Box mounted Aquaterr Valve Actuating Receivers are ideal for high traffic turf applications, especially where vandalism needs to be discouraged and avoided. Whether your current system is manual or wired, if you are ready to implement an automated irrigation plan, Aquaterr’s Wireless System may be your best option.
Install level with Terrain – on existing or new valve box. The operating components are safely concealed from the environment
in a watertight enclosure with no external or protruding objects,
minimizing the threat of vandalism.
Non-line-of-sight radio signals. line-of-sight transmitters have to be
able to “see” their receivers. Obstacles like buildings, trees and hills
block transmissions. With Aquaterr’s wireless system, these obstacles
are transparent. Non-line-of-sight also transmits further, which is why
the Aquaterr VAR will reliably receive signals for a radius of two miles.
Lowest cost to automate. The cost of the Aquaterr system is far
less expensive than the cost to dig and bury wires. It is more cost
effective to replace buried wire systems with the Aquaterr wireless
VAR system than to continuously repair wires that have been chewed
by varmints or damaged by earth moving equipment.
Qualifies for water conservation rebates by governments
throughout the world when equipped with optional moisture
sensors. Check with your local governing agencies to see if a rebate
may apply to you. When sensors are used, watering is only permitted
when soil moisture properties require watering, as individually
programmed for your watering needs. Sensors buried at various
depths determine if watering should begin. Safety overrides are individually programmed for each valve to prevent over watering.
Solar Panels keep Actuators powered up, and when powered-up,
can function for several weeks without sunshine! The rechargeable batteries last up to five (5) years before replacement.
No radio license purchase is required for this radio system and no
cellular phone bills. These radio communication airwaves are free!
