Solid Set (Fixed Grid) Irrigation Control
Water-Insight provides automatic schedule based sprinkler control for solid set irrigation systems.
Our intelligent devices can be used for both small and large scale irrigation. The irrigation point controller (IPC) is a smart, solar powered solid set controller. The IPC is installed on each fixed grid post or pod and operates a DC latching solenoid to control the irrigation. A handheld programmer (EP3) is used to communicate with each IPC and is ideal for making adjustments to small solid set systems.
In larger systems the cloud based IMS technology, or an INC gateway, is used to communicate with the entire IPC network.
Irrigation Point Controller
The IPC is a programmable, timer-based sprinkler controller that can be set to a schedule that most benefits water distribution. It can be managed remotely by mesh radio and is completely autonomous in its function. Solar power also maintains the fully enclosed lithium polymer battery, allowing the IPC to work effectively even in the low sunlight months.
IPC variants are available for G-Set pod irrigation.
The EP3 is a handheld, wireless device that is used to configure and test the solid set sprinkler controllers. The EP3 communicates directly with any IPC, which means farmers can make changes to schedules and control sprinklers when they are out on the field. An EP3 can also act as an easy to use diagnostic tool for sprinkler operations.
A network gateway (INC) is a permanently installed device that provides gateway communications to each IPC attached to a solid set sprinkler. The INC interacts in real time with the IMS dashboard, which then allows users to visualise their farms operations and make changes to their sprinkler schedules from anywhere and at any time.
The IPC Solar Repeater is used when obstacles or long distances prevent line of sight between IPCs modules. The device extends the range by up to 1km and four repeaters can be used in one system. A stainless steel mounting system makes for easy installation. A 220V mains powered repeater is also available.
Irrigation Management System
The Irrigation Management System (IMS) is a cloud based irrigation solution. It gives farmers a smart way of monitoring and controlling solid set irrigation. It allows farmers to remotely manage all irrigation and sensor devices and provides sophisticated irrigation scheduling and configurable alerts and alarms.
Tank Level Monitor
The TLM is a solar powered water tank level monitor. It communicates to an internet gateway via LoRa radio over a range of many kilometres.
Our web-based dashboard technology provides you with tank level information and valuable alerts for critical water levels or significant rates of change.
The TLM can also be integrated into our IMS platform, to give you both fixed grid irrigation and water tank levels on the same system.
IPC Battery Charger
IPC Battery Chargers can charge up to six IPC batteries at the same time.
They are ideal for irrigation installers, resellers and large system users.
Charge your replacement batteries without using the IPC’s solar charging.
Battery Charger kits are available as either mains powered or with external 3 amp or 5 amp DC power supplies.
IPC Relay Interface Module
The IPC Relay Interface allows you control auxiliary devices using the IPC.
This module converts the IPC’s latching relay output into a conventional on/off relay control.
Relay operation is controlled by the IPC’s programmed schedule or can be remotely controlled using an EP3 or IMS.
