The DUS pressure recirculation system on the Super-S boom – proven more than 10,000 times
The AMAZONE DUS pressure recirculation system guarantees the safe circulation within the entire system. When starting the spraying operation all the hoses including the spray lines are filled under pressure in the reverse direction with themixed spray agent. This means the spray lines are always full and immediately ready to use over the entire working width. There is no waiting on the headland.
Every time individual part-width sections are shut off, during the turning operation and during transport, the spray liquid circulates continually thanks to the pressure recirculation system. This reliably prevents deposits, blockages or segregation in the spray lines.
The concentration of the spray agent always remains constant right up to the nozzles, so the start of spraying is carried out without any problems after, for example, a change of ingredients.
During the cleaning operation, fresh water flushes the spray lines out right up to the nozzles without any spraying being necessary. During this cleaning procedure the concentrated spray liquid is returned back to tank via the pressure recirculation system leaving the spray lines clean.

Comfort Pack for the remotely controlled spray agent flow circuit
The new option with three functions for all UF models with ISOBUS communication
– Automatic fill stop for controlling, on and off, the suction tap at the desired fill level.
– Automatic agitator shut off at a fill level of less than < 5 % (of the nominal volume) results in small residual volumes.
– Cleaning the spray line, tank and agitator is possible via the ISOBUS terminal.
– No need for the operator to leave the tractor cab.

Electric boundary nozzle switching
Additional nozzle switching:
In order to extend the normal working width, an asymmetrical nozzle can also be switched on. This is particularly useful if the distances between tramlines are not precise enough.

End nozzle switching:
If a one metre buffer zone around the edge of the field needs to remain unsprayed due to distance constraints, end nozzle switching can be used.

Boundary nozzle switching:
For precision border spraying between two sensitive crops, the boundary nozzles can be used to make sure the spray pattern is accurately defined.

AMASET+ control box
The AMASET+ control box is a comfortable solution for user-friendly and environmentally friendly crop protection application. All important spraying functions being controlled remotely from the tractor cab. Within the same tractor gear the spray rate (l/ha) remains constant.
Standard functions:
– Digital pressure indication
– Overall and part width section on/off
– Up to 7 boom part width sections
– Electric pressure adjustment
– Display of boom position and lock status
Optional functions:
– Pre-select fold for one side boom reduction
– End- or boundary nozzle on/off control for the Super-S boom (alternatively to pre-select folding)
– Fold or tilt via 1 double acting control valve (electric changeover unit)

Manually operated HB valve chest
The manually operated valve chest enables spraying without any power supply. The main switch, the manual pressure adjustment of three or five part width sections are ergonomically arranged. Thanks to the equal pressure unit the application rate per hectare is maintained when switching part width sections.

Electrically-controlled NG valve chest
The NG equal pressure valve chest for the AMASET+ control box is positioned in the centre of the boom. Ultramodern motor valves allow the fast, drip-less on/ off control. Matching the equal pressure valve chest to the nozzle size is quickly and easily carried out via the colour coordinated dials.

Electrically-controlled TG valve chest
For actuation using either ISOBUS or AMASPRAY+, modern valve chest technology is utilised. The part-width boom sections are switched, on and off, quickly and drip-free via electric motor valves with pressure relief. In all situations the spray rate is exactly and quickly controlled directly via the computer and so negating the need for any mechanical equal pressure control.

Fill port
For filling from a pressurised hose, a fill port with either a Geka or Camlock coupling is available as an option. Using this connection, the fresh water can be simultaneously filled from the left hand side.

AMASPRAY+ operator terminal
AMASPRAY+ enables the simple yet fully automatic regulation. Switches, integrated into the operator terminal, make possible the isolation of 5, 7 or 9 boom part-width sections. AMASPRAY+ has digital pressure indication and digital tank level indication. It registers both, the quantity sprayed and the area worked. The actuation of the hydraulic functions though is carried out via the tractor control valves. AMASPRAY+ also visually indicates boom tilt and locking. As an option, AMASPRAY+ enables one sided folding of the boom or alternatively the access to the boundary nozzle spraying systems.
The AMASPRAY+ operator terminal with serial Interface can also be used for the automatic documentation (ASD) and part area site-specific application.

AMACLICK
Special crops and bed work often require the on/off switching of the individual part-width sections in the middle of the boom. For this, the AMACLICK is an ergonomic controller which can be operated both in
conjunction with the multi-function joystick and also just with an ISOBUS terminal..

GPS-Switch for AMATRON 3
This GPS assisted operator terminal system automates the exact control of the machine on the headlands, around the field border and when spraying in wedges. The working width and the arrangement of the part-width sections are taken into account.
The automatic GPS-Switch part-width section control offers precision, comfort and safety: simply select the desired degree of overlap and leave the GPS-Switch in automatic mode. So, even in difficult circumstances, such as wider working widths, limited visibility at dawn or dusk, or in high crops, the job can be mastered. In addition: you save up to 5 % on crop protection agents, whilst at the same time safeguarding the environment and can fully focus on monitoring the sprayer.

GPS-Track for AMATRON 3
The GPS-Track parallel driving aid turns out to be an enormous advantage for easy orientation in fields without tramlines or on grassland. It features various track modes, such as A-B line and contour travel and an obstacle function. The bouts are numbered all the way across. The deviation from the true line is shown on the display. Unmistakable steering recommendations help keep you in the track. Also the distance to the next tramline is shown precisely, providing the ideal guide, for example, when locating the correct maize row.

External lightbar for GPS Track parallel guidance system
As a possibility, an external lightbar display is available which can be easili used in conjunction with GPS-Track. The external lightbar can be freely positioned anywhere in the cab.

GPS-Maps for Amatron 3
The additional module GPS-Maps enables GPS-based processing of application maps in a shape file format. Both in AMABUS, and also in ISOBUS mode.
The direct application rate can be used or the amount of spray agent. With AMATRON 3, the spray rates can still be adapted.
Task Controller is available as standard and enables the processing of application maps in ISO-MXL format, both in AMABUS and also in ISOBUS mode, even without GPS Maps.

CCI 100 terminal
The CCI ISOBUS terminal from AMAZONE is the result of the cooperation with several other manufacturers of agricultural machinery who are joint participants in the Competence Center ISOBUS e.V (CCI). With CCI, AMAZONE and its partners have laid the foundation to introduce ISOBUS into practice. The CCI is the basis to convert all AMAZONE machinery and implements successively to the ISOBUS standard.
+ The bright 8.4″ display with its high screen resolution and ambient light sensor matches the brightness automatically to the light conditions. This avoids the driver in twilight or at night being blinded by too bright a display.

+ The input is carried out from choice via the operator friendly touch screen or via the soft keys.

+ Fatigue-free operation at night is assisted by the back-lighting of the keys which are also connected with the light sensor.

+ The proven AMAZONE one-handed operation is still possible because the function of the ”soft keys“ can be simply mirrored.

+ For intuitive menu guidance and the convenient input of values and text, the terminal is provided with a high-quality touch screen.

+ For the direct quick, input and adjustment of the input values, a scroll wheel with actuating function is ergonomically integrated in the housing.
The terminal includes the following functions:
+ ISOBUS machine operation
+ Tractor ECU function (Interface for Speed, PTO shaft and lower link position)

AMAPAD – the new dimension in control and monitoring
With the AMAPAD operator terminal, AMAZONE offers an entirely new and high-class solution for GPS application such as automated GPS based part-width section control and Precision Farming applications.
AMAPAD features an especially ergonomic, 12.1” touch screen. With the unique “Mini-View” concept, applications that do not need to be actuated but which, however, need to be monitored, are clearly shown at the side. If needs be, these can be enlarged by “finger tip“ widening. The possibility also exists to customise the Display, a feature which rounds off the exceptional layout of this operator terminal.
In addition to GPS-Switch pro part-width section control, a high-quality professional manual light bar guidance system is also installed as standard. GPS-Track can also be upgraded to an automated steering system.

The terminal includes the following functions:
– ISOBUS implement actuation

– GPS output
The characteristics of AMAPAD:
+ screen made from toughened glass
+ housing made from impact-proof plastic
+ extra-narrow rim for maximum visibility
+ flush finish, no penetration of dust / humidity

Other ISOBUS terminals
e. g. Fendt Vario terminal, John Deere GreenStar, Müller COMFORT terminal
Important information
Please note that when working with other ISOBUS terminals, additional SectionControl software, for example, from the tractor manufacturer, is normally necessary. This is not usually included in the standard version of other ISOBUS terminals.
2-terminal solution
A twin-terminal solution with the simultaneous use of a tractor ISOBUS terminal and AMATRON 3 or CCI 100 is recommended if the tractor terminal does not support the Section Control function or if you intend to use the sprayer via AMATRON 3 or CCI 100 and a separate screen.

Future proof technology
The serial interface (RS232) that enables use to be made of sensor technology (for example,Yara-N-Sensor) or different GPS-Terminals is integrated, as standard, into the comprehensive equipment level provided by AMATRON 3 and AMASPRAY+. So, depending on the target and the terminal, several possibilities are offered, both for part-area site specific application from a map or using a sensor. You, as the operator, can  decide for yourself on the right system for your conditions and application.

AmaSwitch individual nozzle switching for Super-S2 booms
If AmaSwitch is combined with GPS-Switch automatic headland and part-width Section Control, the individual nozzles are automatically switched in 50 cm part-width sections.
The decisive benefit of this individual nozzle switching is the possibility to operate with small part-width sections even more precisely in wedge shaped areas, short work and on the headland. The amount of overlap is significantly reduced on the headland, for instance, by up to 85 % less when compared with conventional Section Control part-width section switching. In this way, depending on field shape, boom width and number of part-width sections, the combination of GPS-Switch and AmaSwitch results in considerable savings of spray agent compared with the usual crop protection techniques used up to now.
The new technology is based on a 3-fold nozzle carrier with electric on/off nozzle switching. In addition to the automatic switching using 50 cm part-width sections, it is possible to configure the amount of part-width sections from choice.
AmaSwitch is a cost-effective alternative for users who do not want to make electric nozzle changeover a priority but, however, want to make use of the advantages of the very precise switching in wedge shaped fields and overlap zones thanks to the 50 cm part-width section control.
Standard equipment with AmaSwitch includes the DUS pro high pressure recirculation system. DUS pro prevents deposits in the spray lines and ensures an even spray agent concentration. Thanks to the pressure recirculation system all the nozzles are ready for operation over the entire boom width. In addition, when switching off individual part-width sections and when turning, the spray agent remains in constant circulation.
In this way deposits, blockages and any potential demixing in the spray line is safely prevented. As a special option, AmaSwitch can also be supplied in combination with LED individual nozzle lighting.

LED boom lighting for Super-S booms
For flexible and efficient operation at twilight and in the dark, LED boom lighting is available. Two far-reaching LED work lights, mounted in the middle of the boom, ensure excellent visibility of all the nozzles at a glance.

LED individual nozzle lighting for the Super-S boom
Professional work lighting is today the basis of a flexible, output-increasing solution to operating in twilight and at night. Illumination of the spray fans ensures complete control of the nozzle function at just one glance.
LED individual nozzle lighting picks out each individual spray fan. An absolutely immediate assessment of their operation down to the very last nozzle on the boom can be made.

Documentation with ASD
Starting from field records the automatic field related documentation (ASD) offers the possibility to exchange, via a blue toogh interface, application plans and actual programmes via AMASTRPRAY+ and AMATRON 3 on-board computers. In this way the documentation is more accurate and simpler and hand written notes are not necessary.

Today ASD allows documentation with many important field record software providers in Europe and to promote further accessibility the ASD interface is available as an open standard for all implement and software suppliers. With ASD AMAZONE offers a practical, value for money documentation system for all types of farming.

Operator friendly – liquid fertilising
In conjunction with the AMAZONE boom, a separate drag hose kit for risk-free late fertilising is available. The selfcontained aluminium profiles can be attached with a few hand clamps. Stainless steel weights help keep the position of the drag hoses within the crop.
For the coarse droplets distribution of liquid fertiliser AMAZONE offers multi-hole nozzles (3, 5, or 7 hole).

Solutions for the under-leaf spraying
In conjunction with the Super-S boom AMAZONE offers an elegant solution for the successful under-leaf spraying in vegetable and maize crops. The Dropleg system from Lechler is a free swinging, underleaf spraying device that works across the rows and is an example of an easy and robust solution that fulfils the most professional of demands.

Braked roller parking wheels
With the parking wheels, the sprayer can be moved easily.

Quick coupler system
The quick coupler system and the Tele-Space PTO shaft – available on request – ensure an even faster and simpler attchment to the tractor. All cables and hoses are arranged in a clear, functional manner to avoid any mix ups.

Front tank & Flow-Control
The special advantage offered is a more manoeuvrable system from a tractor with a mounted implement compared with trailed sprayers in smaller and more awkward shaped fields and the better behaviour on slopes. But also in the 3,000 litre self-propelled sprayer class, a comfortable tractor with a high-class combination of mounted sprayer and front tank can make an interesting alternative.

FT Crop Protection Sprayer

Overview

Via the FT front tank, the tank volume of the UF mounted sprayer can be very simply increased by 1,000 l. Thanks to the optional FlowControl System and the compact design the UF front tank is the ideal solution for increasing the overall capacity of the UF.

Details

The top benefits
+ FlowControl intelligent fill level management – for optimum weight distribution
+ Improved driving stability on slopes due to the intelligent loading of the front axle
+ Very compact design thanks to front linkage – better manoeuvrability in the field and for a safer road transport.
The special advantages offered of more manoeuvrable tractors with a mounted implement compared with trailed sprayers in smaller and more awkward shaped fields as well as the better behaviour on slopes are the major arguments for the front tank solution.  However, even in the 3,000 litre self-propelled class a
comfortable tractor in combination with a high-class mounted sprayer and front tank is an interesting alternative.

The advantages of the front tank
Advantages over trailed sprayers
– Compact unit
– Less side crabbing on side slopes
– Optimum ballasting of the front axle results in a smooth travelling behaviour in sloping terrain
– Faster to back into corners on the headland
– Easy manoeuvre in smaller and in wedge shaped fields
– Compact tansport on narrow country lanes and along roads
– The front tank simultaneously serves as front weight ensuring an optimum balance
– Reduction of soil compaction
– Price advantage
Advantages as against self-propelled
– Hude advantage on price
– Up to 50 km/h permitted speed on the road
– 80 km/h permitted speed with fast tractors
– Tractor can also be used for other operations
The front tank acts both as an extension of the tank volume and also as a front weight.

Liquid fertilising – Safe and user friendly
For coarse droplet distribution of liquid fertiliser, AMAZONE offers a variety of special nozzles.
In conjunction with the Super-S2 boom, separate drag hose equipment for risk-free late top fertilising is available. The self-contained aluminium profiles can be attached with a few hand clamps. Drag hoses offer a risk-free late top dressing with liquid fertiliser and stainless steel weights help keep the position of the drag hoses within the crop.

Comfort Pack for ISOBUS terminals
The AMAZONE Comfort-Pack controls the most important functions of the liquid system.
+ Automatic fill stop
+ Regulation of the agitation
+ Automatic, in-cab remote cleaning.
The intensity of the hydraulic agitator is, depending on the fill level, reduced until completely shut off to prevent foaming of the crop protection agent or to minimise the residual spray volumes. On AMAZONE crop protection sprayers the un-sprayed plant protection agent is delivered back via the return flow into the suction system. In this way any unintended dilution of the spray liquid is prevented. 370 l/min min agitation capacity is available to achieve a perfect result even with difficult tank mixes and high concentrations. The two internal cleaning nozzles provide the best cleaning job inside the tank. The Comfort-Pack automatically ensures that the agitation will be rinsed.
Minute final residual volumes of less than 20 litres and the large fresh water contents ensure a very effective cleaning procedure whilst still in the field.

Electric boundary nozzle switching
Additional nozzle switching:
In order to extend the normal working width, an asymmetrical nozzle can also be switched on. This is particularly useful if the distances between tramlines are not precise enough.

End nozzle switching:
If a one metre buffer zone around the edge of the field needs to remain unsprayed due to distance constraints, end nozzle switching can be used.

In addition: you save up to 5 % on crop protection agents, whilst at the same time safeguarding the environment and can fully focus on monitoring the sprayer.

GPS-Track for AMATRON 3
The GPS-Track parallel driving aid turns out to be an enormous advantage for easy orientation in fields without tramlines or on grassland. It features various track modes, such as A-B line and contour travel and an obstacle function. The bouts are numbered all the way across. The deviation from the true line is shown on the display. Unmistakable steering recommendations help keep you in the track. Also the distance to the next tramline is shown precisely, providing the ideal guide, for example, when locating the correct maize row.

External lightbar for GPS Track parallel guidance system
As a possibility, an external lightbar display is available which can be easili used in conjunction with GPS-Track. The external lightbar can be freely positioned anywhere in the cab.

GPS-Maps for Amatron 3
The additional module GPS-Maps enables GPS-based processing of application maps in a shape file format. Both in AMABUS, and also in ISOBUS mode.
The direct application rate can be used or the amount of spray agent. With AMATRON 3, the spray rates can still be adapted.
Task Controller is available as standard and enables the processing of application maps in ISO-MXL format, both in AMABUS and also in ISOBUS mode, even without GPS Maps.

Future oriented technology
For the automatic variation of the application rate UG crop protection sprayers can be accessed by many external TPS terminals. One example is for the part area site-specific application of growth regulator in cereals using the YARA N-Sensor.So, depending on the target and the terminal, several possibilities are offered, both for part-area site specific application from a map or using a sensor. You, as the operator can  decide for yourself on the right system for your conditions and application

Documentation with ASD
Starting from field records the automatic field related documentation (ASD) offers the possibility to exchange, via a blue toogh interface, application plans and actual programmes via AMASTRPRAY+ and AMATRON 3 on-board computers. In this way the documentation is more accurate and simpler and hand written notes are not necessary.

Today ASD allows documentation with many important field record software providers in Europe and to promote further accessibility the ASD interface is available as an open standard for all implement and software suppliers. With ASD AMAZONE offers a practical, value for money documentation system for all types of farming.

Camera system to the rear of the UG trailed sprayer
The optionally available camera system mainly serves for safety when manoeuvring. This is ensured even in rain, twilight or in darkness via infrared LEDs and a heated lens. The high resolution, antiglare monitor is backlit and can also display two cameras at once.
As an alternative, pictures from the camera can also be displayed on the CCI ISOBUS terminal via the CCI Cam camera function.

LED boom lighting for Super S2 booms
For flexible and efficient operation at twilight and in the dark, LED boom lighting is available. Two far-reaching LED work lights, mounted in the middle of the boom, ensure excellent visibility of all the nozzles at a glance.

LED individual nozzle lighting for Super-L1 and Super-S2 booms
Professional work lighting is today the basis of a flexible, output-increasing solution to operating in twilight and at night. Illumination of the spray fans ensures complete control of the nozzle function at just one glance.

Accessories

AutoTrail draw bar steering
For the UX 3200 and UX 4200, in working widths up to 28 m, there is the option of AutoTrail drawbar steering when working on level ground. Alternatively, for the steering drawbar, there is hydraulic
drawbar control that is usable, for instance, when turning in row crops. In the transport position 40 km/h on the road can be achieved non-steered.

Slope compensation for AutoTrail
As an option, AutoTrail steering can now also be equipped with a tilt sensor for fully automatic slope compensation. This functions with both axle steering and drawbar steering. As the steering angle, depending on severity of the terrain, has to be possibly adjusted, the intensity of the setting can be altered at any time via the joystick. One particular help offered by AutoTrail is that, in and around tight yards, the drawbar steering can also be released when the booms are folded in.

UniTrail axle steering
UniTrail axle steering offers an excellent level of operational comfort with its very simple operation. Without needing electronics or a continuous oil circulation, the axle is very simply mechanically steered – and even manual hillside correction is built in. The steering system is directly connected with regard to the steering action and oversteers a little when coming into the curve. The UniTrail steering system can be isolated from the tractor cab for transport, allowing comfortable and safe road transport at speeds of up to 40 km/h.

AutoTrail axle steering system
AutoTrail axle steering offers the driver the highest level of comfort due to the elegant control via the multi-function joystick AmaPilot. The sophisticated software provides an intelligent, truetrack following steering operation and can be simply calibrated for each tractor type. The AutoTrail steering can be activated at any time and can be overridden for manual correction when working on side hills. Road Transport speeds of up to 50 km/h are possible when the steering is deactivated.

Trailer towing eyes
The UX field sprayer can be equipped with a clevis trailer coupling which is TÜV certified to tow up to a maximum of 12 t at 50 km/h.

Electrically-controlled TG valve chest
For actuation using either ISOBUS or AMASPRAY+, modern valve chest technology is utilised. The part-width boom sections are switched, on and off, quickly and drip-free via electric motor valves with pressure relief.
In all situations the spray rate is exactly and quickly controlled directly via the computer and so negating the need for any mechanical equal pressure control.

More spraying comfort with ProfiClick
The ProfiClick switchbox offers the simple and precise actuation of all hydraulic functions of the booms and steering with AMAZONE crop protection implements.
It is available in combination with the electro-hydraulic pack “Profi-fold 1” for the entire crop protection sprayer product range from AMAZONE. All the operational functions of the ProfiClick switchbox are ergonomically arranged and directly linked with a function. The potentiometer for the re-adjustment of boom tilt or for the automatic steering of a trailed sprayer can be controlled on the move without looking thanks to the centre position via a detent function. So the driver can concentrate perfectly on driving.

The ProfiClick switchbox for actuating the hydraulic functions of an AMAZONE sprayer can be combined with AMASPRAY+, AMATRON 3 or with any other ISOBUS terminal. Thus it offers a favourable and comfortable control of the hydraulic functions via an oil circuit. On the tractor, only one single acting
spool valve with a pressure-free return flow is required.

ProfiClick is available for UF, UG and UX without steering and the UG with drawbar steering or for a UX with axle steering.

AMATRON 3 – the terminal for all plant protection functions
The AMATRON 3 operator terminal allows the fully automatic regulation of the pre-set application rate (l/ha). Rate changes are possible in pre-selected % steps.
Due to its clear, simple and logical handling and its illuminated keys, this terminal is especially operator-friendly. For monitoring the system a high contrast and low reflection display has been installed. The very compact shape of the terminal requires little space in the tractor cab.
By using two flow meters, the application rate is extremely precisely maintained, particularly at low spray rates.

GPS-Switch for AMATRON 3
This GPS assisted operator terminal system automates the exact control of the machine on the headlands, around the field border and when spraying in wedges. The working width and the arrangement of the part-width sections are taken into account.
The automatic GPS-Switch part-width section control offers precision, comfort and safety: simply select the desired degree of overlap and leave the GPS-Switch in automatic mode. So, even in difficult circumstances, such as wider working widths, limited visibility at dawn or dusk, or in high crops, the job can be mastered.

Comfort-Pack for ISOBUS terminals
The AMAZONE Comfort Pack controls the most important functions of the liquid system.

– Automatic fill stop
– Regulation of the agitation plus agitator switch off for the UX Super
– Agitator Switch off for the UX Special
– Automatic in-cab remote cleaning
The intensity of the hydraulic agitator is, depending on the fill level, reduced until completely shut off to prevent foaming of the crop protection agent or to minimise the residual spray volumes. On AMAZONE crop protection sprayers the un-sprayed plant protection agent is delivered back via the return flow into the suction system. In this way, any unintended dilution of the spray agent is prevented.
500 l/min agitation capacity is available to achieve a perfect result even with difficult tank mixes and high concentrations. The seven sequentially switched internal cleaning nozzles provide the best cleaning job inside the tank. The Comfort-Pack automatically ensures that the agitation will be rinsed.
Minute final residual volumes of less than 20 litres and the large fresh water contents ensure a very effective cleaning procedure whilst still in the field.

Even better with Profi-fold!
Profi-fold – flexible and comfortable.
All the hydraulic functions can be carried out safely and simply via the ISOBUS terminal in the tractor cab. The multifunction joystick makes handling especially comfortable.
Profi-fold 1:
Height adjustment, fold out and in, independent one-sided folding at a reduced forward speed (max. 6 km/h), boom width reduction, tilt adjustment.
Profi-fold 2:
In addition with variable geometry, individual boom tip angling.

Standard with Profi-fold: Large filter in the oil circuit for safe, reliable function.

Now for the first time, there is one solution that responds to all the demands on the pump drive, boom or steering hydraulics – a special load-sensing hydraulic system (LS Profi-fold). This means that AMAZONE now provides a hydraulic pump drive that is not dependent on tractor size.

Pre-select folding
One-sided boom folding is possible through either an AMASPRAY+ or ISOBUS terminal using the tractor spool valves.
The high level of flexibility offered by the pre-select folding function enables all part width sections to be folded individually. Both the left and right-hand sides can be folded in separately and independently of each other in order to adapt to any circumstances in your fields.

DistanceControl with 2 or DistanceControl plus with 4 sensors
For all booms, in combination with Profi-fold 1 or 2, the fully-automatic boom guidance system DistanceControl, with 2 or DistanceControl plus with 4 sensors, is available. 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.

AutoLift – the convenient automatic headland system for every UX with Profi-folding
When the sprayer is switched off whilst turning on the headland, the boom is raised automatically and when the sprayer is switched back on, the boom returns down to ist working height. This reduces the risk of damage to the boom while turning on the headland.

+ The spraying and headland height are stored in the ISOBUS terminal (DistanceControl menu)
+ For Profi-fold 1 and 2
+ As before, the tilt has to be adjusted manually

Automatic boom lowering in GPS-Switch
In GPS-Switch via AMATRON 3, the boom can be set to already start to lower before the untreated area has been reached. So, when the nozzles open, the boom is already at the optimum operating height. Precondition is a field border in GPS-Switch and the function AutoLift/Profi-fold.

The DUS pressure recirculation system on the Super-S boom – proven more than 10,000 times
The AMAZONE DUS pressure recirculation system guarantees the safe circulation within the entire system. When starting the spraying operation all the hoses including the spray lines are filled under pressure in the reverse direction with themixed spray agent. This means the spray lines are always full and immediately ready to use over the entire working width. There is no waiting on the headland.
Every time individual part-width sections are shut off, during the turning operation and during transport, the spray liquid circulates continually thanks to the pressure recirculation system. This reliably prevents deposits, blockages or segregation in the spray lines.
The concentration of the spray agent always remains constant right up to the nozzles, so the start of spraying is carried out without any problems after, for example, a change of ingredients.
During the cleaning operation, fresh water flushes the spray lines out right up to the nozzles without any spraying being necessary. During this cleaning procedure the concentrated spray liquid is returned back to tank via the pressure recirculation system leaving the spray lines clean.

Electric boundary nozzle switching
Additional nozzle switching
In order to extend the normal working width, an asymmetrical nozzle can also be switched on. This is
particularly useful if the distances between tramlines are not precise enough.
End nozzle switching
If a one metre buffer zone around the edge of the field needs to remain unsprayed due to distance constraints, end nozzle switching can be used.
Boundary nozzle switching
For precision border spraying between two sensitive crops, the boundary nozzles can be used to make sure the spray pattern is accurately defined

AmaSwitch and AmaSelect individual nozzle switching
Exact switching in 50 cm part-width sections:
The decisive benefit of this individual nozzle switching is the possibility to operate with small part-width sections to be even more precise in wedge-shaped areas, short work and on the headland. The amount of overlap is significantly reduced on the headland, for instance, by up to 85 % less when compared with conventional Section Control part width section switching. In this way, depending on field shape, boom width and number of part-width sections, the combination of GPS-Switch and AmaSwitch results in considerable savings of spray agent compared with the usual crop protection techniques used up to now.
If AmaSwitch or AmaSelect are combined with GPS-Switch automatic headland and part width section control, the individual nozzles are automatically switched in 50 cm part width sections.
Including DUS pro high pressure recirculation
Standard equipment with AmaSwitch and AmaSelect includes the DUS pro high pressure recirculation  system. DUS pro prevents deposits in the conical spray line and ensures an even spray agent concentration. Thanks to the pressure recirculation system, all the nozzles are ready for operation over the entire boom width. In addition, when switching off individual part-width sections and when turning or during transport, the spray agent remains in constant circulation. In this way deposits, blockages and any potential demixing in the spray lines is safely prevented.

AmaSwitch individual nozzle switching
Automatic 50 cm part-width section switching:
Even today, many crop protection sprayers in the market feature a normal part-width section valve chest. Here the classic part-width section often is 3 to 5 m wide. For manual part-width section actuation by the driver, having smaller part-width sections did not really make sense due to the accuracy of the switch points. Thanks to the automatic part-width section control via GPS-Switch, more precise switching points with even smaller part-width sections are used so that valuable crop protection agents are saved. With AmaSwitch, AMAZONE offers a simple and precise solution for the automatic part-width section switching on 50 cm part-width sections.
AmaSwitch is a cost-effective alternative for users who do not want to make electric nozzle changeover a priority but, however, want to make use of the advantages of the very precise switching in wedge-shaped fields and overlap zones thanks to the 50 cm part-width section control.
Standard equipment with AmaSwitch includes the DUS pro high pressure recirculation system and, in addition, can be equipped with LED individual nozzle lighting.
Triple nozzle body, with electric on/off switching:
The technology behind AmaSwitch is based on a conventional, manually-rotated, triple nozzle body with electric individual on/off. The opening and closing is achieved via an electric valve which is fixed directly onto the nozzle body. So, in conjunction with GPS-Switch, it is possible to control the boom very precisely in 50 cm part-width sections in wedge-shaped fields and on the headland. In addition to the automatic switching using 50 cm part-width sections, it is possible to configure the amount of part-width sections
from choice.

AmaSelect individual nozzle control
The most up-to-date application technology:
The AmaSelect individual nozzle control consists of a 4-fold nozzle carrier with electric on/off switching enabling, additionally, the changeover from nozzle to nozzle. In this way, the system offers in addition to the 50-cm part width section control which can be automatically switched via GPS-Switch, the electrical changeover between the four fitted nozzles via the operator terminal.
An additional possibility is the automatic changeover or switching on of a nozzle. By entering in the terminal the optimum pressure range of every individual nozzle within the 4-fold nozzle carrier, the system automatically changes over the nozzles according to these predetermined factors. This offers the possibility, for instance when leaving the optimum pressure range of a nozzle, to switch on a second nozzle or to changeover to a larger nozzle. However, if desired, any number of part-width sections can be freely configured to include any number of nozzles. Just for farmers or agricultural contractors with different tramline systems, a simple matching of the nozzle switching with the relevant working width is possible
With 50 cm or 25 cm nozzle spacing:
As an option, the AmaSelect nozzle carrier can also be equipped with an off-set kit giving 25 cm nozzle spacing. This, in conjunction with special 80° nozzles, offers the benefit of reducing the target height above crop to below 50 cm. In addition, this version can be supplemented by the HighFlow option for applications with extremely high application rates.
As standard, AmaSelect is equipped with DUS pro high pressure recirculation and LED individual nozzle lighting.

Liquid fertilisation – mature solutions for high outputs
The AMAZONE UX is especially suited for liquid fertilising: the use of high grade plastic material, a good paintwork and the virtually exclusive use of stainless steel ensures a long life even with liquid fertiliser operation.
In conjunction with the Super-S2 boom a separate drag hose unit is available. The self-contained aluminium profiles can be attached with a few hand clamps. Drag hoses offer a risk-free late top dressing with liquid fertiliser and stainless steel weights help keep the position of the drag hoses within the crop.
For coarse droplet distribution of liquid fertiliser, AMAZONE offers multi-hole nozzles (3 or 7 holes) or even FD sluice nozzles.
On request, the Super-L2 boom with TG valve chest can be equipped with a second spray line. The staggered nozzle bodies then allow the fitting of drag hoses at a spacing of 25 cm.

Special equipment: HighFlow
For UX 4200 Super, 5200 Super, 6200 Super and UX 11200 with Super-L2 boom
To double the maximum application rate, the pump system on the UX Super and the UX 11200 can be connected in parallel. The HighFlow option opens up a new dimension in output.
+ It allows large quantities of liquid fertiliser to be applied at higher speeds.
+ For vegetable growing, spray rates of 2000 l/ha at 5 to 6 km/h are possible.
+ These large amounts are  possible by utilising the TG valve chest equipped with an additional spray line and a double nozzle layout on a spacing of 25 cm or with AmaSelect.

Underleaf spraying equipment
In conjunction with the Super-S boom AMAZONE offers an elegant solution for the successful underleaf spraying in vegetable and maize. crops. The Dropleg system from Lechler, for instance, is a freeswinging, underleaf spraying device that works across the rows and is an example of an easy and robust solution that fulfils the most professional of demands.

LED individual nozzle lighting
Professional work lighting is today the basis of a flexible, output-increasing solution to operating in twilight and at night.
Illumination of the spray fans ensures complete control of the nozzle function at just one glance.
LED individual nozzle lighting picks out each individual spray fan. An absolutely immediate assessment of their operation down to the very last nozzle on the boom can be made.

Boom lighting is provided by two LED work lights mounted in the centre of the boom and, from here, due to their wide-reaching illumination; prove to be a particularly effective execution. Two further LED work lights to give additional background lighting can be mounted up on the platform.

Camera system to the rear of the UX trailed sprayer
The optionally available camera system mainly serves for safety when manoeuvring. It is also a super aid when monitoring the function of the nozzles directly behind the machine. The 8 inner nozzles are detected by the camera. This is ensured even in rain, twilight or in darkness via infrared LEDs and a heated lens. The high resolution, antiglare monitor is backlit and can also display two cameras at once.
As an alternative, pictures from the camera can also be displayed on the CCI ISOBUS terminal via the CCI Cam camera function.

Hydraulic height adjustable jack for more comfort
A height adjustable jack is integrated in the frame and with its convenient optional hydraulic height adjustment eases coupling to the tractor. A manual mechanical retainer has been fitted as standard.

UX 11200 Crop Protection Sprayer

Overview

The UX 11200 trailed sprayer, with its enormous tank volume of 11,200 litres, can cope easily with the high pressure to cover the acres. With the Super-L2 sprayer boom, in working widths from 24 to 40 m and its triple pump system, with a fill capacity of 900 l/min, it is perfectly suited both for enterprises with large field sizes and also for crops with particularly high application rates.

Accessories

Traction compensator
The UX 11200 also excels on heavily sloping ground: the traction compensator in the hydro-pneumatic axle suspension enables a temporary increase of the drawbar support load from 3 to 4 t with a filled machine.
When the machine is partly filled, the support load increases by up to 30 %. This is possible due to a setting valve in the hydraulic system which controls the level of pressure in the auspension of both axles

DoubleTrail – fully automatic axle steering
Optionally the UX 11200 can also be equipped with the electronically-controlled DoubleTrail axle steering. This positive, electronic steering of both axles is of special importance for row crops, such as potatoes, sugar beet or in small fields to prevent track damage.
The first axle now truly follows the tracks of the tractor’s rear wheels; the second axle follows the track of the tractor’s front wheels. In this way the tracking performance perfectly matches the tractor and, above all, the sprayer boom ride is unaffected by any steering movements. In road transport, the first axle is locked and the second ons is actively steered by the system.

AMATRON 3 – the terminal for all plant protection functions
The AMATRON 3 operator terminal allows the fully automatic regulation of the pre-set application rate (l/ha). Rate changes are possible in pre-selected % steps.
Due to its clear, simple and logical handling and its illuminated keys, this terminal is especially operator-friendly. For monitoring the system a high contrast and low reflection display has been installed. The very compact shape of the terminal requires little space in the tractor cab.
By using two flow meters, the application rate is extremely precisely maintained, particularly at low spray rates.

The terminal features the following functions:

AMACLICK
Special crops often require the on/off switching of individual part width sections in the centre of the boom. AMACLICK is an additional ergonomic control unit which can be operated both in conjunction with the Joystick AmaPlot but also solely with an ISOBUS terminal.

GPS-Switch for AMATRON 3
This GPS assisted operator terminal system automates the exact control of the machine on the headlands, around the field border and when spraying in wedges. The working width and the arrangement of the part-width sections are taken into account.
The automatic GPS-Switch part-width section control offers precision, comfort and safety: simply select the desired degree of overlap and leave the GPS-Switch in automatic mode. So, even in difficult circumstances, such as wider working widths, limited visibility at dawn or dusk, or in high crops, the job can be mastered. In addition: you save up to 5 % on crop protection agents, whilst at the same time safeguarding the environment and can fully focus on monitoring the sprayer.

GPS-Track for AMATRON 3
The GPS-Track parallel driving aid turns out to be an enormous advantage for easy orientation in fields without tramlines or on grassland. It features various track modes, such as A-B line and contour travel and an obstacle function. The bouts are numbered all the way across. The deviation from the true line is shown on the display. Unmistakable steering recommendations help keep you in the track. Also the distance to the next tramline is shown precisely, providing the ideal guide, for example, when locating the correct maize row.

External lightbar for GPS Track parallel guidance system
As a possibility, an external lightbar display is available which can be easili used in conjunction with GPS-Track. The external lightbar can be freely positioned anywhere in the cab.

GPS-Maps for Amatron 3
The additional module GPS-Maps enables GPS-based processing of application maps in a shape file format. Both in AMABUS, and also in ISOBUS mode.
The direct application rate can be used or the amount of spray agent. With AMATRON 3, the spray rates can still be adapted.
Task Controller is available as standard and enables the processing of application maps in ISO-MXL format, both in AMABUS and also in ISOBUS mode, even without GPS Maps.

CCI 100 terminal
The CCI ISOBUS terminal from AMAZONE is the result of the cooperation with several other manufacturers of agricultural machinery who are joint participants in the Competence Center ISOBUS e.V (CCI). With CCI, AMAZONE and its partners have laid the foundation to introduce ISOBUS into practice. The CCI is the basis to convert all AMAZONE machinery and implements successively to the ISOBUS standard.
+ The bright 8.4″ display with its high screen resolution and ambient light sensor matches the brightness automatically to the light conditions. This avoids the driver in twilight or at night being blinded by too bright a display.

+ The input is carried out from choice via the operator friendly touch screen or via the soft keys.

+ Fatigue-free operation at night is assisted by the back-lighting of the keys which are also connected with the light sensor.

+ The proven AMAZONE one-handed operation is still possible because the function of the ”soft keys“ can be simply mirrored.

+ For intuitive menu guidance and the convenient input of values and text, the terminal is provided with a high-quality touch screen.

+ For the direct quick, input and adjustment of the input values, a scroll wheel with actuating function is ergonomically integrated in the housing.
The terminal includes the following functions:
+ ISOBUS machine operation
+ Tractor ECU function (Interface for Speed, PTO shaft and lower link position)
+ CCI.Control job management for documentation
+ CCI.Command (optional)

AMAPAD – the new dimension in control and monitoring
With the AMAPAD operator terminal, AMAZONE offers an entirely new and high-class solution for GPS application such as automated GPS based part-width section control and Precision Farming applications.
AMAPAD features an especially ergonomic, 12.1” touch screen. With the unique “Mini-View” concept, applications that do not need to be actuated but which, however, need to be monitored, are clearly shown at the side. If needs be, these can be enlarged by “finger tip“ widening. The possibility also exists to customise the Display, a feature which rounds off the exceptional layout of this operator terminal.
In addition to GPS-Switch pro part-width section control, a high-quality professional manual light bar guidance system is also installed as standard. GPS-Track can also be upgraded to an automated steering system.

The terminal includes the following functions:
– ISOBUS implement actuation
– TaskController job Management for documentation
– GPS-Switch pro automatic section control with up to 128 part-width sections via DynamicSpread
– Integrated light bar for GPS-Track pro parallel steering aid
– As an option: upgradable to automatic steering
– GPS-Maps pro application map modul
– RS232 Interface via SCU adapter (for data exchange)
– Two USB interfaces for data exchange
– WLAN module (via USB adapter)
– GPS output
The characteristics of AMAPAD:
+ screen made from toughened glass
+ housing made from impact-proof plastic
+ extra-narrow rim for maximum visibility
+ flush finish, no penetration of dust / humidity

AmaPilot multi function joystick
Special comfort if offered via the actuation of boom- and control chest functions via the AmaPilot multi-function joystick. All the functions in the operation menu can also be actuated via the AMAPilot multi-function Joystick or other ISOBUS joysticks (AUX-N).

Future oriented technology
For the automatic variation of the application rate UG crop protection sprayers can be accessed by many external TPS terminals. One example is for the part area site-specific application of growth regulator in cereals using the YARA N-Sensor.So, depending on the target and the terminal, several possibilities are offered, both for part-area site specific application from a map or using a sensor. You, as the operator can  decide for yourself on the right system for your conditions and application.

Documentation with ASD
Starting from field records the automatic field related documentation (ASD) offers the possibility to exchange, via a blue toogh interface, application plans and actual programmes via AMASTRPRAY+ and AMATRON 3 on-board computers. In this way the documentation is more accurate and simpler and hand written notes are not necessary.

Today ASD allows documentation with many important field record software providers in Europe and to promote further accessibility the ASD interface is available as an open standard for all implement and software suppliers. With ASD AMAZONE offers a practical, value for money documentation system for all types of farming.

The DUS pressure recirculation system on the Super-S boom – proven more than 10,000 times
The AMAZONE DUS pressure recirculation system guarantees the safe circulation within the entire system. When starting the spraying operation all the hoses including the spray lines are filled under pressure in the reverse direction with themixed spray agent. This means the spray lines are always full and immediately ready to use over the entire working width. There is no waiting on the headland.
Every time individual part-width sections are shut off, during the turning operation and during transport, the spray liquid circulates continually thanks to the pressure recirculation system. This reliably prevents deposits, blockages or segregation in the spray lines.
The concentration of the spray agent always remains constant right up to the nozzles, so the start of spraying is carried out without any problems after, for example, a change of ingredients.
During the cleaning operation, fresh water flushes the spray lines out right up to the nozzles without any spraying being necessary. During this cleaning procedure the concentrated spray liquid is returned back to tank via the pressure recirculation system leaving the spray lines clean.

Liquid fertilisation – mature solutions for high outputs
The AMAZONE UX is especially suited for liquid fertilising: the use of high grade plastic material, a good paintwork and the virtually exclusive use of stainless steel ensures a long life even with liquid fertiliser operation.
In conjunction with the Super-S2 boom a separate draghose unit is available. The self-contained aluminium profiles can be attached with a few hand clamps. Drag hoses offer a risk-free late top dressing with liquid fertiliser and stainless steel weights help keep the position of the drag hoses within the crop.
For coarse droplet distribution of liquid fertiliser, AMAZONE offers multi-hole nozzles (3 or 7 holes) or even FD sluice nozzles.
On request, the Super-L2 boom with TG valve chest can be equipped with a second spray line. The staggered nozzle bodies then allow the fitting of drag hoses at a spacing of 25 cm.

Special equipment: HighFlow
For UX 4200 Super, 5200 Super, 6200 Super and UX 11200 with Super-L2 boom
To double the maximum application rate, the pump system on the UX Super and the UX 11200 can be connected in parallel. The HighFlow option opens up a new dimension in output.
+ It allows large quantities of liquid fertiliser to be applied at higher speeds.
+ For vegetable growing, spray rates of 2000 l/ha at 5 to 6 km/h are possible.
+ These large amounts are  possible by utilising the TG valve chest equipped with an additional spray line and a double nozzle layout on a spacing of 25 cm or with AmaSelect.

Even better with Profi-fold!
Profi-fold – flexible and comfortable.
All the hydraulic functions can be carried out safely and simply via the ISOBUS terminal in the tractor cab. The multifunction joystick makes handling especially comfortable.
Profi-fold 1:
Height adjustment, fold out and in, independent one-sided folding at a reduced forward speed (max. 6 km/h), boom width reduction, tilt adjustment.
Profi-fold 2:
In addition with variable geometry, individual boom tip angling.

Standard with Profi-fold: Large filter in the oil circuit for safe, reliable function.

Now for the first time, there is one solution that responds to all the demands on the pump drive, boom or steering hydraulics – a special load-sensing hydraulic system (LS Profi-fold). This means that AMAZONE now provides a hydraulic pump drive that is not dependent on tractor size.

Preselect folding
One-sided boom folding is possible through either an AMASPRAY+ or ISOBUS terminal using the tractor spool valves.
The high level of flexibility offered by the pre-select folding function enables all part width sections to be folded individually. Both the left and right-hand sides can be folded in separately and independently of each other in order to adapt to any circumstances in your fields.

DistanceControl with 2 or DistanceControl plus with 4 sensors
For all booms, in combination with Profi-fold 1 or 2, the fully-automatic boom guidance system DistanceControl, with 2 or DistanceControl plus with 4 sensors, is available. 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.

AutoLift – the convenient automatic headland system for every UX with Profi-folding
When the sprayer is switched off whilst turning on the headland, the boom is raised automatically and when the sprayer is switched back on, the boom returns down to ist working height. This reduces the risk of damage to the boom while turning on the headland.

+ The spraying and headland height are stored in the ISOBUS terminal (DistanceControl menu)
+ For Profi-fold 1 and 2
+ As before, the tilt has to be adjusted manually

Automatic boom lowering in GPS-Switch
In GPS-Switch via AMATRON 3, the boom can be set to already start to lower before the untreated area has been reached. So, when the nozzles open, the boom is already at the optimum operating height. Precondition is a field border in GPS-Switch and the function AutoLift/Profi-fold.

Electric boundary nozzle switching
Additional nozzle switching
In order to extend the normal working width, an asymmetrical nozzle can also be switched on. This is
particularly useful if the distances between tramlines are not precise enough.
End nozzle switching
If a one metre buffer zone around the edge of the field needs to remain unsprayed due to distance constraints, end nozzle switching can be used.
Boundary nozzle switching
For precision border spraying between two sensitive crops, the boundary nozzles can be used to make sure the spray pattern is accurately defined

AmaSwitch and AmaSelect individual nozzle switching
Exact switching in 50 cm part-width sections:
The decisive benefit of this individual nozzle switching is the possibility to operate with small part-width sections to be even more precise in wedge-shaped areas, short work and on the headland. The amount of overlap is significantly reduced on the headland, for instance, by up to 85 % less when compared with conventional Section Control part width section switching. In this way, depending on field shape, boom width and number of part-width sections, the combination of GPS-Switch and AmaSwitch results in considerable savings of spray agent compared with the usual crop protection techniques used up to now.
If AmaSwitch or AmaSelect are combined with GPS-Switch automatic headland and part width section control, the individual nozzles are automatically switched in 50 cm part width sections.
Including DUS pro high pressure recirculation
Standard equipment with AmaSwitch and AmaSelect includes the DUS pro high pressure recirculation  system. DUS pro prevents deposits in the conical spray line and ensures an even spray agent concentration. Thanks to the pressure recirculation system, all the nozzles are ready for operation over the entire boom width. In addition, when switching off individual part-width sections and when turning or during transport, the spray agent remains in constant circulation. In this way deposits, blockages and any potential demixing in the spray lines is safely prevented.

AmaSwitch individual nozzle switching
Automatic 50 cm part-width section switching:
Even today, many crop protection sprayers in the market feature a normal part-width section valve chest. Here the classic part-width section often is 3 to 5 m wide. For manual part-width section actuation by the driver, having smaller part-width sections did not really make sense due to the accuracy of the switch points. Thanks to the automatic part-width section control via GPS-Switch, more precise switching points with even smaller part-width sections are used so that valuable crop protection agents are saved. With AmaSwitch, AMAZONE offers a simple and precise solution for the automatic part-width section switching on 50 cm part-width sections.
AmaSwitch is a cost-effective alternative for users who do not want to make electric nozzle changeover a priority but, however, want to make use of the advantages of the very precise switching in wedge-shaped fields and overlap zones thanks to the 50 cm part-width section control.
Standard equipment with AmaSwitch includes the DUS pro high pressure recirculation system and, in addition, can be equipped with LED individual nozzle lighting.
Triple nozzle body, with electric on/off switching:
The technology behind AmaSwitch is based on a conventional, manually-rotated, triple nozzle body with electric individual on/off. The opening and closing is achieved via an electric valve which is fixed directly onto the nozzle body. So, in conjunction with GPS-Switch, it is possible to control the boom very precisely in 50 cm part-width sections in wedge-shaped fields and on the headland. In addition to the automatic switching using 50 cm part-width sections, it is possible to configure the amount of part-width sections
from choice.

AmaSelect individual nozzle control
The most up-to-date application technology:
The AmaSelect individual nozzle control consists of a 4-fold nozzle carrier with electric on/off switching enabling, additionally, the changeover from nozzle to nozzle. In this way, the system offers in addition to the 50-cm part width section control which can be automatically switched via GPS-Switch, the electrical changeover between the four fitted nozzles via the operator terminal.
An additional possibility is the automatic changeover or switching on of a nozzle. By entering in the terminal the optimum pressure range of every individual nozzle within the 4-fold nozzle carrier, the system automatically changes over the nozzles according to these predetermined factors. This offers the possibility, for instance when leaving the optimum pressure range of a nozzle, to switch on a second nozzle or to changeover to a larger nozzle. However, if desired, any number of part-width sections can be freely configured to include any number of nozzles. Just for farmers or agricultural contractors with different tramline systems, a simple matching of the nozzle switching with the relevant working width is possible
With 50 cm or 25 cm nozzle spacing:
As an option, the AmaSelect nozzle carrier can also be equipped with an off-set kit giving 25 cm nozzle spacing. This, in conjunction with special 80° nozzles, offers the benefit of reducing the target height above crop to below 50 cm. In addition, this version can be supplemented by the HighFlow option for applications with extremely high application rates.
As standard, AmaSelect is equipped with DUS pro high pressure recirculation and LED individual nozzle lighting.

LED individual nozzle lighting
Professional work lighting is today the basis of a flexible, output-increasing solution to operating in twilight and at night.
Illumination of the spray fans ensures complete control of the nozzle function at just one glance.
LED individual nozzle lighting picks out each individual spray fan. An absolutely immediate assessment of their operation down to the very last nozzle on the boom can be made.

LED work lights
Boom lighting is provided by two LED work lights mounted in the centre of the boom and, from here, due to their wide-reaching illumination; prove to be a particularly effective execution. Two further LED work lights to give additional background lighting can be mounted up on the platform.

Camera system to the rear of the UX trailed sprayer
The optionally available camera system mainly serves for safety when manoeuvring. It is also a super aid when monitoring the function of the nozzles directly behind the machine. The 8 inner nozzles are detected by the camera. This is ensured even in rain, twilight or in darkness via infrared LEDs and a heated lens. The high resolution, antiglare monitor is backlit and can also display two cameras at once.
As an alternative, pictures from the camera can also be displayed on the CCI ISOBUS terminal via the CCI Cam camera function.
