ContourControl (1) SwingStop_vertikale_Gestängebewegung_Fremd_d1_170815

ContourControl – reduces those vertical boom movements: The AMAZONE ContourControl active boom guidance is a ground-breaking fully automatic boom guidance system for booms from 21 m working width. This meets the demand for higher precision during application owing to the lower target surface distances even at high forward speeds. ContourControl can be used with Super-L booms in conjunction with either Flex-fold 1 or Flex-fold 2.

The basis of the new boom guidance is the highly-responsive, electro-hydraulic system with either 4 sensors or in, combination with the Flex-fold 2, 2 additional sensors which allow control of any negative geometry.

The benefits of ContourControl:

  1. The goal: the prevention of negative vertical boom movements
  2. The goal: the prevention of negative horizontal boom movements
  3. Ultrasound sensor for ContourControl
  4. Direction of travel
  5. Acceleration sensor for SwingStop
  6. SwingStop ram

The plant protection sector will have to change in the future

The plant protection sector will have to change in the future. Plant protection is an important part of agriculture in securing high yields and optimum quality. Due to the increasing world population, both factors play an enormous role in securing food supply.
