Weighing system | Automatic rate control


Unique weighing technology – ProfisPro

Perfect weighing system

With the ProfisPro, AMAZONE introduces a new weighing system, combining maximum comfort with optimised work performance. In addition to its core function where the on-line weighing function regulates the application rate, the weighing signals are used for other functions.

Intelligent technology

A new integrated weigh frame connects the hopper to the weigh frame via four weigh cells. This is completely separate to the chassis. Thus, there are no weight measuring points which are influenced by the traction forces of the tractor. The result is a high frequency and precise on-line-weighing procedure. A tilt sensor additionally compensates for the inclination of the machine on slopes. This signal is also used to register any tendency of the ZG-TS to drift down on a slope and, via the steering axle, to counter-steer the machine back in track.

On-line calibration

The signals produced from the weighing system are used for the on-line calibration and thus enables automatic regulation of the application rate via the metering shutters.

Benefits of on-line calibration:

  • Just enter the spread rate and drive off
  • Reliable measuring values
  • Automatic regulation of the metering shutter slides

Intelligent fill management

ProfisPro is particularly clever with its intelligent fill management during loading. Without the use of an external scale, the system gives precise information about the load condition at all times, thus preventing overloading and empty runs. And so, as a filling aid, or by the continuous measurement of the hopper contents, ProfisPro sets new standards.

Benefits of fill management:

  • Reliable filling aid
  • Reliable fill level measurements even without using an external balance
  • Avoidance of unnecessary empty travelling and residues

Automatic load-dependent braking force control

To determine the load-dependent braking force one also relies on the signal of the new on-line weighing system. With the reliable measuring results, determined by ProfisPro, the optimum braking force for all load ranges can be derived so that the braking effect can be matched very sensitively.

Benefits of load-dependent braking force control:

  • Very comfortable and safe in road travel
  • Maximum safety on the headlands and on slopes

Optimum load distribution

Optimum load distribution

Thanks to the real time measuring via the ProfisPro weighing system, the axle and support loads can be optimally utilised during the filling procedure. This is because during the filling procedure it is possible to see where the load is concentrated and thus prevent either the overloading of the axle or the drawbar.

Filling aid

Operators will especially love the filling aid provided by the work lights and the ProfisPro weighing system. The fill level is indicated by the blinking and illumination of the work lights during the filling procedure. A second person or leaving the tractor cab several times to check is no longer necessary.

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.

Precision in mineral fertiliser application

Amazone offers ever more efficient and precise machines and processes, so that the agricultural sector can retain its competitiveness and future viability and operate more sustainably at the same time.

Calculate that extra profit: With the AMAZONE Border Spreading Calculator

With the AutoTS system, an average yield increase of approximately 17 percent compared with conventional systems can be obtained in the field boundary area.

SmartLearning - EasyCheck

Precise spreading made easy – a digital, mobile test kit for the easy optimisation of the lateral distribution. Instead of using the test trays, as with the normal mobile test kit, the EasyCheck system consists of just 16 lightweight rubber mats and the EasyCheck App for smartphones.
