ESP-LXIVM Series From Rain Bird
Rain Bird’s ESP-LXIVM Series consists of two easy-to-use controllers for two-wire irrigation systems that provide large, challenging sites with advanced water management tools and diagnostics. The standard model can support up to 60 stations, while the “Pro” model can manage larger sites with up to 240 stations. Both feature Rain Bird’s new Integrated Valve Module (IVM), a “smart valve” that maintains constant communication with the controller. The IVM also eliminates the need for a decoder, cutting the quantity of wire splices in half. The LXIVM’s diagnostics include a “Self-Healing” feature that automatically detects fixes to wire path and splice issues and restarts irrigation without manual intervention. A “Two-Wire Mapping” feature maps integrated devices to corresponding wire paths to find and resolve issues. Supported field devices include the IVM-SOL, IVM-OUT, IVM-SEN, and the IVM-SD. Advanced flow management tools alert users to high- and low-flow conditions and manage hydraulic demand.
Simplicity3hp From Munro
The Munro Simplicity series pump stations offer low-maintenance, high-value, and professional-grade design. The new 3hp model fits a niche for smaller commercial, agricultural, and residential irrigation systems that can benefit from the control and energy efficiency offered by a VFD (variable frequency drive). These self-contained UL-QCZJ pumping stations are simple to specify with high quality specs and drawings available, simple to install with free phone-in commissioning support, and simple to maintain with maintenance support training and tools. The pump is a critical component for many irrigation systems, and these lower horsepower packaged pump stations with integrated VFDs fit an industry need.

Among the controller’s features is Predictive Watering™, which adjusts irrigation schedules based on local, real-time temperature, rainfall probability, wind, and humidity. A built-in milliamp sensor makes troubleshooting wiring issues easy. Users can manage the controller from anywhere using a smartphone, tablet, or computer.
RPS Select Rotor From K-Rain
Winner of the Product Innovation Award at the International Sustainable Irrigation Expo (EIRS) tradeshow, the K-Rain RPS™ Select rotary sprinkler is a gear-driven sprinkler that makes matched precipitation fast and easy, without the need to change nozzles in the field. It offers a choice of four selectable built-in nozzles. With a twist of a flathead screwdriver, select the correct nozzle to match the arc setting of the sprinkler or landscape. There are no nozzle trees to carry or lose. Using a combination of the four nozzles, users can achieve matched precipitation across all arc settings. The four built-in nozzles also make RPS™ Select a convenient universal replacement sprinkler for other brands. The Universal Riser Assembly fits into existing Hunter® PGP® and PGP® Ultra cans.
