An all-new implement control terminal with ‘hidden’ virtual buttons has been developed by Amazone as a next generation AmaTron controller.
The AmaTron4 has Isobus capability for setting up, operating and monitoring compliant implements, and offers built-in precision farming functions available for a fee after an initial 50 hour free trial period. New ‘proximity detection’ technology ensures that the entire 8 inch colour touch screen is available to display information; virtual buttons for selecting active functions such as guidance or an auxiliary controller, appear only when the operator’s hand gets close.

Clear and simple to use
Screen swiping enables navigation through the operational menu and a configurable status bar along the top of the screen constantly shows the chosen parameters and information tabs. In addition to a physical on-off button to the left of the colour screen, the AmaTron4 has 12 soft keys arranged in 2 rows to the right, with 3 quick navigation keys – Home, Machine and gps – located above them on a raised hand-grip.
There are ports for Isobus data connections, a remote camera feed and import/export of prescriptions and ‘as applied’ report data. Photo: Amazone
Several pre-installed precision farming apps are available free for 50 hours, then for a fee; they include headland switching and section control, guidance and documentation. Photo: Amazone
A quick-start menu and straight-forward data import/export are promised and the screen brightness adjusts automatically to ambient conditions in both day and night modes. Fee-based pre-installed functions comprise Amazone gps-switch basic or gps-switch pro automatic headland and part-width section control, work reports and job management using gps-maps&doc, the gps-track parallel driving aid and AmaCam for a remote camera feed that automatically acts as a vehicle reversing camera.
