Power management company Eaton launched its new Control Xpert Ag mobile app that allows for remote monitoring of irrigation systems and helps minimize cost, unplanned downtime and maintenance.

Eaton’s new app gives users both insight to make critical decisions and direct access to remotely monitor equipment miles or even hours away. Control Xpert Ag can monitor the conditions and performance of equipment using the onboard cellular gateway which ships standard with the PowerXL EGS variable frequency drive.

The Control Xpert Ag app enables efficiency improvements in remote pumping applications through labor savings and water usage. By leveraging real-time data from remote irrigation systems users can minimize or eliminate unplanned downtime and maintenance. A cellular gateway is used to transmit motor data from the variable frequency drive (VFD) to the Control Xpert Ag app.
