Today, more than ever water and irrigation applications depend on reliable control systems and well timed access to information. When absolute control is crucial, you can rely on Motorola's IRRInet control system.
Communication Types: Conventional Radio, Store and Forward, RS-232/485

Piccolo-XR is a small radio controlled remote I/O device designed to extend the reach of IRRInet-ACE and IRRInet-M. Operating from a 6 volt DC power source and a small solar panel, Piccolo-XR can be ordered in one of 5 models: 1output+1 input/ 2 output+2 input/ 4 output+4 inputs/ 1output+7 inputs/ 0 outputs with 8 inputs. If distance or obstructions are a problem, Piccolo-XR's can relay information from unit to unit to reach the IRRInet-ACE or IRRInet-M field controller. Piccolo-XR is perfect for connecting distant landscape points of connection, master valves, flow meters and booster pumps that are otherwise too difficult or expensive to connect to the local controller at the site.
Connection Type: Wireless or Cabled
The ARAD Hydrometer is an industrial grade master valve and flow meter integrated into a single unit.
The master valve portion is a double-chambered hydraulically operated valve designed to operate under high pressure and is controlled with either a 24VAC or DC latching solenoid.
ARAD Hydrometers can be ordered as normally open (NO) or normally closed (NC) units and can be modified in the field with a NO or NC 24VAC or DC latching solenoid kit without having to remove the hydrometer.
The flow meter register is driven by the impeller through magnetic coupling leaving just one moving part, the impeller, in contact with the water.
The register is hermetically sealed in a stainless steel capsule with tempered glass and includes a totalizer to display the volume of water passed as well as a rotating leakage detector.
The flow meter uses a dry contact reed switch which requires no tools to remove, inspect, or replace. The register can be removed or installed without shutting down the hydrauic system.
The dry-contact reed switch for the flow meter and the valve activation solenoid can be conncted to any Motorola field controller with standard irrigation valve wiring and requires no specialized shielded or signal wire.
The ARAD Hydrometer has no "straight pipe requirement" on the water input or output for flow meter accuracy. The hydrometer can be installed in the downstream leg of a backflow prevention device for easy access and maintenance.
Available sizes --- 1.5", 2", 3", 4", 6", and 8".
