The smart watering system results in more efficient water use, and avoids the waste of water that typically occurs due to over watering.
Nanaimo, British Columbia (PRWEB) October 18, 2011
iDUS Controls Ltd. is pleased to announce that its G-100 irrigation controller has been selected to compete in the New Product Contest at Irrigation Show 2011.
The iDUS G-100 is a solar powered irrigation controller that uses local environmental sensing to remove the guesswork involved in determining watering times, resulting in more efficient water use and “set and forget” automation for the end user.
Ron Hartman, CEO of iDUS Controls Ltd. says, “This product is perfect for achieving desired crop performance and growth characteristics for agricultural irrigation. The user sets the desired soil moisture setting, and the proper irrigation regime is then automatically maintained by the controller. The automation provides comfort that watering is being correctly taken care of, frees up farm labor and reduces costs.”
The reasonable cost of the units and their custom user-determined soil moisture calibration and control features allow for installation of multiple zones in a vineyard, orchard, or row-crop operation tailored to the needs of the crop in each specific zone.
“We are very excited to be recognized in the New Product Category,” says Hartman. “The G-100 irrigation controller is one of the most innovative irrigation controllers on the market. Its smart watering system results in more efficient water use, and avoids the waste of water that typically occurs due to over watering.”
iDUS will be introducing the G-100 at Irrigation Show 2011, November 6-8 in San Diego, California. Judging and selection of the contest winners will take place at the show.
