Topcon Expands Farming Operations with System 210

Topcon Expands Farming Operations with System 210

Survey fields, design slopes and do land leveling all with one system.

Topcon's new System 210 addresses three important farming operations from the cab of the tractor, and is based on time-tested control systems made famous by the company.

System 210 uses Topcon's Agricultural GPS+ technology and operates on the X20 multi-function, touch screen controller. With the system, an operator can gather field surveys in minutes, or let Topcon's AGForm-3D survey and design software calculate best-fit slopes to reduce yardage of soil moved.

Topcon's System 210 does topographic surveys, design work and land leveling -- all from the cab of a tractor.

The system features include dual-constellation GPS plus GLONASS satellite reception for accuracy and 24/7 capability. It operates in conjunction with AGForm-3D land-leveling, surveying and field design software, and allows an operator to break fields into multiple sections to reduce yardage, shorten hauls and minimize topsoil cuts.

The HiPer AG mobile base station provides GNSS corrections for high-accuracy Z-axis positioning for land leveling. The one-piece, cable-free unit incorporates a receiver, radio, antennas and a rechargeable battery.

Dual constellation antenna options include the PG-A1 with integrated ground plane and micro-center technology which reduces multipath errors or the CR-G3 dome with internal choke ring for high performance in more demanding environments.
