IRRInet-ACE

New generation field unit expanding the IRRInet family of products providing versatile expandable solutions

The IRRInet ACE allows the integration of existing and new IRRInet systems using powerful communication capabilities via numerous types of media: radio, cellular, Wi-Fi, wire line etc.

The Modular design of the IRRInet-ACE provides large scalability and powerful field units to the IRRInet family of solutions.

Greater installation flexibility is provided with support of 3rd party sensors and PLC units as well as multiple communication options including broadband data over TCP/IP, radio, cellular and wire line.

Features and Benefits

IRRInet-M AC

IRRInet M supports 3 operation modes:

  1. RTU - A Remote Terminal Unit performing irrigation/water control functions and reporting to the IRRInet Control Center (ICC) Software.
  2. Remote I/O - Serving as a “slave” distributed I/O for a “master” unit that performs all irrigation and water control functions.
  3. Stand Alone - Performing irrigation and water control functions as a stand-alone unit.

Features and Benefits

Radio Piccolo XR

The Piccolo XR is a small wireless Remote Terminal Unit that operates as an integral part of the IRRInet system.

The Piccolo-XR operates up to 4 latched outputs and may receive up to 7 digital inputs (model dependent).

The PIU (Piccolo XR Interface Unit) is connected to the IRRInet Field Unit, and communicates with Piccolo XR units via an internal two-way low-power radio.

Piccolo XR and PIU are equipped with internal 10mWatt or 100mWatt radio unit

In order to extend radio coverage the Piccolo XR is capable of operating in a networking mode with up to 5 radio communication hops.
