Top features of ArgusTwin:

+ The system is ready for operation immediately + Positioned directly above the spreading discs - the system is located safely between the outer guard tube and the base hopper - therefore no areas where moisture, dirt or fertiliser may deposit + Constant on-line monitoring of both spread fans + Maintains an optimum lateral distribution of the fertiliser even with changeable fertiliser quality - Basis for optimum crop management - More effective use of the fertiliser + The system is also active when border spreading or if a part-width section is switched on or off + Automatic slope compensation of the spread pattern by readjustment of the delivery system position + Rigidly attached to the spreader: no moving parts – completely maintenance-friendly and free of wear

ArgusTwin – Automatic adjustment to the optimum lateral distribution

Via the constantly working on-line monitoring and readjustment of the delivery system, the ArgusTwin system ensures an optimum lateral distribution of the fertiliser. This leads to a more effective fertiliser use and forms the basis for optimum crop management. The Argus system, which checks the spread fan and automatically regulates the lateral distribution, is based on radar technology that is independent of dust and pollution and thus provides reliable results in practice. ArgusTwin constantly monitors, via radar sensors mounted on both the sides of the spreader, the left and right hand spread fans simultaneously and re-adjusts the electric delivery system independently of each other if necessary.

Automatic delivery system adjustment

Via the ISOBUS terminal, the application rate and any further relevant data for the fertiliser to be spread are entered from the setting chart. For the Argus system, the spreading chart has been updated to include the throwing angle that gives the optimum lateral distribution. Utilising this value, ArgusTwin constantly checks whether the predetermined direction of throw for that fertiliser is in fact being maintained by the spreading discs. When the actual throwing width deviates from the “desired” throwing width due to inconsistencies within the fertiliser, worn spreading vanes, working across slopes or during starting and stopping procedures, the spreader readjusts, on its own, the setting for the delivery system – and that of each side individually. The only pre-condition for its use is the electric delivery system adjustment. The system is immediately live and operates even when border spreading and if part-width sections are switched off and on. In hilly terrain, Argus even provides slope compensation of the spread pattern via the automatic readjustment of the delivery position of the fertiliser. While Argus optimises the lateral distribution, the optional weighing system ensures the maintenance of the application rate.

WindControl for areas where wind is always a problem

In areas that are particularly windy, AMAZONE now offers WindControl (in accordance with Prof. Dr. Karl Wild, HTW Dresden) as a supplement to the ArgusTwin system. Via WindControl, the influence of wind on the spread pattern can also be constantly monitored and automatically compensated for. Mounted on the machine, a high frequency measuring wind sensor, registers both the wind speed and also the direction of wind. According to this data, the job computer then calculates, in conjunction with the information from ArgusTwin, any new settings for the delivery system and the spreading disc speed which are then automatically acted upon. For side winds, the disc speed to the windward side is increased and the delivery system advanced whereas, at the same time, the disc speed on the leeward side is reduced and the delivery system retarded. With the aid of WindControl, larger time windows are created for spreading under the influence of wind. Apart from all the important fertiliser spreader parameters, the user additionally always has, in view, the real-time direction of the wind, the force of wind and if the wind is gusting. In addition, in heavy winds, when the system is no longer able to compensate for, or when the wind gusts are too frequent, WindControl sends an automatic alarm to the driver.

Low-level sensors

When spreading on slopes or when border spreading it can happen that one hopper tip is emptied quicker than the other. In order to check each outlet apertures individually, AMAZONE therefore additionally offers low level hopper sensors. With a premature emptying of one side, the relevant hopper tip is indicated in red in the operator terminal so that the driver is warned early enough.

Tilt sensor for heavily undulating terrain

With the Profis, possible changes in the centre of gravity are taken into account during the measuring procedure whilst on the move via the tilt sensing technology: the two-dimensional tilt sensor which records the angle, both to the front and the rear and to the left and right hand side, corrects the measuring inaccuracies which might arise when driving up and down hill or that might occur when driving on sloping ground.

FlowCheck – for monitoring the spreader aperture

With FlowCheck, AMAZONE offers a system that continually monitors the shutter apertures against blockage or should they run empty. Whereas FlowCheck ensures that the application rate is the same on both sides or, in case of any deviation, informs the driver of a potential error. The overall application rate is monitored and regulated via the weighing system. In addition, the driver is always informed via the weigh-cells of the actual fill level in the hopper.

EasyCheck – Precise spreading made easy!

Digital, mobile test kit for the simple optimisation of lateral distribution

Instead of the test trays found in the normal mobile test kit, the EasyCheck System consists of only 16 lightweight rubber collecting mats and the EasyCheck App for smartphones. The collecting mats are positioned at specific distances away from the tramline. The corresponding tramlines are then spread and the mats with the collected fertiliser granules are photographed via a smartphone. The App now automatically compares how much fertiliser has been collected on the individual test mats and puts the results of the individual rows into an average. If the spreading result is not ideal, the App proposes an appropriate correction for the adjustment of the respective fertiliser spreader.

Spreader Application Center: Exemplary – for more than 25 years

The settings are crucial!

With the introduction of Spreader Application Center, AMAZONE further expanded its level of customer service. In addition to the already established fertiliser laboratory and spreading hall, the Spreader Application Center now also includes the areas of “Test and Training“, “Data Management“ and the related “Knowledge Transfer”.

The last two areas are a necessary restructuring in response to the increasing globalisation and digitalisation of agriculture. The objective of the Spreader Application Center is to provide the customer with an even better service in regard to spreading fertiliser.

WindControl - Calm conditions at the touch of a button

The effect of the wind on the spread pattern can be permanently monitored and automatically compensated for by WindControl. A high-frequency wind sensor mounted on the machine records both the wind speed and the wind direction and transmits this information to the job computer.
