RainMAN Control System in action!
January 22, 2018
This weekend saw the final of three Women’s Big Bash League (WBBL) cricket matches hosted at the City of Swan’s Lilac Hill Park, a venue that is famous for its international standard cricket facilities, The Lilac Hill site comprises of three ovals and a large open park and picnic area nestled on the bank of the beautiful Swan River.
The site is connected to the City of Swan’s RainMAN Central Control System and uses the latest TWiN decoder technology to manage the total greenspace irrigation requirements, including the park area, playing surfaces and turf wickets. Water and energy usage for the site is also monitored and reported using the RainMAN system, along with microclimate weather and soil moisture.
City of Swan site operators can also use the RainCLOUD app to better manage the system remotely.
For those of you interested in the cricket…, the Perth Scorchers took on the Hobart Hurricanes and cricket fans were out in force for the first two matches at Lilac Hill, where crowds at the first two games reached 5,500 and 4,700 respectively to smash national WBBL attendance records out of the park. A big-hitting finish from Nicole Bolton has guided Perth Scorchers to a six-wicket win over Hobart Hurricanes.
