What is ISOBUS?
ISOBUS is the most effective technology for the electronic control of agricultural machinery.
ISOBUS derives from the implementation of an international norm (ISO 11783) that outlines a communication standard between agricultural and forestry machinery and the implements connected.
ISOBUS turns implements into “Plug & Play” devices, making the dialogue between the VT and the implement possible without the need for additional controls or proprietary displays.

RE:Lab’s ISOBUS STACK main features:
- APIs to interact with the Stack and trigger desired functionalities
- It is a software library developed in C, and can be integrated into C and/or C++ Client’s projects;
- It is independent from the hardware platform, supporting all microcontrollers architectures and endianness – Little/Big endian
- It can be integrated with Client’s CAN driver e/o operating system (e.g.: Linux, FreeRTOS)
- It is implemented according to Software Requirement Levels (SRL-1)
- Compatible with all commercial tools for ISOBUS object pools development (e.g.: DLG pConvert, ISO-Designer, vt-designer)
- It can be customized according to the Client-required AEF functionalities.
- Documentation and integration guidelines are available.
ISO11783 / AEF compliance:

- Since 2008, RE:Lab offers its ISOBUS STACK software as a library to be integrated on the Clients’ hardware
- RE:Lab ISOBUS STACK can be integrated into the Client's pre-existing hardware or in a new one
- In this way RE:Lab guarantees an immediate and transparent update in case of normative amendments
- Supply and porting of RE:Lab ISOBUS Stack for clients’ ECU
- Custom software development service for the HMI ISOBUS object pool and the clients’ ECU
- Custom support to ensure the ECU complies with AEF Conformance Test
- After porting, support towards validation and production
