Naming Programs and Stations

Naming the progams and stations can be very helpful when you need a better referecne for location (e.g. Front Lawn, Back Drip, etc.).


Cycle & Soak

The Cycle and Soak feature allows you to split a station’s runtime into shorter watering periods. The shorter watering periods will help prevent run off in situations like slopes or tight soils. It is recommended that the Cycle time is less than the station’s watering time, and the Soak time for the water to be absorbed. The total number of cycles is determined by taking the total programmed station run time and dividing it by the Cycle time.  Turn on in the Station settings. Input the amount of time the station shall run and pause. Confirm and Save.

Programmable Days Off

Set from 1-99 days. Confirm and Save.

Seasonal Adjustment

Seasonal Adjustment is used to make global run time changes without re-programming the entire controller. Quickly adjusts run times from 10% to 300% global or by month. Confirm and Save.

Delay Between Stations

This feature allows the user to select a time delay between the end of one station run time and the start of another station's run time. The delay can be set for 10 seconds up to 4 hours. The delay is a convenient feature when working with slow closing valves or slow well water recovery.  Confirm and Save.

Pump/Master Valve

Turn On to assign Station 1 to use as a pump or master valve for all programs. Station 1 will no longer be used for irrigation. Requires multi-station NODE-BT and normally closed master valve.
