What is ISOBUS?

Ag equipment manufacturers around the world have agreed on ISOBUS as the universal protocol for electronic communication between implements, tractors and computers. The primary goal of ISOBUS data technology is to standardize the communication which takes place between tractors and implements while ensuring full compatibility of data transfer between the mobile systems and the office software used on the farm. The basis is the international ISO 11783 standard – “Tractors and machinery for agriculture and forestry – Serial control and communications data network”.
