DistanceControl with 2 sensors or DistanceControl plus with 4 sensors

DistanceControl mit 2 Sensoren (1) Grafik_DistanceControl_UG_d0_20150203

The DistanceControl fully automated boom guidance system with 2 sensors or DistanceControl plus with 4 sensors is possible for the boom variants in conjunction with Profi-fold 1 or Profi-fold 2. 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.
