The control of attachments on tractors with CAN bus simplifies commissioning and monitoring automation and networking of machines and work processes in agriculture are on the rise. Modern tractors are increasingly equipped with telemetry systems and wireless communication that allow the tractor and implements to be controlled and monitored remotely. This not only increases efficiency, but also offers the opportunity to further optimize productivity and crop yield.
HAWE Hydraulik supports manufacturers with state-of-the-art control systems with CAN bus from the modular system. The control of the various attachments has different requirements depending on the function. The hydraulic control with its high power density, dirt resistance and good price/performance ratio also scores with flexibility.
By pairing the hydraulic control with the electronic intelligence, e.g. in the directional control valve block of type PSL-CAN from HAWE Hydraulik, the entire valve block is connected to the on-board electrical system with just one plug. System feedback and parameter adjustments are carried out directly in the CAN head of the valve block, thus relieving the main control system and the bus system. Different sizes and actuators can be combined in one block. But also the combination of b/w switching control blocks with the proportional directional spool valve PSL in one valve bank are easily implemented from the modular system. This reduces costs and brings together exactly the controls that are required for each function. With the IP 67 protection class of the electrical connection, the valve bank is designed for use in harsh ambient conditions.
These electronic control systems make it possible to control the attachments via electrical signals from the cab or even to run them autonomously. This makes it possible to pre-select different settings and working modes in hydraulic controls. Sensors can also be integrated to record information about soil conditions, crop yields and other relevant parameters and pass them on to the main controller or control center. In self-regulating systems, the tractor can automatically react to changing conditions and improve work efficiency. The hydraulic controls offer many solutions for this, which are also energy-efficient and weight-optimized.
