The Pro-C has proven to be the most reliable and robust controller in the industry, with the flexibility to expand on demand due to its modular design. When expansion isn't necessary, the fixed 6 and 12 station models offer affordability in a high-end residential controller. Now, the Pro-C will easily accommodate Hunter's Solar Sync without additional wiring. The new Solar Sync dial position makes it easy to upgrade and program any Pro-C to smart control. The Hunter Solar Sync is an EPA WaterSense labeled smart device which calculates evapotranspiration (ET) and adjusts Hunter controllers daily based on local weather conditions, resulting in water savings and conservation. The Pro-C and all AC powered Hunter controllers are now EPA WaterSense labeled when paired with the Solar Sync weather sensor.
WATERSENSE® SMART WATERING CONTROLLER BY ADDING SOLAR SYNC
By adding a Solar Sync to your Hunter controller, it transforms into a smart controller using local weather conditions to tailor watering schedules to actual conditions on the site. A Hunter controller with Solar Sync has been independently proven to have a detailed list of water saving features and has been approved by the EPA as a WaterSense Smart Watering Controller.

EASY RETRIEVE MEMORY
A manual back-up utility that stores complete controller scheduling and setup information in back-up memory. This allows the saved watering schedule to be restored at any time. This can be used to set a controller back to its initial settings after tampering or at the beginning of a new season.
AUTOMATIC SHORT CIRCUIT PROTECTION
Automatic short circuit protection is a feature found in all Hunter AC powered controllers. This feature automatically detects electrical faults, which are typically caused by wiring issues. Only affected stations are skipped, allowing all other stations to water normally as programmed. There are no fuses to blow or internal circuit breakers to trip, so complete irrigation system shutdown is avoided.
The QuickCheck feature makes field wiring issues easy to assess with the push of a button. QuickCheck displays an ERR message when a field wiring short is detected on a particular station number.
SEASONAL ADJUSTMENT: GLOBAL OR AUTOMATIC UPDATES WITH SOLAR SYNC
This feature allows for quick adjustments to irrigation run times through a percentage scale. During peak season, set the seasonal adjustment to 100%. If weather conditions require less water, enter the appropriate percentage value (i.e. 50%) to cut down irrigation run times without the need to adjust each station in the program. This model offers two different ways to use Seasonal Adjustment to reduce water usage: Global and Daily.
Global: The Global option provides a Seasonal Adjustment percentage to all station Run Times on all of the controller's Programs.
Daily: With the addition of a Solar Sync ET Sensor, the controller has the ability to automatically implement daily adjustments based on measured local weather.
DELAY BETWEEN STATIONS
Users can program a delay between stations as the controller advances from one station to the next. This delay can range from a few seconds (to permit slow-closing valves additional time to close) to a much longer period of time (to allow pressure tanks time to recharge), based on user requirements.
The ability to specify which program will be shut down in response to a specific sensor alarm. This allows programs unaffected by the sensor to continue automatic operations.
Day(s) of the week can be programmed OFF in advance, so that irrigation does not occur regardless of program interval schedules. For example, if the gardener mows the lawn on Saturday, the Non-Water Days feature allows Saturday to be programmed OFF, so that watering will not occur.
The Pro-C series controller hosts a variety of advanced features including easy retrieve memory, automatic short circuit protection, quick check feature, seasonal adjustments, and more. Each of these features enhances the capabilities of the trusted Hunter controller. The easy receive memory feature is a manual backup that stores the timer's scheduling and setup information. This saves time and effort in the event that the data gets lost but needs to be retrieved quickly. Learn more about these features at Sprinkler Warehouse's PCC1200i product page.
The hidden features include program customization, the programmable delay between stations, programmable sensor override, a total run time calculator, easy retrieve program memory feature, a cycle and soak option, and many more. These hidden features are designed to make the user experience easier when operating the Pro-C series controllers. For details about these features as well as how they work and can be operated, please see pages 29 to 35 of the Pro-C controller manual located in the "owners manual" tab on the PCC1200i product page.
The Solar Sync is a sensor input that will automatically adjust the timer watering based on changes in the area's weather conditions. This feature measures the local weather conditions to determine the evaporation rate that landscapes use water. The Solar Sync also includes the Rain-Clik and Freeze-Clik sensors that operate by shutting down the sprinkler system in the event of rain or during freezing conditions. To use this feature the user simply needs to program the controller as normal and the Solar Sync will automatically adjust the watering schedule with considerations for the local climate.
The PCC-12 controller can be used to control an outdoor lighting system by creating a lighting program within the controller. This system can be enabled when combined with the PXSync interface box. Setting up this system is easy, simply connect the wire from the PXSync box to station output 1 on the Pro-C terminal. The Pro-C series is compatible with rain and freeze sensors which can be purchased separately at Sprinkler Warehouse.
The PCC 12 station indoor controller, also known as the PCC1200i is a fixed version of the Pro-C modular controller. This model consists of 12 stations and cannot be expanded with the use of additional expansion modules. Sprinkler Warehouse does sell the base modular version of the controller which includes a 4 station module and can be expanded with the use of the PCM-300 and PCM-900 expansion modules.

The Pro-C controller series is compatible with the ROAM and ROAM XL remotes. Hunter remotes include a SmartPort wiring harness that allows for quick and easy control of the Hunter timers. These remotes are preferred because they allow the user to operate their irrigation system without having to walk back to the controller. For more information about how to connect a remote to your Pro-C controller, please see pages 16 and 17 of the Pro-C controller manual, located under the "owner's manual"tab on the PCC1200i product page.
