Two-wire decoder controller new for large commercial, industrial irrigation sites

K-Rain Manufacturing has released its new two-wire irrigation controller in stainless steel cabinetry.

Following the recent August release of the Sitemaster two-wire decoder controller, the product is now available in a stainless steel cabinet or on a stainless steel pedestal.

“After our successful test market launch, the demand for a stainless steel models was too significant to delay,” Rick Hall, market development director for the company, said. “The market both nationally and domestically was clamoring for the K-Rain product.”

The SiteMaster offers a 99 zone capability and is designed for large commercial, industrial and residential irrigation sites.  Unlike a conventional controller, the SiteMaster uses a single two-wire communication path and addressable decoders to control valves, pump starts and flow sensors. The advantage is a higher zone/station capacity and decoders can be placed at great distances away from the controller – up to 2.8 miles away with a fully loaded 99 zone system. The result is savings on wire and installation labour since all the valves share the same two wire path.

“Easy set up and advanced diagnostics are what set the SiteMaster apart,” according to Chip Kah, K-Rain president. “The large display screen, full keyboard and an easy programming dial make setting and operating the SiteMaster simple and intuitive.”
