Re: Maximum zone velocities

Thank you for your suggestion, however Velocity design is a pipe-sizing method that uses the velocity limit to find the smallest pipe size that doesn’t exceed the specified limit. That is, the velocity is used to choose the pipe size. Therefore, the pipe size cannot be used to pick the velocity limi...

Re: REMOTE DESKTOP ERROR

We don't have any experience with this. In concept this could work. If you explain the configuration that you are trying to achieve more fully we might be able to assist further.

Re: Error importing elevations from Google Earth

The most likely cause of this error message is that either the API billing isn’t set up correctly or the Maps Elevation API has not been enabled. Have you obtained an API key from Google?

Re: Nozzle Pressure Range for PC outlets

Hi,

Pressure Compensating emitters can use the full pressure range by setting the above and below (+/-) outlet tolerances appropriately. See Help|Help Topics - IRRICAD Database Editor Manual -> Irrigation Components -> Details of Individual Groups -> Outlets.

If Running BricsCAD V18 Upgrade to the latest patch

We have noticed that in some cases BricsCAD V18 may cause a crash in IRRICAD Link, for example, when copying dimensions. The solution is to upgrade to BricsCAD v18.2.20. You can download this file from Bricsys or from our server http://www.irricad.com/Irricad/Download/Temp/BricsCAD-V18.2.20-2-en_US(...

Re: zone pipes

Currently this option is not possible. You can define the minimum length of a lateral, but you can not define a minimum length for zone or mainline pipes. This feature may be available in the future at some stage.

Hi, Google Maps may have inconsistent resolution for different areas, which is out of our control. In general, for the USA it is usually pretty good. Note that in IRRICAD Version 17 you have some control over the resolution of the imported image, though this of course is based on the original resolu...

Re: Irricad Link - Large Negative Z values

Hi Kyle,

In IRRICAD Link the Z value may not be set (-100000.00) or may be set to 0.0 for IRRICAD items. However, if elevations are present and able to be used in the hydraulic design then the "Elevation" is specified in the Object Info dialog as follows:-

Hi Kyle, It sounds like you have changed the text size/DPI Scale of your monitor. When the text size is greater than 100% you need to allow for this in IRRICAD.

Re: "Grayed out" design features

Hi Kelley,

This sounds like the program has lost connection with the dongle or thinks it is busy with another process.
Make sure there are no dialog boxes or message boxes open. If not, save the design and then restart the program.

Re: Tape Block Flows Significant Higher Than SDR

Hi, The usual reasons for the differences are:- - the designed flows are based on the constant and index for the emitter and not the SDR entry. If the emitters are not pressure compensating then a higher pressure will result in a higher block flow. - the SDR entry is incorrect for the emitter spacin...
