The new touch-screen monitor has a nine inch display and was unveiled earlier this year at the SIMA show in Paris.
In the Massey tractors, the monitor will be called the Datatronic 5 while in the Challenger tractors it will be known as the Tractor Management Centre.
Developed by Massey Ferguson’s in-house team, the monitor is ISOBUS compatible and is similar in ease of use compared to devices such as tablets and smartphones.
The latest monitor is the fifth generation of the controller and will be fitted as standard on all new MF 8700 series tractors.
The nine-inch touch screen, which employs tablet and smartphone technology, enables operators to access and change settings quickly and instinctively. Using a single terminal operators can bring up virtual pages to set the hydraulics, transmission, engine and overall set-up and run the headland management system.
