Rubicon has a range of TCC solutions to automate irrigation district operations, from controlling flow rates and water levels in channels through to the automation of processes such as the collection and scheduling of water delivery requests. With a TCC solution, your investment in automation is future-proof because our hardware and software components are modular. Modularity means that and each solution is designed to be built upon in future automation projects, so you can automate additional areas of your business or infrastructure over time as your needs change.
Using a keypad interface, you can instruct a FlumeGate or SlipMeter (and a SlipGate if it is combined with a level sensor or flow meter) to automatically maintain a flow rate or water level. Or you can use our range of meters to accurately measure flow rate and volume. With fully integrated solar power, batteries, measurement and control, Rubicon's automated devices are simple to install, operate and maintain.
With the Network Control solution, FlumeGates automatically maintain water levels along the length of a channel, providing more consistent and reliable flows through farm service points. All farmers receive the same, quality service whether they are towards the beginning of the end of a channel system.
By combining the Operations Automation and Network Control solutions, the control of the entire network of canals is improved further so that the achievable delivery capacity is optimized and the delivery of water to farmers can be made almost on-demand. Farmers can be confident that their automated turnouts deliver high, consistent flows, and an accurately measured quantity, day or night. At the same time, operational spills can be eliminated, operator safety enhanced, and internal processes streamlined to provide better service to farmers at reduced cost.
