An agreement between technology manufacturers Topcon Positioning Systems and DICKEY-john will make Topcon’s just-introduced X30 control console available as a next generation console to DICKEY-john’s product line.


The X30 was introduced at the 2011 AgConnect Expo in Atlanta as the control console for Topcon’s new System 350 machine control system. For more on the System 350, click here.
