The Toro Co. The Toro Co. is adding five new 0.75-inch rotor models to its best-selling T5 RapidSet Series rotor product line. This includes the Shrub, Shrub Effluent, 12-inch High Pop, 12-inch High Pop Effluent, and Lawn Effluent models. The tool-free arc adjustment of the patent-pending RapidSet feature allows the arc orientation and angle to be quickly set or changed through a straightforward combination of twists of the nozzle turret. The T5 RapidSet rotor’s unique slip clutch makes the no tools arc adjustment possible, while also protecting the turret gears and components from damage. The rotor can be adjusted to cover arcs of 40–360 degrees. Similar to the T5 RapidSet lawn model, which was introduced early last year, the Shrub and High Pop models also feature Toro’s Airfoil Technology nozzles. The nozzles’ geometries are specially-designed for the T5 and create a low pressure zone just beneath the nozzle openings, which delivers a better up-close watering profile and leading overall distribution

Xylem Inc. High-accuracy, simple SDI-12 communication and advanced design are just a few features of the new WaterLOG Nile Series (Nile 502, Nile 504, Nile 517) radar water level sensors, released this week by WaterLOG—a Xylem brand. The Nile series operates based on the time-of-flight method. Radar impulses are emitted by an antenna, reflected off the product (water surface), and received again by the radar system. This provides the most precise measurement data in water level applications requiring non-contact transmission. This series of WaterLOG instruments is designed to be mounted on the side of bridges or other enclosures above surface water. The rugged, innovative design was built for extreme environmental conditions—making this series ideal for tough to reach

Aclara STAR ZoneScan is the industry’s leading, remotely correlated acoustic leak-detection system that cost-effectively identifies small leaks before they become big problems. The system combines acoustic data loggers with Aclara’s STAR Network technology to provide fully integrated leak detection through fixed-network advanced metering infrastructure. Time-synchronized sound recordings are initiated through the STAR ZoneScan transmission unit, which sends the resulting data back to the utility through fixed-network infrastructure. Web-based application software correlates the data between loggers and provides visual identification of high probability leak
