Vinduino has announced its 5th generation wireless irrigation controller, which controls a pump, multiple irrigation valves, and keeps track of flow rate per irrigation block.
FREMONT, CA: The system works with eVineyard and eOrchard software for daily optimized variable rate irrigation to optimize crop results and save resources. The Vinduino 5G wireless irrigation controller works seamlessly with other Vinduino products, such as the Vinduino R4 soil moisture sensor station, and can join up to 1,000 stations in a 10-mile range wireless network. The latest LoRaWAN radio technology provides an always-on instantaneous response, allowing for wireless scheduling of multiple units and perfectly synchronized pump and valve operation. Vinduino’s engineering team reduced the system power consumption by 50 percent it perfect for solar-powered operation in the field.
One unit can control four irrigation zones, and one master valve or pump, while operating on solar or mains power. Integrated flow rate tracking allows precise irrigation volume management per irrigation zone. The Vinduino 5G wireless irrigation controller can detect leaks and autonomously stop irrigation while sending an alert via email and text message.
The CEO and founder of Vinduino, Reinier van der Lee said that improving the crop results while reducing resources and labor drives them to develop affordable, cutting-edge products. And despite these challenging times, the company kicked it up a notch, making leading irrigation technology available for the benefit of its customers.
CEO of Elmibit, a leading provider of agriculture software solutions told that bringing support for real-time operation of valves and pumps with Vinduino using LoRaWAN wireless technology is another exciting aspect that they strongly believe will make life easier for the farmers who use eVineyard and eOrchard solutions.
Vinduino builds the future of agriculture technology with award-winning products and services that improve farm profitability by lowering water and labor costs, increasing yield, and fruit quality. The company’s products are designed and assembled in Temecula Wine Country, California.
