Real time telemetry for tractors

Home Agriculture Real time telemetry for tractors

AN equipment-management solution that enables remote and real-time monitoring to any device is now available from Massey Ferguson.

MF Connect allows machine data to be used to make informed operational decisions about equipment performance, ensuring that preventative maintenance is conducted.

The system comes standard with a five-year free subscription on all new purchases of a new MF 8700 S model and as an optional extra for the MF 7700 S Models.

“The MF 8700 S series is ideal for agricultural customers looking for a high horsepower, precision farming tractor with inspired design and optimised efficiency,” the company said in a statement, adding that the MF 7700 S series tractors are “designed and built to meet the needs of professional farmers across all sectors from livestock to arable, mixed, and contracting”.

Machine data is collected and evaluated via MF Connect to allow farmers and contractors to monitor, analyse, and optimise the condition and use of their machines, as well as optimise work efficiency and minimise downtime.

“Mobile data transmission means that real-time machine data is retrievable anywhere – from the office desktop, tablet, or smartphone.”
