DistanceControl with 2 sensors or DistanceControl plus with 4 sensors
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:
- Fully automatic boom guidance including height guidance, tilt adjustment and boom lifting on the headland
- Ultra-sound sensors
- Angle sensors
