FERTOMAT

A self-contained fertilizer injection controller, functions either as an independent stand-alone unit or as an extension to any irrigation controller in the market. Controls up to 8 fertilizer injectors. User-defined formulas define the fertilizer dosage and/or the proportion to be injected by each injector.

  • Available in two sizes: for 4 or 8 fertilizer injectors.
  • Optional booster pump activation.
  • 3 selectable formulas define the dosages and the injection mode.
  • Volumetric or time based dosage defined individually per each injector.
  • Continuous or proportional injection modes defined individually per each injector in each formula.
  • Water before definable per each injector in each formula.
  • When used Independently operation is triggered by water meter pulses.
  • When used in conjunction with external irrigation control operation is triggered by 3 dry contact inputs through which injection of the desired formula is requested.
  • Manual activation of selected formula.
  • Manual “Freeze” command to halt automatic activity.
  • Solenoids testing mode.
  • Reporting current status.
  • Reporting actual concentration.
  • Reporting accumulation of consumed water and fertilizers.
  • Detects and reports various malfunctions.

As a stand alone unit the injection is triggered either by direct user command or by the pulses received from the water meter. When triggered by water meter pulses the fertilization continues as long as the pulses of the water meter are detected. The process terminates when no more pulses arrive from the water meter for a predefined period.

When combined with an irrigation controller, the FERTOMAT actually enhances the power of the controller by expanding the number of controllable fertilizer injectors. Controllers that do not have fertilization ability at all or those that are limited to one or two fertilizers only will now be able to control up to 8 fertilizer injectors. By use of 1,2 or 3 dry contacts the irrigation controller signals the FERTOMAT when to start fertilizing and which formula to use during the next fertigation process.

The user defines up to 3 formulas. In each formula he specifies the fertilizer/ water concentration of each fertilizer required and/or the total quantity requested of each kind.

The FERTOMAT can be used with or without connection to water meter and with or without fertilizer meters. Volumetric or time based dosage can be selected per each injector and the injection can be continuous or proportional by user definition. When the proportional fertigation is selected all the combinations are possible volume/volume, time/time, time/volume and volume/time.

In case of using Ventury injectors a booster pump activation can be required. The FERTOMAT enables to define for each injector whether or not the booster pump activation is required.

During operation, the actual status displays show the currently active formula, the status of the outputs and inputs, the actual concentration and the quantities supplied since the last injection process started.

The user is able to define how much water is to be supplied before starting the injection. Each fertilizer injector in each formula can have its individual definition of water before, this enables to start the injection of each fertilizer at the desired stage of irrigation.

In spite of the richness of features the use of the FERTOMAT can be very friendly. During the setup procedure, only the required features can be selected, reducing the number of parameters the user has to deal with to the necessary minimum.
