Automated Siphon Raising & Lowering

Remove the need for 2a.m. site visits to check on irrigation events. No need to drive around the farm to check on siphon status and irrigation progress. The EFAC automatically raises and lowers siphons, while monitoring water levels and flow. Schedules can be configured based on time, water delivered or even by receiving triggers from connected sensors in furrows such as the Water Advance Beacon. 

System monitoring to manage battery solar recharging. Monitoring of actuator currents and overload protection built in. High power outputs for driving actuators, motors, pumps and more.

Robust UV resistant, weather and waterproof IP66 design, suitable for long-term deployment in harsh environmental conditions. Powder coated aluminium construction with stainless steel fasteners.


Flexible Cloud & Wireless Technology

Whether your EFAC forms part of a LoRa or local wireless network, or you prefer your data going straight to the Cloud, we’ve got you covered. The modular nature of EnviroNode technology makes supporting your site’s particular needs a breeze.
