FlowStation™

A Powerful Solution for Shared Flow

The FlowStation is a powerful shared flow controller that allows up to 20 BaseStation 3200 irrigation controllers to share water resources. Whether you have one large mainline across a property, or you are combining controllers across multiple mainlines, the FlowStation offers the features and flexibility to tackle the job.

 

With the FlowStation, you can share up to 20 separate water sources and 20 separate control points with each control point assigned to one of 40 shared mainlines. The FlowStation will intelligently manage each mainline and allocate water resources among the connected BaseStation 3200 controllers.

 

Advanced Features for Irrigation Water Management

Flow Monitoring: With the FlowStation, you have the ability to monitor for high and unexpected flow events. The FlowStation will take action when a flow fault is detected and discontinue use of the faulted control point.
 

Flow Management: The FlowStation maximizes the number of valves and controllers that can operate at once based on the amount of water that is available which dramatically reduces water windows.
 

Site Management: The FlowStation supports advanced features such as program priorities, start, stop and pause conditions, and water budgets.
 

Remote Control: With the FlowStation app you can remotely configure and manage your FlowStation from a desktop, tablet, or mobile device.

 

Get quick access to program controllers, share flow between them, and then manage the entire scope of hydraulics.

The FlowStation app is a cloud-based, shared-flow configuration and programming app that allows you to easily:

  • Design flows for Water Source, Points of Control, and Mainlines
  • Define operational delays based on time or pressure for system stabilization
  • Assign Zones to Mainlines for optimized flow resolution

To access the FlowStation app you must have access to AppManager and subscribe to the FlowStation app (part number: BL-APPMGR-FL).
