The Varioterminal is unique in the fact that all functions are united together in one terminal for both tractor and implement controls, eliminating the need for additional monitors. The terminal is fully ISOBUS-certified by AEF (Agricultural Electronics Foundation) and available in 7-inch and 10.4-inch screen sizes. Among these intelligent features include: VarioGuideTM automatic steering system, camera function, VarioDoc documentation system, SectionControl and VariotronicTM. The VarioGuide automatic steering system allows for precise driving in conditions of poor visibility and makes it is possible to work longer periods of time in the tractor, day or night. Headland management is fully integrated into every Varioterminal and clearly laid out in the display. Variotronic allows operators to activate automated operating sequences with just a touch of a button while working in the headlands or making passes in the field. In addition, the VarioDoc documentation system features wireless transfer of all task data quickly and securely. The Fendt 500 is among AGCO’s top of the line high-end technology machines, powered by AGCO’s Fuse® precision agriculture products and services.
"Ultimately, all this technology will give the operator the ability to use the machine for optimum performance and the ability to turn his or her attention to other management decisions away from the setting and adjustments of the machines,” says Mr. Keeney.
