Finally -- affordable irrigation turnout automation: Watch Technologies' WT-100 Light Lift Actuator's low cost makes SCADA retrofit possible. Automation is the key to improving efficiency in water distribution. With automation comes real-time control, much less room for human error, and huge savings in fuel, transportation, equipment, and manpower.

Unique design: Unlike other companies' actuators that are increasingly complicated, expensive, and hard to fix, Watch Technologies invented sprocket and chain-driven actuators that are so simple by design anyone can assemble, operate, and maintain them. No calibration required. WT Gate Actuators fit any rising or non-rising stem gate or valve, and come in light, medium and heavy-lift.

Why solar? WT Light Lift Gate Actuators are the ONLY solar-ready actuators on the market available to retrofit existing gates and valves. Solar power eliminates the need for any AC power in remote environments; no additional cost for solar or AC actuator power applications.

With or without a “brain:” With an embedded, programmable controller, WT Gate Actuators manage flow, levels, and scheduled operations either stand-alone, or connected to a larger SCADA system. WT Gate Actuators allow external sensor input and can run multiple gates.

Instant fit with all Watch Technologies integrated products: WT is the ONLY company that designs and manufactures innovative sluice gates of all sizes, actuators, and SCADA systems that all link together seamlessly and cost efficiently -- no system integration required.
