As well as the User Manual, the kit includes the following components:

  • waterproof irrigation controller with solar charge controller inside
  • float switch
  • light sensor
  • solenoid valve with fittings to connect to 19 mm poly pipe and 2.5 metres of waterproof electrical cable
  • adjustable dripper
  • 12 waterproof connectors for electrical wire


Working pressure 10 - 800 kPa

Maximum flow rate at 100 kPa is greater than 500 L/h

Suitable for both gravity feed and pressurised irrigation


The kit does not include the solar panel, the battery, or the evaporator.


  1. Fully automatic
  2. Smart irrigation controller – the irrigation is controlled by the prevailing weather conditions rather than a program
  3. A light sensor provides the option of irrigating at night time only without using a timer
  4. You can adjust the water usage by adjusting the control dripper
  5. The water usage is directly proportional to the net evaporation rate
    a unique feature of measured irrigation
  6. Respond appropriately when there is an unexpected heat wave
  7. When it rains, water enters the evaporator and delays the start of the next irrigation
  8. The water usage is independent of the water supply pressure
    a unique feature of measured irrigation
  9. Uses much less water without affecting the yield
  10. Simple and low tech and so there are fewer things to go wrong
