Hunter rolls out new controller, Pro-Spray PRS feature

February 16, 2018  - By

Hunter Industries revealed its ACC2 Decoder controller.

It comes with all the benefits of the ACC2 Conventional controller, but it’s expandable to 225 stations, Hunter Industries said.

“For the ultimate reliability in large-scale commercial irrigation management, the ACC2 Decoder is second to none,” said Dave Shoup, product marketing manager for Hunter Industries.

The controller’s two-wire functionality allows for flexibility and makes for easy field installation, while its intuitive Flow Manager takes advantage of sophisticated irrigation designs, watering as much as can be safely operated in the shortest possible amount of time—up to 30 simultaneous solenoids, according to the company.

Designed to manage Hunter ICD decoders on expansive properties, the controller also offers built-in flow monitoring for quick diagnostics of abnormal flow conditions and accurate histories for up to six flow zones, ensuring maximum landscape protection.

The product’s design features a full-color, backlit LCD display in a reversible facepack that operates all functions in either position.

The company also presented FloGuard, a feature for select Pro-Spray PRS models that reduces the flow of water as soon as a missing nozzle is detected.

It’s designed to save water and prevent landscape erosion, according to Hunter.

“FloGuard is a simple yet powerful tool that shields landscapes from the destructive consequences of missing nozzles,” said Kelsey Jacquard, product manager for MP Rotators and sprays.

When a missing nozzle is detected, FloGuard reduces the flow of water from the riser to 0.5 gallons per minute (gpm) and immediately generates a 10-foot tall indicator stream.

Water flow from a riser with missing a nozzle without FloGuard technology can range between 6 and 30 gpm, said Hunter.

During system flushing, the blue flush plug prevents the FloGuard feature from engaging.

The optional, factory-installed feature is available for the 4-inch, 6-inch and 12-inch Pro-Spray PRS models with a check valve. Options include potable and reclaimed water models.
