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.
