An Israeli SME develops, manufactures and markets irrigation controllers for several market segments. They have developed a small, battery operated, waterproof, IP68-standard rated, volumetric irrigation controller to detect a high flow situation and stop water to prevent wasting. Advantages include its professional level irrigation & flow control, ability to work under water while being cost-efficient etc. The company is looking for distribution services and commercial agency agreements.
Lack of sufficient available water resources to meet water needs in a region affects every continent and about 2.8 billion people around the world. More and more areas in the world are facing leak of water or know that they are about to be in that situation soon. There are few countries, in North America, EU and more, which already bill their residences on this so basic service – providing water. The company also provides complementary control products developing to customers. The offered product is a small semi-professional controller, which just suits to avoid water wasting because of any pipe break / systems leakage.
It is shutting-off watering upon high-flow detection. The controller may be used for time-based or volume-based irrigation by user's configuration. If volumetric irrigation is chosen, controller can detect high flow condition and shut-off electrical valve to avoid water wasting. It is achieved by measuring the time gap between water meter pulses. If gap is shorter than pre-defined user's threshold, a high-flow alert condition will be declared, an appropriate message will be set on screen and water will be immediately stopped. User may define the system pipes-fill-up-time, so the controller does not need to detect a high flow condition. The offered controller can also protect against a water meter disconnection and finish an active irrigation instead of irrigate endlessly. Then alarm will automatically be cleared at midnight, enabling next irrigation activation or re-sensing the
absence of water-meter. The device is a 9VDC (direct current 9-volt) battery, volumetric irrigation potted controller. It can work in a one meter depth for a full week – IP68-rated. The device has an integrated flash memory, non-volatile, keeping users program if running out of battery. The device works with any standard DC 2-wires latch solenoid and any dry contact standard water meter, has LCD Display and four buttons, 12 or 24 hours clock. Preset volume up to 10,000 pulses or 24 hours irrigation duration. Predefined high flow threshold, system fill-up time and water-meter disconnection protective parameters. The product may have up to three start times per day, may work on weekly or interval schedule. Water budget management by seasonal adjustment of 10%-200%, programmable "dry contact" input override. Program coping function is for user's convenience. The offered product / controller may be applied in: a)residential, institutional or agriculture volumetric irrigation. It manages any irrigation up to 10,000 water meter pulses or 24 hours, b)agriculture, urban or industrial water conduction control with
uncontrolled water detection. One may use the controller in a 24x7 irrigation mode with high flow detection enabled, c)other industrial sectors – container filling control, pipeline flow control etc. The company was established in 1975 to develop and manufacture electro-mechanic irrigation timers, working closely to agriculture growers, learning their needs in the field. The company extensive product range includes comprehensive irrigation for greenhouses and nurseries, open fields, orchards & plantations, residential & landscape areas and industry. The company irrigation controllers work in agriculture, municipal and
landscape gardening. They also develop projects to their customers. Based in Israel, the company developing center has experienced electrical and computer engineers.
Manufacturing is in China & Israel in the ISO 13485:2003, 9001:2008, 16949:2009 certified facilities. Controllers are assembled in SMT (surface mounting technology) process and
pass in-built testing procedure. The company is looking for cooperation with distributors and dealers in agricultural, residential (gardening), municipal applications and industrial
(container filling / main pipelines flow control), fields under distribution services and commercial agency agreement.
