Topcon Precision Agriculture announces that its new X30 control console is now compatible with the Norac UC5 spray height control system. The two systems communicate via the X30 ISO virtual
terminal, which allows them to interoperate and function together. UC5 users benefit by having
another terminal option with the Topcon X30. Existing X30 users benefit from the ability to add a Norac UC5 system to their sprayer and operate the system from the X30 console, without the need for a separate interface for the boom leveling system.
UC5 is an ISOBUS certified system that uses ultrasonic sensors to control boom height by monitoring ground surface or top of crop, depending on crop conditions and operator preference. Norac UC5 uses no mechanical contact sensors to control boom height. The UC5 also has Roll Control capabilities for most sprayer models, allowing for increased boom stability, even in the most challenging terrain.
