VALLEY, Neb. (Sept. 3, 2019) – Valley® Irrigation, The Leader in Precision Irrigation®, is
proud to announce another industry first: the ability to push updates “over the air” to
their ICON® control panels. This ag tech advancement is available automatically through
the built-in Valley ICON Link.
Over-the-air updates will make irrigation management much simpler and less time consuming
• This industry-first feature ensures ICON panels are kept up to date with the latest
improvements. Updates pushed wirelessly over the cloud mean growers no
longer have to update panels in-field via a USB drive or direct connection.
• These over-the-air updates will save growers the expense of a service call when
installing firmware updates, as well as the time driving to each control panel and
manually installing them.
• In addition, it will allow even more responsive service from Valley dealers and
technicians; the latest updates can be pushed out to everyone instantly, rather
than taking multiple trips to the field.
• The Valley ICON Link must be activated to utilize this feature.
“This new innovation furthers the Valley tradition of helping growers become more
advanced and efficient,” said Andy Carritt, Vice President, Product Development. “This
industry first will be with updates functioning similarly to the smartphone updates most
people are familiar with – but for their smart panels.
Valley ICON panels are the most advanced in the industry, offering complete control
and the most intuitive, dynamic touchscreens available. Over-the-air updates represent
another leap forward in a total remote management platform to help growers gain
control of their irrigation.
In conjunction with Valley 365TM, their single sign-on solution coming in early 2020,
Valley remote management options are the industry’s most comprehensive yet easy-to understand
technology tools. Valley offers complete, connected crop management to
help growers make better decisions, save time, maximize irrigated acres and have
peace of mind.
Valley continues to develop and implement cutting-edge crop management technology
that harnesses the power and efficiency of the trusted equipment in growers’ fields. For
