Laying the foundation for control applications in agriculture machines

Laying the foundation for control applications in agriculture machines

Agriculture vehicles and implement manufacturers need to incorporate more and more electronic devices and components into their machinery. The objectives are to increase efficiency and productivity while reducing fossil fuel dependency and pollutant emissions. To meet these challenges, HYDAC / TTControl offers complete solutions to OEMs.

Example:

  • ISOBUS (ISO 11783:2017) developed into an industry-standard communication protocol for agricultural equipment manufacturers that allows tractors, implements and electronic equipment to communicate with each other independently of their manufacturers.
  • The HY-TTC 500 family of powerful Safety Controllers for high-end applications.
  • TTControl’s product portfolio also includes mid- and small-size electronic controllers and I/O modules, rugged operator interfaces and connectivity solutions ready for advances future use cases.
  • Vision 3, TTControl’s latest generation of powerful rugged operator interfaces, as well as TTConnect 616, an advanced connectivity device that combines and manages all in-vehicle communication interfaces such as CAN-FD, LIN and 100BASE-T1 BroadR-Reach®, also fulfil the ISOBUS standard compliance regulations.

As a customer of TTControl’s Joint-Venture Partner HYDAC International, the engineers at Maschio Gaspardo chose the new HY-TTC 508 controller among the models of the HY-TTC 500 controller family because of the Real-Time Clock and larger storage capacity, i.e. Flash and EEPROM, that are essential features for higher-level ISOBUS applications.
