Galcon GAECS900208 8 Station Modular Irrigation, Fertigation & Lighting Controller, 24 Stations
The Galcon 800248 AC 24-8 is an Indoor or Outdoor Irrigation, Fertigation and Low Voltage Lighting Controller. Shipped with 8 stations on board, this controller can be expanded up to 24 stations in the future with the use of the optional 4 station expansion modules (GAEC14203P0). The 800248 AC 24-8 brings programming flexibility to a new level by offering the option to operate each station independently or (if preferred) to operate groups of valves in 3 (A, B and C) weekly or cyclic programs. In addition to irrigation, this controller features special programs for Fertilizer injection as well as low voltage lighting, pond or other applications.In weekly programs, days of the week can be selected with up to 4 start time for each daily program. Irrigation duration can be set from 1 minute to 9 hours and seasonal adjustment from as little as 10% up to 190% of duration is easily set.
In cyclic programs, irrigation duration can be set from 1 minute to 9 hours every 1 day and up to every 30 days.In addition to Irrigation programming, an independent Fertilization Valve programming can be assigned to individual valves by a percentage of run time. This means, that if irrigation on Valve 1 is set for 30 minutes and fertilizer is set for 10 minutes the fertilizer valve will start after 10 minutes of irrigation and will stop after 20 minutes of irrigation.Rain Delay function allows for a programmable "rain off" period up to 240 days.The 800248 AC 24-8 also has an independent program for low voltage lighting, pond pump or similar low voltage application. This program is completely independent of irrigation and will operate even if the controller is set to a rain delay or irrigation programming is erased. A separate relay is required to operate the low voltage equipment and it is not included.
