Standardizing control with Valley’s ICONX panel

Valley recently introduced Valley ICONX as part of the Valley ICON series of smart control panels to combat the challenge of multiple control technologies on today’s farms.

Farming operations continue to expand, adding new or rented farmland that often come with a mixture of center pivots. Though gaining land with existing pivots may seem like a big money saver, managing various software and mobile applications can become time consuming and challenging for modern farmers – until now.

Valley ICONX easily brings any control panel – from all major pivot brands – into the AgSense or BaseStation3 network. By using the panel’s circuits, the ICONX takes control of the existing pivot panel to connect any brand of pivot into one network.

“These days, one operation may have four, five or even six different types of control panels,” said John Campbell, Valley Irrigation manager of technology advancement and adoption.

“Previously, the only reasonable way to get all of those technologies on one platform was to replace every panel – including the enclosure – and add GPS position. The Valley ICONX is the first smart panel that gives growers a more affordable way to bring all control into one network.”

Because Valley ICONX is equipped with GPS Position and AgSense ICON Link, it can be integrated into the AgSense or BaseStation3 network, which allow growers to control and manage all of their pivots on one platform. For growers who prefer to control their machine from the pivot point, a full-color, five-inch touchscreen display comes standard with the panel. The Valley ICONX solution allows for the ability to upgrade without fully replacing your current control panel.
