Rotores y válvulas IC

El IC System™ de Rain Bird® conecta el control central directamente a cada rotor y válvula, proporcionando unas condiciones de campo excepcionales, con una eficiencia energética y de agua inigualable. La ausencia de controladores de campo, decodificadores separados, cableado secundario o empalmes innecesarios significa un diseño simplificado, un funcionamiento fiable y una fácil capacidad de expansión.

El revolucionario diagnóstico del IC System permite al campo de golf monitorizar el estado y resolver proactivamente los problemas desde cualquier lugar y en cualquier momento, proporcionando una verdadera tranquilidad. Esta innovación exclusiva evita daños en el césped y ahorra tiempo.

Instalación y expansión simplificadas

  • Reduzca costes y tiempo de instalación al eliminar cables, soterramiento y empalmes innecesarios.
  • Minimice los costes de mano de obra durante la expansión simplemente conectando los nuevos rotores IC a cualquier cable Maxi existente.

Diagnóstico y control precisos

  • Compruebe el estado de hasta 1500 rotores individuales en 90 segundos o menos.
  • Concéntrese en los problemas y resuelva las cuestiones de manera rápida para evitar daños en el césped y costes de mano de obra innecesarios.
  • Proporcione una mayor precisión y ahorro de agua a las áreas que requieren un riego adicional (zonas críticas, greens, crecimientos).

Diseño simplificado

  • Al eliminar hasta el 90% del cable y todos los decodificadores y satélites, el IC System protege la estética de su campo al mismo tiempo que simplifica la instalación, el mantenimiento y la expansión.

Características

Streamlined Installation and Expansion
Cut installation cost and time by eliminating unneeded wire, trenching, and splices.
Minimize labor costs during expansion by simply connecting new IC rotors to any existing Maxi Wire.
The Integrated Control Module (ICM) offers tear-off bar codes and an easy-to-use scanner to simplify the creation of the central control system database for quick operation. As soon as the wire path is connected to the computer, you can turn on the sprinklers and valves.
The IC System is easier to design — only simple calculations are required. It eliminates an array of troublesome considerations—there are no satellite controllers to design around or conceal.
Pinpoint Diagnostics and Control
Check the status of up to 1,500 individual rotors in 90 seconds or less.
Narrow in on problems and resolve issues quickly to prevent turf damage and unnecessary labor costs.
Bring greater precision and water savings to areas requiring supplemental watering (hot spots, greens, grow‑ins).
Simplified Design
By eliminating up to 90% of the wire and all decoders and satellites, IC System protects the aesthetics of your course while streamlining installation, maintenance, and expansion.
Since the ICM is built right into the rotor or valve, the entire control system is below ground. Unlike field controller systems, the below-ground system offers protection against damage from vandalism, flooding, and insects.
Since the IC System control is designed to be entirely below ground, the golf course vistas are clear of irrigation components as envisioned by the golf course designer. The IC System allows the full benefits of Rain Bird central control systems including ET-based scheduling, customized course graphics, multiple mapping options, and the ability to “see” the placement and operation of individual rotors.
Reliable Control
The IC System is a simple yet sophisticated controller/rotor/valve system built around a new generation of Rain Bird’s proven solenoid and satellite technology. Simplicity results in reliability.
The IC System is designed to always turn off if problems occur. When the wire path is damaged or cut, or if central control communication is lost, the ICM is designed to turn off automatically.
True “Below 30 Volt Control System”
As the IC System wire path output is 28 Volts, the IC System is a “true less than 30 Volt control system.” A lower than 30 Volt system is considered a low voltage system and is typically not subjected to code requirements regarding deep burial of the wire path.
