Designation of the Controller I/O Terminals:

  • I1: Dry running sensor ( outputs 1 when there is no water in pipes)
  • I2: Sand separator is working ( outputs 1 when Sand separator is working)
  • I3: Reset sand separator (when user presses a button, system resets its state)
  • AI1: Humidity sensor 1 ( gives value of humidity of soil )
  • AI2: Humidity sensor 2 ( gives value of humidity of soil )
  • AI3: Pressure in sand filter (gives value of pressure in sand filter)

  • Q1: Water pump
  • Q2: Sand separator
  • Q3: “Non return” valve
  • Q4: “Bypass” valve

System is designed to automatically start watering plants when low soil-humidity is detected. Before the water pump is activated, the system checks if any safety sensors are triggered, if so pump activation is aborted.

Safety sensors are:

  • Dry running sensor, which is triggered if there is no water in pipes
  • Pressure sensor, which is triggered if pressure in sand filter is above limits
  • Sand separator is malfunctioned, which is triggered if sand separator is not working


Systems self protection

After the water pump is activated, the system starts monitoring if the sand separator is functional. If in some moment the sand separator stops, after 30 seconds self protection is activated.

Self protection procedure is consisted of:

  • Turning OFF water pump
  • Closing "Non return" valve
  • Opening "Bypass" valve

This way the system will be self-preserved in case that some of its parts are no longer functional.

After self protection is activated, the user is intended to replace/fix the malfunctioning part and press reset button. This way system sensors will be reseted and the system will try to run once more.

Optimal Water Management with Smart Technology

Elevate your crop yield while conserving water with our intelligent PR200 controller. Programmed for perfection, this device regulates water flow based on real-time data from our high-precision pressure sensors, ensuring each plant receives the exact amount of water it needs.

Reliable Monitoring with Akytec Pressure Sensors

Partnered with the PR200, our durable pressure sensors deliver accurate readings to your PLC, allowing you to adjust for optimal water pressure across all irrigation lines. Avoid water stress on your plants and prevent over-irrigation, all while reducing your water usage and costs.

Effortless Integration and Customization

Our systems are designed for easy integration with a programmable logic controller (PLC) equipped with a custom program tailored to meet the unique needs of your farm. Experience hassle-free installation and customization that adapts to your growth and changes in environmental conditions.

Sustainable Farming with Immediate Benefits

  • Increased Crop Yield: Ensure every drop counts towards growing healthier, more robust crops.
  • Reduced Water Waste: Cut down on water expenses with an automated system that eliminates guesswork.
  • Energy Efficiency: Less water pumping equals reduced energy usage and lower electricity bills.
  • Data-Driven Decisions: Leverage real-time data to make informed decisions that boost productivity.

Take the lead in agricultural innovation with Akytec's automated irrigation solutions. Embrace the future of farming today and watch your efficiency soar and your costs plummet.
