Potential Applications:

Remote Hydraulic Functions

  • Precision control of remote hydraulic functions for both tractor and implement mounted applications
  • User defined extend/retract/float detent time
  • Compact and rugged modules can be mounted directly to loaders or other implements
  • Modules can be configured as stand alone controllers for implements and other subsystems
  • Customized hardware and software for direct control of popular agricultural valves

Cab Function

  • Broad line up of displays to integrate engine, vehicle, and implement controls with integrated diagnostic    information and video
  • Cab mounted keypads to control lighting, hitch, transmission, axle, and implement functions
  • Externally mounted keypads for remote devices
  • Direct engine and transmission interface
  • Electrical power distribution and control (up to 40 amps per output)
  • High current power modules with integrated current sensing to drive lights, wipers, and HVAC controls
  • Automated headland management with user programmed sequential functions
  • PTO, differential, and axle control

Advanced Applications

  • Smart Dataloggers with up to 4GB and optional Wi-Fi communication to log critical events
  • Real time remote vehicle diagnostics and software update via a fully functional Telematics system
  • Draft control algorithms using a 32-bit processor
  • Cab and axle suspension control utilizing 32-bit processor and on board accelerometers
  • C based development CANLink Orchestra Presto is compatible with advanced development techniques

Future Flexibility

  • User friendly software to allow you to modify and update your control system as required 


Cost Effective

  • Distributing the vehicle controls will significantly reduce wiring harness cost, size and complexity
  • Integrated cab controls reduces complexity and frees up valuable dashboard space
  • Reduced Installation Cost
  • Lower Cost of Ownership
  • Reduced Warranty Cost
    • Reduced wiring
    • Robust products

Increased Performance

  • Closed-loop current control (up to 5mA accuracy) for fine metering and accurate flow control
  • High power processors and development tools for advanced applications such as active suspension and ride control

Improved Efficiency

  • Ability to easily automate sequential functions
  • Ability to coordinate subsystem (hydraulic, lighting and powertrain) to maximize fuel efficiency

Enhanced Flexibility

  • User-friendly software allows you to modify functionality in the field
  • Telematics allow you to download new functionality remotely from the web
  • CAN based, distributed system allows modules to be added quickly to the system
