The general menu structure of the system is in line with the LEMKEN standard and facilitates intuitive operation. (Image source: LEMKEN)

In an attempt to prove an inexpensive, convenient and clear solution for users, LEMKEN has, for the first time, successfully integrated the complete control of a hoeing machine, including the camera image and width sections into an ISOBUS system so that all controls are displayed on one CCI 800 or 1200 terminal

The position of the implement as well as the speed of the tractor are recorded by the ISOBUS system. Moreover, operation is possible either through the tractor's own joystick or the CCI joystick.

Enriched with camera information, the video image can be transmitted by the system using a standard ISO 17215 interface through Ethernet. In addition, the system is also ready for high-speed ISOBUS. 

Automatic over-the-air machine updates ensure that their machines are always up to date. Service technicians are also able to optimise settings remotely, during maintenance and troubleshooting. These updated settings can also be reviewed, since they are displayed in the camera image immediately after optimisation.
