The AEF certification label with ISOBUS functionalities provides a clear and easy overview:
Provides the ability to control an implement using any terminal or alternatively the ability to use a single terminal for controlling various implements.
Tractor Electronic Control Unit
A tractor's job computer can be used to supply essential tractor data for the implement via ISOBUS, including speed, PTO speed and linkage height, among others. These data can then be used for controlling the implement.
Auxiliary Control old
Auxiliary control elements according to the old standard
Auxiliary Control new
Auxiliary control elements according to the new standard are freely programmable. The "old" and "new" standards are not compatible with each other; LEMKEN implements work under the AUX-N standard.
Documents total values that are helpful for providing an overview of the work done. The relevant values are obtained from the implement.
Additionally provides the ability to collect location-specific data or plan location-specific jobs, for example using application cards.
Task-Controller section control
Automatic part width section control depending on the GPS location and required degree of overlap.
What is the AEF?
The Agricultural Industry Electronics Foundation was established in October 2008 by seven international manufacturers of agricultural implements and two associations. The initiative is an independent international organisation. It is a user platform that provides resources and expertise for the increased utilisation of electronic and electrical systems in agriculture.
Electronic systems make agricultural implements safer, more powerful, more precise and more efficient. However, individual manufacturers previously developed their own, proprietary solutions, which resulted in specific adjustments being necessary for each tractor/implement combination. ISOBUS is designed as a simpler approach that provides a non-proprietary "plug and play" solution. AEF Guidelines ensure that signals such as speed, lower link position, PTO speed etc. are made available in a standardised form by all implements. Communications between implements and field data are standardised and therefore simplified by means of the ISO-XML format. ISOBUS is one of the core tasks of the AEF.
