OASIS™ Water Management
CENTRAL CONTROL SOFTWARE MODULE
Advanced Irrigation Management is an add-on module that can be used with
either the Evolution Central or Central-Lite software programs. It operates
under Windows® 2000 or XP operating systems.
On a daily basis, the software automatically selects, prioritizes, and
assigns valve stations into special sequences that optimize irrigation performance.
This optimization is accomplished by the software scheduling irrigation
stations independently from their respective controller locations. These
optimized irrigation schedules can be viewed graphically in advance allowing
irrigation managers to confirm or modify projected irrigation events.
SYSTEM FLOW MANAGEMENT
The software precisely controls the rate of flow at pumps and at any
point in a main line system. These points are designated as flow nodes and
are user defined. Establishing flow nodes allows the system's flow capacity
to be maximized without causing excessive water velocity or pressure loss.
Maximizing flow capacity compresses total irrigation time and allows for
shorter watering windows.
Utilizing the power of advanced computer technology; the software allows
the user to easily modify the station database with just a few keystrokes.
This incredibly powerful feature eliminates the tedious work of adjusting
hundreds of programs or thousands of stations one by one. The user simply
selects one or more station parameters and a group of stations containing
those like parameters is displayed. Then, one or more station parameters
within this group can be quickly modified. Additionally, stations can be
assigned special attribute parameters (plant type, microclimate, special
function etc.) for even faster access of commonly adjusted stations.
EASE OF USE
Although very comprehensive, the Advanced Irrigation Management software
is very easy to use. It seamlessly integrates with the Evolution Central
System Programs including the Rain Master's unique Advanced-ET software
module. Setting parameters, selecting options, and making global adjustments
is simple and fast with the graphical point-and-click interface.
