Battery-operated control allows irrigation to occur virtually anywhere, including isolated sites and power-restricted areas. The new Node controller is quickly becoming the industry’s go-to battery-operated solution. The compact Node mounts to valve solenoids quickly and easily. Its solid construction ensures it can handle the harsh environment of a valve box. It‘s also waterproof in up to 12 feet of water, so there’s no need to worry about water ever affecting performance. The Node can be powered by one or two 9V batteries or a Solar Panel kit. The Solar Panel kit allows the controller to be powered entirely by solar energy, which is highly efficient and allows for maintenance free operation. Along with exceptional reliability, the Node features an easy-to-program LCD screen, master valve control, and uses standard Hunter controller programming. The array of programming options and rugged reliability make the Node the perfect battery-operated control solution.
