The Dramm Corporation (Dramm), a Wisconsin-based irrigation company, is upgrading its irrigation control line with the introduction of its ProLine Irrigation Controller Series.

According to Dramm, the ProLine increases the number of outputs available while still remaining modular and expandable. Like its predecessor product, the ProLine offers basic timed irrigation cycles with multiple programs and start times.

The ProLine, with four available programs, allows for three of these to be active at one time, shortening irrigation cycle times when water is available.

The ProLine offers daily watering selection and manual functions allowing the grower to activate either a single valve or an entire program easily when needed. Seasonal adjustments allow for all irrigation cycles to be increased or decreased easily, without having to reprogram each valve.

Dramm says that the ProLine can be upgraded to allow connection from anywhere. Using an added AirCard and cellular service, growers can monitor and manage their irrigation from a smartphone app. This feature allows the user the ability to run a manual cycle, increase or decrease watering times and more, from across the facility or across the world.
