Hunter Node Battery Operated Controllers
For isolated sites or power-restricted areas, the Hunter Node is the smart, reliable solution. The Node mounts to a valve solenoid quickly and easily, and without screws, drills or additional wires.
The unit's solid construction and waterproof exterior ensure it can handle the harsh environment of a valve box. Once placed in a valve box, the Node is operated by one or two 9V batteries, which provide standard or extended power throughout the season. Along with exceptional reliability, the Node features an easy-to-program LCD screen, the ability to control a Master Valve, and uses standard Hunter controller programming with 3 programs and 4 start times per program.
The array of programming options and rugged reliability make the Node a compact, but powerful irrigation controller with the flexibility of battery power.

Solenoid wire length up to 30 m (18 AWG)
Warranty period: 2 years
The Solar Panel eliminates the need for batteries and provides maintenance-free operation by harnessing the sun's energy or ambient light to fully power the controller 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for years on end. This "eco-innovations" alternative is more environmentally friendly and saves on battery costs.
A manual back-up utility that stores complete controller scheduling and setup information in back-up memory. This allows the saved watering schedule to be restored at any time. This can be used to set a controller back to its initial settings after tampering or at the beginning of a new season.
This feature allows for quick adjustments to irrigation run times through a percentage scale. During peak season, set the seasonal adjustment to 100%. If weather conditions require less water, enter the appropriate percentage value (i.e. 50%) to cut down irrigation run times without the need to adjust each station in the program.
Node is compatible with hard-wired Hunter Clik sensors and other micro-switch type weather sensors for enhanced efficiency.
Rugged shell casing makes the NODE waterproof up to 3.5 m (IP68 rated)
