CaseIH has unveiled the next generation Advanced Farming System (AFS) Pro monitoring and control system for its agricultural products.

The AFS Pro 700 replaces the 600 and is leaner, smaller and lighter, but the screen resolution (800x600 pixels) and the size of 265mm remains the same.

The firm says a new chipset boosts the performance by 500pc relative to the AFS Pro 600.

Core functionality remains the same, and monitoring and set-up functions for engine, transmission, PTO, lift and hydraulics are all available on the screen.

Data stored includes mapping of yield, fuel consumption and engine load data, all of which can be downloaded and analysed in the office.

Configuration

A hitch notebook feature allows configuration data on each implement to be stored and then accessed when that implement is hooked up.

There is also a split-screen function, which means the entire screen area is now user-defined.

The left-hand area of the screen can now be used to display items such as the Guidance Engage button, which would remain visible irrespective of the run screen selected.

The six run screens could then be individually configured for video, vehicle performance, productivity, guidance maps, ISOBUS and GPS Status, etc.

The AFS Pro 700 can support up to three video inputs, which can be shown on either side of the split screen.

Video feeds can be mirrored for reversing cameras and the size of the video window is definable by the operator. The AFS Pro 700 is ISOBUS-compliant, enabling communication with ISOBUS-compliant implements.

CaseIH says it will begin to roll out the AFS Pro 700 early next year on Steiger, Quadtrac and Magnum families, and Axial Flow, Puma and Maxxum lines will follow.

Generations

The AFS Pro 300 and AFS Pro 700 screens are backwards compatible with all previous generations of products that were fitted with the AFS 200 and AFS Pro 600 screens, and the Pro 700 is available as a factory-fit or retro-fit option.
