K-Rain Manufacturing announces the global release of their new 2-wire irrigation controller.
The SiteMaster offers a 99 zone capability and is designed for large commercial, industrial and residential irrigation sites. Unlike a conventional controller, the SiteMaster uses a single 2-wire communication path and addressable decoders to control valves, pump starts and flow sensors. The advantage is a higher zone/station capacity and decoders can be placed at great distances away from the controller – up to 2.8 miles away with a fully loaded 99 zone system. The result is savings on wire and installation labor since all the valves share the same two wire path. “Easy set up and advanced diagnostics is what sets the SiteMaster apart from the pack”, says Josh Carmichael, K-Rain Engineering Manager. “For example, the decoder status screen is a quick and easy way to check outgoing and incoming signal strength of each decoder. And the interactive fault screen provides detailed information about an error and its location.” According to Chip Kah, K-Rain President, “The large display screen, full keyboard and an easy programming dial make setting and operating the SiteMaster simple and intuitive.”K-Rain
