Topcon adds ISOBUS to Opus A6 + A8 terminals

Set-up and operation functions for ISOBUS-compliant implements have been added to the Topcon Opus A6 and A8 terminals, produced by Topcon Electronics in Germany.

It adds another dimension to the existing hardware and software development platform says Topcon, providing customers with a ready-made ISOBUS solution.

The Topcon Opus A6 terminal has 4GB storage memory and display operated by touch and/or numerous function buttons and a scrolling dial.

The agriculture industry standard Universal Terminal (UT) function provides compatibility with a wide range of compliant electronic control units on tractors, implements and other equipment.

It includes additional functionality such as AUX-N support, which enables implements to be operated through input devices such as a joystick.
