In agricultural machinery, work processes are being increasingly linked, and more and more implements are
controlled electronically. The ISOBUS standard allows solutions to be implemented across several machines. It makes sense to offer this for ploughs as well. With TurnControlPro, LEMKEN is
offering ISOBUS plough control for the Juwel mounted reversible plough for the first time.
While LEMKEN has extensive experience with electronic plough control, the ISOBUS standard has been used primarily in seeding technology and crop protection machines. The TurnControl system on the Juwel mounted reversible plough, with electro-hydraulic swing gear and hydraulic angle adjustment, creates an ideal environment for ISOBUS operation. TurnControlPro now allows these functions to be controlled easily via the CCI-200 terminal or the ISOBUS system on the tractor, without needing to operate the spool valves. The user interface on the display is intuitive and clear, making it easy to adjust any plough settings as needed. The ease of using the system can be increased even further by integrating additional elements operating under the ISOBUS IL4 standard such as joysticks and the tractor’s multifunction lever.
As standard, the TurnControl Pro system in the Juwel 8 controls plough rotation and the settings for working angle, width and depth via the hydraulic support wheel. GPS-controlled working width adjustment has also been integrated. Additional functions such as front furrow width adjustment, packer operation or settings for the Hydromatik overload protection are available as options.
The TurnControl Pro on-board computer allows operating functions to be combined, saved and activated for up to four different scenarios, for example for ploughing on slopes and ploughing out surfaces. To prepare a shallow end furrow, a scenario with a shortened top link and a shallower support wheel setting would, for example, be activated. This novel feature finally allows the ISOBUS functionalities of tractors to be utilised in mounted ploughs as well.
