A new line of wireless irrigation monitor systems is now available from Orbit Communications .
Agrigator wireless irrigation monitors are designed to monitor pivot or lateral irrigators and send this information by wireless link back to the pump.
If the Agrigator detects an issue at the pivot irrigator such as pivot out of line, loss of pressure or circle complete, it will switch the pump off and prevent the pump from being started until the issue is resolved.
Also available is an optional GSM/Next-G dialler that will send an SMS text alert to a maximum of 5 mobile phones to alert the farmer or maintenance person of the situation.
The GSM/Next-G dialler is supplied with a high gain antenna to ensure healthy mobile phone signal in weak signal areas.
Existing systems in the market feature irrigation monitoring systems that will only send a message but are unable to turn off or have any control over the pump. In such instances, the pump continues to run regardless of the fault at the pivot irrigators.
Agrigator wireless irrigation monitoring systems are reliable devices offering dependable performance for the long-term.
The wireless link between the pivot unit and the pump control unit is continuously monitored so that the pump can shut down the moment an issue is detected. The wireless link uses 2-way communications between the pivot and pump to ensure all messages get through.
Agrigator wireless irrigation monitors are supplied in a robust enclosure that is waterproof, dustproof and UV stable for operation indoors or outdoors. No tuning or ongoing maintenance is required for the unit. Agrigator operates from 12V or 24V DC or optional solar power supply.
