GRANTS PASS, OREGON – MARCH 27, 2012 – Bosch Irrigation Limited has selected Watch Technologies to provide an internet-based control system to monitor and control the flow of water to 55 farms from a new pipeline in Ashburton, New Zealand.
Watch Technologies (WT) will install 70 RTUs (Remote Terminal Units) to collect, monitor, and distribute data from each farm to a base station. The new control system will control water flow on pasture land that is primarily for dairy, covering an area of approximately 375 square kilometers.
Christchurch-based Bosch specializes in irrigation systems for pasture lands. Bosch’s selection of WT as subcontractor was based on WT’s 30 years’ experience in data collection, and remote monitoring and control systems.
