When you have multiple machines in the field, you want them to work together and share information. Sharing data between machines can help multiple machines get working faster and collect data more consistently by sharing setup information such as Client, Farm, Field, Guidance Lines, Crop Type, Products and Tank Mixes. Work data such as yield maps and as applied rate maps can be shared between machines every 30 seconds and machine location every 6 seconds.
NOTE: Data transfer times can vary depending on strength of data connection. In Field Data Sharing (IFDS) is an additional option on the 4600 and 4640 displays. IFDS is not available on 4200 and 4240 displays.
3 machines working together with In Field Data Sharing.
Get multiple machines going faster and more accurately
When you have multiple machines in the field it can be difficult to get everyone set up to use the right guidance lines and collecting data consistently. In Field Data Sharing allows the lead operator to share setup information with all other operators, enabling everyone to use the same information in the field.
Trigger functions like Section Control from multiple machines
When there are multiple machines is a field it can be difficult to know where someone else has been. With Infield Data Sharing you can not only see where other machines have been, but Section Control will also turn on and off based on where the other machines have been, meaning you aren’t wasting products or over applying.
Monitor the quality of work all operators are doing
If you have a lead operator, they can monitor the quality of work other operators are doing. If they see an issue, they can correct it quickly.
