) At the Agritechnica 2019 – the world’s leading trade show for agricultural technology, which took place from 10 to 16 November in Germany – ERICH JAEGER presented the design study for a High-Speed Data Connector for heavy-duty applications in agricultural machinery concerning the connection between tractors and implements – with possible further applications for commercial vehicles and passenger cars. The connector system is based on the proven standard SAE J3008. It is watertight according to IP6K9K and IP67 and allows for data transmission rates of 1Gbit/s – for example for the transmission of digital camera signals.
The requirements on efficient modern farming demand for a reliable data transmission between tractors and implements. Only the collection and real-time processing of data enables technologies such as georeferenced manure distribution or highly precise seed placement. [...]
