AGCO’s AGCOMMAND system is aleading-edge data recording tool that helpsusers optimize fleet performance, monitoroperating costs and generate reports.How Agcommand WorksThe AGCOMMAND system collects GNSS(Global Navigation Satellite System) satellitelocation and machine performance dataevery 60 seconds in the Standard Pluspackage and every 10 seconds in theAdvanced package. This allows users to seewhere machines are, where they have beenand the data collected at each interval.Data CollectionMachine performance data is collectedfrom the vehicle’s CAN Bus. This datais then transferred via a GPRS cellularmodem. Access to the stored data isobtained by logging into a secure andeasy-to-use website.Benefits Of AGCOMMANDUtilizing this information will help managersanalyze vehicle efficiency, maximizeproductivity and increase profitability.The Universal Installation Kit allowsAGCOMMAND to be fitted to any piece ofmachinery in a fleet, regardless of brand.Optimum performanceAGCOMMAND organizes information anddevelops detailed reports that track enginehours, fuel consumption, operator efficiencyand field-specific machine information. Bycollecting and summarizing this information,the system promotes accountability to helpoptimize performance.MaintenanceAGCOMMAND makes maintenance easierto plan and track. Service alerts can be setto signal maintenance intervals. Alerts canalso be set to notify your dealer for fasterservice response time.Geo-fencing and logisticsGeo-fences, or virtual GPS boundaries, canbe created to track when machines enteror exit designated areas. Tracking logisticsenables the user to anticipate routine taskslike refueling. To help reduce downtime, thesystem plots a machine’s exact position onthe map so it can be quickly located.Internal MemoryIf a machine leaves a GPRS coveragearea, the onboard module will record itslocation and performance data for up to 50hours and transfer the information once themachine reenters a coverage area.EfficiencyManagers using AGCOMMAND can monitormultiple fleets from off-site locations. Operationsthat have numerous locations and projectscan utilize logistics to minimize downtimeby having instant tractor performance data.
