1. Digital Display

A large LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) shows the time of day and indicates many of the programming settings. The display is completely interactive with all other controls.

Thank you for selecting an Orbit® sprinkler Timer. Orbit® designers have combined the simplicity of mechanical switches with the accuracy of digital electronics to give you a Timer that is both easy to program and extremely versatile. The Orbit® Timer provides convenience and flexibility, letting you run a fully automatic, semi-automatic, or a manual watering program for all your watering needs. Please read this manual completely before you begin to program and use the controller. A few of the most notable design features include:

2. Programming Keys

The Timer has seven push button keys for setup and program entry. Working in conjunction with the rotary selector, the keys are used to set the time of day, watering time, watering days, start times, and other functions.

3. Selector Dial

This large dial makes it easy to see which function is currently selected and/or in which mode the Timer is set to operate.

4. Reset Button

The reset button clears the time, date and user-defined programming but does not remove the factory installed fail-safe program. To prevent an accidental reset, the button is recessed into the panel and must be pressed with a small pointed object such as a pen or pencil tip.

At-a-Glance Simplicity

By turning the rotary dial to one of nine settings you can review programming or easily make changes.

Arm Chair Programmable

By inserting two AA alkaline batteries you can program the Timer prior to installing it in its permanent location.

Notable Programming Features

Two Watering Programs--Summary

The Timer gives you the option of using one or both of the independent programs. Note that each station can independently be set to either A or B or both A and B programs.

Fail-Safe Program / Non-Volatile Program Memory

If the Timer loses AC power, the existing program will not be lost. After the AC power returns, the Timer will recall the last program into memory and there will be no need to re-program. If both the AC power is lost and the batteries are dead or missing, the user will only need to reset the time and date; all other program settings are held in non-volatile memory, and there is no need for re-entry.

Program­A

This program lets you schedule selected stations to water on specific days of the week or to water every 2nd day. Program A repeats itself continuously in successive weeks.

Red flashing LED indicates blown fuse. The 0.75 amp slow-blow fuse provides circuit protection. For replacement, use WaterMaster 0.75 amp fuse or equivalent.

Program­B

Provides two options: One for odd or even day watering or for intervals ranging from everyday to every 28th day. This feature is designed to meet the growing needs and restrictions imposed by local governments and to conserve water. The Timer automatically calculates odd and even days (by date) for each month and makes adjustments for leap years to provide true odd and even watering through the year 2095.

WATERING INTERVAL

The Timer has the intelligence to "stack" start times that overlap. If you enter two or more start times that overlap (in the same or in different programs), the Timer will not activate two stations at the same time. Instead, the Timer activates the first station and then activates the next station(s) in sequence after the first station finishes its preset watering duration. The Timer will NOT stack to the next calendar day. This prevents the Timer from violating an odd or even day watering schedule.

Manual and Semi-Automatic Modes 1

The Timer gives you a number of manual and semi-automatic modes for flexibility in watering. You can override the Timer's automatic programming in a variety of ways.

Programming the Timer can be accomplished in just a few basic steps. Before you begin programming, it is important to install the battery, set the time of day and date, and establish a watering plan.

Y H R DA NT YEA O M

FIGURE 3: LCD Display with Surrounding Information

Install the Batteries

Cursor

Remove the terminal cover. Insert two AA batteries into the battery compartment. Return the terminal cover to its closed position. Weak or missing batteries can cause the time and date to be erased after a power failure. If this happens, you will need to install fully charged batteries and re-enter the time and date. All other program settings will be maintained in non-volatile memory. The display will show "LO BAT" when it is time to replace the battery.

FIGURE 4

Caution: If a watering schedule is not entered into the Timer, the factory installed fail-safe program will turn on each station every day for 10 minutes. To avoid accidental valve activation, either turn the rotary dial to OFF or enter a watering schedule.

Set the Time of Day and Date

RAIN DELAY

Establish a Watering Schedule

If this is the first time the Timer has been programmed, you should press the small recessed button labeled RESET. Pressing RESET does not affect the factory installed fail-safe program [See Figure 2].

To help you visualize how best to program the Timer, it might be helpful to make a watering plan on paper. This will help you establish which days and times you want to water.

FIGURE 2: Programming Keys

Turn the rotary dial to the TIME/DATE position [See Figure 3]. 12:00 AM will appear in the display with three arrows pointing to the year, month, and day. Use the + and - keys to set the correct time of day. When the correct time of day is reached, press the ENTER key to lock in the time. To increase or decrease more rapidly, hold down either the + or ­ keys until the display goes into rapid advance mode. A blinking cursor will appear below the arrow for the year, month, and date when programming [See Figure 4]. Use the + and ­ keys to set the correct year, then press ENTER. Use the + and ­ keys to set the correct month, then press ENTER. Use the + and ­ keys to set the correct date, then press ENTER.

The Timer requires two AA batteries to maintain the time and date in case of AC power loss. In a typical installation, fully charged batteries should provide sufficient power for approximately one year of operation.

You have the option of entering your watering schedule in whatever order you like. This feature makes it very easy to review and change your watering schedule. Your settings can be changed at any time--while you're setting up the initial schedule or even after years of operation.

FIGURE 6: Station Duration for Program A

Start Times for Program A or B

Note: A start time is the time of day that the program begins watering the first station, and all other stations in the program will then follow in sequence. There are not separate start times for each station. Start times do not correspond to specific stations, but to programs (A or B). If you enter more than one start time, all stations in the specified program will water again (in sequence). The way you set the cycle start time is the same for both programs. Turn the rotary dial to the CYCLE START TIMES position in the program that you want to set. The display will show an A or B depending on which program you have selected. The display will show ---- : ---- and a blinking cursor in CYCLE START 1 location [See Figure 5]. Set the time you want to begin watering for start time 1 using the + or ­ keys, then press the ENTER key. The display will advance to START 2. For additional start times, simply repeat this procedure by using the + and ­ keys to enter the time and then press ENTER.

1. Choosing a Timer Location

Select a location near a standard electrical outlet. Avoid using an outlet controlled by an ON/OFF switch. The timer should not be exposed to the weather or operate at temperatures below 14 degrees or above 113 degrees Fahrenheit (-10 to 45 degrees Celsius). Avoid direct sunlight. For use under "normal pollution conditions". Installation works best in a garage or protected area. The timer should not be mounted outdoors. A mounting template is provided to assist you in mounting the timer. Screw a No. 8 screw at eye level leaving the screw head extended out from the wall about 1/8 inch. Use expanding anchors in plaster or masonry if necessary. Slip the keyhole slot in the back of the timer over the extended screw. Screw a No. 8 screw through each of the two holes at the bottom of the box into the wall [See Figure 16].

All our Weather-resistant Indoor/Outdoor controllers can run at temperatures between 35 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit (0 to 60degrees Celsius). Storage temperature is -4 to 149F (-20 to 65C). Direct sunlight can easily increase temperatures inside the Controllers so chose a shaded location. The controllers are weather-resistant to UL-50 and ETL® Listed, but should not be placed in areas where continuous water could cause damage. Caution: Do not open the Controller when it is raining. To make installation easier the Controller has a removable door. Remember to leave at least 7ins (18cm) to the left of the controller box for the door to swing open after installation. Check the model number of your timer: various models are configured differently to meet national requirements, look for the section covering the model number on your controller. The model number can be found on the back of the housing, together with other useful information.

Preparing the Controller for Permanent Installation Before commencing to install the controller you must remove the fitted line cord and replace with the pigtail wires provided. Take off the terminal compartment cover by unscrewing the two screws and pulling the plastic cover forward. [See figure 18], this reveals the AC Power Cover [Figure 21]. Remove the rubber weather plug from the hole in the center and unscrew the one fixing screw, pull the plastic cover forward to reveal the AC wiring. Use a punch to create a hole in the blind Bottom Mounting Hole on the back of the controller box [Figure 19: Bottom Mounting Hole]. Loosen the screw on the cord restraint and the three screws on the terminal block and remove the line cord completely. Feed the three wires of the pigtail through the exit nipple, under the strain relief, and cross to the terminal block. Fasten the wires to the terminal block ensuring that the black wire is connected to the Live terminal marked L, the white wire is connected to the Neutral terminal marked N, and the green wire is connected to the Earth terminal marked E. Ensure that the terminal screws and the strain relief screw are all firmly tightened. Check that the wires are clear of any obstruction and will not be trapped by the AC Power Cover when it is replaced. Replace the AC Power Cover and screw tight, do not force into place, if resistance is met check that no wires are trapped. The Controller is now ready for permanent installation; follow all the instructions for the following models to complete the installation. (use expanding anchors in plaster or masonry if necessary).

If the distance between the controller and valves is under 700 feet (210 m), use WaterMaster® sprinkler wire or 20 gauge (AWG) plastic jacketed thermostat wire to connect the controller to the valves. If the distance is over 700 feet (210 m), use 16 gauge (AWG) wire. Terminals accept up to 14 gauge wire. The wire can be buried in the ground; however, for more protection wires can be pulled through conduit and buried underground. Be careful to avoid burying the wires in locations where they could be damaged by digging or trenching in the future.

Wiring the AC input

Caution: do not connect the controller to one phase of a there-phase power system used by a pump or other electrical equipment. The controller has a nipple-mounted external power connection [Figure 21]. Use this 1/2 inch (13mm) NPT nipple to connect the controller to a standard electrical junction box that should be UL Listed (or equivalent) or comply with IEC or EN standards (or equivalent). Turn off the AC power at the AC circuit breaker and apply an appropriate safety lockout. Verify that the power has been turned off to the installation site using an AC voltmeter set for the correct measurement range. Use power feed wire of 14 gauge (AWG) minimum with a temperature rating of 155 degrees Fahrenheit (68 degrees Celsius) or higher. Install the conduit and associated fittings. Connect the AC electrical power wiring to the source by following all the right codes and local standards. Connect the junction box (not included) to the NPT nipple [Figure 21]. Connect the source power conduit to the entrance of the junction box, following all the appropriate codes. Connect the source wires to the wires extending from the controller. Take care to follow the correct color code. For USA: connect the Green for Ground, Black for Live, and White for Neutral. Often the source ground may be bare copper conductor rather than green wire. For Europe: Live is Brown and Neutral is Blue, there is no ground connection required. Be sure that all wires are connected to the proper source wire. Make sure all connections are made with code-approved insulated connectors. Be sure to place a weatherproof gasket and lid on the junction box. 8

Valves

FIGURE 22: Connecting Timer Wires to Valves

Each valve has two wires. One wire is to be connected as the common. The common wires for all the valves can be connected together to one common wire going to the timer. The other valve wire is to be connected to the specific station wire that will control that valve [See Figure 22]. All wires should be joined together using wire nuts, solder, and/or vinyl tape. For additional protection to waterproof connections, a WaterMaster® grease cap can be used. To avoid electrical hazards, only one valve should be connected to each station.

2. Connecting Valve Wires to the Timer

Remove the terminal compartment cover. Strip 1/4" (6 mm) of the plastic insulation off the end of each wire. Determine which valve you want to connect to which station. Connect

2. Programming Buttons

The controller has seven push buttons for setup and program entry. Working in conjunction with the rotary dial, the buttons are used to set the time of day, watering time, watering days, start times, and other functions.

Thank you for selecting an Orbit® sprinkler controller. Orbit® designers have combined the simplicity of mechanical switches with the accuracy of digital electronics to give you a controller that is both easy to program and extremely versatile. The Orbit® controller provides convenience and flexibility, letting you run a fully automatic, semi-automatic, or a manual watering program for all your watering needs. Please read this manual completely before you begin to program and use the controller. A few of the most notable design features include:

3. Duration Slide Switches

The vertical slide switches set the number of minutes a station is on when the controller is operated in automatic mode. The slide switches also set any individual station to always on, always off, or on with duration when the controller is operated in manual mode.

4. Program Slide Switches

The program slide switches assign each station to one of three programs: Program A (14 day cycle), Program B (interval cycle), or Programs A and B combined.

At-a-Glance Simplicity

By turning the rotary dial to one of seven settings you can review programming or easily make changes.

5. Rotary Selector Dial

The heart of the controller is the rotary selector dial. This dial makes it easy to see which function is currently selected and/or in which mode the controller is set to operate.

Arm Chair Programmable

By inserting two AA alkaline batteries you can program the controller prior to installing it in its permanent location.

Automatic Electronic Circuit Breaker w/Fail Safe

An electronic circuit breaker protects the controller's power supply. If the circuit breaker trips, it will reset automatically. In most cases, there is no loss of data or watering cycles.

6. Reset Button

The reset button clears all your programming but does not remove the factory installed fail-safe program. To prevent an accidental reset, the button is recessed into the panel and must be pressed with a small pointed object such as a pen or pencil tip.

PROGRAM STATION DATE MONTH YEAR

Smart-Scan® Diagnostic Fault Sensing

A diagnostic fault sensor skips over any station that has a short in the solenoid or wiring. If the controller senses a short in a station, it skips the faulty station and moves on to the next programmed station. The controller displays FAULTY and identifies the faulty station number.

Notable Programming Features

Two Watering Programs--Summary

The controller gives you the option of using any or all of these independent programs. Note that each station can independently be set to either A or B or both A and B programs.

section

Getting Started

Program A--Days

Any or all days in a two week schedule can be set to water. This program lets you schedule selected stations to water on specific days of the first and second weeks. At the end of the two weeks, Program A repeats continuously.

Programming the controller can be accomplished in just a few basic steps. Before you begin programming, it is important to install the batteries, set the time of day and date, and determine a watering plan.

Install the Batteries

The controller requires two AA alkaline batteries to keep the program in memory in case of AC power loss. In a typical installation, fully charged batteries should provide sufficient power for approximately one year of protection. Therefore, we recommend changing the batteries annually. Remove the battery cover by sliding it to the left. Insert two AA alkaline batteries into the battery compartment. Return the battery cover to its closed position. Weak or missing batteries can cause the time, date, and program to be erased after a power failure. If this happens, you will need to install fully charged batteries and reprogram the controller. Note: Batteries alone will not operate the valves in your sprinkling system. The 24volt transformer must be plugged in and have power to operate your system normally.

Program B--Interval, Odd, Even

Provides two options: One for odd or even day watering and another for an interval ranging from every day to every 28th day. This feature is designed to meet the growing needs and restrictions imposed by local governments and to conserve water. The controller automatically calculates odd and even days (by date) for each month and makes adjustments for leap years to provide true odd and even watering. An interval of "1" will water every day, an interval of "2" will water every other day, and so on.

Program A+B--Combined

This setting allows the stations to water under a combination of the A and B programs. This feature is especially useful for new grass (for watering up to 8 times per day) and allows greater flexibility in scheduling watering. If both the A and B programs are scheduled to water on a specific day, the station will water multiple times per day.

Set the Time of Day and Date

If this is the first time the controller has been programmed, you should press the small recessed button labeled RESET. Pressing RESET does not affect the factory installed fail-safe program [See Figure 2].

MANUAL CLEAR NEXT

PROGRAM RESET

Start-Time Stacking

The controller has the intelligence to "stack" start times that might overlap. If you enter two or more start times that overlap (in the same or in different programs), the controller will not activate two stations at the same time. Instead, the controller activates the first program cycle and then activates the next program cycle(s) in sequence after the first program finishes its preset watering duration. The controller will not stack to the next calendar day. This prevents the controller from violating an odd or even day watering schedule.

RAIN DELAY

FIGURE 2: Programming Keys

Do not press the RESET button again unless you want to completely remove all your programming. Turn the rotary dial to the SET TIME/DATE position. 12:00 AM will appear in the display with three arrows pointing to the year, month, and day. Press and hold the + button to advance the clock to the correct time of day. Use the ­ button to go in reverse [See Figure 3]. When the correct time of day is reached, press the ENTER button to lock in the time.

Manual and Semi-Automatic Modes

The controller gives you a number of manual and semi-automatic modes for flexibility in watering. You can override the controller's automatic programming in a variety of ways.

User-Selectable Rain Delay

Unique watering delay button cancels program for 24, 48, or 72 hours (userselectable), then resumes automatically.

After the time of day, date, and year are set, this procedure does not need to be entered again for any other programming. Caution: If a watering schedule is not entered into the controller, the factory installed fail-safe program will turn on each station every day for 10 minutes. To avoid accidental station activation, either turn the rotary switch to OFF or enter a watering schedule.

Briefly describe each station and its location. In the A-Days Program column, circle the desired watering days. Enter the cycle start time for Program A. Generally, only one cycle time is required for Program A. Enter the watering duration for each station assigned to Program A. In the B-Interval Program column, fill in the desired interval (1 to 28) or circle odd or even. Repeat steps 3-4 for the B-Interval Program. start

Determine a Watering Plan

To help you visualize how best to program the controller, it might be helpful to make a watering plan on paper. This will help you establish which days and times you want to water. Use the sticker inside the controller door to help determine and record your watering plan.

ENGLISH

To increase or decrease more rapidly, hold down either the + or ­ buttons until the display goes into rapid advance mode.

Sample Watering Plan

Before programming the controller, we suggest that you fill out the watering plan sticker inside the door. Below is a sample watering plan for your reference.

Programming

Program A Setup

Program A is a two-week daily schedule. Watering may be scheduled for each of the 14 days. After 14 days, the A program continues to repeat itself--there is no need to reselect the watering days. To set the watering days, [Note Figure 6] Set start times as outlined in the previous column (Start Times for Program A or B). Turn the rotary selector to SET WATERING DAYS. The cursor (--) will blink above the current day in the first week. Any or all days in the two-week schedule can be programmed to water. To program a day to water, press ENTER. An arrow will be displayed above programmed days and the cursor will move to the next day. To advance to a specific day, press NEXT. To clear a day, press NEXT until the cursor is above that day, then press CLEAR.

PROGRAM

The controller has three programs that control a variety of watering plans. Depending on your needs, you can use one or all programs.

Enter the Watering Schedule in Any Order

You have the option of entering your watering schedule in whatever order you like. This feature makes it very easy to review and change your watering schedule. Your settings can be changed at any time--while you're setting up the initial schedule or even after years of operation.

Start Times for Program A or B

Note: A cycle start time is the time of day that the program begins watering the first station, and all other programmed stations will then follow in sequence. There are not separate start times for each station. Cycle start times do not correspond to specific stations. If you enter more than one cycle start time, all stations programmed to operate will water again (in sequence). The way you set the cycle start time is the same for all programs. To set the cycle start times for each program you will be using, do the following: Turn the rotary selector to set the CYCLE START TIMES position in the program that you want to set up. The display will show an A or B depending on which program you have selected. The display will show ---- : ---- and a blinking cursor will appear in START 1 location [See Figure 5]. Set the time you want to begin watering for cycle start time 1 using the + or ­ buttons, then press the ENTER button. For additional cycle start times, simply press NEXT to advance to the next cycle start time and repeat this procedure by using the + and ­ buttons to enter the time and then press ENTER. Generally, only one cycle start time is required for each program (A, B).

Program B is used to water an interval from 1 to 28 or on odd or even days. An interval of 1 will water every day; an interval of 2 will water today and then every other day, etc. The odd or even schedule is based on the date. If the time of day and the date are set correctly, the controller will only water on even or odd days. If selected, the controller has leap-year compensation to ensure conformance to the odd or even schedule. To set the watering interval, Set start times as outlined in the previous column (Start Times for Program A or B). Turn the rotary selector to SET WATERING INTERVAL. The cursor will blink to the right of the word INTERVAL. [Note Figure 7.]

Note: You cannot set a cycle start time for each station. Stations can be assigned to either Program A or B or both A and B. Each program can have up to four cycle start times. Stations assigned to either program will turn on sequentially according to the cycle start times assigned. Generally only one cycle start time is required for each program (A, B).

FIGURE 7: Program B Setup for Fixed Schedule

When selecting an interval of days, press the + or ­ buttons to the desired interval. (Example: If you want to water once every ten days, the interval will be set for 10.) To program the interval, press ENTER. To select either odd or even day watering, press NEXT. This moves the cursor to the odd or even setting. Then press ENTER.

Note: If an interval of "3" is entered today, the controller will water for the first time today and then again every third day. Note: The controller will NOT water on the first day the program is entered or modified if the start time(s) have already passed.

The Orbit® controller lets you easily review a complete watering plan. For example, to review Program A watering cycle start times, simply turn the rotary selector to the CYCLE START TIMES position in Program A and check the times that have been entered. Using the NEXT button, you can advance through the schedule without fear of disturbing any programming. If you want to change the cycle start times, watering days, or watering intervals, simply follow the directions for that program modification. After reviewing or changing a watering schedule, remember to turn the rotary selector back to AUTO if you want the c
