Award for diagnostic tool

Mueller Elektronik (Germany) was awarded for its diagnostic tool for Isobus machines at Sima 2015. The Insight Me application, an overall diagnostic concept, is based on a CAN/Wi-Fi communication link.

THIS LINK ALLOWS A TABLET OR SMARTPHONE to be connected to the machine’s CAN/ISO 11783 network and also allows the technician to communicate with the electronic modules. The application, developed to function on mobile equipment, can therefore display information coming directly from the machine without being physically connected to the CAN network. The mobile equipment, thanks to its 3G/4G connection, can also serve as a gateway to a remote service.

Thus, the company offers a global diagnostic concept based on a communication link established thanks to a CAN/Wi-Fi gateway. This channel allows linking a tablet or a smartphone to the CAN/ISO 11783 machine network and enables the technician to communicate with the electronic units. The application allows identifying the cause of a failure more rapidly.

The app can be operated on different mobile equipment and offers several usage approaches that respond to various situations. On the one hand, it allows a complete access to internal data of the embedded electronic system from everywhere around the machine. The technician can be positioned anywhere on the machine and get precise information from the electronic system. On the other hand, this application makes a history file analysis of the electronic system possible.

This generation of ISO 11783-compatible job computers offers a large memory capacity to store data that are then viewable on a tablet or a smartphone via this application. Finally, the diagnostic tool allows the remote intervention of a support service, which can see and import data from the machine from its own workstation in order to more rapidly find the cause of a problem.

With the Insight Me mobile app, servicing a machine in the farm yard or in the middle of the field becomes a well-managed operation with the help of modern, connected and shared tools. This tool is mainly dedicated to professionals and is compatible with the range of Mueller-Elektronik’s applications the work on the last generation of the company’s job computers. This new generation of job computers and machine applications is compatible with the ISO 11783 standard.
