Intergrated Irrigation Field Control Module
The Carlyle IFMCD8 Manifold Module consists of an above-ground, 8-zone, prefabricated copper piping manifold, enclosed in a stainless steel outer shell. It is of modular design to allow for the addition of other Irrigation Field Control Modules, and/or integration with electronic Field Controllers of any manufacture. It is designed to incorporate antenna or other masts.

IRRInet Ace 3600
As a full featured part of the IRRInet control system, IRRInet-Ace is a modular field unit with a power supply, CPU and up to eight I/O modules.
Greater installation flexibility is provided with support for 3rd party sensors and PLC units as well as multiple communication options including broadband data over IP, various radio frequencies, cellular and an assortment of wireline options. This level of flexibility makes it suitable for new installations and easily migrates into existing IRRInet systems.
With DIOS connectivity, the IRRInet-Ace can activate Piccolo-XR units with its’ PIU functionality. On site programming is supported by pocket PC connectivity.
IRRInet M - AC & DC Models
A full featured part of the IRRInet control system, IRRInet-M supports three modes of operations:
- RTU - Performing all irrigation functions, reporting to the IRRInet Control Center (ICC).
- Stand Alone - Performing all irrigation functions as a stand-alone unit when the system is installed without an ICC.
- Remote I/O - Serving as a distributed I/O for another unit that performs all irrigation functions (applicable when multi-site control synchronization is needed.)
With DIOS connectivity, the IRRInet-M can activate Piccolo-XR units with its IU functionality. On site programming is supported by pocket PC connectivity.
WeatherCon is the ultimate EvapoTranspiration-based weather reporting and automatic irrigation adjustment system. WeatherCon works in sync with Motorola's ICC central software, controlling watering factors at the main line, crop type, field unit, and area or system level. Weather information from a customer's field or facilities is sent anywhere in the world utilizing Motorola's Water Management Control System with radio or IP capability.
In addition to ET values, the ICC system can display dozens of weather or other analog values including flow, pressure, and tank level from field units, a feature unique to the IRRInet system. The ICC can even perform IF-THEN scripting actions based on the real-time weather information - turning on a misting valve if the humidity drops below a certain level, or sending an alert to email and pager if freezing temperatures occur in the field - an industry exclusive!

The Piccolo RTU is a small sized unit that consists of electronic board, a 3-way latched solenoid, packed in an IP65 plastic housing. The unit energizes one latched solenoid and receives two digital inputs such as: water meter contact, level transducer, pressure gauge, etc.
The Piccolo RTU is connected in series on a standard cable (2 x 1.5 mm) for a distance of up to 10 km to an IRRInet Single Cable Module.
Up to 63 Piccolo RTUs may be hooked up along the cable. The Piccolo RTU is powered from the communication cable (no need for other power supply), which is connected to the Single Cable module in the IRRInet unit.
Three functions are available using the 2-wire cable:
- Power supply for the Piccolo’s electronic board.
- Commands to the local low-powered latch solenoid.
- Two data inputs from sensors transmitted to the IRRInet over the wires via the Single Cable module.
The Piccolo-XR RTU is a small sized unit which consists of electronic board packed in an IP66 waterproof plastic enclosure.
The unit operates up to 4 solenoids and receives up to 7 inputs (in different models). The Piccolo-XR also has analog I/O options.
The Piccolo-XR communicates via the two-way low-power radio with the PIU (Piccolo Interface Unit) which is attached to the IRRInet-XL, and with other Piccolo-XR units, for a distance of approximately 1 km, depending on the topography and antenna installation.
Up to 256 digital inputs
256 solenoid outputs
32 analog inputs
32 analog outputs of Piccolo-XR are supported per on IRRInet-XL unit
Power: External 6VDC battery
Ambient Temperature: -30°C to +60°C (-22°F to +140°F)
