1.0 Getting Acquainted With Your ProLine® Controller

1.1 Getting Acquainted With Your Control Panel

The ProLine® Controller LCD Display provides the following information when the controller is set to RUN, SYSTEM OFF, or when there is no active watering operation underway (display with program in IDLE mode):

Time of Day

Battery Strength: ProLine™ Controllers use a Real Time Clock/Calendar instead of a backup battery to maintain correct time during a power outage. For the PL1600 and PL4800, the display will show a blank battery icon in the display until/unless a battery is installed in the controller. Battery usage is only necessary for programming when the control panel is removed.

Next Watering Day or Days: The display will show the watering days in the current week for Program A. To view watering days for Program B, C or D just press the PGM button.

Fault Indicator: Appears ONLY when a fault is detected. Turn dial to Advanced Menu and press NEXT button to view faults. Once you turn the dial to Advanced Menu, the fault indicator will stop flashing but will continue to appear on the screen until the fault is removed or user clears fault in Advanced Menu. If fault is cleared in Advanced Menu, it will appear again the next time the program runs if the problem is not corrected.

No AC: Appears when there is no AC supply to the controller.

PGM Button: The ProLine™ controller has 4 watering programs (A, B, C, and D). This is like having 4 controllers in one. You can assign zones to any program you like or more than one program except that zones assigned to Program D cannot be given a run time in A, B, or C. Program D will operate concurrently with A, B, or C. Display will alternately show both programs while the concurrent schedule is running. Program D is normally used for micro irrigation with low flow and long run times. Sprinkler zones should be assigned to A, B, or C.
Programs A, B, and C will stack operations. This means that if your run time for Program A overlaps B or C, then B will not start until A is completed and so on. If you want exact start times for all programs, make sure your total run time for each program can complete before the next program run is scheduled to start.

START MANUAL PROGRAM Button: Press to initiate a watering operation when the programming dial is set to the RUN position. The ProLine™ controller will run Program A. Or, you can push the PGM button before you push the START MANUAL PROGRAM button to select the program you want to run. You can use the NEXT button to advance to other zones in a program that you have started. Run Manual Program will override any omits or delays.

Special Feature: You can also use the START MANUAL PROGRAM button to start a continuous run operation. If you press and hold the START MANUAL PROGRAM button for 15 seconds, the selected program will operate in a continuous loop. In other words, it will keep running the program continuously until the dial is switched to SYSTEM OFF.

Display With Program Running: When a program is running, the screen will display: program that is operating; zone number that is operating; and run time remaining. An ORANGE LED indicates program is in PAUSE mode waiting for a programmed delay in the controller to expire (run/soak, master valve delay, zone to zone delay, omit time). The display will show the reason for the pause.

Note: No watering will take place when the RAIN/FREEZE SENSING LED is RED. This indicates a Rain, Freeze or other type sensor has tripped, and programs are prevented from running. An ORANGE MODE LED means watering is paused temporarily due to: run/soak, master valve delay, zone to zone delay, or omit time. A program in operation will also pause if you turn the dial to any position other than RUN or SYSTEM OFF. The program in operation will resume when you return the dial to RUN or if there is no programming activity for 60 minutes.

Note: No watering will take place when the SENSOR LED is RED. This indicates a Rain, Freeze or other type sensor has tripped, and programs are prevented from running. An ORANGE LANGUAGE LED means watering is paused temporarily due to: run/soak, master valve delay, zone to zone delay, or omit time. A program in operation will also pause if you turn the dial to any position other than RUN or SYSTEM OFF. The program in operation will resume when you return the dial to RUN or if there is no programming activity for 30 minutes.

Display With Dial In SYSTEM OFF Position: When the ProLine™ controller dial is in the SYSTEM OFF position, the processor and clock continue to operate and all program values are retained in the non-volatile memory. In the SYSTEM OFF position no automatic watering will occur. The Language Selection LED will display red when controller is turned to SYSTEM OFF.

If you move the dial to any position other than RUN or SYSTEM OFF, and there is no control panel activity for 30 minutes; the controller will return to the RUN mode, and the display screen will show the idle default screen or will return to a program in progress that was interrupted.

Language Button: Press Language button to select English or Spanish for programming the controller. During normal operation the Language LED will display GREEN. It will change to ORANGE during a pause in operation and will display RED when ProLine™ controller dial is turned to SYSTEM OFF.

Rain/Freeze Sensing Button: Used to activate or bypass optional sensors for rain, freeze, or wind. If these sensors are connected to your ProLine™ controller, they will override watering operations if the ACTIVE LED is selected. If your sensor/s have paused your system operation, the ACTIVE LED will be RED until the sensors allow watering to resume. The sensor LED will display GREEN again when the sensor/s are no longer pausing your system operation.

If you wish to deactivate the sensors, use the RAIN/FREEZE SENSING button to light the green OFF LED. Example: You wish to water after fertilizing and your rain sensor is still pausing the watering program. As long as the OFF LED is on, the sensors will not pause your system operation.

Note: If you have zones you want to omit from sensor shutdown, see Sensor Operation later in this manual.

1.2 Programming

Using the Programming Buttons

A FLASHING DISPLAY indicates that user choices are available. The UP and DOWN buttons are used to scroll through numeric values or to make a choice of menu options.

NEXT and BACK Buttons: When watering zones are being programmed, the left side of the display will indicate the zone number. The NEXT and BACK buttons are used to scroll through the zones. If the flashing display indicates a menu selection rather than a numeric value, the NEXT button will open the menu for further programming. The BACK button will exit the menu and cause the chosen value to be saved in memory.

RAPID ADVANCE: While programming, holding down the UP or DOWN arrow button will cause the flashing display value to rapidly advance. Rapid advance can also be used with the NEXT and BACK buttons to rapidly advance through zones.

MENUS WITHIN MENUS: In cases where there are menus within menus, each press of the BACK button will return to the next higher menu until the top level menu of the dial position is reached.

A VALUE CHANGE will be entered in memory any time you (1) move to a different menu or (2) move the programming dial to a different position.

2.0 Programming

Your SmartLine® controller has two operating modes: BASIC mode or Weathermatic’s patented SMART mode. The BASIC mode uses user assigned zone run times. The SMART mode overrides user assigned zone run times and calculates zone run times based on the location of the site, inputs by zone, and weather readings from the SLW Weather Sensor. Note: SMART requires the optional SLW Weather Sensor. 

Smart watering calculates ET (evapotranspiration), the landscape’s daily water loss, and schedules the correct amount of irrigation to replace the loss. When combined with a Weathermatic SLW Weather Sensor, Smart mode gives you the power to reduce water waste. Many water districts are offering rebates for Smart mode users. Check with your local district.

Both the BASIC mode and SMART mode operate based on the user’s programmed start times, watering days, omit times/days, and several Advanced Menu features (rain delay, zone to zone delay, and master valve settings).

Important Note: Zone run times must be entered for every zone in use for the controller to recognize the zone in either BASIC or SMART modes.

2.1 Current Time/Date

Use UP and DOWN arrow buttons to change the flashing value for the hour. Scrolling past 12 will automatically change AM/PM. Remember holding down the UP or DOWN arrow button will rapidly advance through the flashing menu. (Note: For international users, if controller is powered by 230VAC, 50 Hz AC, the display will read in international hours rather than AM/PM.)

Use NEXT button to flash minutes. Use UP and DOWN arrow buttons to set minutes. Push NEXT to access calendar setting. Use UP and DOWN arrow buttons to set month/day/year. (Note: For international users, the display will read day/month/year.) Your ProLine™ controller has a 100-year calendar, so when you have entered the correct date, the ProLine™ controller will automatically display the correct day of the week. Your ProLine™ controller will automatically adjust for leap years and USA daylight savings time. See DS TIME, in Advanced Menu to to turn the feature on/off and change the DST schedule.

2.2 Program Start Times

Set Start Time for each program to be used (A, B, C and D). If more than three program start times are desired, refer to Set Start Time for each program to be used (A, B, C and D). If more than one program start time is desired, refer to NUM STRT, in Advanced Menu. The program will start at the time you designate and will water all zones with set Zone Run Times for that program.

For most watering programs set only Start Time #1. The #1 Time will water all zones with Zone Run Times set in that program in consecutive order. Extra start times will re-run all zones. Extra start times may be used for new planting grow-in or other special local conditions. Unused start times must be set in the OFF position. To set a start time at OFF, press on either arrow button until you reach the OFF position located at midnight.

When setting program start times, check the program icon in the display to see whether you are working in A, B, C or D. Use PGM button to move between programs. Use NEXT and BACK buttons to move between start times. Use up and down arrow buttons to set each start time desired. Start times are selectable in 10-minute increments.

Note: Be sure you select the AM/PM time as desired by scrolling past 12. (For international users, the display will show international hours instead of AM/PM.)
If a run time overlaps the next program start time, the ProLine™ controller will stack the start times within each program and between programs, beginning those operations at the time the previous operation is completed, beginning with start time 1 in Program A. If a concurrent program in D is running at the same time as a program in A, B or C, the display will alternately show the icon for both programs in the display.

2.3 Zone Run Times

Your ProLine™ controller will display remaining hours, minutes and seconds when a zone is watering. However, in this position you are only required to set minutes (or hours and minutes) for each zone as desired for operation time. Seconds are not selectable.

Use NEXT and BACK buttons to select zone for run time setting. All zones are selectable from 1 minute to 9 hours and 55 minutes. Run times of OFF to 59 minutes are selectable in one minute increments. Run times of 1 hour to 9 hours 55 minutes are selectable in 5-minute increments. Use UP or DOWN arrow buttons to set flashing time values for each zone. If a zone is not to be used, set it to OFF.

Push PGM button to assign zone time in one or more programs. Note: Program D is for concurrent operation for micro irrigation zones. Zones assigned to Program D cannot be assigned to Program A, B, or C. Display will say USED if attempt is made to enter time in A, B, or C for a zone already assigned run time in D.

Caution: If an unused zone is turned on and activates a pump start relay, the pump may overheat or cause a pipe to burst. To prevent operating a pump with no flow (dead heading), make sure all unused zones are set to OFF.

Note: If display shows “0 ZONES,” this indicates no SLM4 modules are currently installed or have ever been installed under AC power with the control panel firmly closed.

Note: Run/Soak feature can reduce the need to set multiple start times for the purpose of preventing runoff. Using the combination of multiple start times and Run/Soak cycles can lead to extended watering windows since Run/Soak cycles are applied to each start time. See Run/Soak.

2.4 Days to Water

In this dial position you can select a DAYS, INTERVAL, or ODD/EVEN schedule. Use UP and DOWN arrow buttons to select which type of schedule you want in your ProLine™ controller. Remember to check the Program (PGM) selection showing in the display. You can select a different watering schedule for each program if you wish.

If you select DAYS, then use the NEXT button to step through each day of the week and the UP and DOWN arrow buttons to select ON or OFF status for each day. Days selected to water will be displayed at the top of the display.

If you select an INTERVAL schedule, push NEXT button. The flashing number indicates the day interval for watering. ProLine™ controller will allow an interval of 1 (every day) to 30 (water once every 30 days). After you have selected the interval you want, push NEXT to set the day you want the interval schedule to start on. Use UP and DOWN arrow buttons to select start day at top of display.

If you select ODD/EVEN day scheduling, push NEXT button and then use UP or DOWN arrow buttons to select watering on ODD or EVEN days. If ODD is flashing on the display when you turn the dial to another position, you have selected ODD. The same is true for EVEN. When you return the dial to RUN, you can view the next day that your schedule will run. The ProLine™ Controller will run ODD or EVEN programming at the next available start time, even if it is on the same day that you set up the schedule. If you are using an ODD schedule, the ProLine™ controller will not water on the 31st day of a month and February 29th of a leap year to prevent two consecutive watering days (31st and 1st or 29th and 1st).

2.5 Omit Times/Days/Dates (Optional)

The omit settings are used to set a watering blackout period. For example, if you live in a municipality that restricts outdoor watering between 10:00 am and 6:00 pm, you can blackout that time period. If a watering program in progress is paused for a blackout period, the ORANGE LED will display during the pause. The watering cycle will automatically resume at the end of the blackout period. Use the UP or DOWN arrow buttons to select OMIT:TIME, OMIT:DAYS, and OMIT:DATES. You may choose any or all of these omit options.

If you want a watering blackout for the same period each day, select OMIT:TIME. Then push NEXT. A forward (>) arrow indicates the beginning time for the blackout. Use UP and DOWN arrow buttons to set beginning time. Then push NEXT. A reverse arrow (<) indicates the end time for the blackout. Use UP and DOWN arrow buttons to set ending time. The OMIT:TIME function will pause any active watering program until the blackout period has expired. Scrolling the beginning time (forward arrow) between 12:00 am and 11:50 pm causes NONE SET to appear and clears the omit time.

If you want to omit a specific day or days each week from watering schedules, select OMIT:DAYS with the UP and DOWN arrow buttons. Then push NEXT. Display will show a day of the week with Omit or Allow flashing. Use UP and DOWN arrow buttons to select Omit or Allow. Use NEXT or BACK to scroll between days of the week. Omitted days will be visible at the top of the display. Any running user program will be stopped at midnight in order to honor omit days or dates. Programs scheduled to start on an omit day will be skipped.

If you want to omit specific dates during the year, select OMIT: DATES. Then push NEXT. Enter the month and date. Push NEXT to enter up to 15 dates. Scrolling the month value between 12 and 1 causes mm/dd to appear and clears the omitted date. Any running user program will be stopped at midnight in order to honor omit days or dates.

2.7 Monthly % Adjust (Optional)

The Monthly % Adjust feature allows the user to modify zone run times by program for each month to easily adjust watering for seasonal climate changes. The time programmed for each zone in ZONE RUN TIMES is always the value for the 100% setting in Seasonal % Adjust. When you use the Monthly % Adjust, you are increasing or decreasing the 100% time value.

% settings in this mode are 0 to 300% in 5% increments. Use UP and DOWN arrow buttons to select % desired. Press PGM to choose program.

PROGRAMMING IS COMPLETE. RETURN THE DIAL TO THE RUN POSITION.

Note: When the SmartLine® controller is in SMART mode this feature is voided. SMART mode will change zone watering times daily.

3.0 Manual Start Functions

The ProLine™ controller has three dial positions for manual system starts:

3.1 Manual Zone

Manual Zone allows user to water a single zone for specified period of time. Use NEXT and BACK buttons to select zone. Use UP and DOWN arrows to select run time for the zone. A zone can be operated with the Manual Zone function regardless of whether the zone has an assigned run time. You must return dial to RUN for Manual Zone operation to begin. All manual watering operations will override watering day settings, omit settings, and rain/freeze events.

3.2 Manual Test

The Manual Test can be used to set a test run time for all zones which have an assigned zone run time in any program. Any zone without an assigned zone run time will NOT run in the Manual Test. UseUP and DOWN arrow buttons to set Manual Test run time. The Manual Test can be set to run a minimum of 10 seconds or a maximum of 10 minutes. You must return dial to RUN for Manual Test operation to begin.

Manual Test will detect open circuits (less than 30 mA draw) on any used zone or a short on any output (master valve or zone). If the display indicates FAULT while running a Manual Test, refer to Advanced Menu to identify the FAULT.

3.3 Manual Program

Manual Program allows you to start any program set up in the controller; A, B, C or D. Zones will run for the time set at Zone Run Times for the selected program.

  • Turn dial to Manual Program. OFF will appear in the screen.
  • Use UP and DOWN arrows to select the program you want to run (PROG A, B, C or D)
  • Return dial to RUN. Program will commence watering. At the end of the manual watering cycle, the controller will return to automatic RUN mode.

4.0 System Diagnostics and Eco Features

Your ProLine™ controller has both System Diagnostic and Eco Friendly dial positions:

4.1 Multimeter

Outputs

Turn dial to Multimeter position. Outputs will appear on the screen. Push Next button to check milli-amp (mA) outputs for MV (master valve) and each numbered zone. Typical range is 150 to 350 mA per valve with a valve connected. An Open or Short message indicates a problem with a zone. Note: If you have more than one valve on a zone, the ProLine™ controller will measure total current for the combined valves.

Battery

To check the battery voltage level (applies to PL1600 & PL4800 only), turn dial to Multimeter. Outputs will appear on the screen. Push the Adjust Value up arrow button one time. Battery will appear on the screen. Push the Next button once to read battery voltage status. A minimum of 7.5V is required to operate the screen. ProLine™ controllers use a Real Time Calendar Clock instead of a backup battery to maintain correct time during a power outage. A battery is only necessary for viewing the screen and programming when the panel is removed from the housing.

24V Power

To check transformer voltage, turn dial to Multimeter. Outputs will appear in the screen. Press Adjust Value up arrow button until you get 24V Power. Push Next button once to read output voltage for the transformer. Normal reading is 24 to 30 volts AC.

4.2 Valve Locator (patented)

This feature will create a “chatter” for a selected valve as a convenient method of locating buried valves. Use Next and Back buttons to scroll to the valve you want to “chatter”. Main water valve for system should be turned off for “chatter” operation. If the system has a master valve, the valve locator function will prevent the master valve from opening during this test.

4.3 Sensor Operation

Sensor

The Sensor Operation function is used to omit selected zones from sensor shutdown during rain or freeze conditions. Factory default is all zones included for sensor shutdown. If you have zones like potted plants under cover, you may wish to omit those zones from sensor shutdown. Turn dial to Sensor Operation. Push NEXT button to view SENSOR and NEXT again to view first zone. Use up or down Adjust Value buttons to select sensor ON or OFF for the zone. OFF means the zone WILL WATER during sensor shutdown.

RFS

ProLine™ controllers can utilize the RFS Sensor for Rain and Freeze Shutdown. This means that you can take advantage of differentiating between Rain and Freeze events, unlike standard sensors on the market. Another powerful feature is the ability to extend a Rain shutdown event beyond the short time the Rain sensor is actually wet, saving even more water.

Note: If you are not utilizing a master valve, you should turn off the system water pressure at the manual cut-off valve or water meter for the locator feature to work. Pressure must be off while attempting to “chatter” a valve. The ProLine™ controller will automatically turn off MV output when the Locator test is initiated.

Press the NEXT button at SLW to display DELAY. Press NEXT again to display the number of hours the controller will suspend irrigation after the Rain sensor has dried out. The factory default is 48 hours.

RAIN and FREEZE selections work the same as SENSOR described above, however allow you to differentiate between rain and freeze events. For example, you may want your potted plants to irrigate during rain but not during a freeze.

5.4 Run and Soak Cycles

The purpose of Run and Soak is to break up long run times that often cause wasteful runoff. The Run/Soak is programmable for each program.
Turn dial to Run and Soak Cycles. Use PGM button to select the program you want. Use up and down Adjust Value buttons to scroll between OFF and minutes of Run time. Selectable times are OFF to 30 minutes. Controller default is OFF.

Push Next button to select SOAK time. Use up and down Adjust Value buttons to scroll to selected soak time. Selectable times are 1 minute to 2 hours.

5.0 Advanced Menu

Advanced Menu provide additional information and allow more technical inputs commonly used by professional installers. Advanced Menu contains menus within menus. To advance to a sub-menu, press the NEXT button. Each press of the BACK button will return you to a higher level until the top level of the Advanced Menu dial position is reached.
Refer to the chart to the right for the location of features within the menus.

Refer to the chart below for the location of features within the menus.


5.1 FAULTS

This feature is used to identify problems that may require attention or repair to insure proper operation of the system. Use NEXT button to view the type of fault. If more than one fault exists, you can use the UP and DOWN buttons to search for additional faults. Use the NEXT button to view the type of fault. If more than one fault exists, you can use the UP and DOWN buttons to search for additional faults. Use the NEXT button on the fault description currently displayed and the screen will read CLEAR, press the NEXT button to CLEAR the fault and the fault icon on the display will disappear. However, if the cause of the fault is not corrected, the controller will continue to skip watering a zone with a fault and will resume the flashing FAULT icon on the display each time that zone is operated. If additional faults are present repeat the procedure to remove them from the panel. Once the faults have been cleared the screen will read, no faults present. However, if the cause of the fault is not corrected, the controller will continue to skip watering a zone with a fault and will resume the flashing FAULT icon on the display each time that zone is operated.

Faults

5.2 RAIN DLY

The rain delay feature allows user to globally suspend watering operations for all programs for a selected number of days.

Use UP and DOWN arrow buttons to select 1 to 14 days for watering suspension. The watering blackout will automatically be cleared from the ProLine™ controller after the assigned days have expired and watering will resume at the next available start time.

5.3 DS TIME

Your ProLine™ controller can automatically adjust the time for daylight saving time (DST). The factory default setting is OFF and has been preset for the current USA schedule. To turn DST adjust ON, press the next button at DS TIME, the NEXT button at ON/OFF then select ON.

The DS Time feature can be customized to match any international DST schedule. Press the NEXT button at DS TIME in Advanced Menu. Select DS SETUP and press the NEXT button again. You will be prompted to enter the START schedule (time of day is moved ahead 1 hour per START schedule), and the STOP schedule (time of day is moved back 1 hour per STOP schedule). DST start and stop are formatted with the the Week (first, second, third, last), the Day (Sun-Sat) and the Month (Jan-Dec). All DS Time adjustments are made at 2 am. To return the DS Time schedule back to the USA factory default, use the US DEFLT option.

5.4 NUM START

This ProLine™ feature allows you to select the number of Watering Program Start Times that you want to appear at Program Start Times on the dial. The default number of start times shown is 1. To select 1 to 8 start times, go to Advanced Menu, NUM STRT. Press Next to view the default of 1 start time. Scroll the Adjust Value buttons to select 1 to 8 start times to be visible on the dial. Return the dial to Run.

5.5 ZN:ZN DLY

This function allows user to set delay times between zone starts for use in systems with slow closing valves or pump systems that are operating near maximum flow or have slow well recovery. Use UP and DOWN arrow buttons to change value. Adjustable in one-minute increments from 0 (the ProLine™ controller default setting) to 30 minutes; adjustable in 10 minute increments from 30 minutes to 3 hours.

5.6 MV:ZN DLY

(Master Valve Advance Open and Delayed Close):

This function allows the user to set a delay time between the opening of the master valve and the opening of the first zone valve as well as a delay between the closing of the last zone valve and the closing of the master valve.

Use the NEXT button to enter menu. Select setting for the ON Delay or OFF Delay by pressing NEXT. Use UP and DOWN arrow buttons to select delay time. Use arrow buttons to set ON Delay time from 0 seconds to 1 minute in 1 second increments. OFF Delay can be set from 0 seconds to 3 minutes in 1 second increments.

5.7 MV/ZONE

This feature is used to indicate which zones will use the master valve/pump start output. Use NEXT button to set each zone ON or SYSTEM OFF (ProLine™ controller default is master valve ON for all zones). Use UP and DOWN arrow buttons to select ON or OFF. Use NEXT button to select zone.

Caution: If an unused zone is turned on and activates a pump start relay, the pump may overheat or cause a pipe to burst. To prevent operating a pump with no flow (dead heading), make sure all unused zones are set to OFF.

5.8 CLR PGM

This feature allows the user to clear all programmed values specific to a selected program. All zone run times and daily start times will be set to OFF; watering days will default to Days of the Week (all on); Season % will equal 100% for all months and Run/Soak will be OFF. Omit times/days are not reset when clearing a program.

From the CLR PGM menu, press NEXT and the display will show KEEP. Use PGM button to select program to be cleared. Then, press either the UP or DOWN arrow button to display CLEAR.
