Imagine integrating your Pump Network with your Irrigation Network
Imagine operating your Pumps and Pivots via the Internet or your Mobile Phone
TEAM Irrigation now can offer Lindsay Corporation's industry first fully-integrated pump and centre pivot irrigation monitoring and control package. This means, for the first time growers have the ability to use a combination of cutting edge irrigation and pump control technology, all in one package, to save energy, water and labour costs.
In December 2009, Lindsay Corporation, maker of Zimmatic irrigation systems, announced the addition of pump control to its award-winning FieldNET Web-based irrigation management system. With this addition, growers will be able to access a single portal to monitor and control their entire pump and centre pivot irrigation system.
FieldNET, the industry's first full control Web-based irrigation management system, allows growers to monitor and control their pivots from any internet connection or cell phone. With a user-friendly Web portal, FieldNET provides growers a quick view of every pivot, providing information on pivot location, pivot status and water usage.
With FieldNET pump control, growers now have information on their entire water delivery system, allowing them to monitor and maintain each pump and pivot for peak performance. This integrated solution automatically tracks and reports pump start-ups and shutdowns and sends alerts for any disparity of normal operations, such as flow alarms.
By integrating the pump network with the pivot network, Lindsay Manufacturing created a pump and centre pivot irrigation system that is self-regulating. A unique solution called Dynamic Demand Control (DDC) automatically lowers the pump's pressure requirement when higher pressures are not needed so the system is always running at maximum efficiency. This significantly reduces the grower's water, energy and labour costs while providing the convenience of controlling or monitoring the pump and pivot system from anywhere on the globe via the Internet.
TEAM Irrigation will be installing their first Watertronics pump station inclusive of this FieldNET pump control system at the Tamworth Waste Water Scheme.
The above pumps are under construction at Watertronics Wisconsin factory. A total of 5 pumps will be manifolded together in the pump station, tested and delivered to Australia late July 2010. This pump station will have a system capacity of up to 736 litres per second or 54 megalitres per day at 70m head pressure.
