Finally, a battery-powered, waterproof controller that programs just like its A.C. counterpart!
Introducing the DDCWP Series, Toro's waterproof version of the popular DDC controller series. Using latching solenoids and battery-power, the DDCWP is 100% waterproof to IP68 standards, making it ideal for mounting in valve boxes or outside.
Available in 2, 4, 6, or 8-station models, the DDCWP waterproof controller features an exclusive, patent-pending virtual dial interface that guides a user through simple programming functions. A convenient mounting bracket and waterproof connectors are included with each model.
Fully waterproof and submersible to 2m (6'), per IP68 standard
Convenient mounting bracket included for easy installation in valve boxes or other tight spaces
Compatible with wired rain sensor
Waterproof connectors included for all stations, master valve and optional sensor
2 x 9V alkaline batteries provide sufficient power to last entire irrigation season; (program retention completely independent using internal coin battery)
Low battery indicator visible in LCD screen
Unique power feature verifies sufficient voltage level for turning stations off before turning any stations on
Toro exclusive "digital dial" technology simulates the simplicity of a mechanical dial
Large LCD display
3 independent, stacking programs, easily identified within "digital dial" interface
3 Start Times per Program
1 to 240 minute run times
Multiple watering days options
365 day calendar
7 day calendar, 14 day interval

AM/PM or 24-hour time option
True manual and manual program start
Built-in Rain delay
Programmable Master Valve
Convenient program review feature
Easy to read faceplate in English and symbols (multi-language overlays on A.C. models)
5 Year program retention, with on board coin battery
Default program if loss of power occurs
Conforms to electromagnetic compatibility directives (CEE, FCC and C-Tick)
Operates using 2 x 9V alkaline batteries (not supplied).
Operates one Toro latching solenoid per station and one latching solenoid equipped master valve
Maximum distance between controller and a latching solenoid using 1.0 mm2 (AWG #18) sized wire: 60 m (197')
Controller is compatible with all Toro valves accepting latching solenoids (model DCLS or equivalent) and select competitive valve models/latching solenoids
Accepts Toro TRS RainSensor and other wired rain sensors
Weight without 9-volt batteries: 672 grams (23.3 ounces)
12.6 x 14.5 x 4.9cm
5" x 53/4" x 115/16" (H x W x D)
Operating temperature: 0 - 60C (32 - 140 F)
After the station wires are connected, remove the battery compartment waterproof cap and take out the two 9VDC connectors.
Attach two 9VDC alkaline batteries (not supplied) to the battery connectors, insert them into the battery compartment, replace the battery compartment cap and turn it clockwise to its locked position. It is important to add or change batteries with the controller in a dry condition. If moisture gets into the battery compartment, it can lead to deterioration of the batteries.
Note: When the controller powers up, it sends an “Off” pulse to all the solenoids so they are calibrated for proper operation. This is why the solenoids should be connected prior to attaching the batteries. If it is desired to program the controller prior to installation, attach two 9VDC alkaline batteries, program the controller and remove the batteries before field installation.
The DDCWP will respond to a Toro, TRS wired Rain Sensor™. Cut the yellow looped wire from the controller, and using waterproof connectors connect the two wires from the rain sensor to either ends of the yellow controller wires.
The controller will respond to any normally closed (N.C.) rain sensor. Follow the manufacturers installation instructions. Activation of the rain sensor cancels irrigation programs until the rain sensor returns to a closed status.
NOTE: When irrigation is suspended due to the rain sensor, the display shows: and the rain icon is displayed.
