This reliable indexing valve by K-Rain Corp. just got better...









Unexpected, undetected indexing valve malfunctions can cause costly problems for system designers, irrigation system operators and owners. Zone overloading and water runoff, or dry, dead grass can all be caused by valve problems. This wastes precious water resources and can result in costly fines for violation of municipal water restrictions.

Preventing such unfortunate situations has traditionally required frequent
site visits and inspections, however this increases Operation & Maintenance costs.

Introducing the first electronic monitor and early-warning alert system for 6000 series indexing valves by K-RAIN®.

The IVM6000-LP Intelligent Valve Monitor ensures reliable designs and peace of mind, by confirming even distribution to all zones, as well as providing early detection and immediate alert of valve malfunctions.

Simply replace the valve’s original rubber disk and stem assembly (RDSA) with the sensor enabled one supplied with the IVM6000.

You can see how easy it is to replace the RDSA in this 1 minute instructional video.





Slide the monitor down over the valve as shown below, or refer to our 1 minute video.

Supply low voltage line power (any from 6V to 30 V AC or DC may be used). We suggest using a standard 24 V AC transformer because they are inexpensive and commonly available.

Connect the wire of the IVM6000-LP to any third party control panel for real time alert capability.

Connect the dry contact alarm output to any standard third party pump control panel, or our IVM Alarm Box, and the IVM6000-LP is ready to provide immediate notification of any valve malfunctions.

The internal microprocessor logs data, analyzing valve activity for over ten different error conditions.

The mechanical indexing valve + Intelligent Valve Monitor combination offers
superior reliability and control system simplicity compared to  using solenoid valves for zoning irrigation systems. It is also much less costly than using larger pumps, or multiple pumps which increases control panel complexity.
