AEF: new app to check ISOBUS compatibility

26.10.2021
An application was presented during EIMA 2021 that allows agricultural equipment dealers, manufacturers and farmers to check the compatibility of equipment produced by various brands with the ISOBUS protocol.

The Agricultural Industry Electronics Foundation (AEF) announced at EIMA that it is launching the AEF ISOBUS Database (DB) App to allow dealers, manufacturers and end users of agricultural equipment to access its database, a directory of all ISOBUS-compatible products worldwide. Thanks to the new application, users can easily (while in the office or in the field) and free of charge carry out a detailed search by brand, product or functionality to confirm compatibility with the ISOBUS language.

"With so many different manufacturers creating a wide scope of agricultural products around the world, when you start using different brands together, they are not always technologically compatible," said Andrew Olliver, Vice Chairman, AEF. "However, when products all share the same ‘nerve system,’ more commonly known as the ‘ISOBUS,’ they communicate seamlessly. The AEF ISOBUS DB app identifies which products on the market are compatible and are ISOBUS-certified."

Information can also be shared with other people via the App, using messaging tools such as WhatsApp or by email. The AEF ISOBUS database only lists AEF ISOBUS-certified products. There are currently around 80 companies listed in the database, and this number is set to grow.

"The AEF ISOBUS DB app is an incredibly useful tool, especially for ag equipment dealers, when they have to advise their customers on their next ISOBUS equipment purchase," Olliver added. "In particular," concluded the AEF Vice Chairman, "dealers will be able to appreciate the new module and option displays."

In the app's module view, users can view detailed information about ISOBUS products, such as the individual controllers to see exactly which functionality they support. This helps dealers make product recommendations, as well as diagnose service compatibility issues. The option view provides the ability to view the compatibility of multiple product features.
