HELUKABEL, one of the leading global manufacturers and suppliers of cable, wires and accessories, has introduced the ISOBUS PUR hybrid power and data cable for use in the agriculture industry. This cable connects tractors, combines, sprayers and other farm vehicles to their implements at the front or rear of the machine.
The ISOBUS PUR is built to the worldwide ISO 11783 standard that governs the communication between agriculture machinery, mainly tractors and implements. ISOBUS areas of application include: wheel sensors, auto steer and turnaround, GPS navigation, row guidance, equipment monitoring and sensors, video input, as well as fleet management to name a few.
The PUR-jacketed hybrid cable can operate in environments ranging in temperature from -40°C to +85°C, application dependent. Additionally, the ISOBUS PUR’s rugged outer jacket can withstand oil, abrasion, UV rays, microbes, and is flame retardant.
HELUKABEL currently offers three configurations for agriculture OEMs, but can also provide additional custom constructions upon request. The three standard configurations are:
PN: 17001249 – 2xAWG10 + 2xAWG14 + 1x4xAWG20 (2x6 mm2 + 2x2.5 mm2 + 1x4x0.5 mm2)
PN: 17001250 – 2xAWG8 + 2xAWG14 + 1x4xAWG20 (2x10 mm2 + 2x2.5 mm2 + 1x4x0.5 mm2)
