Features

System Features

  • Maxicom²® Central Controller Package comes with Maxicom² software, pre-configured computer, Global Service Plan (GSP), and training
  • Control hundreds of ESP-SITE-SAT Satellites (single controller sites) and Cluster Control Units (CCUs) which can each control up to 28 individual ESP-SAT Satellite Controllers on multi-controller sites
  • Monitor dozens of Weather Sources including WSPRO2 Weather Stations, or rain counting sensors (Raingauge)
  • Multiple log and water usage reports are generated automatically to track system operation and water savings

Water Management Features

  • Cross satellite schedule operation; 999 separate schedules per CCU provides precision watering of areas and microclimates
  • ET Checkbook™ manages Evapotranspiration (ET) and automatically adjusts Satellite Controller station run-time or day cycle intervals to match the landscapes water requirements
  • FloManager™ manages the total flow demand placed on the water source(s), optimizing both the available water and watering window
  • FloWatch™ monitors flow sensors at each water source, records flow, and automatically reacts to problem flows by shutting down the effected portion of the system (individual valve or mainline)
  • RainWatch™ monitors rain counting sensors, records rainfall, and automatically reacts to rainfall by interrupting irrigation, waiting to see how much rain has fallen, and determines if the irrigation should be resumed or cancelled

Operational Features

  • Communication Control Engine automatically sends updated programming to sites before watering begins and retrieves logs after irrigation is completed; manual operation can be performed at any time
  • Start day cycles: Custom (day of the week), Odd/Even, Odd31, or Cyclical and include Event Day Off Calendar scheduling
  • Station run-times programmable from 1 minute to 16 hours
  • Cycle + Soak™ optimizes water application to soil infiltration rate, reducing runoff and puddling
