X2 - Connecting Valves

Installation of the X2 should only be done by trained personnel. Please refer to the example and instructions below for connecting the controller to the valve.

  1. Route valve wires between the control valve location and controller.
  2. At valves, attach a common wire to either solenoid wire on all valves. This is most commonly a white-colored wire. Attach a separate control wire to the remaining wire of each valve. All wire connections should be done using waterproof connectors.
  3. Secure the white valve common wire to the C (Common) screw on the terminal strip. Attach each of the individual valve control wires to the appropriate station terminals and tighten their screws.
  4. The transformer wires are already connected to the AC terminals so all that is required is to connect the primary power outlet for the plug.

NOTE: The MV terminal is only to be used if a master valve is on the system. Learn more
