Solar Powered Movable (Tow able) Center Pivot Irrigator has a Center Pivot with 180 feet to 230 feet, boom, including 20’-30’ overhang, revolving around it, in 360 degrees, delivering water like rain. Water is applied at this stationery Pivot point. Special bearing holds the Coupler with Rubber Boot avoiding leakage, while total water carrying structure is rotating. A stable ‘A’ frame, 48 Volts 100-150 Watt, Geared DC Motor, coupled to a Heavy Duty Gear Box, ultimately drives the wheels with Low Pressure Tractor Tires, at maximum speed of about 6 feet / Minute, and can be reduced to 10% with the help of setting, in order to increase the water supply.
The yield is to the tune of 160-180% of the flood Irrigation, basically due to even distribution of Water, Liquid Fertilizers, Liquid Insecticides, Liquid weedicides which can be distributed along with water is an added feature of this machine. Water requirements reduce by 40 - 50%, thus reducing the pumping cost still further.
The use of Solar Power with storage batteries makes the machine operative, even during the nights, reducing the water requirements still further. The machine can be programmed to have any water scheduling. The Real Time Clock (RTC) in the logic controller takes care of the schedule in REAL TIME.
