Hunter NODE-200 Two Station Battery Operated Node Controller

  • Hunter NODE (DC) Battery Operated Controller (NODE-200)
  • 2 Stations
  • Valve Mounted Controller

Features & Benefits

For isolated zones, power-restricted areas, the Hunter Node is the smart, reliable solution. The Node mounts to a valve solenoid quickly and easily, and without screws, drills or additional wires. The unit's solid construction and waterproof exterior ensure it can handle the harsh environment of a valve box. Once placed in a valve box, the Node is operated by one or two 9V batteries, which provide standard or extended power throughout the season. Along with exceptional reliability, the Node features an easy-to-program LCD screen, the ability to control a Master Valve, and uses standard Hunter controller programming with 3 programs and 4 start times per program. The array of programming options and rugged reliability make the Node a compact, but powerful irrigation controller with the flexibility of battery power.

Single or Double 9V Battery Life with Constant Readout

When it comes to battery-powered controllers, there are generally two common issues that inevitably arise. The first is that one 9V battery may not last through a season. The second is that it is difficult to know how much battery life a unit has left without laborious tracking. The Node solves both of these problems with two smart innovations: The option to add a second 9V battery for extended power, and a battery life-status indicator on the LCD display. With battery life guaranteed to last through an entire season and a constant power-level readout, the need for in-season replacement becomes eliminated, and allows operators to install a new battery only when it is absolutely necessary. For maintenance-free operation year-round, the optional Solar Panel can be added to Node quickly and easily.

The NODE is fully submersible and resists all moisture intrusion in water, mud, and debris as deep as 12 feet.

The Choice for New Installations or Retrofits

The Hunter Node is an easy addition to an existing system or the ideal choice for an entirely new one. For that extra zone you have that's not wired to your present controller, simply purchase a NODE-100 and attach it to the valve quickly and easily. Or, if you're installing irrigation for the first time in an area that has no direct power access, simply order the Node factory-installed on a PGV 1 in. flow control valve.

Troubleshooting Guide

There is no display.

1. Display is off.
2. Battery is dead.

Press any button for 1 second.
Replace the battery.

Display indicates watering but none is occurring.

1. No water pressure.
2. Faulty solenoid.
3. Incompatible solenoid.

Turn on main system supply.
Replace solenoid.
Must use Hunter DC Latching Solenoid (P/N 458200) or other compatible DC latching solenoid.

Automatic irrigation does not start at start time.

1. Controller in System Off mode.
2. Am/Pm of time of day not set correctly.
3. AM/PM of start time not set correctly.

Verify that controller is programmed for automatic watering.
Correct AM/PM of time of day.
Correct AM/PM of start time.

Rain sensor does not suspend watering.

1. Rain sensor defective.
2. Rain sensor is miswired.

Verify proper operation of the rain sensor and wire connections (see page 10 of the Node Manual located in "Owner's Manuals" Tab)

Controller waters more than one time.

1. The program has more than 1 start time assigned to it.
2. Each program has up to 4 start times.

Eliminate program start times as needed.

Frequently Asked Questions About The Hunter NODE 2 Station Controller

What do I do if the rain sensor for the NODE-200 is working at the start time?

The cause for this problem is either that the controller system is accidentally turned off or the AM/PM start and end times are programmed incorrectly. To fix these problems first confirm that the controller has been programmed to the automatic watering setting. Once this is done, check the program start and end times and ensure that the AM/PM settings are adjusted properly.

How do I fix the NODE-200 when the display indicates watering but the sprinklers are not working?

If the controller indicates operation but it is not working properly then there could be a lack of water pressure, a faulty solenoid on one of the valves, or the wrong solenoid has been installed. To fix these problems start by turning on the main sprinkler system supply, then try replacing the solenoid that is suspected to be faulty, and be sure that a compatible Hunter DC latching solenoid has been properly installed.

How do I fix the NODE-200 when the display is not showing?

If the display is not working on the installed NODE-200 controller it means that the display is off or that the batteries are dead. To ensure that the display is turned on simply press any button on the face of the controller for approximately 1 second. If that does not work then replace the batteries or add batteries. This controller requires the use of two 9 volt batteries.
