Amazone will launch the AmaTron4, an in-house developed tablet style ISOBUS terminal, at next month’s Cereals Event. Flagged up as completely new and providing the ultimate in operational comfort when operating complex machines, the low reflection 8” multi-touch colour display on the fourth generation AmaTron can be operated via the 12 soft keys or switch areas on the touch display. In addition there are three one-touch keys enabling the switch over between machine, GPS function and back to the main menu.

A finger swipe enables the operator to navigate through the operational menu and the company says changes to the most important settings are easily made and any job data can be imported or exported. A practical mini-view display highlights the most important machine settings and the switch areas in the touch display automatically appear or hide, to display information across the entire screen surface,

A proximity sensor at the front of the device detects a hand approaching for screen operation when all 12 switch areas are highlighted, and an integrated light sensor automatically matches the display brightness to the conditions.

The company can temporarily unlock a variety of fee-based software licences for AmaTron4, such as GPS-Switch basic or GPS-Switch pro automatic headland and part width section control, GPS-Maps&Doc documentation and job management software, GPS-Track parallel driving aid and AmaCam for the use of a camera.

Already pre-installed and requiring no additional software, any of the above applications can be initially tested free of charge for 50 hours.
