System Airstar: Sicherer Dosierantrieb – Einfache Einstellung und bequemes Kalibrieren (1) _MG_6478_d1_151005

System Airstar: Reliable metering drive – Simple adjustment and comfortable calibration

1. Electric metering drive: The AD-P comes as standard with electric metering drive and is controlled by AmaTron 4 or an ISOBUS terminal or AmaDrill+. In conjunction with the electric drive, calibration is comfortable and fully automated. The electric drive also offers additional functions such as the pre-metering of the seed in field corners and the increase and decrease of the seed rate during operation. The AD-P can recognise different signal sources for detection of the speed. In addition to the radar sensor, impulse wheel or GPS signal, also the speed signal of the tractor can be utilised. 

2. Quick emptying: the emptying of the seed in the hopper is quickly and simply done via the quick emptying device which is easily accessible and fitted onto the seed hopper.

3. Emptying of residual amounts: for emptying any residual amounts, a slide is opened and the hopper contents emptied into the large calibration tray.

4. Easy exchange of the metering cassettes: the cassettes of the seed metering system can easily be exchanged. This allows the precise and gentle metering of all seed types and seed rates with excellent distribution along the row even at high forward speeds.

Operation and speed signal

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

Metering cassettes for any type of seed

Special metering cassettes for different application rates precisely and gently deliver the seed up to the distributor head. The three metering cassettes supplied as standard cover up to 95 % of all seeds. Additional rollers are available, for instance, for maize or specialist crops. The interchangeable metering cassettes are suitable for the following application rates: fine seeds (approx. < 15 kg/ha), medium sized seeds (approx. < 140 kg/ha), normal seeds (approx. > 140 kg/ha).

7.5 ccm: e.g. for linseed, poppies
20 ccm: e.g. for rape, stubble turnips, lucerne
100 ccm: e.g. for catch crop mixtures
120 ccm: e.g. for catch crops, maize and sunflowers
210 ccm: e.g. for barley, rye, wheat
600 ccm: e.g. for spelt, oats, wheat

Segmented distributor head

The segmented distributor head provides huge flexibility for the pneumatic seed drill. Without any effort asymmetrical tramlines can be carried out without any undesirable seed rate reduction on the other half of the machine.

The segmented distributor head provides electric half-side shut-off and Section Control. The half-side control is located directly inside the distributor head. Stoppers, used for blocking off every second outlet when sowing, for instance, spelt, are available as an option.

The benefits:

  • Electric half-side shut-off
  • Reduction in overlap
  • Minimising dust creation

Variable tramline control

With the aid of the tramline shut-offs, in total up to six seed rows per side can be switched off. The correspondingly wide tramline wheel tracks are suitable for tyre widths up to 1,050 mm on a 15 cm row spacing or 875 mm on a 12.5 cm row spacing depending on the following crop husbandry tractors. In this way AMAZONE takes into account the move towards those crop husbandry tyres getting wider and wider.

Hydraulic blower fan drive

The new high performance blower fan is characterised by its low oil requirement of just 21 l/min at 3,500 rpm and minimum noise levels.

Seed pipe monitoring

Another useful system to assist the driver is the optionally available seed pipe monitoring which detects immediately any blockages down at the coulter and in the tube. Directly behind the distributor head, sensors monitor the seed flow in the seed pipes. Incorrect switch-over of the tramline rhythm is automatically detected by the system. Especially on long working days, the monitoring is an elegant solution to help keep an eye on the working performance.
