New Optum AFS Connect: comfort and connectivity enhanced to ease workload for both owner and operator

CASEIH_OPTUM_AFS_CONNECT_TILLAGE[4]

New cab, controls and connectivity among key areas of enhancement / All-new interior with the new Multicontroller armrest, configurable controls, AFS Pro 1200 monitor, tablet instrumentation / Instant data transfer and remote monitoring courtesy of AFS Connect /

The Case IH Optum CVXDrive tractor range – a strong seller for the brand since its 2015 introduction, on the back of its compact yet high-horsepower and high-specification design – has been re-engineered to create the new Optum AFS Connect range, with a new cab, interior and connectivity package designed to benefit both the operator and the owner.


Key among the changes, the new cab brings with it more space, lower noise levels and improved vision. There is a new Multicontroller armrest, configurable controls to allow the tractor and its implement to be adapted to the operator and the task, and upgraded luxurious interior materials. All of the changes have been designed to ease the operator’s workload, enhance efficiency, raise productivity and ultimately boost the bottom line of the business running the tractor.


Primary principles retained but refined


The Optum AFS Connect range, like the line-up it succeeds, contains three models, with rated power outputs of 250hp, 270hp and 300hp, all featuring the Case IH CVXDrive continuously-variable transmission. However, many of the rest of the tractors’ key design points are new. At their heart is a new cab in which a number of key areas of the interior have been completely redesigned. Many of these features are inherited from those established on the Optum AFS Connect’s larger Magnum cousins, which were upgraded to AFS Connect specification in 2019. They include the Multicontroller armrest and its multi-function lever, larger AFS Pro 1200 touchscreen monitor with greater functionality, and A-pillar tablet instrumentation for engine/transmission information read-outs. Meanwhile, the new tractors are now equipped as standard with the Case IH AFS Connect telematics package, for instant-two-way data transfer between tractor and online management portal, real-time machine monitoring and much more.


Key controls re-thought and re-designed: more intuitive and individual operation


One of the most prominent features of the new Optum AFS Connect range is the cab. Here, operators will find a larger interior with a volume increase of 7.5%, enhanced vision, courtesy of 11% more glass, and a noise level of just 66 decibels, helped in part by the premium materials in which the cab is now trimmed. All of this is designed for even safer, simpler and more enjoyable operation.


Inside, a prominent new feature is the all-new Multicontroller armrest, incorporating a new Multicontroller lever with configurable buttons. Via the new, larger AFS Pro 1200 monitor at the armrest’s front, key controls on the Multicontroller and armrest can be customised to suit operator preference and the job in hand, including the function buttons and remote valve paddle switches. The new ISOBUS-compatible AFS Pro 1200 touchscreen monitor has a high-resolution screen that not only allows the operator to monitor all primary tractor functions, but can also show front and rear camera feeds and is the key control gateway to operating and optimising the engine, the CVXDrive transmission and the tractor’s hydraulics and PTO. There are also short-cut keys and a new encoder turn-and-press dial on the new armrest, as established on the Magnum AFS Connect models.


Via the AFS Pro 1200 terminal, users can manage the tractor’s AccuGuide automated steering system and – for the first time in this Case IH tractor class – full AFS Connect telematics capabilities, technology which is well established on Case IH Magnum, Steiger and Quadtrac AFS Connect tractors. With this system of wireless two-way data transfer between the tractor and the AFS Connect online management portal, tractor owners and farm managers have complete control over farm, fleet and data management, to help minimise costs, enhance efficiency and maximise performance. Tractor performance and implement operating data are immediately, securely and continuously sent to the online portal for access by the tractor owner/manager. This allows them to make management decisions more precisely and with greater speed, supported by instantly-available and accurate data, both current and historical. They can also monitor real-time information such as the location of their tractors, their fuel levels and other key management and performance data. In this way it is possible to, for example, deliver diesel to a tractor as required, improve machine logistics or see if a job has been completed. As data transfer is possible both ways, job instructions, application maps and other data can also be sent remotely to the tractor from the farm office PC, using the ‘Farm’ tab in the AFS Connect web portal.


Farmers and – with permission – dealers can use AFS Connect Display Viewing to view the AFS screen display in real time as the driver is seeing it. For farmers/managers, this allows operating data to be checked and, if required, suggestions for adjustments to be made. Owners can choose to allow their Case IH dealer to remotely monitor their tractor’s AFS Pro 1200 terminal screen via AFS Connect, if they so wish. Potential advantages include dealer notification of early warning signs of a tractor fault or issue, remote service access, and the opportunity to provide operating advice based on machine data. Under this AFS Connect Support PRO package, firmware over the air capability means dealers can wirelessly update the operating firmware of Optum AFS Connect tractors, meaning owners and operators can then immediately benefit from new features, functionality and enhancements.

More comfort, enhanced control


To aid servicing before entering the new cab, the operator benefits from new integrated service aids including an air line at the rear. New step arrangement lead the way to a lighter and brighter cab interior, with more internal space and upgraded premium materials.


Many of the key controls with which the operator comes into regular contact have been completely re-thought. This includes a new Multicontroller armrest, complete with the redesigned Multicontroller multifunction lever and featuring remote valve switches incorporating pressure release for easier coupling. Among the other innovations incorporated into the new armrest and multifunction lever are buttons and hydraulic remote switches that are configurable according to operator preference and the requirements of the task. Via the AFS Pro 1200 terminal, each driver can set up the tractor exactly as desired, offering a personalised Optum AFS Connect operating experience.


That theme continues with the new AFS Pro 1200 terminal itself, which has a larger touchscreen than the former AFS Pro 700 unit, but is still sited within comfortable reach and sight at the head of the armrest. The terminal also incorporates more configurable settings, including a camera feed for front and rear cameras as specified. Many functions can be operated either via the touchscreen or via a new turn-and-press encoder dial on the armrest, for the same personalised operation.


From the operator’s seat, new external styling front and rear – such as lowered rear fenders – brings visibility benefits, while the four-pillar design of the cab, with full-length doors, also aids sight lines. The upper curved edge to the windscreen helps maximise natural light ingress, aids vision and a new low-mounted wiper design provides a 27% increase in cleared area. Night visibility can be enhanced by LED road and work light packages with up to 14 lights in the roof, four in the front of the cab, two on the rear fenders and six in the bonnet


Keeping the operator cool and refreshed

For winter warmth and summer cooling, operators now benefit from a new pressurised climate control package, with more outlets for enhanced air distribution, aided by auto-zone control. The use of premium soft interior automotive-style materials not only gives the inside of the cab a luxurious feel, but also plays a part in a reduction of noise levels down to an extremely low 66 decibels.


A high-specification seat incorporating lateral suspension features full cooling and heating capabilities, and has an upper swivelling backrest for easy and comfortable turning in the seat to monitor implements behind and when reversing. Meanwhile, the operating experience is further upgraded by a new drive pedal, which provides enhanced precision and control for slow-speed inching, field work with headland turns, and high-speed travel out on the road.


The greater cab volume and interior redesign also means Case IH designers have been able to incorporate more storage. To keep the driver refreshed on long days there is an integral coolbox under the passenger seat, with sufficient space not only for a lunchbox but also for a pair of two-litre bottles.


The need for any modern tractor to be able to support in-cab monitors and provide power for mobile phones and smart devices is met by a number of USB sockets, to ensure implement operation and connectivity is uncompromised.

Developments can bring AFS precision farming benefits within reach of smaller farms / Benefits enjoyed by larger businesses can be extrapolated / Significant savings in seed, fertiliser, fuel and time possible on both arable land and grass /



With the growing availability of modestly priced yet highly accurate precision farming technology, including auto-steering/guidance systems, tractor/implement headland management and automated headland turning, small and mid-sized farms across Europe could see relative returns on investment in precision farming equipment as significant as those made by larger farm businesses.


That’s the suggestion of Alessio Quatraro, connected services product manager with Case IH parent CNH Industrial. With costs of inputs such as fuel, fertiliser and crop protection products continuing to rise, and wastage having cost and environmental impacts, both cropping and grassland farms – regardless of their size – can quickly recoup the cost of specifying or adding precision technology when ordering or upgrading a tractor, he maintains.


“Reduction in overlapping from the use of guided steering offers potentially significant savings in fuel and inputs such as seeds and fertiliser,” points out Mr Quatraro.


“But there are further benefits to be gained. For example, automated steering systems controlled by GPS improve accuracy and safety at night or in poor visibility. For grassland work such as fertiliser spreading where previous passes are hard to detect and measure against, they also make pass-to-pass accuracy of application simple.


“The more accurate the GPS signal used, the greater are the potential benefits to be gained. While a basic GPS signal with 10-15cm repeatability will allow auto-steering systems to make parallel passes sufficiently accurate for tasks such as manure spreading, an RTK correction signal and the 2.5cm repeatability it provides offers the possibility of adopting controlled traffic, with the same tractor field paths used year-on-year, minimising soil compaction and maximising crop growth potential. RTK-guided auto-steering is particularly useful for the establishment and management of rowcrops such as maize/corn and roots, where precision seed placement and bout-matching are important for even growth and ease of harvesting, and are critical to inter-row weeding accuracy.


“RTK use also aids repeatability in crop establishment methods such as strip till, protecting structure and reducing fuel use.


“Not only does the pass-to-pass accuracy of GPS guided auto-steering reduce fuel consumption and improve work rates, but the reduction in tiredness and increase in focus means not only more productive but also safer operation, particularly important for those working alone.


“While adoption in recent years of precision farming technology has been widespread in large-scale arable farming, there is still huge scope for smaller and grassland-based farms to benefit from faster completion of tasks, greater efficiency and reduced operating and input costs, plus greater safety.”


Freedom to specify

Mr Quatraro cites the example of an owner-operator of a mid-sized tractor such as a Case IH Maxxum or Puma, common to mid-sized arable, mixed or livestock farms across Europe. Typically less likely to have been ordered with auto-steering, these tractors – and the implements they work with – could be significantly more productive for their owners if specified with such systems, he suggests.


“By specifying ‘AccuGuide-ready’ when ordering such a tractor it will come with the necessary electrical and hydraulic components.


“It’s then possible to either specify the AccuGuide components, minimising installation time – the AFS terminal, navigation controller and AFS 372 receiver – to be delivered installed on the tractor, or to add them at a later date.


“Alternatively, the AccuGuide-complete option means a new Case IH tractor comes fully equipped with AccuGuide from the factory, allowing the user to take full advantage of auto-guidance from the day of delivery, using the armrest-mounted AFS 700 terminal.”



Easier operation at headlands

Recent Case IH developments have combined the functions of the independent HMC II headland management and AccuTurn automatic headland turn systems to create AccuTurn Pro headland turn management, fully automating operations at bout ends and enhancing comfort and efficiency.


“With HMC II, once the driver has performed the simple process of programming a sequence of headland operations via time or distance – such as disengaging 4wd, raising the implement and switching off the PTO – a simple button press at the headland means all the programmed operations then occur automatically in sequence, with the reverse also possible when re-entering work. And it’s now possible to upgrade to AccuTurn Pro, which combines this with automated headland turning.”


The benefits of repeatability

Case IH AccuGuide-equipped tractors can receive a range of guidance correction, from the free EGNOS signal with its 20-25cm pass-to-pass repeatability, through Range Point RTX (15cm accuracy) to RTK + (2.5cm).


The repeatability provided by enhanced levels of accuracy also means that, for example, the same wheel tracks can be used when spreading fertiliser or liquid manure onto grassland, minimising trafficking of the land. Other possibilities include use of the same A-B lines when inter-row weeding a row crop that were originally set when it was established.


“Ultimately, there is a range of guidance technology that can bring benefits for small to medium-sized farms, particularly those with tractors run by owner-operators,” believes Mr Quatraro.


“These are systems that can return significant potential rewards for their investment. While there are multiple options, Case IH dealers are able to provide full help on the best way to calculate the returns possible from a potential investment in guidance.”
