Connect a decoder with the programming cup. Move the pointer to the Turn Station On/Off and press Next .
The ICD-HP will first connect to the decoder and display the first station output. If the decoder is a multi-station decoder, use the left and right arrow buttons to move to the station to turn on or off.
Press + to turn a station on. The station will run for approximately 1 minute if running alone, or 12 minutes if another station is running from the controller (see Important Notes in this section). The State will change from Off to On after a few seconds.
If the station is connected to a pressurized valve, the water will turn on. Take care to keep the ICD-HP out of the water from sprinklers.
Press – to turn a station off. The station will turn off and the State will change from On to Off after a few seconds.
Important Notes: The ICD-HP cannot set a run time for a decoder activation. The ACC controller will send an Off command down the two-wire path once per minute when no stations are supposed to be running. If you turn a station on with the ICD-HP, this controller command will turn that station back off within a minute.
If longer run times are required for diagnostic purposes, turn another decoder station on from the ACC controller or with a remote control (ICR, ROAM, or Maintenance Radio). As long as this station is running from the controller, the “off” command will not be sent every minute.
If another station is running from the controller as described, and a station in the field is turned on with the ICD-HP, it will run for approximately 12 minutes or until it is turned off from the ICD-HP.
Special Note for IDS and “Viking” systems: These earlier decoder controllers can operate ICD decoders via serial numbers. In these systems, there may not be station numbers programmed directly into the ICD decoders because those controllers do not use them. If you wish to activate stations in these systems from ICD-HP, program temporary station numbers into the decoder from the Decoder Programming menu. Turn the controller power off for approximately 15 seconds, then turn the power back on to allow the station address to set permanently in memory. The Turn Station On and Off commands will then work.
The ICD-HP will not work with older Viking style decoders, only with ICD decoders installed in Viking type systems.
