Galileo’s open field irrigation software is a unique application especially designed to provide a wide variety of irrigation solutions. It is suitable for small irrigation systems such as a small plots as well as for the large irrigation areas. Use of cable and radio RTU is fully supported. The software’s graphic capabilities allow users to see a realistic picture of the irrigated field.
The application enables up to 50 pipelines to interconnect, thus creating a network. Pipelines are set up similar to how they appear in the field.
This enables various remote operations, including: Setting up the hierarchy of main valves head definition and field valves. Ability of gradually open/close irrigation to prevent high pressure buildup. Limiting the flow rate to a pipeline in the case of bottle necks. Upon programming the limiting flow rate, the system prevents the actual flow rate to exceed the limit automatically. Prevention of definition errors .
The software supports up to 200 irrigation valves accumulating data relating to water/time and up to 7 different fertilizers.
The irrigation application also enables up to 100 water meters dividing the amount and flow rate of water measured by the water meter between the active valves. This unique ability allows for using one water meter for many valves, while at the same time operating each valve separately.
The software application allows for two fertilizing elements. Up to 40 local fertilizer pumps use a simple operation program that is part of the irrigation program. Up to 8 fertilizer centers enable operation of up to 6 fertilizer pumps, control of EC, pH, etc.
The software also manages up to 5 pump houses thanks to a special program. This enables easy operation of a combination of up to 5 water pumps and up to 20 water pumps in total.
The application also manages up to 20 virtual water meters by showing the total flow rate and the accumulation of water meters. Each virtual water meter can also display the balance of the flow rate at a certain point, which allows for the use of the element called Burst Control (Net Protection).
Up to 20 pause elements are part of the application program. If an element contains a condition input and/or a sensor (e.g., a pressure transducer), it can pause the pipeline it is connected to.
The application also supports up to 4 mixing junctions which controls the dilution of water. The result of e.g., mixing of drainage or salty water with fresh water complies with required EC.
The software application enables up to 200 irrigation programs.
Each irrigation program encompasses:
Up to 50 valves for operation
Quantity or duration
Local fertilizing pump
Selection of fertilizing program of fertilizer center
Over/under flow alarms
Start and stop time
Cyclic irrigation, Daily and conditional programming
