SingleNet

SingleNet Single Cable Control System

The SingleNet System's reliability and ease of use addresses many of the concerns most growers have with multi-wire controller systems. It's not complicated to install or operate. The Netafim SingleNet System is ideal for new installations or retrofits of existing systems.

Features & Benefits

  • Multiple Valve Control
    With the SingleNet System, there are no limitations on simultaneous multiple valve operations. Only the Netafim system is flexible enough to operate both 12VDC latching solenoids, two or three wire, and relays. Latching solenoids do not require constant power, therefore, power consumption is minimized.
  • Fast Output Reaction and Communication
    Fast output reaction is ideal when valves need to operate for short periods enabling high-frequency irrigation and cooling applications.
  • Diagnostic Capabilities
    The PoleNET software, included with each SingleNet Interface Unit, provides monitoring of voltage and currents. PoleNET software can also be used as a diagnostic tool for monitoring and displaying communication issues between the SingleNet Interface Unit and the SingleNet RTUs. Large graphic backlit LCD display for easy programming.
  • Expandability
    Expansion is quick and easy as units can be added from any point in the existing system. SingleNet RTUs are designed for seamless integration into an existing SingleNet System allowing network growth and expansion at a reduced cost. Labor, materials, and operating costs are dramatically reduced.
  • Surge Protection and Lightning Resistance
    The design of the SingleNet Cable provides excellent durability and surge protection. Lightning resistance is provided by the optional Interface Lightning Suppression Module and the RTU Lightning Suppression Cards which are installed within an individual SingleNet RTU. Both provide improved suppression of high voltages generated by lightning strikes in the vicinity of Interface Units and RTUs.
  • Unique Two-Wire Cable
    SingleNet Cable is specifically designed to work with the entire SingleNet System. Two 16 AWG wires are inserted in flexible conduit and shipped ready to install. SingleNet Cable can be direct buried reducing susceptibility to mechanical and electrical damage. The twisted pair configuration is shielded to reduce "noise" and protect the system against induced voltages. The wires' low capacitance allows longer cable run lengths - up to 6 miles maximum total cable length.
  • Two Interface Connection Options
    Interface units and cards allow the SingleNet System to be used with the Netafim NMC Pro System Manager or any existing 12VDC non-latching or 24VAC controller.

SingleNet System Components

  • System Manager or Irrigation Controller
    For control of irrigation programs and all system functions, Netafim's NMC Pro System Manager or any 12VDC non-latching or 24VAC controller can be used with the SingleNet System. A three-wire cable and communication card connect the NMC Pro System Manager to the SingleNet Interface Unit.
  • SingleNet Interface Unit
    Takes information from the system manager or irrigation controller and converts it to a signal that controls the SingleNet RTUs. The SingleNet Interface Unit is programmed through a PC with PoleNET software. It can communicate and control up to 255 valves (latching outputs) in a single network.
  • Interface Lightning Suppression Module
    Provides protection from voltage surges caused by power spikes and/or lightning. The Interface Lightning Suppression Module is a stand-alone unit installed close to the SingleNet Interface Unit.
  • SingleNet Remote Terminal Unit (RTU)
    Each SingleNet RTU is individually addressed at installation to receive commands from the Interface Unit to operate field valves. The RTU can send digital signals from inputs like water meters back to the system manager or irrigation controller through the SingleNet Interface Unit. SingleNet RTUs are available with two or four digital outputs and inputs which connect to either two or three-wire DC latching solenoids. An LED indicator on the RTU visually identifies successful communication back to the system manager or irrigation controller.
  • RTU Lightning Suppression Card
    Provides the same type of voltage surge protection as the Interface Lightning Suppression Module but is installed inside a SingleNet RTU enclosure. The quantity and placement of RTU Lightning Suppression Cards, in the SingleNet RTU units within a network, is determined by the specific area's susceptibility to lightning strikes.
  • SingleNet Cable
    Two low capacitance wires and a drain wire, 16 AWG, are pre-packaged as a single cable inside a polyethylene sheath (1/2" conduit). The drain wire provides grounding. The twisted pair configuration provides better flexibility, is shielded to reduce "noise", lowers electrical resistance and protects against induced voltages. Tinned leads reduce corrosion and are solder friendly. The cable is waterproof, UV and chemical resistant. Maximum cable run length is 6 miles. Available in 1000' or 2500' length reels.
