Machines can now be controlled by iPad via ISOBUS with the CLAAS EASY on-board app. The ISOBUS Task Controller basic (TC BAS) documentation function is also now available in the app. With 365FarmNet it’s easy to connect to job management and documentation online.
The EASY on-board app now offers the TC BAS documentation function with any AEF-certified field maps. Job data are exchanged by email in ISO-XML file format. So now a scheduled job file can be imported into the app or a completed order exported to the Farm Management system for further processing. The TC BAS function in the EASY on-board app is AEF-certified, which means that it is compatible with any AEF-certified Farm Management software. Compatibility can be checked in the AEF ISOBUS database (www.aef-isobus-database.org).
An extended range of functions is available when the EASY on-board app is linked to 365FarmNet. Data are exchanged directly via the Internet, eliminating the need to send email attachments. This makes it possible to create jobs in 365FarmNet, then access and process them in the app. Alternatively, new jobs can be created, processed and saved in the app, then viewed in 365FarmNet. So less time is spent on documentation and it can be done straight from the machine.
The EASY on-board app turns an iPad into an ISOBUS terminal (UT). All that’s needed is the tablet with the app, a mount in the cab to hold the tablet and the CLAAS Wireless Interface (CWI). The CWI wirelessly connects the iPad to ISOBUS, allowing the driver to control selected functions directly from the machine using the iPad. The ISOBUS function buttons in the tractor or on the joystick can also be configured using the ISOBUS auxiliary function (AUX-O) in the cab. A connection kit for easy ISOBUS wiring is available for older tractors.
Please note that the product range and feature options may vary in some countries. Please ask the CLAAS Sales company or the CLAAS importer in your country in case of doubt.
