Hunter PCC1200 12 Zone Outdoor Sprinkler Timer with Internal Transformer

  • Hunter PCC Indoor/Outdoor Controller
  • 12 Stations (Fixed)
  • Standard Controller

Features & Benefits

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.

  • Flexible design: Modular model offers 4 - 16 stations, or choose fixed 6 or 12 station models
  • Enclosures: indoor and outdoor plastic
  • Independent programs: 3
  • Start times per program: 4
  • Max. station run time: 6 hours
  • Solar Sync dial position: now available with built-in Solar Sync programming for increased installation efficiency
  • Solar Sync delay feature: allows adjustments to be postponed for up to 99 days
  • Cycle and Soak feature built in: reduces runoff
  • Lighting programs built in: allows the ability to add landscape lighting control
  • Added knockouts offer additional flexibility
  • Programmable rain delay: prevents watering for an extended period as needed
  • Non-volatile memory: keeps programs indefinitely without battery backup
  • Rain sensor bypass: allows the controller to ignore sensor devices when needed
  • One touch manual start and advance: allows user to start or test any station
  • Warranty period: 2 years

Advanced Features


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. Click here to learn more about Smart Controllers


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 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.


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.


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.

Nice controller
I replaced my 22-year-old Toro controller after seeing my Son in law’s Hunter. The Hunter is really easy to use. We use the interval watering schedule. The model also makes it easy to manually test zones.

Works great!
Replaced the 15 year old controller of the same make and model. The local company that installed my system wanted $400

Does this unit come with a power cord?
A shopper on Apr 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: 95% sure it does not. Nearly all commercial type timers require direct wiring with 120 to the transformer. Should be wired through a GFCI circuit as well. May require electrician or qualified individual - and don't forget to disconnect power to control panel while completing this process to protect the low voltage electronics.
hello., I am planning to buy this 12 zone out door sprinkler timer. What is different between indoor and out door timers. Can i install out door timer in the garage?

please advice me

balaks on Jun 3, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The indoor unit is neither water nor weather resistant hence it's a few dollars cheaper. Installing an outdoor unit in a garage is the best protection. You may want to consider buying the remote control so you can test/change zones from outside so you don't have to run back and forth to do manual changes on the controller. It saves a lot of time. The cost for the Hunter Roam kit for the Pro C controller is approx. $135 and has an operating range of about 1,000 feet, far enough to cover most residential lot sizes. Im guessing the range may be somewhat less if the controller is inside the garage, versus outside. Good luck with your installation..
Does this have a pump start?
A shopper on Jun 16, 2012
BEST ANSWER: It does have a pump start... We live on 10 acres of which about 2-3 acres are irrigated using water pumped (3/4 hp Franklin submersible pump) from a seasonal irrigation ditch. I installed this product last year to control one section of our land and it has performed flawlessly since. HTH
A shopper on Apr 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Hunter PCC has a built in transformer which coverts 110 VAC to 24 VAC. You hardwire the leads from to transformer to a 110 VAC source.

The related sprinkler system electrical specifications are as follows:

Transformer input: 120 VAC or 230 VAC (international model)
Transformer output (24 VAC): 1 A
Station output (24 VAC): 0.56 A
P/MV output (24 VAC): 0.56 A
does this product come with a key to lock it?
A shopper on Jun 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No the indoor controller does not
Can you set the Hunter Pcc1200 to delay for a minute or two between stations?
A shopper on Jun 27, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Yes, but you have to create a program A and a program B and split 6 stations on each program, for example on program A odd numbers and program B even numbers set your start 6pm for 13 min on station 1 move to program B and set station 2 @615 and so on set ur time with 13 min each to make it easier on time clock this will give you the couple minutes delay that you need.
I follow instructions for single station manual operation and get the flashing icon indicating the station is watering, but I get no water. I tried on three separate stations, same result. What am I doing wrong?
Lief E on Jun 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: If the zones will run under a programmed mode and you are sure that the wiring is correct you either have a faulty unit or you are doing something outside of the instructed directions but as you said it shows that it is watering so my guess is a wiring problem at the valve itself. Do the zones turn on when programmed and left to turn on at a specific time?
please define indoor vs. outdoor - is it just the mounting location or does it have something to do with the sprinkler system?
A shopper on Jul 4, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The timer with an internal transformer is suitable to be mounted outdoors, it is designed to be weatherproof. The timer with a plugin transformer is more suited for indoor mounting. I am not aware of any other differences.
Does this Controller have a Remote Port?
Bill C on Mar 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Bill, this controller does not support remote control. It does support booster pump control and rain sensor.
This is one of the most reliable controllers I have used. I install 10 a year with no failures.
Easiest to program.
Hope that helps

can it work with ICV-151 1.5" hunter valves ? AC solenoid
Does it contain internal transformer?
Amazon on Nov 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This timer should and does work with any 24 volt AC solenoid on any type of valve. It has an internal transformer for outdoor installation.
Does the Hunter PCC1200 come with enough modules to manage 12 zones, or do I need to purchase additional modules?
Carleton B on Sep 11, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Yes it has 12 zones to use for watering. I am only using 11 and the 12 one is empty.
will the Hunter PCC1200 12 Zone system replace my by Richdel 500 Series (512 model)? Will it work with existing valves?

Chuck W on Jul 23, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Most valves have 2 wires, a common and designated wire for the vlalve. At the controler, all common wires hook up to one connector and the second wire hooks up to the number to control that valve. As long as your current configuration is the same, it shoul work withou a problem.
After a complete cycle thru all stations why does it begin again on station 1?
A shopper on Jul 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: More than likly you have more than one start time entered be sure that the start time on one is at your the time you want it to run then 2,3,4 are in the off mode
DJ I on Jun 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: leads are about 4 feet. I guess you can mount to a pole. You would have to mount a flat surface to have something to screw the box to. I put mine in enclosed boxes. I like to have the added protection. If the controller gets exposed the digital lettering gets hard to read and makes it hard to program. For the money I have had great results. I have used probably 15-20 of them.
will this hunter PCC1200 be a good replacement for our irritrol rd1200?
Jim S on Aug 4, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the PCC1200 should be a good replacement if you are looking for a 12 zone controler. It is easy to set up. The only negitive, it seem a little susceptible to lighting strikes in the area.
Is it prepared to work with European 220v ?
A shopper on Sep 19, 2011
BEST ANSWER: The transformer that comes with iinternally is equiped for American 120v.
I am sure that you can order one from the manufacturer to fit the 220v.
I have never used a European one.
Does this Hunter PCC1200 require modules to make it a 12 station clock?
Pete G on Aug 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: All 12 stations are built into the controller.
I have this controller with 8 zones. In manual mode, sometimes it goes from 8 back to 1-not off. Why?
John R on Aug 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: There are 2 manual modes. "One-Touch Manual Start & Station Advance" which does all stations in the zone you select (I believe if you begin in the middle of a zone the controller will continue to cycle stations from the beginning until it reaches your starting station), and the "Manual Operating A Single Station" mode which will do the 1 station you select ONLY then quit.
The description talks about fixed 12 station timers, but i don't see any listed in the Hunter controller section. Also no reference to PC 3 station expansion modules to increase from 3 stations to more stations. Where are the fixed station timers, or the expansion modules?

What flow sensor and master valve work with this controller?
lisa h on Mar 15, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Sorry, i did not use a flow sensor. I would say your best bet would be a Hunter Flow Sensor, I have been using Hunter valves since 1989 and I have only had a one problem with a valve in all that time.
Due to a severe water shortage in North Texas, my town has instituted one watering every two weeks. I travel for several months at a time, and am looking for a controller that has a 2-week program. A 31-day program is not sufficient as I can be away for two months. Can this controller fill my needs? If not, please suggest a model that can.

Another way to accomplish the same thing would be with a controller that is internet-programable. Is there a model with this feature on the market?

A shopper on Dec 19, 2011
BEST ANSWER: Yes, this timer has an interval timer program setting which allows for this kind of schedule.
I like the remote control concept. Is the SOLAR add-on using a smart phone a better way to go than the ROAM add-on?
A shopper on Oct 22, 2018
I have been using the Hunter ROAM-XL with the Pro-C controller for 2 yrs. Yesterday, the Pro-C started responding to the remote's commands with "Err" on the Pro-C readout, and will not turn on the zone. The zones can still be turned on manually at the Pro-C. Same problem for all 12 zones. I already did a factory reset on the Pro-C, same result. Any suggestions on how to fix?

do you have one PCC 1200 in stock ?
kenneth h b on Apr 19, 2016
Call from help from Australia.
I cannot get the system to advance beyond station four.
Fairly confident I have followed the instructions, so here goes with the dump question.
When programming the start times for each program, should not the system scroll through all 12 stations.
My controller only scrolls 1-4 for each of the programmes.
Probably doping something wrong.
