Welcome to NIWA's Instrument Systems Update. The 2009 irrigation season has started!
The NIWA Instrument Systems team is heavily involved in designing, building, installing, commissioning, and supporting state-of-the-art irrigation technology; we also manage data generated by our instruments. Here we bring you news of some of our latest technology and projects.
NIWA’s Instrument Systems team has just commissioned three new state-of-the-art water monitoring and control stations on the Waimakariri Irrigation Scheme, one of the largest schemes in the South Island.
Meet the Miniflume, a new system we have developed to automatically and accurately control the abstraction of small volumes of irrigation water. The system is ideal, for example, to control water abstraction when filling a farm storage dam.
