Metering | Conveying system

Precis – Sieves in the hopper protect the user

The AMAZONE Precis metering system with integrated hopper inserts ensures minimum residual amounts and even sowing. The seed shaft is driven either mechanically by the land wheel drive or, as an option, electrically via ElectricDrive. 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 adjustable fill level sensor monitors the fill level of the seed hopper. Sight glasses and internal hopper lighting moreover also allow the quick visual check of the fill level.

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 weighing scales provided as standard enable 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 scales, these are safely stored and immediately at hand. With the Cataya Special, the folding bucket and the digital scales are conveniently stored in the hopper lid.

“The Cataya sets new standards in calibration and adjustment. Here, two aspects have to be especially positively emphasised. For all manual adjustments, the already mentioned 19 mm spanner fits everything – calibration and the adjustment of coulter pressure, sowing depth and harrow heights – is comfortably carried out at the left hand machine side – great.“

Mechanical land wheel drive – tried and tested drive technology

The mechanical land wheel drive is a reliable but simple and cost-effective solution for the Cataya Special. The large diameter land wheel ensures uniform, uninterrupted drive for the seed shaft.

Advantages of the mechanical land wheel drive

  • Clear definitive position on the right in the direction of travel ensures a good overview from the cab and permits simple reset in the field corners 
  • Optional control and monitoring via the AmaLog+ in-cab terminal 
  • Facility for deactivation through machine lift-out using the hydraulic top link and land wheel drive 
  • Calibration with the help of the universal tool 
  • Transport holder on the rear 
  • Simple function check 
  • Calibration set included

ElectricDrive electric metering drive

Convenient and precise
The ElectricDrive electric metering drive is available on the left for the Cataya Special, and also on the right, or on both sides, for the Cataya Super. The twin drive system allows for automatic switching of each side separately.

Benefits of ElectricDrive electric metering drive 

  • The drive is optionally available for the left-hand side, for the right-hand side, or for both sides 
  • Easy adjustment of the seed rate from the tractor cab. Also, an alternative, automatically seed rate control on a part-area, site-specific basis via application maps 
  • Easy calibration via the calibration button (standard) or TwinTerminal 
  • Calibration set included 
  • Metering fine seed up to 0.5 kg/ha

Increased operating convenience with the TwinTerminal 3.0

AMAZONE offers the TwinTerminal 3.0 for electric metering drive, in combination with ISOBUS, in order to simplify further the calibration and residue emptying. The TwinTerminal is mounted directly in the SmartCenter instead of the calibration button. This position offers a decisive benefit: the driver can now perform the operation and input the data for the calibration directly on the machine, and no longer has to keep getting on and off the tractor.

The TwinTerminal 3.0 consists of a water and dust proof housing with a 3.2" display and four large keys for actuation.

Working position and speed signals

The electric drive offers multiple options for a speed source as well as the working position signal. In this way, depending on the application, a flexible choice between the different sources is possible.

Tramline control

The tramline control can be used to switch off up to 2 x 5 seed rows, so that a tramline can be easily established. The tramline control is made possible via a counter shaft which drives the tramline seed wheels. If a tramline is being created, the counter shaft is locked and stops the tramline seed wheels freely rotating 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.

Half-side shut-off

Via the half-side shut-off control, asymmetrical tramline rhythms can be created. The half-side control is implemented in the Cataya by means of a centrally divided seed and counter shaft. When the half-side control is activated, the seed and the counter shaft are simply shut off on that side. If the Cataya Super is equipped with the optional twin-sided electric metering drive, the selection of which side is working can be made from the cab.
