IPC Winter Service Reminder

IPC Service - refurb and repairs

IPC Winter Service – We always endeavour to provide prompt turnaround times for all IPC repairs and refurbishments.

Please send any IPCs in need of refurbishment or repair to us over winter to help prevent the impact of any delays and the increasing pressure during the irrigation season.

Irrigation NZ states, “winter is the ideal time to conduct repairs and maintenance on irrigation systems. By addressing these issues now irrigators can ensure that their irrigation systems are in top condition when needed”. Full Irrigation NZ article is on page 44.

Our team of skilled service technicians look forward to ensuring your fixed grid and G-Set controllers are ready for when you need to irrigate. All our IPC service activities are performed locally in Christchurch.

IPC refurbishment is a comprehensive overhaul which may include a new solar panel, replacement case etc. Refurbished IPCs have a 12 month warranty period, they are fully factory tested, and can also be supplied with new  installation kits.

We encourage all systems to also hold spare IPCs as this simplifies the swap out process and reduces dependency on repair times. This previous article includes advice on spares holding as systems get older.

IPC Health Checks with IMS

Now is also a good time to check the health of your solid set irrigation with IMS.

The cloud-based IMS adds real value here and makes it very easy to identify IPCs that may need service or repair. A report can be easily created and printed out to make field work easier too.

Note: If IPCs have limited exposure to sunlight during winter, the battery charge % may be low. As we move towards Spring the battery may very well recharge as expected, so please take this into consideration during assessment.

The IPC battery chargers and spare IPC batteries are also a great consideration for service situations.IPC Battery Chargers - AC and DC powered
