AP Dubex DBL : Dubex Boom Leveling

Smarter working

DBL is exclusively available at AP Dubex and integrates perfectly with the “superbalans” system that comes as standard on all our machines.

The well-known AP Dubex “superbalans” self-levelling system is equipped with a suspension point that can move sideways. Thanks to this, unevenness in the field has minimal effect on the boom’s behaviour which results in a constant spraying pattern.

On slopes however, manual adjustments have to be made. Thus, we have developed a system that adjusts our “superbalans” system in bends and slopes as well. The software that controls the boom not only works with ultrasonic sensors for the height control, but also uses a gyroscope. This determines the rotation speed of the boom and then indicates, in cooperation with the height sensors, how fast correction is required. Furthermore the system offers compensation when driving in curves.

The electronics make sure movement is stabilised quickly so separate dampers are no longer required.

The height sensors are mounted sufficiently spaced along the boom to help prevent any possible spray drift influencing the measured values of the sensors. When the booms are folded into the transport position the sensors are well protected in the boom.


Boom height control

For boom height control there are 3 options:

DBL Boom height control in combination with the gyroscope.
Level adjustment only.

DBL + Boom height control ín combination with the gyroscope and height sensors.
Level and height adjustment.

DBL ++ Boom height control in combination with the gyroscope, height sensors and geometry control*.
Level adjustment, height adjustment and geometry control.

* DBL ++: You select DBL++ if you have chosen the optional variable geometry and would like to have this controlled automatically as well, the machine then has 6 height sensors altogether.

All DBL advantages at a glance

  • Automatic height control
  • Electronic spirit level
  • Automatic ramp correction
  • Spray bearing, up to 25 cm above the crop, so less drift
  • Excellent deposition
  • Very stable in the curve
  • Great ease of operation
  • Headlands management
  • Work smoother
  • High ROI and efficiency

AP Dubex DCS: Dubex Cleaning System

Work faster

DCS is exclusively available at AP Dubex and is the perfect solution to automate the cleaning process.

If you choose the option DCS "automatic cleaning", you have acces to a DCS app in the AP Dubex menu in the terminal. In the menu you can select boom cleaning only or one of the options mentioned below.

Program Small: once flushing of the boom and the tank.

Program Standard: tripple flushing of the boom and the tank.

Program Large: the fourth time the remaining contents of the clean water tank will be used.

Most of the rinsing water is sprayed via the booms, the remainder that has returned to the tank via the circulation line, will be automatically discharged by the drain valve underneath the tank. The complete process is carried out while you are driving in the field, so you can leave the plot with a completely rinsed field sprayer.

All DCS advantages at a glance

  • Automatic cleaning
  • Several cleaning programs available
  • Guaranteed 100% internal cleaning
  • High user-friendliness
  • More rapid work progress
  • Higher return
