    Amazone UG3000 amatron issues

    Hi there,

    We are having a few issues with our Amazone trailed sprayer. There is delay between pressing the "start spraying" button and the triangles on the amatron turning black (to indicate that the sections of the boom are spraying). Then there is an additional delay from the triangles going black until spray comes out the nozzles on the boom. These delays would be about a couple of seconds for each one, and makes life reasonably interesting trying to come of the headlands and into each spray run. The worse thing about this is that it happens randomly. We run auto section control (and auto steer) via a Leica Mojo RTK unit, and the local Amazone dealer has told us to disconnect the Leica unit and turn off the Amatron and then reconnect and and restart, which mostly works, but still doesn't seems to be resolving the underlying fault, which seems to continue to occur on a relatively frequent but random basis. This gets pretty frustrating for my spray operator

    We think the problem lies in the Amatron control box's communication with the computer control box on the back of the sprayer, which according to our dealer does most of the thinking and sends back instructions to the Amatron box in the cab.

    Any thoughts from my Amazone spray operator brothers??

    Appreciate any input.

    Regards

    Does this only happen when the Leica is running the section control?

    Yes, pulling the cord out of the back of the Leica and restarting the amatron seems to solve the problem, but obviously we need to use the auto section as well.
