Reliable remote irrigation management from Valley combines the ability to monitor soil moisture status with remote monitoring/control of centre pivot or linear irrigation equipment with the introduction of BaseStation2-SM. The BaseStation2-SM is a dedicated, centralised irrigation management system for your home or office computer, custom-designed for your application by Valmont.

With BaseStation2-SM, growers can do, among other things:

  • Control and monitor your linears and centre pivots without driving to the field
  • Features specialized language options: French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian displays available
  • Voice call-out is available
  • Linears can be managed with the use of the AutoPilot Linear control panel (with optional GPS)
  • Updated linear mapping function now includes drawings of hydrants, swing-around function, hose feed, and ditch feed
  • Screen display of the AutoPilot Linear control panel now includes graphical buttons
  • Included Watermark soil moisture monitors by Irrometer, which can be ordered directly through Valmont

With use of the BaseStation2-SM, growers will need PanelLink in order to:

  • Control and monitor non-Valley control panels and non-computerised Valley control panels
  • Allow BaseStation2-SM to interpret change in status messages
