Can I use Hunter’s battery-operated controllers with other manufacturer’s valves?

Topics: 
FAQs, Installation Procedures

We would prefer that you use a Hunter valve with a Hunter DC latching solenoid, but we realize that sometimes you may be retrofitting existing systems that have another manufacturer’s valves. We have done testing on the following solenoids and have found these to operate with the Hunter SVC, WVC, NODE and XC Hybrid battery powered controllers. (some of these DC latching solenoids required a reduced system pressure, below 150 PSI (10.34 bars/1034.25 kPa), to ensure proper operation):

Solenoid Valve
Baccara G75-0-10002 Baccara G75-S-50162 ¾” valve
Bermad S392-2 Baccara G75-S-60162 1” valve (max. 75psi)(5.17 bars/517.12 kPa)
Nelson® 8090 Bermad 200 series valve (max. 50psi)(3.45 bars/344.75 kPa)
Rain Bird® TBOSPSO Nelson 7917 series valve   (max. 50psi)
Irritrol E2003 Rain Bird DV100 and PEB100 valves
  Irritrol 100 series valve (max. 80psi)(5.52 bars/551.6 kPa)
