MyRopa and R-Connect: Beet in the Cloud

Initially developed by root harvesting specialists Ropa in 2018, the company’s R-Connect online data logging system has since seen further refinements and developments, with unnecessary elements trimmed and new features added. Here we catch up with the latest version.

Since R-Connect was launched in 2018, Ropa beet harvesters and loaders have had the ability to send operational data to ‘the cloud’, with current Tiger 6S, Panther 2S and Maus 6 harvesters having this integration as standard. Most of the data collected by sensors is sent to servers in Germany, with the aim of tracking the company’s harvesters in a manner that will help provide full operational data and potentially a ‘heads up’ if a service problem is likely to crop up (see user testimonial).
