AMAZONE UF mounted crop protection sprayer

Accessories

The DUS pressure recirculation system on the Super-S boom – proven more than 10,000 times

Das Druck-Umlauf-System (DUS)

The AMAZONE DUS pressure recirculation system guarantees the safe circulation within the entire system. When starting the spraying operation all the hoses including the spray lines are filled under pressure in the reverse direction with themixed spray agent. This means the spray lines are always full and immediately ready to use over the entire working width. There is no waiting on the headland.

Every time individual part-width sections are shut off, during the turning operation and during transport, the spray liquid circulates continually thanks to the pressure recirculation system. This reliably prevents deposits, blockages or segregation in the spray lines.

The concentration of the spray agent always remains constant right up to the nozzles, so the start of spraying is carried out without any problems after, for example, a change of ingredients.

During the cleaning operation, fresh water flushes the spray lines out right up to the nozzles without any spraying being necessary. During this cleaning procedure the concentrated spray liquid is returned back to tank via the pressure recirculation system leaving the spray lines clean.

Comfort Pack for the remotely controlled spray agent flow circuit

UF Comfort-Paket

The new option with three functions for all UF models with ISOBUS communication
- Automatic fill stop for controlling, on and off, the suction tap at the desired fill level.
- Automatic agitator shut off at a fill level of less than < 5 % (of the nominal volume) results in small residual volumes.
- Cleaning the spray line, tank and agitator is possible via the ISOBUS terminal.
- No need for the operator to leave the tractor cab.

 

Electric boundary nozzle switching

Elektrische Randdüsenschaltung

Additional nozzle switching:
In order to extend the normal working width, an asymmetrical nozzle can also be switched on. This is particularly useful if the distances between tramlines are not precise enough.

End nozzle switching:
If a one metre buffer zone around the edge of the field needs to remain unsprayed due to distance constraints, end nozzle switching can be used.

Boundary nozzle switching:
For precision border spraying between two sensitive crops, the boundary nozzles can be used to make sure the spray pattern is accurately defined.

AMASET+ control box

AMASET+

The AMASET+ control box is a comfortable solution for user-friendly and environmentally friendly crop protection application. All important spraying functions being controlled remotely from the tractor cab. Within the same tractor gear the spray rate (l/ha) remains constant.

Standard functions:
- Digital pressure indication
- Overall and part width section on/off
- Up to 7 boom part width sections

Manually operated HB valve chest

Handbediente Armatur

The manually operated valve chest enables spraying without any power supply. The main switch, the manual pressure adjustment of three or five part width sections are ergonomically arranged. Thanks to the equal pressure unit the application rate per hectare is maintained when switching part width sections.

Electrically-controlled NG valve chest

UF Gleichdruckarmatur

The NG equal pressure valve chest for the AMASET+ control box is positioned in the centre of the boom. Ultramodern motor valves allow the fast, drip-less on/ off control. Matching the equal pressure valve chest to the nozzle size is quickly and easily carried out via the colour coordinated dials.

Electrically-controlled TG valve chest

Amazone, Anbaufeldspritze UF, Elektrisch fernbediente TG-Armatur

For actuation using either ISOBUS or AMASPRAY+, modern valve chest technology is utilised. The part-width boom sections are switched, on and off, quickly and drip-free via electric motor valves with pressure relief. In all situations the spray rate is exactly and quickly controlled directly via the computer and so negating the need for any mechanical equal pressure control.

Fill port

Amazone, Anbaufeldspritze UF, Option: Befüllanschluss

For filling from a pressurised hose, a fill port with either a Geka or Camlock coupling is available as an option. Using this connection, the fresh water can be simultaneously filled from the left hand side.

conjunction with the multi-function joystick and also just with an ISOBUS terminal..

GPS-Switch for AMATRON 3

GPS-Switch für Amatron 3

This GPS assisted operator terminal system automates the exact control of the machine on the headlands, around the field border and when spraying in wedges. The working width and the arrangement of the part-width sections are taken into account.
The automatic GPS-Switch part-width section control offers precision, comfort and safety: simply select the desired degree of overlap and leave the GPS-Switch in automatic mode. So, even in difficult circumstances, such as wider working widths, limited visibility at dawn or dusk, or in high crops, the job can be mastered. In addition: you save up to 5 % on crop protection agents, whilst at the same time safeguarding the environment and can fully focus on monitoring the sprayer.

GPS-Track for AMATRON 3

GPS-Track für Amatron 3

The GPS-Track parallel driving aid turns out to be an enormous advantage for easy orientation in fields without tramlines or on grassland. It features various track modes, such as A-B line and contour travel and an obstacle function. The bouts are numbered all the way across. The deviation from the true line is shown on the display. Unmistakable steering recommendations help keep you in the track. Also the distance to the next tramline is shown precisely, providing the ideal guide, for example, when locating the correct maize row.

So, depending on the target and the terminal, several possibilities are offered, both for part-area site specific application from a map or using a sensor. You, as the operator, can  decide for yourself on the right system for your conditions and application.

AmaSwitch individual nozzle switching for Super-S2 booms

Amazone, Anbaufeldspritze UF, Einzeldüsenschaltung AmaSwitch für Super-S2-Gestänge

If AmaSwitch is combined with GPS-Switch automatic headland and part-width Section Control, the individual nozzles are automatically switched in 50 cm part-width sections.
The decisive benefit of this individual nozzle switching is the possibility to operate with small part-width sections even more precisely in wedge shaped areas, short work and on the headland. The amount of overlap is significantly reduced on the headland, for instance, by up to 85 % less when compared with conventional Section Control part-width section switching. In this way, depending on field shape, boom width and number of part-width sections, the combination of GPS-Switch and AmaSwitch results in considerable savings of spray agent compared with the usual crop protection techniques used up to now.
The new technology is based on a 3-fold nozzle carrier with electric on/off nozzle switching. In addition to the automatic switching using 50 cm part-width sections, it is possible to configure the amount of part-width sections from choice.
AmaSwitch is a cost-effective alternative for users who do not want to make electric nozzle changeover a priority but, however, want to make use of the advantages of the very precise switching in wedge shaped fields and overlap zones thanks to the 50 cm part-width section control.
Standard equipment with AmaSwitch includes the DUS pro high pressure recirculation system. DUS pro prevents deposits in the spray lines and ensures an even spray agent concentration. Thanks to the pressure recirculation system all the nozzles are ready for operation over the entire boom width. In addition, when switching off individual part-width sections and when turning, the spray agent remains in constant circulation.
In this way deposits, blockages and any potential demixing in the spray line is safely prevented. As a special option, AmaSwitch can also be supplied in combination with LED individual nozzle lighting.

LED boom lighting for Super-S booms

Amazone, Anbaufeldspritze UF, LED-Gestängebeleuchtung für Super-S-Gestänge

For flexible and efficient operation at twilight and in the dark, LED boom lighting is available. Two far-reaching LED work lights, mounted in the middle of the boom, ensure excellent visibility of all the nozzles at a glance.

LED individual nozzle lighting for the Super-S boom

Amazone, Anbaufeldspritze UF, LED-Einzeldüsenbeleuchtung für Super-S-Gestänge

Professional work lighting is today the basis of a flexible, output-increasing solution to operating in twilight and at night. LED individual nozzle lighting picks out each individual spray fan. An absolutely immediate assessment of their operation down to the very last nozzle on the boom can be made.   

Documentation with ASD

Amazone UG Dokumentation mit ASD

Starting from field records the automatic field related documentation (ASD) offers the possibility to exchange, via a blue tooth interface, application plans and actual programmes via AMASTRPRAY+ and AMATRON 3 on-board computers. In this way the documentation is more accurate and simpler and hand written notes are not necessary. 

ASD now enables documentation in conjunction with many major field record database providers in Europe. The ASD interface is available as an open standard for all device and software providers. With ASD, AMAZONE offers a practical, value for money documentation system for all types of farming.

Operator-friendly liquid fertilising

Amazone, Anbaufeldspritze UF, Bedienungsfreundliche Flüssigdüngung

In conjunction with the AMAZONE boom, a separate drag hose kit for risk-free late fertilising is available. The selfcontained aluminium profiles can be attached with a few hand clamps. Stainless steel weights help keep the position of the drag hoses within the crop.

For the coarse droplets distribution of liquid fertiliser AMAZONE offers multi-hole nozzles (3, 5, or 7 hole).

Under-leaf spraying

Lösungen für die erfolgreiche Unterblattspritzung im Gemüse- oder Maisanbau

In connection with the Super-S boom, AMAZONE offers elegant solutions for successful under-leaf spraying when working in vegetables or maize. The Dropleg system from Lechler, for instance, is an easy and robust under-leaf spraying system that hangs freely between the rows and which fulfils professional demands.

Braked roller parking wheels

Rollvorrichtung

With the parking wheels, the sprayer can be moved easily.

Quick coupler system

Schnellkuppelsystem

The quick coupler system and the Tele-Space PTO shaft - available on request - ensure an even faster and simpler attchment to the tractor. All cables and hoses are arranged in a clear, functional manner to avoid any mix ups. 

Front tank & Flow-Control

Fronttank & Flow-Control

The special advantage offered is a more manoeuvrable system from a tractor with a mounted implement compared with trailed sprayers in smaller and more awkward shaped fields and the better behaviour on slopes. But also in the 3,000 litre self-propelled sprayer class, a comfortable tractor with a high-class combination of mounted sprayer and front tank can make an interesting alternative.
