A control panel for New Holland's specialized tractors

News – October 2023

New Holland, a leader in the design of specialized tractors, is currently using one of our Switch Control Panels to control certain vehicle functions via the CAN network.

The Switch Control Panel is equipped with 10 push-buttons - used in the specialized tractors to manage end-of-field maneuvers or to control the suspension or front and rear hitches - and status LEDs to show the actual activation of the controls.

The Switch Control Panel was designed by our R&D in keeping with the requirements of New Holland, a brand of CNH Industrial, respecting the design of other in-vehicle control panels in order to adhere to the line's family feeling. It is designed with an IP54 rating to operate in the hostile environments typical of the agricultural world and is distinguished by its small size that facilitates its placement in the cab next to the armrest. 

The compact size, versatility, and ease of installation of the Switch Control Panel have been highly valued by CNH Industrial, so much so that the manufacturer has asked our company to further develop the product for use on future applications. The module upgrade will require changes in the hardware while maintaining the same geometry, with a new keypad and processor, to include some safety features.

A variant of the 10-push-button Control Panel is also available in our off-the-shelf offer. The product, designed in both the horizontal and vertical versions, will come with a neutral keyboard which can be completed with laser printing of the icons requested by the customer. The keyboard, like most of our OTS electronic products, can be managed with our proprietary software MTAStudio®
