Product Registration

Following Event Registration, Participants provide details of the products they intend to test by following an Equipment link on the Plugfest page within AEF ISOBUS Database. AEF uses the product information to determine whether products should be scheduled at dedicated test stations, or scheduled to be moved among the test stations for tests.

After the test station list is finalized, AEF will prepare a schedule of tests known as a Plugfest Test Matrix.

Plugfest Test Matrix is intended to maximize the combination of connections between service-type products (e.g. terminals) and client-type products (e.g. implements) over the course of the Plugfest. Service-type products are typically scheduled to stay at a fixed test stations, while client-type products are scheduled to be moved from station to station by the tester. Please keep the following guidelines in mind when registering products for the Plugfest:

  • When more than one client-type product is registered to the same Tester name, all products are scheduled for the same time slot at each station. Additional Testers are necessary to schedule each product to its own time slot.
  • Products will be scheduled through the available testing time slots on all Plugfest days; scheduling for a reduced number of days is not available.
  • Suppliers of products with both UT and TC service-type functionalities, are required to register separate test stations (additional product and Tester) for managing full tests of each functionality in parallel.


Participants must register equipment details within the AEF ISOBUS Database following event registration until August 28, 2024.

Participants will have the opportunity to review the Plugfest Test Matrix until September 09, 2024.
