Logging Harvesting Machine J1939 Data Across a Harvest Season
Case Studies / Tribine
About: Tribine innovates in the design and engineering of harvesting systems, from the cleaning systems to the farmer's cab experience - recently with the released T1000 Harvester
What problem did you solve?
I was looking for a cost-effective and easily available device to log J1939 input and output data for developing a harvesting machine. Other options which I had worked with in the past had long lead times, high cost, and expensive restricted licenses
How did you solve it?
We installed a CL2000 in each of our development machines for the entire harvest season. The CL2000 allowed me to diagnose countless deficiencies in both mechanical and electronic systems by letting me see real time CAN data and the relations between inputs, commands and responses. Most importantly, it was easily used in the field with minimal setup and without requiring a dedicated computer.
"The CL2000 can be left in the machine all of the time - and the price lets us buy enough units to truly utilize this ability"
What BENEFIT has this led to?
As a startup, the low cost and free licenses allowed us to purchase and use more than one device so we can monitor more machines across multiple locations simultaneously. With other devices on the market, we would be limited to a single logging tool. Further, logging the CAN bus all of the time allows us to more effectively diagnose problems and deficiencies almost instantly without guesswork
Why did you choose the CLX000?
Simplicity and cost were the main driving factors to purchase this device
