In order to allow the Central Control to run using ET, your best option is to ensure in-field and Central Control setup is accurate. Inputting the data from the field including Spacing (shape type and distance), Rotor (Type and nozzle set up) flow rate and arc details allows the CCS to have an accurate precipitation rate for the station. When in ET mode the CCS will establish its own run times based on these precip rates and the ET % to be applied, so it’s vital the information is kept up to date when changes occur in the field.
