ENTRY-LEVEL CONSOLES EXTEND THE TOPCON LINE-UP
Topcon has added two new entry-level touchscreens to its X-series range of precision farming implement control consoles.
The new Topcon XD (7”) and XD+ (12.1”) touchscreens, which are available in Great Britain via LH Agro, are compatible with the full range of Topcon crop health monitoring sensors, auto section controllers, auto-steer and headland turn functions, yield monitors, variable rate application controllers, Norac boom height controllers and Topcon’s latest Horizon 5 software, of which are designed to make the most basic and advanced precision farming operations easy to manage.
The new consoles are also compatible with Topcon’s XTEND app which enables users to use a tablet or smartphone as a wireless extension of the screen and to perform calibration, diagnostics, tank fill and many other functions either inside or outside the cab of the vehicle or machine. The XD and XD+ consoles are fully ISOBUS compatible and can be reliably coupled with third party technologies via a proven ISO-UT function.
“The new XD and XD+ consoles are designed to make precision farming technologies easily accessible to a wider range of farmers and contractors,” explains Richard Reed, Managing Director of LH Agro, “and to give machinery dealers and OEM companies the most up-to-date and competitively priced solutions which are also easy to upgrade.
“Their compatibility with Topcon’s Horizon 5 software and Topcon Agriculture Platform (TAP) also means the XD and XD+ consoles can be accessed remotely by machinery manufacturers and dealers to enable them to unlock or upgrade specific features, customise implement settings or offer remote support, and to quickly and simply share task data, AB lines and field-specific positioning information from one console to another.”
The XD and XD+ extend Topcon’s X-series range of consoles which currently consists of the following models:
- X35: 12.1” premium console
- X25: 8.4” mid-range console
- XD+: 12.1” entry-level console
- XD: 7” entry-level console
Prices for the Topcon XD and XD+ start from £1,120 and £2,140 respectively. For more information visit www.lh-agro.co.uk or call LH Agro on 01480 496367.
