Machinery access from any device

The West Australian

Case IH has unveiled a new data system that gives farmers real-time access to farm equipment information.

This includes location, diagnostics, agronomic data and fuel and engine statistics as they would be seen in the field, from web-enabled devices such as computers, smartphones and tablets.

The system will be available to farmers this week.

It will improve connectivity, Bruce Healy, Case IH Country brand leader said.

"AFS ConnectTM takes our Advanced Farming Systems to a whole new level of connectivity, giving farmers real time access to and control of their data, and the ability to share it with others," he said.

"The AFS Connect dashboard is bold, crisp and easy to read, giving a clear display of machine health parameters such as engine speed, hydraulics, oil temperature, fuel level and more.

"Farmers can monitor anything that uses power, from farming machines to road vehicles, allowing them to quickly identify and troubleshoot breakdowns, monitor progress in real time and send messages to equipment operators.

"Plus, farmers now have the option of sharing equipment data directly with their machinery dealer specialist to get immediate diagnostics and troubleshooting support.

"Simplicity is the key to efficiency, and this system is a delight to use."
