INTELLIGENT DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM (IDS)
IDS is a unique system worldwide that guarantees a consistent flow of seed to each row, saving seed material usage. The unique, completely new IDS distribution system meets all the specifications demanded by the market. It is based on an electrical metering drive controlled by a POWER CONTROL terminal or the tractor's ISOBUS system. The distributor head offers the full range of tramline widths, track widths, special tramline modes, dual tramline systems and half-width switching to the left or right. The seed flow is reduced automatically for tramlines and half rail switching. All outlets are controlled by a BUS system.
Because any of the above parameters can be applied, the machine offers ultimate flexibility for every situation and requirement. That is top-class customer proximity.

Individual seed drilling technology integrated into a pneumatic seed drill
With the new development of the AEROSEM pneumatic seed drill, Pöttinger has come up with a unique capability: integrating individual seed drilling technology into a standard pneumatic seed drill. The advantages of both worlds have been united in one machine that is especially suitable for drilling maize and sunflowers. The drill is fitted with up to 10 individual seed elements for a row spacing of 37.5 cm or 75 cm (and 12.5 cm on the AEROSEM ADD). Application-specific fertilization is also built into this machine: using the standard metering system with a distributor head add-on, fertilizer can be applied between the seed rows. Grass seed can also be drilled simultaneously, combined with individual seed drilling, to provide optimum erosion protection. Another step into the future!
The technical features in detail
The seed hopper is divided into two segments, 400 litres are available for individual seed drilling (there are no individual tanks for each row) and approx. 850 litres is available for fertilizer or grass seed. Switching between normal drilling and individual seed drilling is performed by moving the partition between the two segments. A seed level indicator is provided on both sides.
The individual seed metering elements are located beneath the additional funnel, i.e. a maximum of 10 rows (working width 4 metres) is possible. The individual seed metering system is driven independently of the standard metering system. The seed separation system is mechanical, with the individual grains then conveyed to the coulter under pressure. This guarantees precise separation without a vertical drop so that the seeds are equally spaced along the groove.
The large sized DUAL-DISCs are essential for precision seed placement: they push trash to the side without pressing harvest residues into the soil. In combination with the integrated seed groove former, this system achieves a uniform, tidy seed groove. The stopper roller catches the seed emerging from the air hose and presses it down so that it cannot roll away, ensuring plants are evenly spaced. Repacking and depth guidance are controlled using the proven standard pressure roller. Placement depth is adjustable on the left and right sides of the drill.
The machine is operated using the POWER CONTROL terminal, CCI terminal or the tractor's ISOBUS system. The row spacing, seed gap within the groove and seed per hectare can be entered into the system. The seed flow rate can easily be adjusted without have to swap drive chains/wheels etc. There is also a constant indication of drilling quality as a mean value and deviation from longitudinal spacing by optical sensors monitoring each seed row. Conventional calibration is now a thing of the past - this is the ultimate in convenience and accuracy for the farming professional.
