Welcome to Tonick Watering
A range of irrigation controllers, valve decoders and sensor decoders for moisture, pressure, flow and digital input . Multi-wire irrigation controllers and PLCs that want to offer 2wire can benefit from a versatile range of adaptors. This allows 2wire without massive developments costs or technical risk.Tonick Watering was formed in 1996. Its products are used all over the world.
Complementary to decoder development, Tonick has developed a range of versatile controllers from a simple low cost stand-alone wall mount, through to a full Internet based controller with its own embedded web pages and open SCADA protocol, for city-wide irrigation networks
For companies with their own controllers, but not yet with decoders, Tonick offers a range of components which they may embed to operate proven decoders. This avoids the technical risk and time-to-market in attempting their own designs. These components range from simple as a pre-programmed micro-controller and a reference design, up to ready-made interface cards, DIN rail mounting or Eurocard. These latter can communicate with the controller using a simple ASCII protocol, or Modbus RTU slave.
A Decoder/solenoid in one small package (Decoder In A Solenoid, DIAS) is now offered. This is not much bigger than a conventional solenoid, but includes the lightning protected decoder as well. With a diagnostic multi-coloured LED and the elimination of two decoder-solenoid waterproof joints, the DIAS is a significant improvement in classic decoder technology.
Decoder-based watering systems have many advantages over satellite systems. Thanks to the quality of design and build embodied in Tonick decoders, unreliability and lightning damage are no longer a problem.
