Valmont Irrigation recently introduced the cams Tracker SP, allowing growers the ability to remotely monitor and control many pivot operations and activity, including field position.

The cams Tracker SP works jointly with the cams Select or Pro panel via the cams Tracker Communications Center. Once the communications link is established, growers may control many pivot operations, including: pivot direction, starting and stopping, running with or without water and managing auxiliary controls.

John Gardner, product sales manager, said the cams Tracker SP is a great option for growers who want lower costs and increased efficiency. “Our new cams Tracker SP remote system was designed to cut down on trips to check on pivots, thereby saving farmers time and money,” he said. “Efficiency is the key to success for farmers. Giving them the ability to remotely control their pivot positioning and safety circuit monitoring, in addition to other control options, helps to maximize their efficiency.”

As with the cams Tracker, the Tracker SP will notify the farmer with an alarm message either with a phone call, cell phone text message, or e-mail if a problem occurs, not only increasing efficiency, but ultimately reducing pumping costs as well.
