The Battery-Powered Sprinkler Controller with 1 valve solenoid and valve adapters is ideal for scenarios where you have an existing sprinkler valve but do not have sprinkler wires running to it. One common use is for conversion of a manual sprinkler or drip valve to an automatic valve. Another common use is when you have a break in wires which prevents power from getting to the valve. It can control up to four valve solenoids in the same valve box. One 13V latching solenoid and solenoid adapters for all major valve brands are included. You can add up to three additional solenoids (sold separately).
The timer is engineered for installation in an outdoor environment, including in a valve box. The control dial is removable from the body for easy programming and battery changes. Under normal usage, 2 AA alkaline batteries will power the controller for a full season. The A and B program slots allow you to set up to two unique watering schedules tailored to different types of zones in the yard. Each program has space for four different start times, which allows you to create cycle and soak windows that encourage water infiltration into the soil. The Battery-Powered Sprinkler Timer will automatically “stack” overlapping runtimes from different programs so that only one solenoid is running at any given time. The manual run feature allows you to run one zone, select zones, or all zones for a specified length of time, which is very convenient for zone testing or supplemental watering. The rain delay feature allows you to skip watering zones for a configurable time when Mother Nature is taking care of the watering.
One 13V latching solenoid and solenoid adapters for all major valve brands are included. Installation is as simple as replacing the existing 24 VAC valve solenoid with the 13V latching solenoid, putting batteries in the timer, setting the schedules and placing the mounting clip and timer on the latching solenoid. For outdoor irrigation use with cold water only.
