Bentrons Flexible irrigation computer

Our client:

As a specialist in the field of garden watering and irrigation, Bentrons has been selling irrigation computers for the professional market. Gardeners, growers and horticulturists have been using the Bentrons irrigation computers in their projects for many years.

Problem definition:

Bentrons product portfolio consisted of a large number of different irrigation computers, all covering a certain part of the market segment. This had a number of disadvantages:

  • High stock and logistics costs due to the many different types of computers and related items;
  • Little flexibility and growth possibilities in the solutions offered by the old irrigation computers;
  • The relatively high cost price of the products meant that they were only applicable and accessible to the professional market.

Brunelco was asked to develop a new irrigation computer to overcome these disadvantages.

The solution:
Together with the knowledge and experience that Bentrons has gained from previous irrigation computers, Brunelco contributed its knowledge and developed two highly flexible irrigation computers.

The IRRCO10X is an irrigation computer that can easily replace all old types of irrigation computers due to its modular structure. As a result, a suitable solution is now available for every issue in the field of automatic irrigation, garden watering and rain machines for the professional customers of Refraco!

In addition to the IRRCO10X, a simple version has also been developed especially for the private market. The IRCCO11 makes automated irrigation of private gardens accessible now! At low purchase and installation costs, an irrigation system equipped with the IRCCO11 prevents damage caused by dehydration of plants and trees during absence.
