Väderstad TopDown mit E-Services
Väderstad, one of the world’s leading companies in tillage and seeding, presents a new generation of the cultivators Väderstad TopDown and Opus for the field season of 2024. In addition to an updated design, this means the introduction of the iPad-based control system Väderstad E-Control, as well as the possibility to apply prescription map tillage via ISOBUS Task Control. From model year 2024, the combination cultivator TopDown 400-700 and heavy cultivator Opus 400-700 can be equipped with gateway, sensors and updated electronics. This opens the possibility to gain full control of the machine via the iPad-based control system Väderstad E-Control, as well as to operate the machine via the tractor ISOBUS terminal.
The introduction of E-Services on TopDown and Opus makes the machines able to use prescription maps, to control the machine setting automatically on the go using a field map. This means that the farmer, before going to the field, can program how the individual working elements - discs, tines, levellers and packer - should behave at specific spots on the field based on for example soil type, or field characteristics. In the tractor, this prescription map is inserted to the tractor ISOBUS terminal, which then will connect to the Väderstad E-Control system to take control of the machine.
