VA60-16 is a low-priced high-quality irrigation controller that is very simple to operate. With VA60-16, an exact control of the time and start of irrigation – just when the plants need water – is ensured. The irrigation time is adjusted for each valve with the rotary switch and is started by pushing a button. If automatic starts are required, the VA60-16 is available with a time-switch that can be adjusted to fxed irrigation times, or a tensiometer may be connected that will start an irrigation when the soil or the irrigation mat has dried out.
With the VA60-16, it is possible to set a separate start for each valve. This is highly beneficial as not all plants need water at the same time. There is a diﬀerence between the various cultures in the house or in the developmental stage of the plants. Unique for the irrigation controller VA60-16 is the possibility of starting irrigation in every single irrigation group separately, just when the plants in this group require water. By connecting an external sensor such as a tensiometer or a start tray, the valve will start independent of the remaining valves in the irrigation controller.
Depending on the pump capacity, several VA60-16 controllers can also be set to start simultaneously. If the water capacity only permits one valve to irrigate at a time the irrigation controllers can be connected in a chain. When irrigation is started, and the 16 valves in the first irrigation controller have run through the irrigation time, the start signal will be passed on to the next controllers. This option is also useful if all irrigations are to be controlled by means of one external start, for example a solar integrator or a joint start tray.
As an extra safety function, the irrigation controller will release an alarm if the irrigation causes problems, for example if no water reaches the plants
