Automated, wireless irrigation pump control released by Valley

Valley Irrigation has released Pump Command, a new solution for growers to automate pumping and wirelessly control irrigation pumps.

The innovation helps save time and resources with wireless remote monitoring, plus control of all pumps and the ability to link them to a fleet of pivots or linears.

“Valley Pump Command is like an easy button for your pumping,” said Andy Carritt, Vice President, Global Product for Valley Irrigation, through a press release. “Just turn your pivots on, and your pump station takes care of itself. Pump Command is able to achieve that through our revolutionary intuitive pump control technology, an automatic VFD set point that automatically matches output to demand for multiple pumps and pivots. It saves growers water and energy, and conserves natural resources.”
