Hunter 458200 Battery Operated DC Latching Solenoid

  • DC latching Solenoid
  • Fits all platic Hunter Valves
  • Only used on valves with the SVC or WVS battery operated systems

Features & Benefits

The Hunter 458200 is the DC Latching Solenoid for Hunter valves. These solenoids are only used on valves with the SVC or WVS battery operated systems. The Battery operated SVC and WVS systems use DC instead of AC electrical supply. These DC solenoids replace the AC solenoids that come standard on a Hunter valve. Designed to fit all Hunter Plastic Valves.

A battery-operated controller sends a quick DC pulse to operate the solenoid, therefore the battery-operated controller requires a DC latching solenoid to operate correctly. Also, the DC latching solenoid will have one black wire for the common wire and one red wire for the station wire. It is important that the wires are connected correctly for proper operation. Black connected to the C or COM (common) terminal inside the controller, and the red wire connected to the appropriate station terminal.

Latching Solenoids for Battery Powered Controller
Switched out the solenoids (2) on the Hunter 1 1/2" valves and that solved the problem of using a battery powered timer/controller in the pasture.

Something that works
Last year when I was researching DC controllers I never saw any obvious literature that said that latching solenoids had to match the manufacturer of the controller. I learned the hard way. These things are used with my DC Hunter controller.

DC Latching Solenoid is a winner
I switched out about 140 ac solenoids for dc latching solenoids. Out of the 140 I have only had 2 fail over the past 3 years. I have about 140 of the ac on hand never used.

Great product with clarification
It is important to understand you can only use the 458200 solenoids with the Hunter Node battery-operated controller even though the valves are interchangeable the solenoids must be 458200 for the controller otherwise you may end up returning items iin frustration. Not clear on the Hunter Node websites or videos

I am buying a Hunter NODE-4 in order to add some additional zones with out dealing with the pulling wire to the new site. I also have Hunter Sprinkler 458200 DC Latching Solenoid for NODE Controllers in the order, one per new zone. What valves should I buy to work with this setup?
Richard B on Apr 11, 2016
Is this a heavy duty solinoid?
Ezra K on Jul 18, 2011
BEST ANSWER: It doesn't have the look or feel of a heavy duty solenoid but it has performed great for us out in the field. We have two in use right now(1st one-5yrs. 2cnd one-1 1/2yrs.) and so far no problems.
on Battery Operated DC Latching Solenoid will it work on 9 volt battery? Is there a tech Manual on it's operation?
Manuel Z on May 15, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The 458200 works with the SVC controller also by Hunter. The SVC uses a
9v alkaline battery.

There does not appear to be a technical manual nor any electrical specifications available online. In one of the online papers on irrigation
(F.R. Miranda, R.E. Yoder, J.B. Wilkerson, L.O. Odhiambo) they reference the Rain Bird solenoid as requiring pulses of 100msec at 12v and Hunter claims that the SVC controller is capable of using the Rain Bird solenoid. In summary what I have seen on the web suggests that 50 to 100 msec pulses at 9v with the correct polarity should be sufficient for proper operation.

The preceeding information has yet to be field tested and should be taken as only slightly better than gossip.
I am looking for a Hunter 24vac 50-60hz (heavy duty).Will this solenoid work in it's place?
A shopper on Jul 25, 2012
BEST ANSWER: To answer your question directly. I don't know if it will work . I don't know what you're replacing. What I can tell you is that I recently bought one of these to replace the existing one I had on a 12 year old sprinkler system, but when I went to replace it I noticed the excess dirt around it and cleaned the existing 12 year old solenoid. It seems it wasn't closing properly. So once cleaned, the old solenoid worked fine and now I have a spare. I don't know how the new solenoids work yet, but the old ones are going strong after a dozen years! I'd recommend them for sure!
What is the voltage, inrush current and holding current for this solenoid?
A shopper on Apr 12, 2013
Does the solenoid itself need a battery?
A shopper on Feb 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No, the solenoid does not need a battery.

You need to have a battery operated controller which is separate from the valve. The battery operated dc latching solenoid is inserted (or screwed into) the valve. The wires of the solenoid are connected to the wires of the battery operated controller with waterproof wire nut connectors.
Will this work with the Node Timer?
A shopper on Mar 21, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Node requires this solenoid, it is DC powered and therefore the AC solenoid that comes with Hunter valves will not work for the Node. So to answer your question, YES, it works with the Node timer.
Where is the battery? I need to replace it but I don´t find it.
A shopper on Nov 29, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The battery is in the control unit - there is no battery in the solenoid. The power to open and shut the solenoid is derived from the battery in the control unit. If you are using a Hunter Node-200, Node-400 or Node-600 to control the solenoids, the 9 volt battery (or batteries, if you install 2) are in the back of the unit. Follow the directions with the control unit to twist open the back of the unit and access the batteries.
Will the Hunter solenoids work on a Lawn Genie valve?
Reid S on Aug 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I don't think so. These solenoids are designed to operate on a specific type of valve and may not provide enough motion to reduce the pressure enough to open the valve. I suggest to use Hunter valves anyway, they are much more reliable and easier to service in the field.
will this solenoid screw into a circa 1990 richdel contro valve?
Connie & on Sep 8, 2012
BEST ANSWER: I really can't answer because I don't know the thread size of that richdel control valve. I suppose if it fits tight and doesn't leak it might work. I bought the corresponding Hunter control valve and replaced the AC solenoid with the DC latching solenoid and it works great on a pair of AA batteries on the wireless controller.
What is the maximum distance between this solenoid and its controller?
A shopper on Apr 29, 2012
BEST ANSWER: The online owner's manual for the controller I bought, the Hunter XCH600 Hybrid controller, has a chart on page three that shows the distance from the controller to the valves ranging from 550 feet for 18 AWG wire to 2200 feet for 12 AWG wire. The chart does not specify whether these distances are for battery operation or AC operation.

My own experience will probably not help you much. I run the controller on batteries. The farthest valve is only about four feet from the controller, which is in the ground next to a couple of other valves.

I hope this info helps you.
How do you change the wiring to go in the timer?
A shopper on Apr 6, 2011
BEST ANSWER: We were changing out all of our RainBird valves with Hunter valves. Our system uses RainBird TBOS (battery powered) controllers. We simply ran the red wire to the station hook up on the controller and the black wire to the Common ground. When there were two or more valves on the controller, we ran the red wire to each station hook up and the black wires were gathered and connected to the Common ground. I use the "C" in common because the RainBird TBOS controller has a capital C marked on the case. If you use this controller, the multiple station controller has two "C"s either or both of which can be used.
I'm replacing the solenoid originally installed 12 years ago. It's a Hunter Heavy duty solenoid 24 vac 50 - 60 hz. It has on and off arrows and it says manual. I do not think this is a replacement for the said solenoid. Please advise and/or tell me the proper replacement solenoid?

A shopper on Oct 28, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Most of the Solenoid's are 24Vac and require very low current (<100mA) AC voltage. The Solenoid (valve) remains open as long as the timer supplies 24Vac to that station. Once the voltage to that station is turned off, the valve closes.

Battery operated DC LATCHING SOLENOIDS are special case solenoids that operate on low current (< 100mA) DC voltages. Since the solenoid is a "latching" type, you would provide a DC "Pulse" to open the valve, and another DC "pulse" to close the valve. I believe the pulse width is <= 2ms. So if you were to provide a 12VDC @100mA signal for 2ms the valve will open, one more 12VDC @100mA signal for 2ms and the valve will close. If you connect a DC latching solenoid on an AC source, I imagine the valve might try to open and close at the rate of 60 times per second for as long as that AC controlled station says the water is supose to be on. I doubt you would ever want to do this and I doubt the solenoid would survive very long if it works at all. In addition, 24 volts would drive the solenoid too hard and ruin the valve. Again, if this would even work at all.

You want to replace your original 24Vac solenoid with a 24Vac solenoid. You NEVER want to try to replace an AC solenoid with a DC type solenoid and you would NEVER want to try to replace a DC type solenoid with an AC type solenoid..

I'm surprised you even have a DC Latching solenoid since these are usually considered special order items for DC watering systems which I think might be commercial systems.

In Arizona, we have such hard water, that we usually have to replace the entire VALVE every year because the valve eventually will not close all the way because of all the calcium build up. All my valves use couplers so that changing a valve is as painless as possible.
Where is the spec of this kind of device ?
A shopper on Jun 21, 2012
BEST ANSWER: While I don’t know of any specs for the valve Hunter valve other than being DC/Latching, in the SVC-100 manual (from the Hunter Industries site) it shows that the following solenoids can be used, so they should have roughly the same specs. I have seen several comments where owners were switching out their Rain Bird units for the Hunter. I'm getting a little more than 1 season out of the battery, the unit is switching 2 valves on and off 8 times a week.

SVC-100 manual: Baccara G75-0-1002
Bermad S392-2
Nelson 8090
Specs I found for the Rain Bird: 150 psi maximum operating pressure
• Solenoid Dimensions:
o Width: 1 3/8" (4,0 cm)
o Height: 2 3/8" (6,0 cm)
o Depth: 1 1/2" (4,2 cm)
will this DC solenoid work on other bands of valves i.e. rainbird?
d b on Jun 7, 2012
BEST ANSWER: I don't know. I would be very surprised if they did. Frankly, I would be surprised if they even fit into another brand of valve, I took the straight line solution - I replaced my other brand valves with Hunter valves, so I knew the valve and solenoid would work together.
What's the voltage needed to work a DC Latching solenoid?
A shopper on Feb 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The battery operated controllers we have installed require one 9 volt battery and we have ran 4 dc latching solenoids. Sorry I don't have a more detailed answer.

Hunter Battery Operated DC Latching Solenoid | 458200
do you have adaptor for 458200 latching adaptor?
Kirti P on Oct 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: A latching solenoid converts a standard valve from needing a constant voltage to stay on to needing only a pulse of voltage to "latch" on and will stay on until it receives another pulse to turn off. This uses very little power making battery operated controllers possible.
For use only with valve controllers designed for latching solenoids such as Hunter NODE-100 single station controller
I want to know that, how much energy do this structure use to open or close and how many times does it works with 9V battery? Also this structure what is the transition second and current? Can ? use ?t for all solenoid hunter valves ? Thank you
Gizem on Apr 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: It is only to be used with battery operated controllers. It is only energized for a second. It latches in the opened position until the control sends the signal to close. That is also just a second to release it. One season is three months long, and this could probably open and close the valve everyday for three months before you have to change the battery on the controller. The controller is something like a pod or traditional style controller that is battery operated. You use these where there is no conventional source of electricity to power the controller.
Has anyone found the specifications for this solenoid? Voltage, current and pulse duration?
PAUL H on Dec 30, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hunter has pdf's for everything. If not on SW's website, just search for the product online and it will come up. Everything you need to know is there.
what is the maxium pressure at the valve ?
Rob T on Oct 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: That is an unusual question, but I have been in the business for 18 years, so here you go. Excluding a multitude of variables, hydraulic calculations, and special circumstances there should not be more than 40 psi at the valve (30 min-50 Max) Any more pressure, and a pressure reducer is highly recommended.
Hunter solenoid PAT 5979482 No 6086042 no other markings - I need 2 - it was used on Lawn Genie ?
A shopper on Sep 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It will not work with lawn genie valves only hunter valves and you will need a DC controller as well such as the node, or a Bluetooth k rain stand alone DC
how this valve internally?
Filiberto C on Jan 10, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Not sure I understand this question considering it seems to be something about the internal parts of a "valve" but the question seemed to have been posed about a Hunter DC latching solenoid, not a valve.

The product "Hunter 458200 Battery Operated DC Latching Solenoid" is just the solenoid and not a valve. This part just allows a battery operated (dc) controller or timer to communicate electronically with the valve, opening and closing it as programmed. Usually, hardwired controllers use ac, or alternating, currents while battery powered controllers use dc, or direct, currents.

For assistance on internal parts and quality of valves I would suggest researching the website of the manufacturer you are interested in. Search for parts breakdowns, parts lists, etc. Toro, Hunter, and Rainbird all provide detailed scaled drawings and parts break downs for all of their current valves and other irrigation products. These can be found in .pdf form on their respective websites. They will help in showing you how the valves can be taken apart and put back together as well as the manufacturer part numbers for things you may need to replace like diaphragms, various other seals, solenoids, etc.

I hope this helps.
