Stadium Water Fountains Powered by Innovative

April 3, 2009

greenscape-panelInnovative’s Adam Ring, somtimes known as Mr. Cool Gadget, puts the finishing QC touches on this control panel that is headed to a local stadium project being built by a local pro football team.

The panel, along with the Yaskawa F7 drives you can barely see to the right of the panel, will control a myriad of water fountains. The Parker CTC screen on the panel door allows easy control of fountain height, wind allowances, timers, lights, shut off/on and many other user friendly touchscreen commands. Lots of WAGO terminals in that box as well.

Innovative’s UL508A panel shop completed all of this work and did all of the programming of the drives and touch screens. We can do it for you, too. Call 877.906.2100 or go to for more information about how our our UL508A panel shop can help you.

Cowboys vs. [insert name here]: Club Level, $675 Per Seat, Parking Extra

August 14, 2008

OK, so everybody knows about JerryWorld, the new stadium Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is building out in Arlington, Texas, set to open for the 2009 NFL season. Monstrous construction project, it’s about 15 miles from Innovative HQ — which means it takes 45 minutes to drive there.

Jerry’s sales minions are full throttle pitching DFW area businesses to get on the band wagon and ante up for season tickets. I got the pitch again today for us to entertain Innovative’s customers, and here’s the deal.

$3,400 per season per seat for club level seating, with PSLs going for anywhere from $1,000 to $3,500 per season EVERY season for 30 years.

After some quick math, I figured this out. If you held a single seat for 30 years and paid the mid-range $2,000 for the PSL, it would cost you $675 per game to watch 240 regular season NFL games. If you had two or more seats like most sociable adults . . . well, you can do the math.

And that doesn’t count parking and playoffs. That’s enough to make a grown man . . . cry all the way to the bank. JerryWorld Lives. Will Innovative ante up? We’ll see.
