Wireless tech brings many benefits

Case IH owners will now able to make more informed farm management decisions – based on both real-time and historic data generated by their machines.

This comes with the launch of AFS Connect, a subscription-based telemetry package which integrates proven elements of Case IH Advanced Farming Systems technology to link fields, machines and data.

AFS Connect features fleet and data management, allowing users to monitor and manipulate from any desktop or smart device tablet using the mycaseih website and app.

To use the system, users need to arrange an AFS Connect subscription – which provides an unlock code and a modem. 

In the cab, AFS Connect works with the latest AFS 1200 operating terminal. Once work is underway, the system allows the viewing of live data showing machine location and work completed.

Additional information ensures the machines stay in designated areas, preventing mistakes, theft – as well as fuel monitoring.

The new AFS Connect System is due for release in New Zealand in early 2020, with the availability to be fitted to the Maxxum, Puma, Optum, Magnum, Steiger and Quadtrac tractors, and Axial-Flow combine ranges.
