Node - Attaching Solenoids
The NODE-100 is provided with or without a solenoid attached to the controller. The NODE-200, NODE-400, and NODE-600 multi-station controllers will operate up to 2, 4, or 6 solenoids, respectively. The multi station models are not sold with DC latching solenoids, but can be purchased separately. Hunter DC solenoids (P/N 458200) can easily be installed on all Hunter Plastic Valves.
NOTE: Must use DC Latching Solenoids operating between 9-11VDC. 24VAC Solenoids will not operate with the NODE.
To Wire DC Solenoids to the NODE
1. Attach the black leads from each solenoid to the single common wire (black lead) coming from the NODE. Secure all wire connections with waterproof connectors.
2. Attach one red wire from each solenoid to the corresponding station wire (red lead) from the NODE. The station numbers are identified on the face of the NODE. Secure all wire connections with waterproof connectors.
NOTE: The maximum wire distance between the solenoid and NODE is 100 ft/30 m (18 gauge minimum wire size).
