TTConnect Cloud Service platform is certified for agrirouter integration

In the past, farmers and contractors with a diverse fleet and implement pool from various manufacturers were not able to bundle machinery data on a single platform. This was solved by the agrirouter cross-manufacturer solution. Data can be easily exchanged between machinery and implements and agricultural software tools. Now, TTControl’s IoT solution TTConnect Cloud Service has been agrirouter-certified, making the service future-proof for agricultural machinery OEMs. Mobile machinery transmitting data to TTControl’s cloud service can connect to the agrirouter data exchange platform while ensuring maximum data security. This includes data like fuel consumption, electro-hydraulic machine data and oil status, […]

HY-TTC 500 controller family certified for road use under ISO 26262

Testing and validation processes typically account for 20 to 30 percent of development costs. The certification of TTControl’s off-the-shelf electronic control units reduces these costs and enables faster time to market. The ISO 26262:2018 certification allows the use of the electronic controllers designed for rough operating conditions in road vehicle electrical and electronic (E/E) systems. TÜV Nord certified the functional safety and compliance with the ASIL C integrity level of the HY-TTC 500 electronic controller family when programmed in C. “Drivers of trucks and busses, as well as mobile machinery used on roads, such as firefighting vehicles, garbage trucks […]

Development close to the customer premiered at Agritechnica 2019

Electronics are increasingly becoming a decisive factor in agriculture. To make agricultural machinery more efficient, productive, and safe, TTControl, together with Pöttinger, has developed another member of the HY-TTC 500 controller family. The controller was originally jointly designed for a customer-specific solution. Now it broadens TTControl’s portfolio of commercial off the shelf products. It aims to help professionals to work more safely, more reliably and to meet the market’s increasing requirements. TTControl presented the cooperative development for the first time at the Agritechnica in November 2019 in Hanover. “As a manufacturer of agricultural machinery, we know very well what […]

How to keep up with the evolving world of HMI

This article was first published in the iVT Magazine, Off-Highway Annual 2020, November 2019 By Arno Purkrabek, team lead product management at TTControl Our world is constantly moving, or as the Greek philosopher Heraclitus of Ephesus was quoted as saying, “everything changes and nothing remains still.” In our daily life, we are used to constant interaction with machines and tools such as smartphones and household appliances. The way we interact with these gadgets is changing. The same is true for the interaction of human operators with mobile machinery, like construction or agricultural vehicles such as excavators, wheel loaders and […]

Laying the foundations for today’s and tomorrow’s control applications in agriculture machinery

Today, agricultural vehicle and implement manufacturers need to incorporate more and more electronic devices and components into their machinery in order to increase efficiency and productivity while at the same time reducing fossil fuel dependency and pollutant emissions. To meet these challenges, OEMs expect complete solutions rather than single products from their suppliers. EN ISO 25119:2018 and ISOBUS OEMs face changing and increasing requirements regarding functional safety and must handle them adequately: An updated EN ISO 25119:2018 will be harmonized soon and will replace the current EN 16590:2014 as the safety standard for control systems in tractors and agricultural […]
