When a golf irrigation central control computer package is purchased most buyers think they are purchasing intelligent central control. However, most products on the market today are not central computer controllers but remote program devices. The computer is used to help construct a set of watering instructions that can be dowloaded into a remote device(s) such as field controllers or an interface to be carried out later.
Not the case with Rain Bird Central Control Systems. The computer is always running the entire system, thus true central control. And here is the kicker…since the computer is running the entire irrigation system, if something changes for example weather inputs, sensor alarms, pump station alarms, power outage alarms, Rain Bird’s Central Control Software is in charge and instantly decides on corrective action in real time. This lends itself to some very cool functions. Think Dynamic Flow Manager, SmartPump, RainWatch, Smart Sensors, Cycle & Soak, Flexible field hardware options and think “real time” decision making with intelligent response.
Get real and get ready to be excited about your irrigation control package!
