The ISOBUS gateway enables easy integration of ISOBUS functionalities in the control programme of an add-on unit for agricultural equipment. For this purpose, the function library provided is loaded via CODESYS V2.3 or V3.5 into the existing application programme where it configures the visualisation in line with the respective requirements.
Thanks to optimised data processing, only the values to be visualised on the connected display are transmitted, reducing the load on the data bus significantly. With the considerable reduction of implementation efforts, development costs are minimised. No additional licence fees for using the ISOBUS gateway will be required.
The ISOBUS gateway allows easy use of the existing display in the tractor unit via the ISOBUS. For this purpose, the gateway is installed between the controller in the add-on unit and the connection to the tractor unit. Using the libraries provided in CODESYS, the visualisation saved on the gateway is simply adjusted to suit the individual application. The most commonly used ISOBUS visualisation objects are available to this end.
In addition, the AUX function (Auxiliary Control Function) is supported so that the respective machine handling can be individually adapted to the application. With the convenient M12 connector, the ISOBUS gateway can be easily connected with any mobile controller from ifm via the CAN interface, even subsequently.
The ISOBUS gateway can be used in 12 V and 24 V on-board networks.
The high protection rating IP 67 and the closed surface provide protection even under adverse environmental conditions. Even extreme temperatures or permanent shock and vibration do not affect the functionality of the ISOBUS gateway.
