MONOSEM showcases a rage of farming solutions at SIMA

2 MS VersionVMONOSEM has displayed a range of solutions including CT 3500 Fertiliser Cart, MS version V metering unit and Full electric WingFold planter during SIMA agribusiness show in Paris

CT 3500 Fertiliser Cart

The CT 3500 is mounted on a pull‐type frame equipped with a standard hitch on the front side (K80 ball hitch available on option), and a three‐point rear hitch cat.

As standard, the cart is equipped with 710/50 R 22,5 low pressure tyres enabling a 3m transport width (if the planter also has a 3m transport width). 270/95 R 32 twin‐wheels are also available on option for those who prefer to avoid riding on the future seeding line. In this case, the transport width is also of 3m with inter‐rows of 70 or 75 cm. For other inter‐row spacings, the transport width is always less than 3,50 metres.

This type of fertilisers gives an important autonomy without requiring a highly ballasted or high power tractor. Moreover, to adapt to the planter’s weight and have a minimum weight impact on the tractor hitch, the CT 3500 has on its boom a 1,6T weight composed of two 500kg quickly removable weights. This allows to reduce the weight on the fertiliser hitch depending on the planter used or when it is coupled to a cultivator.

The CT 3500 has a double stainless steel distribution unit. Identical to the distribution units used on MONOSEM front fertilisers, it has two electric drives. Their rotation is managed by the ISOBUS ECU F800E offering the metering anticipation function and the AEF certification of the UT, TC‐BAS and TC‐SC functions. A radar, fixed on the cart enables the automatic regulation.

Full electric WingFold planter

This eight‐row pull‐type and folding WingFold planter has Monoshox NX ME metering units. Like on the other electric planter models, the metering units are driven by motoreductors via a notched belt. 

This planter is equipped with an eight‐outlet fertiliser. The distributions are driven by two electric motors. The user can adjust the quantity of fertiliser from the cab, via the ISOBUS terminal.

Concerning the microgranulators, the Microsem are driven by three electric motors. The Microsem units are managed via the planter ECU, controlled by the ISOBUS terminal and integrated into the planter control menu. The user can therefore adjust the dosing from the cab, cut off the product distribution manually or automatically via the TC‐SC function on the whole planter or on certain sections.

Like on all MONOSEM electric planters, this planter has an ECU S8000E certified UT, TC‐SC, TC‐BAS, TC‐GEO by the AEF. Thus, the ECU can manage the seed population according to a prescription map already downloaded on the terminal. Depending on the terminal type, it is also possible to manage other recommendation maps for fertiliser and/or microganulates.

Full electric WingFold planter

This eight‐row pull‐type and folding WingFold planter has Monoshox NX ME metering units. Like on the other electric planter models, the metering units are driven by motoreductors via a notched belt. The whole is managed by the ECU placed on the planter and controlled, from the cab, via an ISOBUS TOUCH Mini, TOUCH or TOUCH Pro terminal.

This planter is equipped with an eight‐outlet fertiliser. The distributions are driven by two electric motors. The user can adjust the quantity of fertiliser from the cab, via the ISOBUS terminal. It is possible to stop fertilising on half the planter rows by stopping one of the two motors manually or automatically via the TC‐SC function.

Concerning the microgranulators, the Microsem are driven by three electric motors. The Microsem units are managed via the planter ECU, controlled by the ISOBUS terminal and integrated into the planter control menu. The user can therefore adjust the dosing from the cab, cut off the product distribution manually or automatically via the TC‐SC function on the whole planter or on certain sections.

Like on all MONOSEM electric planters, this planter has an ECU S8000E certified UT, TC‐SC, TC‐BAS, TC‐GEO by the AEF.

Depending on the terminal type, it is also possible to manage other recommendation maps for fertiliser and  microganulates.
