STANDARD FEATURE: Starting in 2020, ESAC, or electronic swing arm corner, became available for all swing arm corner models.
Patent-pending tech from Reinke improves irrigation uniformity and yields on pivot corners.

ESAC, Reinke Manufacturing’s electronic swing arm corner technology, has won both an AE50 award from the American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers and the Irrigation Association New Product People’s Choice Award for agriculture irrigation. Reinke introduced ESAC to growers in the U.S. and Canada earlier in 2020.

“We’re very excited to be recognized by these organizations, especially since they represent both engineers and growers,” says Chris Roth, Reinke president. “Our team has worked for some time perfecting ESAC’s ability to improve water uniformity on corners and help producers grow more with less. These awards are a signal that we’ve achieved those goals, by providing the most advanced swing arm corner in the irrigation market.”

The AE50 Awards celebrate product innovations in the area of agriculture, food and biological systems. Fifty products ranked highest in innovation, significant engineering advancement and impact on the markets they serve are recognized each year.

The Irrigation Association’s New Product Awards are determined during the annual Irrigation Show and Education Week. A total of 31 new products and technologies were entered in five categories, evaluated on innovation, design quality, increased water and resource-use efficiency, ease of use and product life expectancy.

ESAC provides growers with highly efficient and uniform water application, increasing yields under Swing Arm Corners. In field tests, ESAC showed major improvements for irregular-shaped fields and corner applications on rectangular and square fields. Based on GPS positioning, ESAC’s electronic 6 or 12 zones control the precision application of water or chemical applications to individual field specifications. ESAC is available on all swing arm models.
