Wireless Control of solenoid valves
When you want to programme, control, open and close valves in an irrigation installation or a distribution network, you need an element that generates and transmits the necessary electrical impulses to a solenoid valve that – in turn – controls a hydraulic valve of any size, ordering its opening and closing.
That is exactly what the PRX-VALVE wireless controllers do. Via radio, with a range of 2000m, they receive commands from an IProx controller – which has a radio base station – and execute the requested operation in a matter of seconds. None of the uncertain waits of minutes or hours “until the next transmission”, characteristic of other products on the market.
PRX-VALVE’s solar power allows the device to remain permanently connected and to operate for many years without having to change the batteries.
- Almost instant manoeuvres following the open/close order
- Low operating costs thanks to the integrated solar panel, the economic batteries and the long time-period between substitutions
- From a sole base station connected to an IProx controller, it is possible to manage valves located up to 8km away
Flexibility in inputs allows you to combine the control of solenoid valves with the reading of pressure sensors, water meters and soil moisture sensors in just one machine. This saves costs since it is not necessary to install various machines for different functions in the same area. For example, the PRX-VALVE can open/close two valves, transmit the signal from a pressure sensor and read a soil moisture sensor.
