Intelligent Pump Control

An integrated, user-friendly option to remotely monitor pump stations from the office or the field using FieldNET® by Lindsay Pump Control.

Watertronic's innovative controls maximize the efficiency of your complete irrigation system. Whether it is a new or existing pump system, single or multiple pump operation, Watertronics can provide a customized pump control solution for almost any agricultural irrigation system.

Water, labor and energy costs are lowered especially if it is combined with FieldNET® for a completely integrated control system. In some cases you may save up to 75% of the labor and fuel it takes to physically check operations.

In addition, its status and alert features keep growers informed on system operation. This real-time system allows you to better prioritize irrigation scheduling for greater efficiency.

Dynamic Demand Control

Innovative Dynamic Demand Control (DDC) groups pivots with pump stations to reduce energy costs through powerful information sharing between the pivots and the pump station. FieldNET® can automatically

 adjust pump station pressure setpoints to best match demand from the pivots that are irrigating.  Pumps are always operated at the most energy-efficient setpoint and then automatically sequenced to effectively meet demand.

The sequencing of pumps also increases pump life by evenly spreading the workload among all pumps for greater return on investment.
