Remote Center Pivot Control Enhanced

In addition to being able to shut down multiple center pivot sprinklers simultaneously, the enhanced FieldNET mobile app announced by Lindsay Corporation today at the Commodity Classic show in Anaheim, California, also allows producers to enable or disable auto-restart and auto-reverse functions.

“The new app delivers many new features and enhancements to FieldNET customers, several of which come in response to past customer requests,” says Reece Andrews of Lindsay.

In addition to the features mentioned before, the FieldNET app offers:

  • End gun controls.
  • Views of pivot operations.
  • Display times remaining for current circle or until the next stop.
  • Status alerts now delivered via push notification, if desired.
  • An improved one-touch method to access a free demonstration.

The FieldNet app offers full remote access from smartphones or tablets to center pivots as well as pumps, injectors, and add-on sensors such as soil moisture monitors or weather stations. In addition, growers, agronomists, and other advisers can upload custom variable-rate irrigation prescriptions to FieldNet with exported files from their precision ag software platforms.
