Hunter announces new Pilot golf central control system


February 11, 2013
By Mike Jiggens

Pilot is a new central control system from Hunter Industries designed
exclusively for golf course irrigation control. The new system is
available as an above-ground system using conventional field
controllers or a below-ground system using decoders. The new equipment
can be used stand-alone, or networked into a whole system with Pilot
central control software.

In addition to central control software, Pilot products include field controllers, decoder hubs, and decoders. The field controller manages up to 80 stations, and the decoder hub can control up to 999 stations.

According to product manager Randall Mills, "The Pilot system was designed to enhance serviceability and reliability, two major issues for any golf course manager. From sophisticated troubleshooting tools built into every component to a clean design with no exposed electronics or loose wires, no detail was overlooked in the creation of the system. The colour-coded, modular layout includes unique technology to eliminate the frustration."

The Pilot system also aims to please from a service standpoint. The only service tool required is a No. 2 Phillips screwdriver, which Hunter highlights by including one with every controller.
