Drives for agricultural technology

Agriculture on the move

Farmland is a scarce resource. While the population is growing unstoppably,
the quantity of agriculturally usable areas remains near-constant.

Since the use of renewable energies from agricultural products is increasing and taking up more and more farmland in addition to food production, agricultural production must nearly double in the next twenty years. Our drives for agricultural technology support this progress and help secure the future supply of agricultural goods. KAG drives are designed specifically for the rough areas in agriculture. The motors, usually designed for 12 V, have high degrees of protection, which makes it possible to use them outdoors easily and also allows cleaning them with high-pressure water.

Special surface refinement protects the drives from aggressive media, such as fertilisers or hydraulic oil. On request, the drives can be painted to the customer’s CI colors and specifications.

To meet the request of digitalisation in agriculture, we have dealt with decentralised, bus-capable drives early on and now offer diverse solutions for brushed and brushless motors. Our CAN-bus-capable electronic circuits can be controlled via the standardised protocols CANopen and J1939 protocol or via special protocols. Additionally, we can integrate the external measuring data and monitoring functions of the system into electronics.

The use of special cables, such as hybrid cables with robust connectors in the high protection class simplifies connecting enormously and is ready to face nearly any demand.

Use of the most modern drives
