We are excited to announce that four brand new Agrico tautliners are on the road. These new additions to our fleet will further enhance our logistical capabilities and ensure that the optimal irrigation solution is making its way to you. Take alook at some photos of these behemoths!
Current transformers for Pump Controllers
Say hello to the latest feature addition for our Web Control Pump Controllers. Our Pump Controller now supports up to four current transformers to be connected simultaneously. The result? Reliable and accurate current measurement of your devices with an added fault detection system to automatically disable your pumps if a fault occurs.
Since the launch of our Pump Controller, we have transformed irrigation in Southern Africa by allowing precise control of one or several pumps. We have saved our customers millions of kilowatt-hours of energy by matching the supply of water from pumps with the demand from the irrigation systems. The pump controller can control any motor starter from a simple electromechanical starter to a sophisticated variable frequency drive (VFD). The system allows you to maximise energy optimisation.
The pump controller will be able to read RMS current from four CTs making it accurate.
The four CTs will be connected to the four relays of the pump controller and will be able to start/stop four pumps.
Each CT has its own min/max ampere and trip time (in seconds) enabling multiple fault detection.
It will enable the pump controller to stop for fault conditions such as output overcurrent, output undercurrent, and no communication.
Can be configured for reporting current only or to react on fault condition.
Can be used with old and new pump controllers.
Will be able to view measured current on the Web Control platform.

The rich soil of Norsa farm provides the perfect growing spot for pineapple. But with a significant height difference between the water source and crops, designing an efficient irrigation system is not a straightforward task. In 2016, Rhodes food group entrusted the irrigation giant Agrico to design an irrigation system for the cultivation of pineapples here.
The need to improve load capacity and mitigate energy costs was the primary catalyst behind the recent installation of a solar energy system near Ohrigstad. Agrico Tzaneen wanted to ensure their client Cor Cross enjoyed uninterrupted irrigation and minimal crop and yield losses. With some help, they pulled off a solar system which achieves exactly this.
Agrico lewer ’n verskeidenheid produkte, maar in ons hart is besproeiing die fokus. Dit is ook wat ons hierdie jaar gaan demonstreer by NAMPO Kaap, wat plaasvind 13 – 16 September 2023 in Bredasdorp. Kom maak ‘n draai en vra jou vrae. Ons sien uit om jou te help om jou optimale en mees doeltreffende besproeiingsoplossing te ontdek!
