The Cellular Communication Module is used to connect ICC2 Controllers to Hunter’s Centralus™ Irrigation Management Platform. This 4G LTE communication module allows for wide-area connectivity to Centralus cloud-based control and provides an alternative to Wi-Fi and Ethernet connections to the internet.
IMPORTANT: For full compatibility, the ICC2 controller must have a facepack with a date code of 2019 or newer. If not, you will receive a message in the Centralus software to replace it.
A Hunter Centralus account is required to complete the controller configuration. Using an internet-connected smartphone, tablet, or PC, set up a free Centralus Account.
The Cellular Communication Module includes all necessary hardware for plastic, metal, and pedestal ICC2 Controller installations.
The INNER MODULE is the main component of the Cellular Communication Module Kit. It is powered by the host ICC2 Controller and is installed securely inside the controller enclosure. The magnetic mounting bracket allows for quick installation and removal. The Inner Module connects to an exterior mounted cellular antenna via an SMA connection. It also houses the SIM card required for data activation and provides two screw terminals for a flow sensor input.
The red and black leads from the Flow sensor are connected to the + (red) and - (black) screw terminals on the communication module (Fig. 1). A minimum wire size of 18-gauge wire can be used to connect the leads from the sensor to the module. For information on installing the sensor in the field, click here.
