Dickey-john Corp., which manufactures sensors, monitors and control systems, will market the new X30 machine control display from Topcon Positioning Systems (TPS) under a newly formed a strategic relationship, according to an announcement from the two companies.
The X30 is a virtual terminal with full autosteering functionality when paired with Topcon’s AGI-3 navigation receiver. It offers complete compatibility with Dickey-john sensors, monitors and control systems, but also any ISO 11783 compliant product.
"Topcon's strength in technology, such as ruggedized virtual terminals, GPS and steering technology, provides another product option for our customers," said Art Tsubaki, Dickey-john's vice president of marketing. “Our ISO tradition and expertise, in combination with the X30, provide a great platform for OEM and aftermarket opportunities."
The X30 console has a 12.1-inch display with an icon-based user interface, dashboard and interaction keypad for ease of use.
Prominent features include compatibility with Dickey-john control ECUs, autosteering using the Topcon AGI-3 receiver, ISO virtual terminal compatibility, manual guidance via a lightbar system, coverage mapping and as-applied maps and import of XML prescription maps.
