Simple to use, the DC Pro has an intuitive icon-driven display and is fully waterproof up to 2m. This makes it ideal for mounting inside a valve box.
One 9 volt battery will power the DC Pro for an entire irrigation season. The DC Pro offers the flexibility and programming options to suit a variety of applications and watering schedules. Its ability to be retrofitted with existing valves and solenoid coils provides flexibility for contractors to seamlessly add the DC Pro to existing installations. The non-volatile memory retains programming in the event of battery failure or short circuit, whilst the controller will automatically prevent watering when the battery life is low.
The DC Pro’s Runtime Extension feature offers flexibility to adjust watering schedules with the touch of a button. “Sometimes you need to water for longer, I like that I can just operate the controller manually and extend the watering time when plants need it. Once the manual run is complete the automatic irrigation will resume as per usual,” says Brett Robinson of Adelaide-based landscape construction company, Outside Ideas.
“The battery controller is also easy to retrofit to most DC-latching solenoids and is compatible with Toro and other branded rain sensors. That’s great for contractors like me who work at different sites, where different brand products are used.”
The Toro DC pro comes complete with Toro EZP valve and DC latching coil and is available from Toro dealers nationally.
