Kinze, Raven partner on Next Generation Planter Solutions

10 Sep 2023

imageKinze® Manufacturing, Inc. announces a partnership with Raven Industries to develop a standalone monitor solution for the Kinze 4900 series planter. With this new monitor, Kinze and Raven have partnered to develop the software and its integration with the planter, with the goal of eliminating reliance on ISOBUS and other manufacturers’ software.

In addition to the standalone monitor solution, Kinze’s plan is to have the 4900 planter also support ISOBUS virtual terminals that meet Kinze’s requirements and pass Kinze's qualification tests. While features of the monitor are currently in development, the current plan is to include:

  • A customizable screen layout to show only the information the farmer wants to see
  • A “screen within a screen” feature giving the ability to monitor mapping and field coverage area as well as planter functions at the same time
  • A dedicated CANbus line to eliminate issues from overloading the CANbus with too many components
