E-Learning – the new driver training on the PC

The new “E-Learning” internet tool expands Amazone’s service offering on its homepage with a very useful function. “E-Learning” is the interactive driver training system which enables the on-line and off-line operator training of a complex machine via PC or Tablet. This new service provides drivers with the chance to familiarise themselves with a new machine and its operation prior to going out into the field. However, even skilled operators can refresh their knowledge for an improved exploitation of the potential of these machines with just a little investment of time. Initially, the service is available for Amazone EDX maize drills, UF + FT or UX sprayers, along with ZA-TS spreaders and the AMATRON 3 operator terminal. In addition to the benefits for the user, “E-Learning” also provides potential buyers and those interested with a look into how the machine operates.  Importantly, the on-line driver training includes many video clips explaining, via spoken word and simulations, the technology behind the machine. Not only does it provide the driver with the technical peculiarities of the machine, but also how to initially put it into work, what has to be observed during field operation as well as how to remedy possible malfunctions. With this tool, even service technicians are also able to update their knowledge prior to the initial operation.

However, for the optimised handling of the AMATRON 3 operator terminal, the driver can practice via an interactive screen mask which then demonstrates the terminal together with its display and operation keys. Here, not only can the basic functions of AMATRON 3 be familiarised with, but also the operation of the automatic headland- and part-width section control, GPS-Switch and the parallel driving aid, GPS-Track as well. Similar to live operation, the user can understand the various operational steps with the aid of the PC mouse directly on the screen.

Amazone offers “E-Learning” in English, German, French and Russian languages free of charge. “E-Learning” can be found on the homepage www.amazone.co.uk under the “Service” menu and then clicking on the tab “E-Learning”. The only precondition for the system is the latest Flash-Player version.
