Project Description


Solar Controller

FEATURES

  • Converts SmartLine® to a totally “portable” water management system by using proven solar technology
  • SmartLine® is a SWAT tested ET system
  •  Green power source using 100% renewable energy
  • Easy installation for both conventional and 2-Wire systems
  • SmartLine® Solar uses industry standard 24VAC valves, which out perform debris-prone latching solenoids required with battery operated systems
  • System diagnostics include volt meter, amp meter and valve locator
  • 2-Wire SmartWire compatible
  • LCD display indicates battery and solar power condition
  • Dual deep cycle batteries provide up to 7 days of operation with no solar charge
  • State of the art Solar Charge Technology (SCT) prolongs battery life and protects batteries from over charge and assures a full charge
  • Using standard AC power components makes for easy conversion from solar to grid power and allows early stage construction of landscape in new construction projects

WATER WITH PURPOSE

1,000 gallons
per controller

BASIC FEATURES

  • 4 independent programs – each stacks or can operate simultaneously
  • 8 start times per program
  • Indoor/outdoor rated
  • Zone run times settable from 1 min. to 9 hrs. 55 min.
  • Rain/freeze sensing on/off button with tri-color LED indicator
  • Rain delay of 1 – 7 days
  • SLW5/SLW1 Weather Station rain delay programmable from 0 – 99 hours
  • Seasonal % adjust by program, by month
  • Omit time of day window, day(s) of week, and up to 7 calendar dates
  • Programmable zone-to-zone delay 1 min. – 3 hrs.
  • Watering days: custom days of the week, odd/even, or interval days
  • Run/Soak cycles by program
  • Large backlit LCD display
  • Non-volatile memory – with no battery required
  • Internal transformer with pre-installed 6’ line cord (SL1600, SL1620 only)
  • 2 simultaneous watering modes: basic mode and smart mode. Each zone can run in either mode independent of other zones, even in the same program.
  • Basic mode: user controlled conventional operation
  • Smart mode: daily automatic programming adjustments
  • 5 user-selectable languages
  • Simultaneous solenoid operation: 3 solenoids (SL800/SL1600), 5 solenoids (SL4800)

SMART WATERING FEATURES

  • ZIP Code input or latitude input
  • Sprinkler type input
  • Plant type input
  • Soil type input
  • More/less ET tuning
  • Watering run times
  • Review menu displays accumulated ET deficits by zone
  • Display maximum run time and minimum soak time
  • Displays temperature readings (daily high/low) for previous 5 days
  • Accumulates total run times by zone from the last reset date
  • Clear deficits for all zones
  • Extended rain delay programmable from 0 – 99 hours

MANUAL OPERATION

  • Manual test runs each zone with zone run times from 10 sec. – 10 min.
  • Manual zone operation of a single zone (1 min. to 9 hrs. 55 min.)
  • Push button manual start of a program from control panel

ON-SITE DIAGNOSTIC/ TROUBLESHOOTING FEATURES

  • Fault review displays all faults, including open and shorted zones
  • Test function using on-board multi-meter
  • Built-in valve locator
  • Backtrack Stored Program™

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

  • Zone-to-zone delay
  • Master valve timing sequence with zone valve programmable
  • Master valve/pump start operation assignable On/Off by zone
  • Clear program function
  • Clear all function
  • Grow-in program
  • Two independently programmed master valves
  • Normally open or normally closed master valve operation
  • Real time milliamp display
  • Flow sensor data review (requires SmartLink® Aircard)
  • Real time flow display (requires SmartLink® Aircard)
