Hunter Industries Announces the New Pilot™ Golf Central Control System

SAN MARCOS, Calif.–– February 5, 2013

Pilot is a new central control system from Hunter Industries designed exclusively for golf course irrigation control.  The new system is available as an above-ground system using conventional field controllers or a below-ground system using decoders. The new equipment can be used stand-alone, or networked into a whole system with Pilot central control software.

In addition to central control software, Pilot products include field controllers, decoder hubs, and decoders. The field controller manages up to 80 stations, and the decoder hub can control up to 999 stations.

According to Product Manager Randall Mills, “The Pilot system was designed to enhance serviceability and reliability, two major issues for any golf course manager. From sophisticated troubleshooting tools built into every component to a clean design with no exposed electronics or loose wires, no detail was overlooked in the creation of the system. The color-coded, modular layout includes unique technology to eliminate the frustration.”

The Pilot system also aims to please from a service standpoint. The only service tool required is a #2 Phillips screwdriver, which Hunter highlights by including one with every controller.

The Pilot Central Control System is available now, and can be used in retrofit, upgrade and new construction situations. To learn more about Hunter's complete line of golf irrigation products visit
