BS ISO 11787:1995
This standard BS ISO 11787:1995 Machinery for agriculture and forestry. Data interchange between management computer and process computers. Data interchange syntax is classified in these ICS categories:
- 65.060.99 Other agricultural machines and equipment
This International Standard provides the means to enable communication between on-farm process computers of stationary and mobile agricultural equipment or machinery, and management computers. It therefore specifies an Agricultural Data Interchange Syntax (ADIS), to exchange data electronically. It implies that the syntax is not intended for real-time data exchange.
ADIS may be used (see figure 1) for direct data exchange between process computer and management program.
ADIS may also be used for data exchange between process computer and interface software of the process computer on the PC.
Alternatively for this exchange, manufacturer-specific methods can be and are used for data exchange between the interface software for the process computer on the PC and the management program.
NOTE 2 This does not mean that ADIS cannot be used for other data interchange. Many farmers use a method similar to ADIS to exchange data between management computers and external computers: ADIS can be used for data interchange to external computers. ADIS can also be used to exchange data between independent software applications used on a management computer.
Figure 1 ADIS application possibilities
NOTE — Interface software is a communication program for the process computer that runs on the management computer. It takes care of the data exchange, and creates and reads the ADIS file(s).
