Iowa planter maker Kinze Mfg., Inc., is offering ISOBUS capability as an option on its new equipment.
The connection also includes compatibility with John Deere's GreenStar display, and allows produces to use the equipment without having to change monitors, displays, wiring harnesses, or electrical connectors with different implements from different manufacturers.
With ISO compatibility, one monitor in the cab can run both the planter and the tractor, saving room in the tractor and money on additional monitors -- along with the time it takes to install the other monitor.
The technology means any ISOBUS-equipped tractor can be quickly connected using standard ISO connectors and the user interface presented is the same, regardless of brand of tractor or virtual terminal. Additionally, all planter settings are saved on the planter, so switching between tractors is not a problem.
