ONE TERMINAL FOR ALL FUNCTIONS.
Guidance applications are becoming increasingly established as a standard in tractors and combines on many farms. The more precisely your work is accomplished, the more profitable it is. You can rely on the highest accuracy even in difficult working conditions such as in fog or at night-time. We can guarantee this to you thanks to the experience of thousands of customers working with SDF Guidance: those who worked with a steering system cannot do without it ever again. SDF Guidance means efficiency and the highest precision.
SDF Guidance allows farmers to save money thanks to its accuracy:
• Precise track-to-track guidance with repeatability, even in difficult working conditions;
• Reduced number of passes and as such time saved;
• Less resources used and more environmental benefits;
• Less efforts and focus required with other operations such as monitoring the machine.
The iMonitor3 is the core of our machines and it's essential for carrying out all important functions.
Our aim is the seamless system integration of both hardware and software into our cabin. On one terminal we combine the entire range of technology and applications of the Sdf Smart Farming Solutions, as well as several other features like tractor settings, cameras or the Comfortip headland management. The display can be changed from full screen to split screen. This ensures the best user-friendly interface and allows you to keep an overview of all processes.
The iMonitor3 already includes a wide set of features for both manual and automatic guidance applications as standard. They comprise:
You can organise your fields and assign names to the corresponding field boundaries. Contractors can even distinguish between different farms. This helps you manage your fields in order to obtain the best overview of your data.
You can set up a virtual headland inside your field boundary. It is even possible to display push notifications alerting you when the headland is getting close, which will also help you in all subsequent operations.
There are plenty of use cases for the guidance application. Due to this, it is important to have different types of guidelines available:
Controlled traffic farming (CTF) is a management tool which allows for the permanent usage of defined traffic guidelines. The goal is to reduce soil compaction caused by repeated passes of machines and even increase yields.
We know it’s very important to keep an overview of all the operations you've performed in the fields. The iMonitor3 allows you to easily record important data, such as fuel consumption or productivity. Access to these relevant data will help you in keeping the relevant documentation. Thanks to our SDF Data Management connectivity solutions, you can also transfer these agronomic data to any desired end point.
For some field operations, like seeding and planting, drivers would benefit a lot from gaining assistance in setting tramlines for follow-up operations. The iMonitor3 provides a feature which informs drivers with a pop-up when they are passing a tramline. Based on the working width of your equipment, you can adjust different settings for the correct distance.
The Auto-Turn feature allows Hürlimann tractors to perform automatic turns on the headland. You, as the driver, can decide which track to steer into. Additionally, different patterns are available – whether you want to skip lines or fill plots. As well as offering added convenience, this also gently decreases soil compaction on the headland, making follow-up runs very simple and even saving you some time!
The standard version of the iMonitor3 includes a large number of functions. We know that working with multiple complex applications at the same time is becoming more and more usual. For these situations, XTEND can expand the display area. It can be used by easily connecting tablets or smartphones to the iMonitor3 using a WLAN connection. Once you downloaded the XTEND app on your mobile device, it can be used to either display the guidance application or to control all ISOBUS-UT functions. This makes XTEND a very user-friendly and cost-efficient solution to achieve the best overview of all your applications!
