Check compatibility with a few clicks

After you have registerd to the AEF ISOBUS Database, with a few mouse clicks users can check which functionalities a certain product supports and moreover, which functionalities a certain combination of tractor, terminal and implement supports.

The database will show both the functionalities supported by each of the chosen products as well as those supported by all of them, i.e. the functionalities that can actually be used by this specific combination.

Different manufacturers.


Module view - the ability to see the functionalities of individual ISOBUS ECUs, that are included in a product

Module View

The additional view that was included is related to how ISOBUS products consisting of more than one ISOBUS electronic control unit (ECU) are viewed. For instance, a tractor typically consists of a tractor ECU, an universal terminal (UT) and an AUX joystick. Before the that the AEF ISOBUS Database was showing the aggregated product only, i.e. only the tractor.

Now this granularity is available to the DB user with the new modular view! First the user would look up the ISOBUS Product and would see all the supported functionalities as before. However, by selecting the down arrow on the right-hand side the individual ISOBUS ECUs and their associated functionalities are then displayed. Dealers will find this additional level of detail very helpful, especially when having to diagnose any issues!

    The option view provides details of the supported options

    Now, when you are looking up an ISOBUS product, you do see the blue outline and you know that it has been certified for that functionality, but what if there are options, for example with TC-SC, how many sections are supported?

    By selecting on the specific functionality blue square a pop up appears and it provides details of the supported options. For functionalities such as TIM and Task Controller this additional level of detail will be extremely useful for all AEF Database users.
