Topcon's Weather Station provides important information to cab

Agriculture.com Staff 08/30/2007 @ 10:00am

Topcon's new Weather Station provides continuous weather monitoring to the X20 controller, enabling the operator to view weather data while performing any agricultural application, from tilling to harvesting. With integrated mapping, weather and coverage maps can be recorded, printed, stored or transmitted by email as permanent records.

"The Weather Station measures apparent wind speed and direction, air temperature and relative humidity. Wind speed and direction are calculated and recorded with the integrated X20 Guidance module connected to a GPS receiver. Only a weather station interfaced with GPS data can provide correct and accurate data about external environmental factors from a moving vehicle after operation," says Rhett Schildroth, precision agriculture product marketing manager.

The module also includes audio and visual alarms concerning adverse weather conditions. Combined with the X20 GDX Viewer software, detailed maps and reports of weather conditions by location and date/time can be viewed, printed, copied to thumb drives or transferred to other farm operation software.

MSRP for the Weather Station is approximately $2,000.

For more information, call 925/245-8300 or visit www.topconpositioning.com.
