The XC Hybrid operates on six AA alkaline batteries (see fig. 1), and the XC Hybrid Stainless uses six C batteries (see fig. 2). A battery carrier is supplied with your controller. Insert the batteries as indicated on the battery carrier. Connect that battery connector inside the access compartment to the battery carrier and insert the carrier into the lower left side of the controller as shown.

We would prefer that you use a Hunter valve with a Hunter DC latching solenoid, but we realize that sometimes you may be retrofitting existing systems that have another manufacturer’s valves. We have done testing on the following solenoids and have found these to operate with the Hunter SVC, WVC, NODE and XC Hybrid battery powered controllers. (some of these DC latching solenoids required a reduced system pressure, below 150 PSI (10.34 bars/1034.25 kPa), to ensure proper operation):

Similar to a sprinkler head, the Eco-Indicator pops up to provide visual indication that a drip system is operating.

The Automatic Flush Valve (AFV) allows debris to be flushed out of any dripline system.

  • It is good practice to install an AFV at the end of any single dripline or grid of dripline.
  • Flush the zone prior to use. 
  • An AFV may be used for any dripline system without check valves and will flush the line every time the system starts. Install after initial system flush.

Some of the features of the WVP include:

  • Simple, push button programming
  • Large Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) with easy to under- stand icons
  • Radio communication WVC controllers up to 100 feet away
  • Operates on standard 9-volt alkaline battery
  • Days-of-the-week watering schedule
  • Up to 9 start times per day
  • Run times from 1 minute to 4 hours
  • Manual watering
  • Low battery status shows status of life of the battery in the WVP and WVC

The system off function will turn your WVC controller off, stopping all automatic watering until turned back on with your WVP.

This feature permits the user to stop all programmed watering for a designated period from 1 to 7 days. At the end of the programmable rain off period, the controller will resume normal automatic operation.

 

USA

All program information and manual watering is conducted with the WVP and individual WVC controllers using radio signals. Under normal conditions, these operations can be conducted up to 100 feet from the controller. The Transmit/Receive button on the handle of the WVP is used to establish radio contact to transmit and receive data.  It is recommended procedure to first retrieve the program from a WVC, review and make necessary changes, and then transmit the new program back to the WVC.
