Electrical Remote Controls for Tractor-Implement Systems 710703
A new electrical remote control system has been developed to solve an existing control compatibility problem in agricultural machinery caused by the trend toward larger tractors and implements and adoption of the tractor cab. This control system consists of a tractor mounted control box and one or more implement mounted actuators that provide remote monitoring and control of implement functions from the tractor operstor's station. The control box and actuators are coupled by a multiterminal connector that has potential for standardization. This portable control system has value to the user in that it affords a new measure of comfort in more compatible tractor-implement operation.
