Decoder Controllers

Decoder Controllers

Decoder Controllers are commonly used in commercial applications.  Two wires are laid in the area to be watered and solenoids are added with a decoder where necessary.

The decoders have an individual address and are programmed back at the controller as normal.  The 2 wire system means much less cable than conventional systems and less cable means less chance of lightning damage.  Given that each decoder has an individual address it is very easy to add extra solenoids to the system.

Debris like silt & dirt from recycled water is the most common cause of blockages of failures in irrigation systems.
