CONTROL IRRIGATION

Irrigation – Automate your irrigation system

TOTAL CONTROL

Take full control of your irrigation operations. Automate your irrigation system regardless of your system size. Our wireless capability provides unmatched flexibility, with up to a 40 miles of non line of site radio range – so that field in across the valley can now easily be automated.

Set Irrigation Control Templates for different seasons or weather conditions, or better, have our intelligent irrigation feature make the changes automatically.

CONTROL ANY BRAND, ANY AGE.

Our system is 100% control and sensor agnostic. Any brand of valve, pump, sensor or even filter flush device will work with the IRRInet control system. Our system is offered in multiple control options to ensure you can automate even your oldest of valves, even motorized gate valves.

REAL TIME MEANS REAL TIME

When we mention our control system is a real-time system, we mean now. Not a 30 second delay, or 5 minutes (as in some other systems). Because our system is based off a mission critical platform from Motorola, all field control processes are happening on our lightning fast digital radio network, which has no delay (less than .03milisecond). Delays can be costly, in cases of hydraulic issues such as leaks, water hammer or other issues that can arise in any irrigation system – something Branif Systems does not tolerate.

HOW IT WORKS

The secret to Branif’s IRRInet solution is the Distributed I/O system based off the Motorola SCADA architecture. Local Remote Terminal Units (RTUs) are connected to irrigation valves, pumps, sensors, filters and more, and each RTU has a secure, powerful Motorola Digital Data Radio that connects each RTU to an internet connection, like your home or office. Powerful Water Management software, ICC PRO, and FieldMouse load your irrigation parameters into the RTU for real time communications. The RTUs turn your valves on, manage hydraulic limitations (I.E: Maintaining Pressure), while you can see and make changes on the go with our intuitive mobile app.

NO FEES

Due to the proprietary Motorola Radio and RTU technology, there is no need for a cellular connection, even if your field is 40 miles or more away from any internet connection. This has the added benefit of allowing us to not charge data or subscription fees. You still get every feature of a system with
