Camera systems on combine harvesters normally consist of two cameras: A camera on the drainage pipe provides images of the trailer, a reversing camera provides additional safety when travelling on-road. It is automatically switched on as soon as the driver reverses. The view angle is selected such that the cameras can record as wide a view area as possible but at the same time provide accurate, distortion-free images.
A camera on the drainage pipe of the chopper points at the discharge chute and the trailer. The camera images can be send from the driver's cabin to other tractors by wireless.
Camera systems on beet lifters generally consist of up to three cameras. They record the area behind the machines. The internal cameras point at the star screen and the conveyor belts. The cameras, monitor and cables are particularly sturdy and designed to withstand the hard working conditions in the wind and all weathers.
Rear area systems relieve the tractor driver of demanding tasks and contribute to a healthy working posture. No more turning around for the driver, they have a clear view of everything. The camera has a wide angle of 90° and is fitted to the cabin roof to record the area behind the tractor. Additional cameras can be added to the system, for example to monitor the trailer or other attachments.
