Topcon AgCam, weather station

Topcon's new X20 AgCam uses up to four video cameras placed on the tractor or on any other piece of equipment. The cameras project high-resolution images directly into the cab, which are viewed through the same X20 console used for all other precision agriculture functions. Suggested retail price starts at $1,670. Each additional camera is $920.

The company's X20 weather station module incorporates a combination of sensors to record and report important weather information. The station provides continuous weather motoring to the X20, enabling the operator to view weather data while performing any agricultural application. Suggested retail price is $2,405.

Topcon says its new Ultra Sonic Boom Leveler incorporates a dual-sonic/gyro system to keep a sprayer boom at the correct height in the most demanding and difficult spraying situations. It uses four sensors to maintain a user-set distance between the operating spray boom and the ground or crop canopy. Retail prices start at $6,500.
