Rain Bird ESP-9V 2 Station Battery Operated Controller
Power Source: Battery Operated
Features & Benefits
Tougher, Easier and Longer Lasting Get reliable automatic irrigation control when you dont have AC power with the ESP-9V Series Battery-Operated Controller.
Installs Anywhere. Even Underwater. The ESP-9Vs waterproof case and dual-sealed battery chamber ensure long life even when installed in a wet, muddy valve box. In harsh environment testing the ESP-9V outlasted the competition by 70%. After being submerged in water at alternating extreme hot and cold temperatures the ESP-9V was still going strong after the competition failed in less than two days.
Easier to Program Common programming features are easily accessed on one screen, making programming quick and easy. The LCD screen is 85% larger than the Hunter® Node and the programming icons are big and easy to understand. Manual watering is easy with a dedicated button.
Longer Lasting The ESP-9V operates for one year using one 9-volt alkaline battery, or more than two years with two 9-volt alkaline batteries.
Waterproof case ensures long life even when installed in a valve box
Dual-sealed battery chamber with rubber insert and O-ring keeps water out
IP68 certified for protection against dust and water intrusion
Large LCD display (85% larger than Hunter® Node) with easy-to-navigate user interface
Non-volatile (100-year) program memory keeps your schedule safe even if batteries are dead
Mounts in valve box using solenoid mounting bracket, using two screws affixed to the valve box or on a wall using the optional wall-mount kit
The plastic controller case has outstanding resistance to weather, yellowing and aging
Sensor input with bypass override
Master valve/pump-start circuit (multi-zone units only)
Rain sensor bypass for all zones
Controller operates with one or two 9-volt alkaline batteries
Common programming features are easily accessed on one screen, making programming quick and easy
At-a-glance programming eliminates confusion by showing the run time, start times and watering days for each zone
Automatic zone stacking ensures that only one valve irrigates at a time. If zones are scheduled to water at the same time, the ESP-9V will automatically irrigate the lower number zone first.
Dedicated manual watering button for easy manual watering
Manually water all zones or a single zone on demand
One-touch manual start allows you to start a full programmed irrigation cycle with the touch of a button
Contractor Rapid Programming automatically copies the start times and watering days from zone 1 to all remaining zones at initial setup
Run times, start times and watering days are customizable by zone
Contractor Default allows user to save and restore the irrigation schedule
Operates for one year using one 9-volt alkaline battery or more than two years with two 9-volt alkaline batteries
