The benefits thanks to ISOBUS

Amazone - Ihre Vorteile durch ISOBUS

+ All AMAZONE ISOBUS sprayers are certified to UT 2.0 in accordance with the AEF conformity test. This means that these AMAZONE machines can be operated via any terminal which is available on the market that has also been certified according to UT 2.0. In addition, with an ISOBUS compatible SectionControl licence, AMAZONE ISOBUS sprayers can be switched via a third-party ISOBUS terminal.

+ AMAZONE’s AMATRON 3, CCI 100 and AMAPAD terminals and all AMAZONE ISOBUS machines support the AUX AEF functionality. This means, that, for instance, the keys of an existing AUX-N compatible multi-function joystick can be reprogrammed to suit an individual’s needs. So, any function is there, exactly where the operator wants it to be.

Robust, reliable technology

Robuste zuverlässige Technik

The wide profile steel chassis, the compact tank and the robust boom technology all help to provide the necessary stability. All the edges are neatly rounded off and all hoses placed inside the frame.

Running gear at choice

Fahrwerk

The running gear is available with either an un-braked axle, with twin circuit air brakes or with hydraulic brakes. An infinitely track setting from 1.50 to 2.25 m is possible. 40 km/h license on request.

Crop and soil saving driving

Pflanzen- und Bodenschonendes Fahren

Selecting of the right tyres is paramount for soil saving operation. The AMAZONE mudguards can be set to match the tyre size used. The mudguard equipment option includes a large canister holder.

For any linkage the right drawbar

SelfTrail and UniTrail steering systems react directly to the steering action of the tractor. The following sprayer axle oversteers by a little when coming in into the turn. The tracking qualities are completely independent from forward speed.
AutoTrail steering systems are software-controlled and can be calibrated precisely to give near-perfect track following. In work, the steering system can either be manually overridden or switched off via the AmaPilot multi-function joystick

SelfTrail steering system

SelfTrail-Deichsellenkung

A simple, sturdy drawbar is provided that gives continuous track following operation.

UniTrail drawbar steering

UniTrail-Deichsellenkung

The UniTrail steering system can be quickly converted ready for road transport. In the transport position it is possible to drive safely at speeds of up to 40 km/h without a problem. Optionally, a hydraulic drawbar steering is available for when working across slopes.

AutoTrail drawbar steering system

TrailTron-Deichsellenkung

 

AutoTrail steering systems are software controlled and allow the accurate calibration for a true automatic track-following. During operation the steering system can be manually overridden at any time or switched off via the AmaPilot multi-function joystick.

AutoTrail drawbar steering is available for both the straight drawbar and hitch drawbar. A variety of towing eyes offer the solution to all tractor drawbar options.
As an alternative to the AutoTrail automatic steering which is ideal for when working across slopes, a hydraulic drawbar steering is also available for slope correction.

 

 

Proven technology for the most arduous of operations

UG Technik für den Dauereinsatz

1) Robust wide profile steel frame in which all hoses are routed so that they are protected.
2) Compact tank with smooth internal and external walls.
3) Induction bowl with Power-Injector for the induction of large quantities of chemicals and for canister flushing.
4) Large fresh water tank for diluting residual amounts or for cleaning the sprayer, even when the tank is full.
5) Separate hand wash tank (20 litres).
6) Mechanical direct fill level indicator with float and also electronically in the in-cab terminal as standard.
7) Clothing locker for agricultural protective clothing (optional).





Piston diaphragm pumps

Kolbenmembranpumpe

The piston diaphragm pumps are extremely reliable, can run dry and are liquid fertiliser proof. The multi-piston pump specification provides for a simultaneously high suction capacity, an even delivery and a smooth run of the pump.
The pumps are available for delivery rates of 250 l/min. (Special) or 370 l/min (Super). The last  370 l/min. version is a tandem pump where one operational pump and a separate agitation pump work together. The tandem pump is particularly suited for farms with high application ranges.

Filling capacity 400 l/min

Füllleistung 400 l/min

The sprayer can be filled with the help of a suction hose (3") with non-return valve or fill port with C-coupling. Utilising the additional injector that can be activated, means suction rates of up to 400 l/minute can be achieved.

Clearly laid out operator station

Übersichtliche Kommandozentrale

All control elements are logically and unmistakably arranged directly to the front left-hand side of the sprayer. All the working functions can be quickly intuitively understood thus preventing any operator errors.

 

Induction bowl and venturi

Einspülbehälter

Powdery agents and larger amounts of urea can be quickly and safely dissolved with the aid of the wash down ring and be quickly inducted, simultaneously, utilising the filling venturi.    

Hydraulic agitation intensity

Hydraulisches Intensiv-Rührwerk

The intensity of the hydraulic agitation can, steplessly, be reduced down to nothing in order to avoid any foaming of the crop protection agent or to facilitate spraying out the remaining tank contents.
On AMAZONE sprayers, the flushing stream from the selfcleaning pressure filter is used for agitating (1). The pump equipment of the UG Super is suitable for high agitation outputs at low PTO shaft speeds (2).

Fresh water rinse tank with Vario control for rinsing and diluting

Klarwasserbehälter

The fresh water rinse tank ensures that sufficient clear water is always available for rinsing and for diluting residual amounts. If the Vario control is in position "rinsing", suction filter, pump, control valve chest, hose lines and nozzles are cleaned with fresh water. This is possible even when the sprayer tank is still full and so in this way operational problems caused by solidified spray agents are avoided. 

Internal and external cleaning

Reinigungsvorrichtung für Innen

Two powerful rotating nozzles clean the spray agent tank. As an option, the boom can be cleaned in the field with the external wash down kit, where, the spray lance with 10 bar working pressure ensures a good cleaning result.

The benefits thanks to ISOBUS

Amazone ISOBUS-Terminals für Feldspritzen

+ AMAZONE ISOBUS Sprayers are UT 2.0 certified and as such can be operated via any ISOBUS terminal with UT 2.0.
+ All AMAZONE ISOBUS terminals and job computers support the AUX standard enabling the keys to be assigned on any AUS-N compatible multi-function joystick.
+ AMAZONE ISOBUS sprayers can be accessed with any ISOBUS compatible SectionControl licence.

Special characteristics of AMAZONE ISOBUS sprayers:
+ Up to three user profiles and individual interfaces for different drivers can be created.
+ The operation menu can be optimally matched to the differeing numbers of keys on other ISOBUS terminals.
+ Any machine function can be freely positioned in the menu set-up.
+ Complete documentation via TaskController (ISO-XML). As an alternative to documentation via TaskController, the simple recording of field data (worked area, required time and applied rate) is possible. The recorded data can then be captured as a screen shot and then exported via a USB stick.


Simultaneously superbly strong yet superbly light

Amazone Anhängefeldspritze UG, Gleichzeitig superstabil und superleicht

Due to the special profile design AMAZONE sprayer booms are very light yet at the same time very robust. Working widths of 15 to 28 metres allow optimum adaptation to the field sizes and topography on the farm with various folding options. High-grade quality ensures a long operational life even over very high acreages.

Superbly narrow transport width of only 2.40 m

Amazone Super-S2-Gestänge

The Super-S2 boom folds fully automatically in and out via hydraulic rams. In the transport position, the boom sits compactly behind the tank with a transport width of only 2.40 m and a transport height of 3.30 m. With a steel profile up to 140 mm wide with multiple bends, the Super-S2 boom is extremely strong.

Super-S2 boom: firm and steady

All AMAZONE booms come as standard with
+ A spring/shock-absorber package for dampening the vertical roll movements,
+ Spring damping elements with ball suspension for the damping of horizontal yaw movements and
+ Spring elements for the shock-absorbing suspension of the entire boom.

Likewise, the standard hydraulic height adjustment and height indictation skid produce an exact longitudinal and lateral distribution of the spray liquid.

Maintenance-free and with a long service life

Gestänge-Gelenk

The decades of experience in boom design pay off: The conical hinge pin is the intelligent centre of a well thoughtout boom philosophy!
The boom pivots self-adjust against any play on the conical hinge pins and that ensures for the user an optimised boom function even after many years.
The standard use of stainless steel, the automotive-industry standard, cathodic dip painting process and the targeted use of plastics and aluminium are the perfect guarantee of a long service life. Exclusively from AMAZONE: All hydraulic connectors are always made from stainless steel!

Super- L1 boom for the UG

Amazone Anhängefeldspritze UG, Super-L1-Gestänge für die UG

AMAZONE offers a side folding Super-L1 boom for the UG trailed sprayers. The boom is available in boom widths from 21 up to 28 metres. This means now a choice of the vertical-folding Super-S2 boom or the side- folding Super-L.

The product portfolio includes a three-section folding boom option in widths of 21 m, 24 m, 27 m, and 28 m.   

Flexibility thanks to the hydraulic boom folding permutations

Standard folding
All boom options are folded fully hydraulically by oversized hydraulic cylinders.

Hydraulic tilt adjustment
On sloping terrain and with large working widths, the additional hydraulic tilt adjustment with its in-cab tilt display is useful. 

Pre-select folding:
One-sided boom folding is possible through either an AMASPRAY+ or ISOBUS terminal using the tractor spool valves.
The high level of flexibility offered by the pre-select folding function enables all part width sections to be folded individually. Both the left and right-hand sides can be folded in separately and independently of each other in order to adapt to any circumstances in your fields.

Profi-fold:
Profi-fold is the electro-hydraulic actuation of the boom by means of a continual oil circuit. In this way, the functions of height control, folding out/in, one-sided independent folding and tilt adjustment (Profi 1) are easily controlled via the ISOBUS terminal or the multi-function joystick. Additional boom tip angling is possible via Profi-fold 2.

DistanceControl with 2 sensors or DistanceControl plus with 4 sensors::
By combining each boom option with either Profi-fold 1 (Super-S2 and Super-L1) or Profi-fold 2 (Super-S2) then the fully automatic boom guidance system DistanceControl with 2 or DistanceControl plus with 4 sensors can be added. 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.

 

Less drift also at higher wind speeds

Weniger Abdrift auch bei höheren Windgeschwindigkeiten

With the air-assisted injector nozzles, crop protection agents can be applied with very little drift. They are
universally usable in all crops and all classifications. Because of the coarse droplet application, these nozzles can also be used in higher wind speeds. Nozzle protection tubes on the outer sections, or, if desired, over the entire boom working width, ensure protection of the nozzles.
AMAZONE offers the agricultural sector a wide range of nozzles from agrotop, Lechler and TeeJet.

Single and multiple nozzle bodies

Amazone Pflanzenschutzspritze UX, Einfach- und Mehrfach-Düsenkörper

The nozzle bodies with integrated diaphragm non-return anti-drip valves fit up into the boom profiles reliably preventing any dripping at the nozzle. Self-adjusting bayonet fixings ensure a tool-less quick nozzle change. The triple or quad  nozzle bodies are suited to frequent nozzle changes due to different applications and crops. Nozzle protection tubes, as standard on the outer sections, or, if desired, over the entire boom working width, ensures protection for long injector nozzles and multiple nozzle bodies.

Injector nozzles (ID, TTI) have a relatively coarse droplet spectrum and are particularly versatile with regard to their field of application. A pressure range of 2 to 8 bar is possible.

If coverage quality is at the foreground of the application, the use of standard or anti-drift fine droplet nozzles, such as XR or AD, is recommended. Special care is required here due to the tendency to drift above 3 bar.

A good compromise is provided by the modern ID-K or Airmix compact injector nozzles. These have relatively little drift, but do not have too coarse a droplet spectrum and are operated at 2 to 4 bar.

When it comes to special coverage qualities the double flat fan nozzle is an interesting alternative. The AVI Twin from agrotop also produces droplets that are not too fine.

The split spray pattern ensures a more even deposit on the front and back of the plant and and is an interesting alternative in many applications.

For speeds greater than 10 km /h, the TD HiSpeed nozzle with its asymmetrical spraying angle is becoming a new industry trend.
