Pro-C - Setting Multiple Programs

Tabs

Read Article

If you want to run separate stations (or zones) on different days, you would use 2 different programs.  Hunter controllers have multiple programs (A, B, and C) and the ability for each program to have multiple start times.  To set up each program, you would need START TIMES, RUN TIMES, and WATER DAYS for each of them.

Here is an example of a program for a 4 station controller:

You have a 4 Station Pro-C controller. Your lawn stations are valves #1 and #2. Your shrubs stations are valves #3 and #4. You want the lawn stations to water Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 4:00am and again at 6:00am for 6 minutes per station. Then you want the shrub stations to water on Saturdays at 6:00am for 10 minutes per station.

Here is what each program would look like on the door card:

To set the programs shown in the example above:
