With an effcient and time-saving design and patented, fuid- fow technology, Flo-Pro utilizes a course's irrigation system to apply liquid or water soluble wetting agents, fertilizers and soil amendments. Flo-Pro can also apply acid to help lower pH levels. Flo-Pro connects to the irrigation main line and monitors precise delivery of turf care products. The unit has no moving parts and doesn't require electricity. Feed rates are adjustable for various mixing ratios, and pre-mixing or pre-blending aren't required. The user sets the dial to the desired injection rate from 1 to 20 gallons per hour and pours the wetting agent or other soluble product into the tank. The irrigation system evenly applies the solution and completes the job. Contact Underhill International, 866-863-3744 (www.underhill.us).

The line voltage (up to 600 VAC) connects directly to the transducer; no potential transformer is needed unless the line voltage exceeds 600 volts. APN-R measures three phases of current and voltage and computes 14 values necessary to track the power usage. The monitor's digital format provides information on the system voltage, current and power factor in addition to wattage. The monitor fts seamlessly into an industrial communications network, both hard-wired and wireless, depending on the specifcs of the application.
