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 Distance- Control plus with 4 sensors. If the crop height varies greatly or there are areas with partially lodged corn, the boom could dip into the crop when equipped with 2 sensors. In this case, equipping the boom with 4 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
  • Automated bilateral boom angling (in combination with Flex-fold 2)

  1. Ultra-sound sensors
  2. Angle sensors
