Net Irrigate, a manufacturer of wireless agricultural irrigation monitoring (WAIM) technology, is excited to announce WireRat 4.0, an update to its WireRat technology that offers pivot owners new benefits like the ability to self-test the system and increased battery performance. Since its release in 2011, WireRat technology has become the agriculture industry’s best selling alarm solution for copper theft on center pivot irrigation systems and additional agriculture equipment.

WireRat technology offers farmers the ability to better protect the valuable copper wire on their pivot irrigation systems and other equipment by immediately sending alerts to their phone when a span cable is cut. The technology works seamlessly with all brands of center pivots and requires no external power. New for the WireRat 4.0 is the ability to self-test by simulating span cable cuts without causing any damage to your equipment. Every month the system will auto-test the copper wire, ensuring the alarm is not compromised during the off season.

“In the past, the only absolute way to test the alarm would be by actually disconnecting conductors or cutting wire,” said Edward DeSalle, CEO of Net Irrigate. “The new WireRat technology reduces the risk of the alarm becoming inadvertently disarmed due to pivot maintenance and eliminates the need for physical testing, saving farmers valuable time.”

WireRat 4.0 also includes increased battery performance, with a battery pack design that can last up to seven years with average pivot usage, representing a 40 percent increase over the previous version.

"Farmers are extraordinarily busy people with plenty to worry about,” said Scott Young, service technician at Chester Inc. Ag Systems in North Judson, Ind. “A copper theft alarm system that auto tests itself and lasts for multiple years undoubtedly will create peace of mind for farmers, especially in the off season. The WireRat 4.0 technology definitely helps combat the copper theft problem that continues to plague agriculture."

In addition to the ability to self-test and increased battery performance, the new technology now also operates globally, with the ability to deliver voice, email and text notifications to recipients in more than 170 countries.

Net Irrigate is now taking pre-orders for WireRat 4.0 enabled devices, with the first shipment going out October 1. For more information on WireRat 4.0, visit http://www.netirrigate.com/
