This entry-level residential controller offers simple operation with Solar Sync compatibility. With easy-to-configure control for up to 8 stations, including 3 programs and 4 start times each, the X-Core is the perfect solution for residential applications. Install the revolutionary Solar Sync ET sensor that regulates irrigation run times daily based on locally measured weather. X-Core is also compatible with Hunter remotes for quick, wireless activation of irrigation. Installation, operation, and maintenance are designed to be simple while still delivering optimal efficiency and reliabilit
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.
Programmable Rain Delay
The Programmable Rain Delay feature incorporates a user specified number of days to keep the controller in the OFF mode, then allows for the system to automatically revert back to scheduled irrigation. This will prevent watering during an extended period of inclement weather, but will resume watering automatically without requiring a return visit to the controller. The controller displays the number of days remaining before watering resumes.
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 offers protection against unreliable power, retaining current time, date, and program data.
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.
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.
The Hunter X-Core series controller is an entry-level timer that offers easy-to-use operation and weather sensor compatibility. These timers are available in 2, 4,6, or 8 stations that are not expandable. The XC-600i is a 6 station indoor version of these remarkable irrigation controllers. For more information about these durable controllers check out Sprinkler Warehouse's irrigation tutorial videos and articles.
The X-Core controller is compatible with a variety of weather sensors including the Solar-Sync, Rain-Clik, Freeze-Clik, and Wind-Clik. These sensors are available in wired and wireless options on the Sprinkler Warehouse website and in-store. These sensors are designed to interrupt automatic watering programs in the event that local weather conditions require it. For example, if the rain sensor indicates heavy rainfall, it will automatically override the pre-programmed instructions.
Control your irrigation system from a distance with the compatible ROAM and ROAM XL remotes. The standard ROAM remote allows the user to operate their controller from a distance up to 1,000 feet while the ROAM XL allows for a distance up to 2 miles. Each of these remotes requires that the user is in the line of sight to the controller but does not require them to be any closer than the indicated distances.
Like many of the Hunter controller series, the X-Core 6 station controller comes equipped with a variety of top-quality features that are favored by homeowners. This entry-level controller includes easy to retrieve memory technology, programmable rain delay, automatic short circuit protection, and seasonal adjustment options. Each of these advanced features is included to make programming and general irrigation operation easier for our customers.
The X-Core series is available in 2, 4, 6, and 8 station fixed models. This means that these controllers are not modular and cannot be expanded with the addition of any expansion modules. If these stations are not preferred for your project, Sprinkler Warehouse recommends the Pro-C expandable controller, the PC-400 or PC-400i. These controllers include a base module of 4 stations and can be expanded with the additional purchase of the PCM-300 and PCM-900 expansion modules.
The X-Core series controller is compatible with the ROAM and ROAM XL remotes. Each of these remotes can be purchased separately at Sprinkler Warehouse's online irrigation store. The ROAM remote allows the user to operate their X-Core controller from a distance up to 1000 feet while the ROAM XL allows for operation up to 2 miles.
Unlike the Hunter X2, HC, Pro-HC and HPC controllers, the X-Core series does not support Hydrawise technology. For basic control and simple station numbering, the X-Core series is the solution. This controller has reliable features including seasonal adjustments, cycle and soak options, delay between stations and many more.
