Specifically designed for farming operations X30 controllers include spraying, spreading, or planting and feature innovative efficiency tools such as virtual switchbox, flow-over-pressure based rate control, and auto coverage to help ensure no gaps or overlap.

X30 Precision Application Versatile X30 controllers for spraying, spreading or planting • Variable Rate Control (VRC) simultaneous control for up to 8 products • Autosection control (ASC) with ISO interface for sprayers and planters • Easy to upgrade as your application needs grow

Mapping and Data Management

Sprayer Control Reduce your workload and increase your accuracy. Spray control provides cost savings on inputs, while protecting the environment from excess application. The easy-to-use system can control multiple productsn and is compatible with the NORAC UC5™ boom leveling system via ISO**.

The X30 can generate exportable boundary, coverage, logging, and as-applied maps with flag points. The X30 imports shapefiles and ISOXML prescription maps. The software calculates covered and remaining areas. The X30 also provides multiple input/output features for maximum data use. Client/Farm/Field/Job menu saves multiple fields and tasks for different farms. Create detailed exportable exports for data tracking and multi-year analysis. AutoLocate (automatic field recognition by proximity to your current location) feature allows easy field identification and job loading.

Variable Rate Control Single or multiple product variable rate reduces input costs by applying seed and fertilizer precisely where you need it. Import prescription maps, build your own, or generate real-time as-applied log maps. Simultaneously controls and records up to 8 products.

Autosection (ASC) and Liquid Rate Control The ASC-10 provides ten-section sprayer, planter, or spreader section control and handles point rows or triangular-shaped fields. ASC automatically switches sections on/off as you cross previously applied areas or as sections or move outside field boundaries. ASC eliminates gaps/overlaps and reduces inputs while protecting your crops. Liquid rate control keeps application rate constant even with varied vehicle speeds.

ISO Virtual Terminal (VT) The X30 virtual terminal supports plug-and-play operation for direct control of major planter monitors and planter, seeder and sprayer controllers with industry standard ISO11783. Operates in parallel with X30 autosection control. For sprayers and planters, up to 32-section autosection control can be accessed through the ISO interface.

Spreader Control Variable rate capability accurately controls liquid or granular nitrogen and fertilizer application. Perform variable rate application from imported prescription maps or generate real-time "as applied" maps. Compatible with common spreader hydraulic systems. Auto-shutoff when used with ASC-10.

Just-in-time crop management

Monitor in-field variability, treat on-the-go, or save data for future analysis and creation of prescription maps. CropSpec™ operates with MapLINK VRC software or any of the X20 application controllers. Based on Topcon’s core competency of optics, CropSpec™ uses pulsing laser diodes for sensing. The sensors mount on the cabin roof out of harm’s way, with less potential for damage to crops or equipment. The sensors measure plant reflectance to determine chlorophyl content, which correlates to nitrogen concentration in the leaf. This non-destructive, non-contact method provides accurate, stable readings and repeatable values. CropSpec™ was developed in cooperation with Yara International, a leading world supplier of nutrients.

Precision from Initial Data Import to Final Analysis

The system helps professionals generate application plans written for specific implement controllers, which maximize yields and minimize appropriate resource use.
