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.
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.
