DistanceControl with 2 sensors or DistanceControl plus with 4 sensors

DistanceControl (3) DistanceControl_4_Sensoren_20170106_CMS

AMAZONE offers for Super-L booms, either DistanceControl fully automated boom control with 2 sensors or DistanceControl plus with 4 sensors on the Pantera self-propelled sprayer. In heavily differing crop heights, or in areas with partially lodged corn, it could be that the boom, when equipped with 2 sensors, dips into the crop. In this case equipping the boom with four sensors will prevent this. The sensors are electrically connected in parallel and so it is always the sensor that is closest to the target surface that is actuated.

The driver is able to concentrate on correctly applying the plant protection agent, whilst the computer optimises the boom guidance!


Benefits of the DistanceControl boom guidance:

DistanceControl (1) Distance_Control_1
DistanceControl when equipped with two sensors: Measuring to the crop
DistanceControl (2) Distance_Control_2
DistanceControl when equipped with two sensors: The boom can dip into the crop, for example, where there is lodged corn

  1. Ultra-sound sensors
  2. Angle sensors




The plant protection sector will have to change in the future

The plant protection sector will have to change in the future. Plant protection is an important part of agriculture in securing high yields and optimum quality. Due to the increasing world population, both factors play an enormous role in securing food supply.
