RAIN BIRD ET MANAGER OUTDOOR ENCLOSURE:

Protect your Rain Bird ET Manager with proven security. The ET Manager Outdoor Enclosure is a lockable, weatherproof, UV-protected plastic cabinet. The integrated mounting plate is pre-drilled for the ET Manager.

For best results the ET Manager needs real-time weather from the Weather Reach Signal. There are many existing Signal Providers across the country. To check for Weather Reach Signal Service in your area go to www.rainbird.com/wrsp. Some offer the signal as a public service while others provide the signal with an annual subscription. If service is not available, there are several options for new signal service.

If service is not available or you are waiting for signal service, the ET Manager will operate effectively on Historical ET. Performance is enhanced with an on-site rain gauge.

Although over-watering has always been something people tried to avoid, increasing water scarcity has brought this problem into the spotlight. No matter how efficient an irrigation controller’s watering schedule is, however, it must take into account constantly changing weather conditions – specifically evapotranspiration (ET) and rainfall.

ET is the amount of water lost from the soil through evaporation plus the plant’s water loss (known as transpiration), both of which are dramatically affected by weather conditions. Rain Bird ET Manager™ uses current weather information and ET to water your landscape only when it needs it. Since precise landscape water management is key to avoiding over-watering, the ET Manager can be an effective tool.

This simple, powerful irrigation management solution works with virtually any controller, converting a conventional irrigation system into a weather-smart one that adjusts itself according to accurate real-time weather data. The ET Manager helps to maintain the optimum moisture balance in your soil. As the weather changes, your ET Manager receives updates automatically every hour and only allows your controller to water when needed. The result: significant water savings, deeper root systems, and a healthier landscape.

Features

Unsurpassed Accuracy

Solar - Temperature - Wind - Humidity - RainfallThe ET Manager is the most accurate product of its kind, featuring hourly (not just daily) wireless updates from local precision weather stations. ET Manager technology is based on the Irrigation Association endorsed, ASCE*-standardized ET equation, and includes data from all required climatic variables (solar radiation, temperature, wind, and humidity). An optional onsite rain gauge can further localize the weather data accuracy. With the ET Manager, your irrigation system will always be in tune with the weather.

Healthier Landscapes

Increased watering schedule control means your irrigation system delivers water only when the landscape needs it. Best horticultural practices recommend deep, less-frequent watering. The ET Manager does just that. Through a process known as “Managed Allowed Depletion,” it allows your soil’s moisture balance to reach a user-set moisture level that increases oxygen and promotes deeper, healthier root systems.

Easy Setup and Installation

Easy Set up and installationInstalling the unit is simple: Mount it to the wall near your existing controller, connect the controller common wire(s) and enter the simple site-specific information. A one-page step-by-step installation poster and quick user guide allow for quick, convenient installation and setup. In just minutes, ET Manager is ready to receive hourly weather data from the nearest local precision weather stations. ET Manager Scheduler software, included free, makes it easy to program your ET Manager and existing or new controller. Best of all, you get the benefit of comprehensive weather station data without having to install and maintain one onsite.

Cost-Effective Solution

Your Controller Connects to the ET Manager Control DeviceET Manager is flexible and works with virtually any existing irrigation controller. Nearly any irrigation configuration – from the smallest residential yard to the largest commercial application – can benefit from ET Manager. Dramatic water savings mean that ET Manager is the smart choice for nearly any non-central control application: state agencies, water districts, universities, schools, parks, commercial buildings, planned communities, homeowner associations, apartment buildings, and more.

Rain Bird Reliability

Rain Bird has been a pioneer in the irrigation industry since 1933. We’re devoted to making your watering system smarter and more efficient. For more than 20 years, Rain Bird weather-based central control systems have used weather data and ET to automate irrigation control. Continuing the pioneering tradition of offering only the highest quality and most reliable solutions, the ET Manager now brings weather-based control to everyone.

4 EASY STEPS - for specifying an ET Manager
  1. Products and Accessories
    There are two product choices in the ET Manager family:
    • The ET Manager Cartridge for the ESP-LX Modular controller (model ETM-LXM). This powerful tool integrates with the ESP-LX Modular controller making it an ideal choice for new installations.
    • The ET Manager (model ETMi). This model works great if you need to automate water management for any standard existing controller.
  2. Select the ET source
    The ET Manager can use one of two different ET sources:
    • Real-time weather
    • Historical ET
  3. Select the Rain source
    • The ET Manager uses a rain measurement as part of the process to determine
      watering needs. The ET Manager can use one of three different rain sources:
      • ET Weather Station Signal. Rainfall measurements at the regional ET
        Weather Station are included with the weather signal.
      • On-site Tipping Rain Gauge (model ETM-RG). Provides a more localized
        measurement, wired to the ET Manager.
      • Rain Station. The Signal Provider can access a Rain Station and broadcast
        the rainfall amount. Installing a Rain Station allows multiple ET Managers
        access to a localized measurement from a single rain gauge.

For best results the ET Manager needs real-time weather from the Weather Reach Signal. There are many existing Signal Providers across the country. To check for Weather Reach Signal Service in your area go to www.rainbird.com/wrsp. Some offer the signal as a public service while others provide the signal with an annual
subscription. If service is not available, there are several options for new signal service.

If service is not available or you are waiting for signal service, the ET Manager will operate effectively on Historical ET. Performance is enhanced with an on-site rain gauge.

How it works!
ET Manager - How it works! Steps 1-3

1. Local weather stations monitor and collect real-time weather data.

2. Signal providers retrieve weather station data automatically via Weather Reach software and a data connection.

3. Each hour, a wireless paging system broadcasts weather data wirelessly to local ET Managers.
ET Manager - How it works! Steps 4-6

4. The ET Manager (ETMi) receives weather data and uses calculated information to determine how much moisture has left the landscape and how much moisture is needed.

5. Compatible with virtually any irrigation controller, the ETMi simply bridges between the controller and irrigation zones (valves) via the common wire.

6. The ETMi allows the controller to distribute water to the irrigation zones when the moisture balance reaches user-set levels. The result, a beautiful, healthy landscape that is nearly maintenance free.
