ISOBUS functionalities are by now as manifold as the agricultural practice. The AEF-Database aims to make transparent for customers both compatibility and feature scope of tractor/implement combinations. Already today, for many customers this information is the deciding factor for making a purchase. The AEF certificate is the basis for featuring your device in the AEF-Database. Do not hesitate any longer - on behalf of and audited by the AEF the ISOBUS Test Center is your competent and independant partner for the certification of ISOBUS equipment.

  • Consulting

    Let our ISOBUS experts accompany you from the early stages of your development process onward. Regarding the Hardware sector we can help to prevent long and cost-intensive re-designs. Software developers may benefit from our expertise to implement ISOBUS compatible machine software. Detailed test reporting and useful hints help you to achieve the AEF-Certification without detours or delays.

  • AEF-Certification

    We test hard- and software according to AEF guidelines for compatibility with the ISOBUS standard. All occuring errors and deviations from the standard are explained in detail and we help in finding a solution. The certification is performed in our modern laboratories or directly on-site – at a fair price!

  • agrirouter-Certification

    We test telemetry units for conformity with the agrirouter in accordance with the DKE specifications. In this way, we ensure that the agrirouter protocol has been successfully implemented and that the unit communicates with the agrirouter. The test must be carried out every time the capabilities of the telemetry box are changed, either at the ITC or, if you prefer, at your premises.

All services offered are rendered in full by ITC, i.e. tests will not be subcontracted. Hardware tests are performed on basis of ISO11783-2 Physical Layer:2019, as modified and/or complemented by the requirements of the AEF CT Protocol ISO11783-02 ECU 2.0 v2.6. The current guidelines for agrirouter tests can be requested from DKE GmbH.

AEF Conformance test

5 steps to an AEF-certificate…

You can request the AEF conformance test in the AEF-Database at the URL The database requires for your device an SUT description created with the SUT Description Tool. If you have any questions regarding the SUT description we are pleased to offer our help.

Finalise your software by adding the necessary diagnostic data which you receive when requesting an AEF conformance test.

We provide several possibilities to perform a test. Choose the option best suited to your needs:

  • The test is performed in your presence at the Test Center. In case minor errors occur you can analyze and fix them on-the-fly.
  • You can send in your device. In a preparatory talk we obtain necessary additional information. We guarantee 100% confidential handling of both your device and your data.
  • We can perform the conformance test on-site and will bring all necessary test equipment.

After you choose one of the above options and make an appointment with us, testing can commence.

We perform the hard- and software tests of your choice and upon success make the test results available in the AEF-Database.
You will receive a detailled test report from the ISOBUS Test Center and an official AEF certificate for download from the AEF-Database.

You may now activate the test result in the AEF-Database. Your certified equipment is then immediately visible to all users of the AEF-Database, i.e. to manufacturers, dealers and – above all – to your customers!
