The I-Core now has the Solar Sync software built into the controller. New I-Core controllers with built in Solar Sync are easily identified by the new Solar Sync Settings dial position on the facepack. Because the new I-Core has built in Solar Sync software, the Solar Sync Sensor is the only item to be connected to the controller. The Solar Sync module will not be used and is not compatible with I-Core controllers that have Solar Sync software built in.
If connecting a Wireless Solar Sync to the I-Core, steps 1-5 are the same except in step 1, you will be connecting the green and black wires from the Wireless Solar Sync Receiver to the S1 terminal positions. The Wireless Solar Sync Receiver then communicates with the Wireless Sensor.
The Solar Sync can be programmed to adjust station run times by program. To set the I-Core to Solar Sync Adjust mode:
Once a Solar Sync is connected and programmed the station run times will be adjusted according to the findings of the Solar Sync. The Solar Sync will automatically adjust station run times and can be programmed independently for each of the four I-Core programs. The Rain Clik and Freeze-Clik sensor incorporated in the Solar Sync can be programmed by station which is discussed in the Set Sensor Operation section.
The older style I-Core controllers (No SOLAR SYNC SETTINGS on the dial) require the installation of the Solar Sync module as well as the Sensor. Older I-Core controllers may need a new power module to work with Solar Sync. The I-Core power module must have a date code of Jul 10 or later to be compatible with Solar Sync. The date code is located on top of power module.
