including 200 mm.
This International Standard is applicable only to the above-ground components of irrigation control heads for
sprinkler irrigation and micro-irrigation (mini-sprinklers, drip irrigation, etc.). It is applicable to the basic irrigation
control head, on which other irrigation control and command components (electrical, electronic and hydraulic) may

This International Standard is not applicable to systems and/or components that may be required to prevent the
water from freezing in the irrigation control head, such as dry-barrel hydrants or other types of hydrants.
This International Standard does not specify construction or operating requirements for the individual components
that make up the irrigation control head. These requirements are specified in the relevant standards for each
Systems whose irrigation control heads contain components for the injection of agricultural chemicals should be
protected by backflow prevention system interlocks, injection line check valves and other safety devices in
accordance with local standards or regulations. This International Standard does not cover such equipment.
