A small, low-priced Isobus terminal from Müller-Elektronik, Smart 430, controls a range of compliant implements at the simpler end of the sophistication scale.
The Smart 430 comes with an 11cm (4.3in) colour display showing the typical functions available with implements equipped with an Isobus-compliant job computer carrying the required software for selected operations and data icons.
Unlike the touchscreen operation of larger units, the Smart 430 is operated using the softkeys and menu buttons arranged around the perimeter of the display.
On the back of the device, there are two M12 plug sockets for connecting the tractor CAN-Bus, as well as sensor inputs for recording the working speed and the working position. The unit has AEF certified functionality as an Isobus Universal Terminal (UT) and Auxiliary Control (AUX-N), which means it can be connected to compliant control devices such as a joystick with user-allocated axis and button functions.
Muller-Elektronik says the design is to IP66 standard, being splash-proof and capable of operating within the extended temperature range of -20C to 70C. The Smart 430 comes with a mounting bracket and is available with a cable for connecting to a Muller-Elektronik basic vehicle harness or the installed Isobus basic vehicle harness.
Cabling for tractors not equipped with Isobus infrastructure is also available.
