Outdoor growers in intermittent or low rainfall areas require irrigation controllers. The controller input is usually from a tipping bucket rain gauge or a flow sensor.
Control requirements: If more than X amount of rain falls within a programmed time, the irrigation cycle is interrupted. If Y amount more rain falls within the programmed Off-time, the irrigation cycle is interrupted for a longer time.
The DI-60A controller with alphanumeric display uses the Tiger 320 Series register reset functions to reset timers and relays during setpoint activation and deactivation . Text messaging allows ease of control and setpoint identification while all the control parameters are easily programmable by the operator. Timer reset functions are automatic with optional manual override. A macro can be installed in the controller to further enhance the control functions.
