Product Description

Hunter XC-Hybrid Controller Series

Don’t have power nearby, not a problem with the XC Hybrid Controller.

The XC Hybrid is ready for indoor or outdoor installation. Available in 6 or 12 station models with plastic (indoor/outdoor) Enclosure. This makes it a good choice for residential or commercial applications, such as parks, gardens, roadway medians or roundabouts.

EASY RETRIEVE™ MEMORY

Saves and stores your complete controller schedule and setup information in back-up memory allowing the saved schedule to be restored at any time.

ONE TOUCH MANUAL START AND ADVANCE

Need to manually start/test a program? Simply press and hold the right arrow button, then add the run time to the appropriate station.

RAIN SENSOR BYPASS

A simple toggle switch that controls the input signal from the weather sensor (Rain-Clik, Freeze-Clik, Wind-Clik, etc). Just set the switch to “Bypass” and the controller will ignore the signal from the sensor and irrigate as scheduled.

PROGRAMMABLE RAIN DELAY

This feature helps prevent watering during extended periods of inclement weather by allowing the user to set the controller to the OFF mode, for any specified number of days, then resumes the watering schedule automatically without returning to the controller.  The controller will display the number of days remaining before watering resumes.

NON-VOLATILE MEMORY

This feature offers protection against unreliable power, retaining current time, date, and program data.

GLOBAL SEASONAL ADJUSTMENT

The Seasonal Adjustment feature makes adjustments to your irrigation run times fast and easy. Using a percentage scale you would set your peak season to 100% then when conditions require less water you simply adjust the percentage (i.e. 50%) to reduce the run times, without having to adjust each station in the program.

DELAY BETWEEN STATIONS

This feature allows the user to program a delay between the stations as the controller advances through the program.  This can be a short, few second delay (to allow for slow-closing valves) or a longer period of time (giving pressure tanks time to recharge), based on user requirements.

SENSOR PROGRAMMABILITY

Sensor Programmability allows the user to specify which program or stations will be shut down in response to a specific sensor alarm. Any stations or programs unaffected by the sensor will continue automatic operations.

No Power, No Problem
Battery operated controllers allow irrigation to occur without tapping into an electrical connection. They still maintain most of the user-friendly features provided by their wired counterparts.
