Camso Inc. says it is helping farmers take a huge leap forward with its new, patent-pending smart track technology.

“As the leader in track development, we’re committed to redefining the industry standard and engineering products that respond to the evolution of farming equipment," says Martin Lunkenbein, service and aftermarket sales executive director for agriculture at Camso. "The market is heading toward more specialized applications, toward larger, heavier and faster machines, and toward greater productivity. We offer the broadest range of tracks in the industry and keep expanding our range to meet the needs of the market. New technology releases such as smart tracks demonstrate our commitment to develop solutions that advance a farmer’s operation in terms of efficiency, and productivity."

Camso’s first chapter of smart track technology involves high speed roading. “With higher roading speeds and fields farther away from each other, farmers are looking to operate at maximum transport efficiency. Our integrated solution allows for optimal machine speed while avoiding heat build-up, which can cause premature track damage,” says Lunkenbein.

Camso’s technology employs a temperature sensor embedded in the track. If the track reaches high temperature levels, the sensor sends a signal to the tractor, ensuring that speed is readily adjusted to protect the track investment.

The company says the smart roading solution is its "first of many smart track applications." The new tracks debuted at Agritechnica.
