At the Agritechnica 2019, Mueller-Elektronik presents technologies and developments in the field of agricultural electronics, precision farming, and Isobus.
The Agritechnica in Hanover (Germany) trade fair for agricultural machinery and equipment will be held from November 10 to November 16, 2019. The Smart570 from Mueller-Elektronik enables an introduction to the Isobus world with so called easy-to-operate functions. As a universal terminal, it can be used on all Isobus implements, regardless of the manufacturer. The product complies with Isobus standard ISO 11783 and is AEF-certified.
The terminal is equipped with a 5,7-inch color display and offers a resolution of 640 pixels × 480 pixels. The representation of the ISO 11783 UT function supports work screens, which can be shown with up to 12 softkeys on the screen. The product offers a capacitive touch screen, a membrane keyboard, right hand operation, and a rotary encoder for optimum operation of the connected implement.
The touch operation of the terminal ensures convenient data inputs while preparing for operation. A membrane keypad and additional incremental rotary encoder enable control during operation. The functions of connected AUX-N devices can be assigned to the keys of AUX-N operating device in a convenient editor. The integrated tractor ECU (electronic control unit) can read basic signals via sensors. Speed and work position signals are evaluated and displayed in the form of a small dashboard. The terminal is connected directly via the wired CPC connector to the In-Cab socket of the tractor.
The terminal has good readability in sunlight, functions in an extended temperature range of -20 °C to +65 °C, and offers protection class IP67 to the user. The device is also ideal for use on implements without a cab or in small cabs, such as for fruit and vine growing.
The company also shows the Scale-Controller at the exhibition. It is a sophisticated Isobus weighing system Weighing System SCALE-Controller. In conjunction with an ECU, the total quantity can be monitored and regulated. Additional inputs and outputs support a multitude of implement functions, so that smaller machines can be completely controlled.
Of course, Mueller Elektroniks additionally shows other products such as a GPS receiver, a GNSS receiver, as well as a blockage sensor.
