RDS Technology is a Topcon-owned brand that designs and manufactures a wide range of instrumentation for the mobile machinery industry. Instruments can monitor, measure or control. Example areas of expertise include on-board weighing or payload weighing scales, rate control, drill, baler and wrapper controls.
The company has a wide range of standard instruments that are supplied and supported through specialist distributors in many parts of the world. RDS is always interested to hear from potential new distributors.
In addition to the standard range, RDS/ Topcon provides customised solutions to the OEM machinery industry, where RDS engineers work closely with the customer to provide an efficient, economic solution for the customer’s technical requirements.
In 2012, RDS was acquired by the US company Digi-Star LLC, a leading manufacturer of electronic weighing systems, providing measuring solutions to optimise agricultural performance. In 2015, Digi-Star and RDS were acquired by the Topcon Positioning Group and are now part of Topcon Agriculture.
