of your tractor and harvesting fleet with AgCommand
Economical and easy to install, Agcommand enables users to remotely monitor the location and working status of their agricultural machinery. Essential data is logged and transmitted via a mobile phone modem to an Internet server. The fleet owner or manager can then connect to the server to view up-to-date information, including engine status, fuel consumption, water temperature, vehicle location, speed and hours of work. This can be done from the office or in the field, using any desktop, laptop or iPhone connected to the Internet.
The benefits of having real time knowledge of your machines are many. You can minimise downtime by scheduling servicing and maintenance, increase machine security with the in-built tracker and alarm facility, organise fleets of carting tractors to make sure that all of your harvesters are kept working, not waiting. Agcommand can send alarms directly to a mobile phone or email inbox, for example, you could set alarms to alert you when engine functions are out of range, such as low oil pressure or high water temperature. Or you could set the system to send an alarm if the machine leaves a pre-defined geographical boundary, such as the farm-yard at night.
records can be produced and users enjoy ready access to service information,
such as oil and filter changes.
Additionally, owners can give their AGCO dealer
access to the machines’ status and records, so their dealer can monitor
the health of the vehicles or organise scheduled routine
Along with status information, Agcommand also provides location information. Utilising Google Maps technology, the location of all machines can be viewed in map view, satellite view or a combination of both. Data on forward speed, engine hours and current direction of travel is also recorded. On top of this, the Agcommand website is very user-friendly and allows owners to keep track of several fleets at once and all the machines in each fleet.
Agcommand system is simple to install and carries AGCO Corporation’s
comprehensive warranty. There are three components: the AM50
module, which contains all the electronics, a GPS antenna, and a mounting
bracket. Simply plug and play into AGCO factory ‘Agcommand ready’ machines
or retro-fit kit is available to fit to any existing machine regardless
of make or model.
