Press release -
BPW AGRO Hub now available with weighing system
- Running gear mileage at a glance
- New weighing system for simplified invoicing of services
- Automatic reminders of maintenance intervals
Szombathely, 26 October 2017 --- The BPW Group's agricultural specialists have further developed the AGRO Hub running gear computer and integrated an innovative weighing system that will be presented at Agritechnica in November. The trade fair takes place in Hanover from 12 until 18 November 2017, and BPW will be exhibiting its innovations in hall 15, stand E05.
With the BPW AGRO Hub, customers in the agricultural industry receive a detailed overview of the mileage of the running gears installed in their agricultural trailers. Sensors allow the daily as well as the overall mileage to be calculated in hours and kilometres. A new feature is the integration of additional axle load sensors, allowing the vehicle operator to record and store the weight of the trailer. "The sensors accurately measure the weight of a trailer to within approximately two percent. Many of our customers in the agricultural industry currently invoice their services according to weight. With our new weighing system, we can offer them a particularly cost-effective solution," explains Peter Lindner, Agricultural Sales Manager for Germany and Benelux.
By analysing these data, e.g. as a histogram, vehicle usage can be documented quickly and easily. The information can be transferred wirelessly to Android smartphones using the BPW AGRO app, and now also to the machine's display unit via ISOBUS communication channels. This way, BPW guarantees a secure connection between trailer and tractor, and makes sure that the driver always has the running gear information in view.
And the AGRO Hub offers yet another advantage: the running gear computer uses warning signals as an automatic reminder of predetermined maintenance intervals, which optimises trailer operation.
Agritechnica visitors can obtain more information on the new products and features at BPW's stand E05 in hall 15.
