The Vicon RotaFlow RS-EDW fertiliser spreader is the first implement in the world to be accredited as compatible with the ISOBUS system.

Vicon is distributed in Australia by Kverneland Group Australia , along with its other brands Taarup, Accord, RAU, Kverneland, Gregoire and Vinestar.

ISOBUS is the new international system which standardises data communications between tractor, implement and farm management.

It enables the exchange of data on a worldwide scale, by allowing the electronic controller in a suitably equipped tractor to operate compatible implements from any manufacturer.

By passing the test, the Kverneland Group's Tellus terminal has proven that it is fully compliant with ISOBUS standard (ISO 11783).

Adoption of the new standard by manufacturers will provide major benefits to farmers.

It will eliminate the necessity of multiple controllers and the attendant need for operator competence on each one.

Farmers will simply plug their implement into the tractor, identify the implement type and go to work. Operating principles will be identical from one combination to the next.

The result is lower cost and simplified operation of high specification implements.

Allowing machine diagnosis and repair directly on site, it has demonstrated enormous benefits in the field for farmers and service people.

Diagnostic requirements were integrated into the standards provisions along with other important aspects.

ISOBUS gives farmers the assurance that their investment has a future.

The Kverneland Group is leading the way in the introduction of ISOBUS technology to commercial farming practice.

The Tellus system has been developed by Kverneland Group Mechatronics, the dedicated development and production centre for electronics and mechatronics based in the Netherlands.

This 'centre of excellence' pioneered the introduction of electronics in agriculture in the 1980?s and has won several innovation awards over the past two decades.
