Do you want to remotely control your pivots without having to change your current control panel? iControl Remote is the solution you’ve been looking for to reduce water use, costs and time, through the remote management of your pivots.
iControl Remote is an easily installed remote control system, with which you can remotely manage your pivots from any computer, tablet or cell phone using a web browser. The system is installed inside a box in the pivot’s last tower and includes a GPS receiver and a SIM card to ensure communication between the system and the remote management application.
The incorporated pressure sensor continuously measures the water pressure at the end of the pivot and, this information, together with IProx Irrigation, is used to optimize the pumping pressure and reduce the energy cost.
In this way, you can configure various irrigation programs and, at the same time, see and manage the status, pressure, speed and real position of your irrigation system in real time, with the ability to apply different quantities of water in different sectors, thanks to the GPS receiver locating the pivot’s position.
Moreover, iControl Remote, which works like a pivot irrigation app, will send you notifications and alerts in real time, including simple data tables or graphs to help you analyze the current operation and implement the next irrigation cycle intuitively.
Finally, iControl Remote also enables you to perform fertigation with your pivots, since you can add nutrients to the irrigation water, giving you more control over your crops and reducing both water and fertilizer consumption, as well as improving the crop’s productive capacity and the profitability of your holding.
iControl Remote is compatible with all the pivot brands on the market and the thousands of units operating all around the world endorse its robustness and efficiency as a SCADA system for pivots.
- Allows water use to be optimised and both costs and time to be saved
- Economic and simple installation. Easy to use thanks to its intuitive interface
- The system’s ability to manage all crops from any device with an internet connection
This video explains how easy irrigation is with iControl Remote
The installation of iControl Remote in a pivot, no matter how basic its electromechanical panel, adds advanced features such as variable speed by sector, start/stop by calendar, virtual barriers, wireless control of the pump and/or generator, electrical hose wire cut detection, etc. (See product sheet)
iControl Remote allows water use to be optimized and both costs and time to be saved. The “Pump water pressure control” function allows the pressure provided by the pumping station to be regulated depending on the pressure requirements of each pivot at each moment. Only iControl Remote allows you to save up to 30% of energy costs (depending on the terrain of the plots and the distribution network)
A relay incorporated in the device makes it possible to control the pump or to turn on the generator, from the pivot itself using iControl Remote.
If the pivot hose is cut, iControl Remote sends a cable theft alert by SMS/email. Thanks to a small solar kit (optional) which keeps iControl Remote turned on and activated, this is even possible in the winter with the pivot disconnected from the electricity supply.
The system can manage all the crops from any device with an internet connection.
iControl Remote is compatible with all the brands of pivots existing on the market.
You do not need to change your current electric panel.
Economic and simple installation thanks to its intuitive interface.
