Model VXD Series - Central Tower
From Center Pivots
The central structure of the Irrifrance pivot is resistant to any ordeals. Cemented in place, it perfectly absorbs the stresses caused by the site's landform and the rotational motion of the device.
A watertight main located on top of the central structure and easily accessed.Equipped with 11 locking rings, it ensures all electrical connections between the switchgear console and the movable rows.
Gradually stops the supply to the pivot or to the spray-line when rotation is over, and allows automatic shut-off when secured from all other electronic controls.Available in 3”, 4”, or 6”

Watertight integrity: storm doors, it regroups all the control commands and is up to severe security standards. Components have been selected for their highly recognized reliability. Wiring is well cared for and all wires are colour coded at both ends. Speed regulation enables a very precise measurement of the water quantity. The Irrifrance switchgear console is made to manage fertigation and chemical irrigation. Other extra features: anti-wheel slipping, protection against ground discharge, timing...
The PIVOCONTROL: Planning and control system
The pivocontrolenables programming of correct proportional irrigation (time and percentage), as well as start time, multi cycle programming, and a permanent visual display of the watered area.
It permanently keeps users informed:
- Displays the starting time and time left for a selected area or for the whole program.
- Possible malfunctions (pressure, electricity,...).
The PIVODOSEUR: Planning and control system BY AREA
The pivodoseur enables programming of quantity, percentage or timing, by area or program:
- Water quantity by area (in mm)
- Total water quantity compared with the elapsed watering time by program
- Timing start, inversion and end
- Options and security management
- Positioning display and status of the pivot.
Planning and control with GSM transmission
Withthe Pivodoser or the Pivocontrol combined with a GSM modem, it is possible to send information to the irrigation tower by cellular phone :
- Program irrigation sequences with a cellular phone,
- Receive information from the tower concerning the running program,
- Informs user on how watering is going and helps localize any possible malfunctions
Communication is sent and received under the form of SMS messages.
Planning and control with remote administration
The supervisory program allows remote programming via Internet, enabling real time checking and control of movements thanks to the information sent by the irrigation towers.
Each tower sends real time information to the supervisory program in case of trouble (pressure trouble, electric shutdown... ).
