Cattle producers and farmers can look forward to reduced maintenance and manpower costs thanks to the launch of a new groundwater pump controller.

Grundfos has released the LC232 Controller for remote monitoring and access of submersible borehole pumps.

The Bluetooth-enabled controller allows users to monitor, control, and schedule water use from their smartphone with the intuitive Grundfos Go Remote app, available for both iOS and Android operating systems.

Users can manage tasks anytime when in range, reducing the need for manpower and lowering operational costs.

The app also alerts the user via a series of alarms that indicate issues such as pump overheating, dry-run, or high-water levels.

Users can easily access pump diagnostics as well as create and email reports on-site from the app.

This ensures operational issues can be quickly addressed, reducing unnecessary downtime and maintenance costs, and ultimately extending the lifespan of submersible borehole pumps.

Grundfos APAC regional managing director Rick Holland said agriculture is one of the most resource and labour-intensive industries.

"Grundfos believes that intelligent technology and connectivity can help address some of the more pertinent operational and manpower challenges," Mr Holland said.

"With the LC232 Controller, we have created an industry-first that empowers them with greater control and functionality on their groundwater systems, so that they can focus their time and energy on other agricultural processes and help drive agricultural productivity to greater heights."

Designed for applications with one or two pumps, the LC232 Controller is also ideal for water intake applications in private installations or smaller waterworks, as well as water lowering on construction sites.

Other applications include tank emptying or filling applications with float switch or analogue travel transmitters.

Supporting up to five control levels for both analogue level transmitter or float switch operations, the LC232 Controller allows users to avoid over pumping their borehole in water intake or irrigation applications.
