Netafim USA Unveils New Smart Irrigation Controllers for Water-Efficient Landscapes
Apr 2 14
Netafim USA introduced a new line of web-based, smart controllers for the landscape. The company's Landscape Controllers determine the watering needs of a specific landscape by incorporating both historical and current weather data as well as real-time data from soil moisture sensors. Developed for Netafim by Tucor, the Netafim Landscape Controllers (NLC) are multi-function landscape controllers expressly designed to maximize the water efficiency of any landscape, while reducing the time, labor and costs incurred when expanding a system into new areas of the landscape. Setting a new precedent for landscape water-use efficiency, the NLC controllers determine the watering needs of a specific landscape by incorporating both historical and current weather data as well as real-time data from soil moisture sensors that monitor the amount of moisture available to plants in each zone. The NLC series of irrigation controllers offers an advanced suite of water-management features that include: intuitive programming for retrofit and expansion, remote management capabilities that allow professionals to adjust programming and review schedules of multiple sites from any internet-ready device, and the ability to seamlessly integrate with Netafim's Total Cycle Management, the most advanced soil and climate monitoring system available. Developed for use in a variety of configurations from basic residential systems to large-scale commercial applications, the conventional (NLC-100S Conventional) converts a conventional system to a water-efficient remote management system, while the 2-wire decoder-based (NLC-100D Decoder) can control up to 100 stations with wire runs of up to 16,000. The Hybrid (NLC-100S Hybrid) model combines the advantages of a conventional and decoder system, allowing retrofitting of an existing controller and the addition of multiple valves to an existing system without the need for additional labor or cost intensive rewiring and retrenching. Netafim also announced the release of its NLC-3D module, an innovative 'plug and play' interface that converts any conventional controller into an infinitely scalable, 2-wire decoder--based controller that uses existing wiring.
