Metering | Conveying system


SmartCenter – Centralised and comfortable actuation

To further simplify use for the operator, AMAZONE offers, with the SmartCenter, a very simple and clear layout of the most important adjustments. Centrally, from the left hand side, the metering system can be quickly adjusted and calibrated. Thanks to the calibration button or, as option, also with the TwinTerminal 3.0 in the SmartCenter, calibration can be carried out comfortably from the left hand side. (1) Bottom flap adjustment, (2) Calibration flap adjustment, (3) Calibration button, (4) Calibration trays, (5) Coulter pressure adjustment (only for the Cataya Super), (6) Sowing depth (only for the Cataya Super with TwinTeC)

The electric drive is available, from choice, for the left hand or the right hand side. Also, as an option, a drive for the individual sides is available, so that automatic half-side switching can be realised.

Precis – The new mechanical metering system

The new AMAZONE Precis metering system with integrated discharge funnels ensures minimal residual amounts as well as even sowing. With the new ElectricDrive, the metering system now features electric drive to the seed shaft. Across a wide range of seeds, an outstanding consistency of distribution is ensured. The centralised calibration flap makes for an easy changeover from calibration to drilling. Thanks to the integrated discharge funnels hardly any residual amounts remain in the seed hopper so that even a change of seed can be carried out quickly and conveniently. The conversion from fine to normal seed is possible via the shutter slide. Even an exchange of the seed wheels is, due to the accessibility of the metering system, possible without any problem.

The calibration concept

The calibration trays, directly positioned under the seed hopper, can both be removed from the left hand side via the SmartCenter. Thanks to the two-part calibration trays the decanting into the provided folding bucket is done quickly, simply and comfortably. After the calibration process the calibration trays are simply turned into the storage position with their opening facing downwards. The digital balance provided as standard enables the exact weighing of the calibrated seed. Thanks to the additional storage space in the SmartCenter of Cataya Super for the standardly-supplied equipment, such as the folding bucket and the digital balance, these are safely stored and immediately at hand. At the Cataya Special the folding bucket and the digital balance are conveniently stored in the hopper lid.

ElectricDrive metering drive

As standard, the Cataya features ElectricDrive, an electric metering system. In conjunction with the electric drive, calibration is comfortable and fully automated. The electrical drive provides additional functions, such as, for example, the pre-metering of the seed in the corner of the field as well as the increase and reduction of the seed rate on the move. The Cataya features different signal sources for detection of the speed. In addition to the radar sensor or GPS signal, also the speed signal of the tractor can be utilised.

Operating position and speed signals

The standard equipment level of electric drive offers the possibility to freely choose the signal source for both the speed and also the operating position. In this way, depending on the application, a flexible choice between the different sources is possible.

Tramline control

With the newly designed tramline control, in total up to 2 x 5 seed rows can be switched off, so that the creation of any tramline gap is possible without a problem. The tramline control is made possible via a layshaft which drives the tramline seed wheels. If a tramline is being created, the layshaft is locked which then simultaneously stops the freely rotating tramline seed wheels on the seed shaft. The ability to cope with wider tramline gaps satisfies the use of husbandry tractors with tyre widths of up to 900 mm at 15 cm row spacing or 750 mm at a row spacing of 12.5 cm. Thanks to the two-piece spur gears, the track width and the tramline width can be matched quickly and without a problem.

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.
