Pivot Monitors

Do I own my FieldWise pivot monitor?

The simple answer is yes. You can even sell your device to others, but make sure you use the transfer form provided by FieldWise. FieldWise will also send out a copy of a zero’ d out invoice indicating the party that took over the monitor. The new party will receive the subscription renewal with a reference to the previous owner. If you no longer need a device and do not wish to sell it to another, we ask that you return it to FieldWise or your dealer for storage or recycling. We will provide the device back to you when you have use for it.  FieldWise does not lease products.

Our products include proprietary software code, and we are required to license our products in order to legally protect them and our users. Licensing is common in the tech industry and often used interchangeably with selling a product. The license prohibits unusual and harmful use with our products and services, such as interfering with the network or reverse engineering a device. We prefer to be as specific as possible in our terms and refer to the purchase as a “lifetime license” to use FieldWise products and services in accordance with our terms and conditions.

Yes. FieldWise is the only pivot monitor manufacturer that has a pivot monitor for computer panels from all major pivot manufacturers. If you do not have a computer panel, FieldWise monitors work with virtually any pivot in existence.

If I have control features on my pivot monitor, what happens if a communication tower goes down?

FieldWise units can continue to control your pivot according to your last instructions without the need to have communication with any server.

What happens with my FieldWise pivot monitor when cellular carriers changed their technology?

FieldWise pivot monitors have a modular design that allows the communication board to easily be changed. Included with our FieldWise Advantage program is our promise to provide a new communication board at no cost.

Can a FieldWise pivot monitor crash a pivot?

No. FieldWise pivot monitors were designed so that during a malfunction the pivot will continue to operate safely and have never been found to cause a pivot to wreck. Unlike some other monitors in the industry, FieldWise monitors work with your existing safety system and do not replace it. Even on neutral-safety pivots with start, FieldWise does not alter the safety circuit to be a hot-safety.

I have a basic Reinke pivot and want to start it, can FieldWise start it without changing the neutral-safety to a hot-safety?

Yes. FieldWise can start any Reinke pivot without the need to alter the safety circuit.
