New Holland has announced some major upgrades to its PLM Connect telematics system, which are scheduled to come into affect this spring. Customers will now be able to wirelessly transfer a variety of real-time data between machines and the farm office via the cloud-based PLM Connect portal.
The upgraded PLM Connect features will allow machines to be monitored from the farm office, and settings or operating instructions can be sent to an operator in real time. It also further increases the degree of interaction that is possible between the machine working in the field and the farm office, making wireless transfer of data, such as yield maps, fuel usage and job status, between the machine and the cloud-based PLM Connect portal possible. The information can then be accessed by the farm manager on a PC or tablet.
