Sep 4, 2019Valley Irrigation adds automatic wireless update capability
Valley Irrigation has announced another industry first: the ability to push updates “over the air” to its ICON control panels. This ag tech advancement is available automatically through the built-in Valley ICON Link.
Over-the-air updates will make irrigation management much simpler and less time-consuming for growers:
- This feature ensures ICON panels are kept up to date with the latest improvements. Updates pushed wirelessly over the cloud mean growers no longer have to update panels in-field via a USB drive or direct connection.
- These over-the-air updates will save growers the expense of a service call when installing firmware updates, as well as the time driving to each control panel and manually installing them.
- In addition, it will allow even more responsive service from Valley dealers and technicians; the latest updates can be pushed out to everyone instantly, rather than taking multiple trips to the field.
- The Valley ICON Link must be activated to utilize this feature.
“This new innovation furthers the Valley tradition of helping growers become more advanced and efficient,” said Andy Carritt, vice president, Product Development. “This industry first will be with updates functioning similarly to the smartphone updates most people are familiar with — but for their smart panels.
