The best in total irrigation performance.
The IC System combines the rotor or valve and the controller into one device, linking them directly to your central control. Rain Bird’s innovative Integrated Control Technology™ uses up to 90% less wire and 50% fewer splices. It eliminates satellite controllers and decoders. It minimizes irrigation waste. And it creates peace of mind by minimizing installation and maintenance hassles. That’s the intelligent use of water.
The IC System is superior in every way.
More Reliable – 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. Easy to manage…consistent…dependable…the IC System offers reliable performance day after day, year after year.
Easier Maintenance – The IC System is capable of intelligent two-way communication with each and every IC Module on the golf course. Almost all troubleshooting can be managed through intuitive diagnostics built into the central control software. The learning curve for maintenance is minimal. Course technicians can easily accomplish most maintenance tasks.
Easier to Install – The IC System is easier to install—no need to manually enter addresses. With a simple swipe you can scan each IC Rotor and Valve. Two easy splices attach the unit to the MAXI™ Wire. Because it requires less copper wire and fewer splices, the IC System saves materials, labor and time.
Easier to Expand – The IC System is easier to expand—IC Series Rotors and Valves can be added almost anywhere there is MAXI Wire—up to an amazing capacity—3,000 ICMs x 8 interfaces = 24,000 ICMs. All with superior 20kV surge protection.
Dependable – 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.
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.
