Page 24 of 31 25 l IRRIGATION ACCESSORIES CO. (IACO) (360) 896-9440 BOOMBACK AUTOMATION In conjunction with FluidPulse and its ValveCommander latching solenoid, IACO has achieved a breakthrough in bringing a dry wheel track solution to wipers, linears and center pivots that alternate directions. e ValveCommander replaces two three-way solenoids with a single four-way solenoid. is enables the use of much simpler valves, reducing friction loss and overall cost. IACO has engineered a reliable switching system, wired into an existing tower box, that activates the trailing set of Boombacks. When the pivot changes direction, the first set turns off, and the now-trailing set of Boombacks turns on. QUAD POD e Quad Pod by IACO is a standalone support structure that transforms a traditional handline into an automated irrigation system. Designed to work with a Big Gun, a valve and a wireless control, the Quad Pod easily and effectively automates water application in feedlots, diaries, pastures, berry plantings, sugarcane fields and irregular-shaped areas like pivot corners. Quad Pod allows irrigators to: • Set up simple and reliable zone cycling; • Customize irrigation run times for different soil conditions, even within the same field; • Set up a grid with enough Quad Pods and valves, thereby requiring the irrigator only to move the Big Gun and wireless control, even while the handline is pressurized. l TUCTRONICS (509) 301-0640 • AGRINET Tuctronics is a family partnership that has been engineering telemetry products for control and monitoring in agriculture for over 20 years.
