System Topology

The Motorola System consists of a central server with ICC PRO, IRRInet field controllers and various RTUs operating the remote I/Os.
A reliable communication infrastructure for remote management of the IRRInet System can be established using a variety of communication methods including cellular, private radio communication, landline and Internet. 
The easy-to-use, modular and flexible IRRInet system can be expanded according to growing needs, enabling monitoring and control over an unlimited number of field RTUs.

The IRRInet system is supplied as a fully assembled solution with all required components, and ensures flexible deployment of all remote terminal units (RTUs). The IRRInet has a unique Data Store and Forward feature, enabling wide-area coverage and automatic rerouting of failed messages to redundant communication link. In addition the IRRInet enables remote diagnostics and remote download/upload of programs.

The IRRInet Control System by Mottech is comprised of the following key components:

• ICC PRO irrigation central management software tools

• Two-way wire line/wireless communication system

• IRRInet field controllers

• Remote Terminal Units (RTU):

• Piccolo XR – two-way radio communication system

• Single Cable Piccolo – two way wire line communication system

A reliable communication infrastructure for remote management of the IRRInet System can be established using a variety of communication methods including private radio communication, landline, cellular, fiber optic and the Internet.

The IRRInet for effective and automated monitoring & control

The Motorola IRRInet is the ideal choice for monitoring and controlling irrigation systems, delivering accurate, reliable and relevant data from multiple remote sites. It is designed to:

• Automatically irrigate and fertilize via remote control in a timely manner

• Detect faulty valves and water leakages

• Automatically activate and deactivate stations, pumps and electrical devices

• Interface with sensors and measuring devices

• Accept a variety of I/O expansion modules

The IRRInet system is supplied as a fully assembled solution including all required components.

The IRRInet ensures flexible deployment of all remote terminal units (RTUs).

The IRRInet has a unique Data Store and Forward feature, enabling wide-area coverage and automatic rerouting of failed messages to redundant communication link. In addition the IRRInet enables remote diagnostics and remote download/upload of programs.

 

The ICC PRO Platform is:

  • Reliable – Tested and proven system for schemes of any scale
  •  Efficient – Integrating Motorola equipment into a comprehensive system solution and enabling remote control and management over all respective field controllers
  • Secure – Allowing only authorized personnel to access the system and databasegraphical interface provides advanced management capabilities for operating the ICC irrigation platform via a user-friendly graphical interface.
  • automatic changes The ICC PRO allows accurate and automatic daily changes of water and fertilizer quantities for turf and landscape irrigation based on professional parameters and calculation processes.
  • Water budget – The advanced calculation engine of the ICC PRO automatically allocates water budgets to each valve according to any of the following operational parameters:
    –  Daily evapotranspiration (ET) rates
    –  Statistical agricultural constants per each vegetation type
    –  Plot size
    –  Time interval between irrigation cycles with hydraulic efficiency factor per valve
    –  Operational factor per vegetation type

Key Advantages

Municipalities can dramatically reduce the quantities of water used for turf and landscape irrigation, without compromising on the quality of the grass, turf, trees and seasonal flowers – and also save on energy, operational and labor costs. With the automated  Motorola systems remote, accurate and scheduled irrigation is no longer a wishful thinking.

Daily budgeting of water quantities: the flexible and accurate irrigation solution

Using the all-around ICC PRO IRRInet tools, daily complex water budgets can be easily planned down to valve groupings according to advanced agricultural parameters. Water budgets may also be allocated according to various vegetation types. With a single click the system’s administrator may update or alter all irrigation programs, reducing the consumption of water and electricity. Thanks to the IRRInet’s communication and management capabilities, turf and landscape irrigation can be managed from practically anywhere – whether from your mobile phone, in the office or at home. The flow rate-detection system ensures that all irregularities are monitored online, automatically reported and logged and immediately sent to designated mobile phones by SMS.

Municipalities are provided with a “one-stop solution,” offering them reliable, all-inclusive and cost-effective water and irrigation control solutions. The IRRInet systems are supplied fully-assembled, configured and fully tested.

The ICC- IRRInet System for municipal water management operations is best described by the following value criteria:

  • Professional – Complete monitoring and control over the entire water management operation
  • Efficient – Real-time alerts and messages
  • Accessible – Enabling dynamic planning through instant access to data
  • Cost-effective – Fast ROI and significant savings of water, energy and time
  • Secure – Allowing system access to authorized personnel only
  • Compatible – OPC compatibility option (Open Connectivity) for allowing users to integrate the system with other systems

Specifically designed to monitor & control:


  • Valves


  • Water meters


  • Weather stations data
