Reliable Battery-Powered Control Without the Need of an Electrical Connection

For isolated sites and power-restricted areas, the Hunter Node is the smart, reliable solution. The Node mounts to a valve's solenoid quickly and easily, and without screws, drills or additional wires. The unit's solid construction and waterproof exterior ensure it can handle the harsh environment of a valve box. The Node is powered by one or two 9V batteries and provides standard or extended power throughout the season. Along with exceptional reliability, the Node features an easy-to-program LCD screen, the ability to control a Master Valve, and uses standard Hunter controller programming with 3 programs and 4 start times per program. The array of programming options and rugged reliability make the Node a compact, but powerful irrigation controller with the flexibility of battery power.

Advanced Features:

Compatible with Solar Panel Kit

The Node's optional Solar Panel Kit (SPNODE) eliminates the need for batteries and provides maintenance-free operation by harnessing the sun’s energy. Once connected, the Solar Panel supplies 100% of the controllers’ power, and eliminates the alkaline batteries. This “eco-innovations” alternative is more environmentally friendly and allows for maintenance-free operation of the controller.

Easy Retrieve™ Memory

A manual back-up utility that stores complete controller scheduling and setup information in back-up memory. This allows the saved watering schedule to be restored at any time. This can be used to set a controller back to its initial settings after tampering or at the beginning of a new season.

Global Seasonal Adjustment

This feature allows for quick adjustments to irrigation run times through a percentage scale. During peak season, set the seasonal adjustment to 100%. If weather conditions require less water, enter the appropriate percentage value (i.e. 50%) to cut down irrigation run times without the need to adjust each station in the program.

Sensor Compatibility

Node is compatible with hard-wired Hunter Clik sensors and other micro-switch type weather sensors for enhanced efficiency.

Battery Life Indicator

All units include a clear display of available battery life so users can accurately schedule for replacement.
