Topcon Agriculture introduces new NORAC UC7 all-in-one boom height control system
FORT ATKINSON, Wis. – February 14, 2017 – Topcon Agriculture announces the next generation of boom height control with the new NORAC UC7 Control System. UC7 is an all-in-one boom height control system, capable of all levels of NORAC automated control, designed as the ideal solution for any operation.
“The Topcon Agriculture portfolio now includes NORAC industry-leading boom height control systems, allowing farmers to reduce costs by applying at an ideal, automatically maintained height. Additionally, NORAC boom height control systems reduce boom damage and operator stress, increasing overall farming efficiency,” said Danea Armstrong, vice president of Global OEM Business for Topcon Agriculture.
Combining three modules into one from the NORAC UC5 Control System, UC7 reduces overall components, improving both installation and support efficiency. Whether a more advanced level of control is desired or a new feature is added, the system is easily updated as demands change. With the future in mind, UC7 is designed to take boom height control to the next level.
Armstrong said, “Offering varying levels of control, UC7 adapts to changing demands — from Standard Control™ to the breakthrough Active Roll™ technology, the system is easily altered by updating the UC7 control module via USB. It’s also compatible with Universal Terminal (UT) displays, enabling smooth integration for virtually any operation, truly making it the most robust boom height control system on the market.
“With the NORAC UC7 Control System, Topcon Agriculture sets the bar for boom height automation,” she said.
