* Simple to Set Up
The 6-Station Sprinkler Timer has seven push-button keys for set-up and program entry. But the heart of the timer is the rotary dial, which makes it easy to see which function is currently selected and/or in which mode the timer is set to operate.
Although the unit is AC-powered, the integrated battery compartment allows you to insert two AA batteries (sold separately) so that you may program the timer prior to installing it in its permanent location.
*Easy-to-Read Digital Display
The large LCD shows the time of day and indicates many of the programming settings. The display is completely interactive with all other controls.
*Non-Volatile Program Memory
If the 6-Station Sprinkler Timer loses AC power, the timer programming will not be lost. After AC power returns, the timer will recall the last program into memory and there is no need to re-program. If the power is lost and the back-up batteries are dead or missing, you’ll only have to reset the time and date. All other programming settings will remain.
The 6-Station Sprinkler Timer comes with a convenient remote control that works from up to 200-ft. (60m) away. For example, you may initiate a manual watering cycle of 2, 10, 30 or 60 minutes for all or any individual station — without interrupting the timer programming. The remote also helps with testing during installation or maintenance. Remote requires a 9V battery (sold separately). Read more
