Automatic tracking system
BEST USED FOR:
• machine activity report
• work optimisation
• knowing exactly where machines are
iMETOS WorkTrack & iMETOS Beacon
Keeping your machinery and farm under full remote control
From tractors and harvesters to sprayers and mowers, there is a wide range of equipment used in farming. Agricultural machinery is complex by itself bringing a number of matters to consider for its managers like:
Knowing that spraying was done with the right speed, timely vehicle maintenance is one of them too and, luckily, iMETOS WorkTrack does it automatically to facilitate all these tasks.
Keeping agricultural equipment in good condition is vital.
Losing machines due to unexpected breakdowns can cause considerable losses and complications in scheduled operations. Moreover, using paper to keep records of the fleet’s scheduled maintenance is cumbersome and time consuming.
The chance of making mistakes cannot be ruled out either what can lead to overdue maintenance, disruptions in business and unforeseen expenses. In the worst-case scenarios, the safety of drivers can also be put at risk.
Knowing the weather conditions in the field and knowing when you can again enter it or how long the working window will be is another important challenge.
To avoid maintenance-related headache and making your life easier, iMETOS WorkTrack can offer a solution to the previously-mentioned problems. The process of fleet maintenance can be automated with the help of the iMETOS WorkTrack GPS tracking devices and automatically displayed and stored on the Fieldclimate platform.
Tracking maintenance schedules becomes trouble-free by setting reminders when the vehicles need service based on:
Together with the iMETOS Beacon, which is permanently mounted on the implements and automatically paired with the closest iMETOS WorkTrack when attached for the work.
Fieldclimate will automatically know which tractor was used with which implement hence fully automatic tracking and tracing is done. Whenever the tractor is starting the data will be sent instantly to FieldClimate and information about position, working speed, which machine is on the tractor and unexpected faults will be sent to the manager, so they could be solved fast.
When combining the iMETOS WorkTrack in FieldClimate with local weather forecast data and even soil characteristics the solution becomes even stronger as you can plan when to enter the field with your machinery. METOS® weather stations deliver the local soil and weather data.
HOW DO THEY WORK TOGETHER?
The fast connection between the two:
You can connect up to 20 iMETOS Beacons to one iMETOS WorkTrack without worrying about running out of data storage in FieldClimate.
You simply mount the iMETOS WorkTrack on your tractor and each iMETOS Beacon to the device, vehicle or any other machine you want tracking.
