The innovative Tucor systems will be marketed by Netafim and will include controllers with multi-function capabilities, including conventional, two-wire (decoder) and hybrid operation. The controllers will be applicable to new and retrofit installations.
"Netafim’s new controller product line will give landscape and irrigation contractors the opportunity to install a complete Netafim irrigation system from Techline¬ tubing to filters, regulators, valves, meters, and now, state-of-the-art controllers," said Troche.
"This partnership between two well-established brands guarantees product reliability and new system flexibility," he said. "It also underscores Netafim’s commitment to developing water-saving technologies that benefit both commercial and residential water users."
Netafim USA, which has manufactured landscape dripline products for 25 years, is a division of Netafim, the world’s largest drip irrigation manufacturer.
Tucor, a well-known name in two-wire systems, has produced a line of smart controllers since 1995. The company was among the first to introduce two-wire technology to the United States from Europe. Tucor also manufactures conventional multi-wire controllers.
