Hummbox Electrovalve Controller (EVC)

HummBox Electrovalve Controller is a long range radio valve programmer. The box is 100% waterproof and autonomous. Thanks to its Sigfox or LoRaWan connectivity, the box is connected to public networks and does not require any other infrastructure (no need for a base station or base station or electrical wiring). It also has the ability to collect data from a water meter or a rain gauge.
or a rain gauge.

Connected Solenoid Valve Controller

  • Solenoid valve control, up to 4 9V solenoid valves (or 24V as an option with an extension box)
  • Possible connection of a water meter or a rain gauge

 

Applications : Smart Watering of green spaces, Agricultural irrigation, Green walls and roofs

Network compatibility: Sigfox, LoRaWAN (private or operated)

This sensor works with an external push button required for start-up, installation and reboot. Make sure you have this accessory to use the Solenoid Valve Controller (See here).
It is not necessary to have 1 push button per Hummbox EVC (Electrovalve Controller).
