AgJunction has announced the release of its Advanced Task Controller for ISOBUS. ISOBUS is the industry's most widely accepted and utilized electronic communication standard.

Last Fall AgJunction announced the addition of the Virtual Terminal feature for Outback MAX to support ISOBUS implement control. This latest Advanced Task Controller release complements that functionality by now supporting automatic section control and rate control for compatible ISOBUS ready implements such as planters and seeders.

"Our Advanced Task Controller provides a broader range of implement control options and significantly increases our support for ISO-compatible equipment," said Rick Heiniger, President and CEO of AgJunction. "The Outback MAX was designed to receive increased functionality and compatibility over time, broadening its application and appeal to an ever wider customer base. Today, Outback MAX works with the nearly all implements and brands."

In addition to the Advanced Task Controller features, Outback MAX will now have the added convenience of being WiFi-enabled. This feature supports WiFi tethering between a user's existing smartphone or MiFi device and Outback MAX allowing for data transfer, Internet access, and receipt of RTK corrections utilizing existing data packages.

The Outback MAX ISOBUS Advanced Task Controller will be available for purchase March 31st, 2014 through Outback Guidance Centers and through AgJunction distributors worldwide. Upgrade kits are available for the ISOBUS Virtual Terminal and Advanced Task Controller functionality along with hardware kits for non ISO ready vehicles.
