All Product Videos

Features

This entry-level residential controller offers simple operation with “smart” Solar Sync™ compatibility. With easy-to-configure control for up to 8 stations, including 3 programs and 4 start times each, the X-Core is the perfect solution for residential applications. Plug in the smart Solar Sync ET Sensor and the X-Core is converted into a “smart controller,” to regulate irrigation runtimes based on locally measured weather. The X-Core is also compatible with Hunter remotes for quick, wireless activation of irrigation. Installation, operation and maintenance are designed to be simple while still delivering optimal efficiency or reliability.

Key Benefits

Number of stations: 2, 4, 6, or 8 (fixed models)
Solar Sync™ accessory saves water based on local weather conditions
Built-in key lock on outdoor models protects against vandalism
3 flexible programs with 4 start times each and up to 4-hour run times
QuickCheck™ Technology provides simple diagnostics of faulty field wiring
Hide Programs setting shows 1 program and 1 start time for simplification
Short-circuit protection detects wiring faults and skips the station without system damage
Easy Retrieve™ Memory backs up the full irrigation schedule
Delay Between Stations for slow-closing valves or pump recharge
Cycle and Soak prevents water waste and runoff in areas with elevation changes or tight soils
Seasonal adjustment for quicker schedule adjustments without changing run times

Advanced Features

By adding a Solar Sync™ to your Hunter controller, it transforms into a smart controller using local weather conditions to tailor watering schedules to actual conditions on the site. A Hunter controller with Solar Sync has been independently proven to have a detailed list of water saving features and has been approved by the EPA as a WaterSense Smart Watering Controller.

EPA WaterSense logo
A manual back-up utility that stores complete controller scheduling and setup information in back-up memory.
The Programmable Rain Delay feature enables a user-specified number of days to keep the controller in the OFF mode, following a local rain storm. This will prevent watering during inclement weather, and reverts to automatic scheduled irrigation once the delay period elapses.

The QuickCheck feature makes field wiring issues easy to assess with the push of a button. QuickCheck displays an ERR message when a field wiring short is detected on a particular station number.

This feature offers protection against unreliable power, retaining current time, date, and program data.

Automatic short circuit protection is a feature found in all Hunter AC powered controllers. This feature automatically detects electrical faults, which are typically caused by wiring issues. Only affected stations are skipped, allowing all other stations to water normally as programmed.

This feature allows for quick adjustment to irrigation run times based on seasonal weather conditions.

Global: The Global option provides a Seasonal Adjustment percentage to all station Run Times on all of the controller's Programs.

Daily: With the addition of a Solar Sync ET Sensor, the controller has the ability to automatically implement daily adjustments based on measured local weather.

Users can program a delay between stations as the controller advances from one station to the next. This delay can range from a few seconds (to permit slow-closing valves additional time to close) to a much longer period of time (to allow pressure tanks time to recharge), based on user requirements.
The ability to specify which program will be shut down in response to a specific sensor alarm. This allows programs unaffected by the sensor to continue automatic operations.
