopper
    - therefore no areas where moisture, dirt or fertiliser may deposit

+ Constant on-line monitoring of both spread fans

+ Maintains an optimum lateral distribution of the fertiliser even with changeable fertiliser quality
    - Basis for optimum crop management
    - More effective use of the fertiliser

+ The system is also active when border spreading or if a part-width section is switched on or off

+ Automatic slope compensation of the spread pattern by readjustment of the delivery system position

+ Rigidly attached to the spreader: no moving parts – completely maintenance-friendly and free of wear

Automatic delivery system adjustment

Via the ISOBUS terminal, the application rate and any further relevant data for the fertiliser to be spread are entered from the setting chart. For the Argus system, the spreading chart has been updated to include the throwing angle that gives the optimum lateral distribution. Utilising this value, ArgusTwin constantly checks whether the predetermined direction of throw for that fertiliser is in fact being maintained by the spreading discs. When the actual throwing width deviates from the “desired” throwing width due to inconsistencies within the fertiliser, worn spreading vanes, working across slopes or during starting and stopping procedures, the spreader readjusts, on its own, the setting for the delivery system – and that of each side individually. The only pre-condition for its use is the electric delivery system adjustment.

The system is immediately live and operates even when border spreading and if part-width sections are switched off and on. In hilly terrain, Argus even provides slope compensation of the spread pattern via the automatic readjustment of the delivery position of the fertiliser.

While Argus optimises the lateral distribution, the optional weighing system ensures the maintenance of the application rate.
