CLAAS has an API which allows farmers and contractors to connect data from their CLAAS 远程信息处理 machines to their farm management software. The CLAAS API is a function of 远程信息处理 and can be used with any connected CLAAS machine, 不管它的建造年份.
There's no need to make any changes to the machine. To share your machine data with your farm management system via the CLAAS API, all you need is an active 远程信息处理 license and the supplementary automatic documentation license. Your local CLAAS dealer will help you activate the license.
Exchanges specific field data in ISOXML format
What data can be transferred via the CLAAS API?
Once the customer has authorized the data exchange, the CLAAS API enables the farm management software (FMIS) to exchange date with 远程信息处理. All key agronomic and machine data can be shared.
It is technically impossible for a partner FMIS to access customer data without prior consent. 所以你的同意是必须的. This safeguard ensures that all sensitive data are protected at all times.
The FMIS is responsible for how the data is used and displayed in their system. To be certain that automatic data exchange via the CLAAS API meets your specific farm requirements, it is advisable to check the capabilities of the FMIS beforehand.
The CLAAS API basically offers the following functions:
The field boundaries in the FMIS and in 远程信息处理 can be synchronized by the partner system. This ensures that 远程信息处理 always shows the correct field boundaries. The partner system can make use of the synchronization in both directions:
The farm management software changes and supplements the field boundaries in 远程信息处理.
The FMIS reads the field boundaries in 远程信息处理 and adds them to its own database.
As before, all yield data can be viewed in 远程信息处理. Including the crop type that was harvested, 收益率, the moisture level or the readings from the NIR sensor. Data from attached implements such as the application rate of a seed drill or the crop yield of a CLAAS QUADRANT can also be displayed if these implements and the tractor are connected to 远程信息处理. The CLAAS API shares these data with the FMIS which documents and assigns them to the relevant field. 除了, 该活动, duration of 该活动 and other documentation data can be transferred to the FMIS. There are two different presentation modes:
每个字段的总数和平均值，e.g. total yield in bushels per field and average yield per field in bu/ac.
Individual yield points including their relevant position in the field. The yield map is created by the The FMIS creates a yield map which may incorporate other functions, 取决于系统.
How is the 远程信息处理 account linked to the FMIS account?
The CLAAS API is always controlled from the FMIS. Accordingly, it must be connected through the FMIS. How this connection is initiated depends on the relevant farm management software.
在远程信息处理, you can see whether a connection has been established in the "管理" menu under the subfield "Couplings". The connection to the FMIS via the CLAAS API and the associated data are displayed in the table "Outgoing couplings". Click on the cog icon to edit or delete connections. If the connection to 远程信息处理 is deleted, the FMIS can no longer access data from the 远程信息处理 account.
