New CIS+ specification option for the AXION 800 and ARION 600/500 ranges and new touchscreen Cebis available

Claas has added a new additional package available on Axion 800 and Arion 600/ 500 range to complement the proven, mechanical spool, CIS system and the new premium Cebis touch. The new CIS+ is aimed at customers looking for the additional comfort of electronic spool valves, without the need for the level of technology offered on the new CEBIS touch.

The new CIS+ system has an extremely clear layout and is very user-friendly, with many new, convenient functions. These include a Drivestick to operate the Cmatic or Hexashift transmission, an Electropiot four-way control lever with direction change, and the integrated 7-inch CIS colour display for viewing and configuring all the main machine functions.

CIS+ with continuously variable CMATIC transmission

With CIS+, the proven, continuously variable Cmatic transmission is now available for the first time without the Cebis operating system. Using CIS+, the Cmatic transmission is controlled from the updated Drivestick in the armrest, which has proportional control, of transmission acceleration and deceleration.

When accelerator pedal mode is selected, the Drivestick can be used to manually intensify or reduce the engine braking effect. A cruise control button is also provided on the Drivestick. The current forward speed can be saved simply by pressing this button.

The convenient and highly efficient Hexashift transmission with the new Smart Stop function and cruise control are also available with the CIS+

Electropilot four-way control lever with integrated reverser

In addition, CIS+ offers the new, ergonomically shaped Electropilot four-way control lever which provides a high level of convenience, particularly for front loader work or in combined operations.

The hydraulic functions are controlled as before using the four-way control lever, while forward or reverse travel can be selected at the touch of a button. This means that the driver can, for example, carry out all the operations associated with front loader or buck rake work using just one lever.

Claas has also developed a new touch screen display version of the extremely user-friendly Cebis, that will be available for the first time in the new Axion 900 and Arion 600/500 tractor series. The new Cebis system includes the fully redesigned and high-resolution Cebis terminal which has a 12-inch touch screen display.

All new tractor models in the Axion 800 and Arion 600/500 series will now be available with a choice of the new Cebis or the equally new CIS+ system. Axion 800 and Arion 600/500 tractors will also be available in the CIS version. As well as the 12-inch touch screen display, the new Cebis system offers a completely new user interface with intuitive Direct Access. This equipment option also comes with a multifunction armrest with 10 freely assignable function buttons and the proven Cmotion multifunction control lever which can be operated using just three fingers.

Enter settings simply by touching the screen

The Cebis system includes a large, 12-inch colour screen with HD resolution which for the first time can be used as a touch display. The logical and familiar structure of the previous Cebis display has been deliberately retained and transferred to touch screen operation. However, the clearly arranged user interface with large icons has been completely redesigned to allow simple, intuitive operation by touch. All main tractor functions can be viewed at a glance and adjusted in just a few steps.

Reach your destination faster with DIRECT ACCESS

The Direct Access system provides extremely rapid access to many functions by means of a simplified picture of a tractor on the screen, known as the tractor silhouette. By touching the required function area, such as the PTO or engine, this opens the relevant dialogue window. The hydraulic spool valve settings can also be selected directly from the main screen.
