Rain shutoff and other sensors must be setup in the Devices menu. We tell the controller what sensors are connected, and in some cases we set the response for each sensor.
Dial to the Devices menu, and select Clik Sensors for basic Hunter Clik sensors.
To set up a sensor, click the box for Enable Clik Sensor Input.
The ACC2 sensor inputs are already configured as Normally Closed, but this can be changed for other types of contactclosure sensor inputs to Normally Open.
Também é possível inserir um nome para sensores individuais.
Sensor location can be changed from Controller (corresponding to the terminals on the Power Supply Board), to any decoder output module, if the sensor is connected to an ICD-SEN sensor decoder. Choose the decoder output module to which it will be connected, and then select the Sensor Decoder address and port.
Located on the Devices menu, Sensor Response sets which sensors will shut off which programs, in basic operations.
As respostas do sensor são configuradas para cada programa, em uma página de cada vez. Caso você queira definir as mesmas respostas para vários programas, configure as respostas para o primeiro programa e clique na tecla Copiar. Em seguida, você pode alterar o número do programa e clicar na tecla Colar para usar as mesmas configurações.
Há três entradas padrão para o sensor Clik na placa de alimentação. Se um sensor Hunter Solar Sync estiver configurado, também haverá ajustes para chuva e baixa temperatura.
Ignore: This means the program does not respond to the sensor.
Suspend (recommended): This means the program suspends watering when sensor is active (alarmed) but keeps track of time. If the sensor returns to normal, the suspended program will resume irrigating where it should be at that time in the schedule. The program will end when it was originally scheduled to end.
Pause (use caution): This means that the program stops where it is when the sensor is active. If the sensor returns to normal, the program will resume watering where it left off, causing the program to end later than originally scheduled.
It is not possible for a program to be set to both Pause and Suspend for different sensors, because they cannot both be active at the same time. If you change a response setting for a sensor, and another sensor for the same program changes automatically, this is not a bug.
Rain Delay: In the Sensor Response menu, press the soft key for Rain Delay. This optional setting will cause watering to stay off for a set number of days, after the sensor activation is over. Select the number of days for watering to stay off for each Clik sensor input.
Após conectar um sensor Solar Sync ao controlador, configure sua operação no menu de Dispositivos, Solar Sync.
Solar Sync Delay allows a number of days to wait before automatic Solar Sync adjustment goes into effect (to establish new landscape, for example). Enter a number of days (1–250) to wait, and specify the Adjustment During Delay percentage to use during the delay period. At the end of the delay, the Solar Sync will begin adjusting automatically for the current climate conditions.
The delay does not interfere with the Solar Sync Rain and Temp functions. They will be operational during the delay.
Para concluir a configuração, acesse o menu de Programa, Ajuste Sazonal e defina programas que irão utilizar o Solar Sync.
To connect one or more flow sensors, set up operation in the Devices, Flow Sensors menu.
Select the sensor input number (1–6) to be set up. The controller has three Flow Sensor inputs built in, but three more can be added with the A2C-F3 Flow Expansion module.
ACC2 Decoder versions may also read flow via the two-wire path when flow sensors are connected to ICD-SEN sensor decoders. Use the Location window to select Controller (corresponding to one of the Flow terminals on the Power Supply Board or A2C-F3 flow expansion modules), or to select the decoder output module to which the flow sensor will be connected.
Specify the address of the sensor decoder for the flow sensor. Flow sensors may only be connected to Port "A" of a sensor decoder.
Check the box for either "Hunter" or "Other" flow meters.
If Hunter is checked, move to the Model field and select the Hunter FCT model number for the diameter of the pipe. This is all that is necessary to calibrate the setup.
"Wireless" is only checked for use with the Hunter WFS (wireless flow sensor), which requires a receiver installed at the controller.
If Other is checked, you must select the Flow Sensor Style and enter the calibration information. Some use K-factor and Offset, and others are Pulse type. Consult the flow meter supplier's documentation for the correct settings or contact Hunter Technical Support for additional information.
K-Factor and Offset: Obtain these values from the flow sensor manual, and enter here.
Pulse type: Enter the amount equal to a single pulse.
Insira os dados para cada sensor de vazão conectado a um terminal de vazão. Se todos os medidores forem do mesmo tipo e tamanho, você pode utilizar as teclas para copiar e colar.
Após inserir os dados para cada entrada do sensor de vazão, o controlador estará pronto para fazer a leitura da vazão. Contudo, para permitir o monitoramento em tempo real, cada sensor de vazão deve ser vinculado a um Setor de Vazão (Vazão, Setores de Vazão).
O Total de Vazão pode ser visto no menu de Vazão.
As taxas de vazão atuais (dadas pelo sensor) podem ser vistas na tela de Início/Atividades por meio da tecla Veja a Vazão.
Flow Monitoring: Additional setup for station level flow monitoring is required in the Flow menu (Flow Zones), and in the Stations, Station Setup menu.
