THE START: 1971

“How can I open a valve without risking my life ?”

SAVING LIVES

WIRELESS VALVE ACTUATION

In 1971, the Israeli Defense forces approached Motorola Israel with an urgent request: Develop a solution to enable farmers to open valves without going into the field.

DANGEROUS ENVIRONMENT

Thanks to a unique partnership between the IDF, Motorola and Israeli Farmers, a task team was assembled to quickly develop a wireless valve actuator that would enable Farmers to run irrigation from the safety of their office or home. Because Motorola already had established the Data Radio for military purposes, the existing technology was quickly adapted to the new wireless solenoid actuator. Motorola Irrigation Systems were born.

An Unlikely Partnership

Because Motorola already had established the Data Radio for military purposes, the existing technology was quickly adapted to the new wireless solenoid actuator. Motorola Irrigation Systems were born.

1981: Expanding Overseas

It all started with Motorola’s Service depot in the irrigation department in South Africa. In the 80s, Motorola Israel ventured overseas and entered the South African market – expanding its’ irrigation division. Innovative Wine Growers in the Cape Town Peninsula were the first adopters of this new technology and embraced it.

1984: Moving to the United States

As the turn of the decade approached, the political climate at the time changed the expansion plans and now the focus was on the United States, one of the largest users of irrigation in the world. The irrigation team in South Africa was brought to the United States to launch Motorola’s Irrigation division in the USA with their unique expertise.

1993: Becoming Branif Systems

In North America, the South African Motorola Irrigation engineers started their own engineering firm when they soon realized that Motorola Irrigation products could be used to irrigate more than just farms, while Motorola Inc lacked the resources to deploy these new systems. They started selling systems to Local Municipalities and government agencies, starting with City of Los Angeles, Cal Trans, Beverly Hills and expanding form there with Motorola’s full support. The name of the firm was to become Branif Systems.
