The ISOBUS PLANTER-Controller is a control system for implements with mechanical, central or single drive. It supports up to 128 rows with SECTION-Control.
The job computer regulates the seed rate according to the set target rate in seeds per hectare. Both electric and hydraulic motors can be actuated to regulate the rate. Using sensor technology (e.g. optical sensors or PLANTirium® sensor), the seed is counted and monitored on each row.
The rate control system for fertilisers and micropellets is also possible.
In addition, different shut-off clutches can be switched manually or automatically (SECTION-Control) for each metering unit.
The motor control of the application rate per row allows the optimum seed placement and holds a great savings potential. On more complex implements with supplemental fertiliser placement, the system can also regulate this target rate according to specifications.
