Panel offers access boost
The range of Zimmatic Controllers, including the pictured 712C, is designed to help increase access to remote irrigation monitoring.


Three new irrigation system control panels will make remote monitoring of the Zimmatic systems easier by becoming more accessible, manufacturer Lindsay Corporation says.

Available in three versions – the 500C, 700C and 712C – the Zimmatic control panels are integrated with Lindsay’s FieldNet remote irrigation management software.

Product manager Reece Andrews says the Zimmatic control panels will help operators improve productivity through increased access.

"We know every grower’s situation is different. That’s why we offer a range of advanced Zimmatic controllers – all FieldNet-ready and prepared to go to work in your field," Andrews says.

"Over-the-air serviceability makes software and firmware updates and the addition of future feature enhancements easier than ever."

"With advanced technology and an intuitive interface, they’re powerful but very easy to use," he says.

Each of the new panels comes with smart barrier automation – providing a simple method for irrigating part circles by enabling a pivot to reverse and return to its original starting point.

Andrews says more and more growers are looking at using part circle systems on their properties.

"So, in addition to simplifying the user experience, we wanted these new controllers to make it more effective to run part circles," he says.

"The smart barrier feature gives users the ability to start a part circle pivot and automatically reverse, return and stop at the original starting point."

All three systems can deliver low pressure shut down alerts and low pressure start-up countdowns, while the 700C and 712C also have FieldNet and GPS positioning for remote automation of stops, precision irrigation plans and more.

The 712C also has a 12-inch, easy-to-use interactive touchscreen which Lindsay says is the industry’s largest.
