Due to the rapid acceptance of the Hunter ROAM amongst Hunter Irrigation Products suppliers and end users, this Support Article is dedicated to the installation guidelines of our remote control kit.
Preparing the Communication Port
To utilize the ROAM and ROAMXL Remote Control Systems, your controller must be equipped with a Smartport wiring harness, which provides the communication port where the ROAM and ROAMXL receiver is attached. One wiring harness and installation instruction guide is provided with each ROAM and ROAMXL. Additional wiring harnesses may be purchased separately to allow you to utilize the transmitter and receiver with additional Hunter controllers.
Connecting the Wiring Harness Kit
1. Install a 1/2"(12.7mm) female threaded "Tee" in the field wiring conduit approximately 12"(304.8mm) below the the Hunter controller.
Note: the harness may be installed outdoors by first bringing the conduit through an exterior wall, then installing the appropriate fitting.
2. Feed the red, white, and blue wires of the harness through the base of the "Tee" and into the controller wiring compartment.
3. Screw the harness housing into the "Tee" (or other fitting).
4. Attach the red, white, and blue wires from the harness to the terminal block of the controller.
5.The wiring harness' 1/2" male thread has a 90º ratcheting mechanism to allow the receiver to be set in a vertical position for the best reception.
