The nonprofit AEF association offers conformance testing of Isobus ECUs used by different OEMs. This avoids multiple test sessions.
Some suppliers provide their Isobus-compatible ECUs to multiple original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). These products are equipped with software, which is able to support different implement types. To facilitate the inclusion into the AEF Isobus Database, the AEF offers sub-suppliers certificates.
The sub-supplier requests an AEF Conformance Test for its controller, which is done by an official test lab. The company shares the unique Conformance Test ID (CCID) to all OEMs, which have integrated the certified ECU. The OEMs use this CCID for displaying their products in the database. The precondition is that the ECU of the sub-supplier and OEM’s ECU have the same software version.
For OEMs there is no need to perform a separate conformance test for their Isobus products. This saves money. In addition, this is a simple way to integrate products into the database. For sub-suppliers there are no additional database costs, when their ECU are used by several customers.
