Heron 8 Station Multi-Wire Controller 

  • 8 Stations
  • AC Controller 
  • Heron's controllers are menu driven, making them intuitive and easy to use. To simplify the creation of irrigation programs, valves can be individually named.
  • Because every site is different, Heron irrigation controllers can be configured to match the needs of each installation.
  • You can specify the number of programs, the type and number of automatic starts needed. You can enable or disable the software features required.
  • Simply select the features you want from a list of options. The features will then appear in the controller’s Main Menu for you to use. 
  • Mi controllers can be integrated with sensors and dosing systems.
  • Irrigation can be controlled by light, rain, temperature, humidity, wind speed, wind direction or flow meters. 

Hardware Specification

  • Compatible with any 24V AC solenoid valve.
  • Option to operate DC valves.
  • Output current 1.2amps (resistive) with electronic overload cut-out.
  • Output current is measured which can be displayed for diagnostic purposes.
  • Two pump starts.
  • Three digital inputs.
  • One socket to connect additional cards
  • Two sockets for connecting additional output boxes.
  • One data conector to connect to a PC or GSM mobile phone module.
  • Designed to operate in an industrial environment. High electrical noise immunity, can withstand a 2.5KV spike.
  • Battery backed up real tme clock. Real time clock immune to high electrical noise.
  • All outputs protected against electrical surges exceeding ANSI C62 surge suppression standards.

Program Specification

  • Up to 60 independent programs.
  • Run up to 6 valves in parallel as standard
  • Possibility to run up to 12 valves in parallel with additional output cards.
  • Up to 64 automatic starts.
  • Daily, weekly and variable period automatic starts.
  • Automatic starts can be set to run on odd or even days.
  • Valves can be individually named e.g. Lawn1, Bed1.
  • Valves can be specified to run on a time or volume basis.
  • Valves can be allocated to one of five water meters.
  • An optimal flow can be entered for every valve.
  • A minimum, maximum and pipe break flow rate can be specified for each water meter.
  • Valve times can be set from a minimum of 1 second to 10 hours.
  • Valves can be allocated to an irrigation group.
  • Rainfall can be monitored over 1 to 4 days, irrigation programs can be reduced by 25%, 50%, 75% or 100%.
  • Manually percentage adjust (0% to 250%) .
  • Separate manual percentage adjust for programs and valve groups.
  • Continual cycling of irrigation programs between specified time of day. Delay between cycles can be set from 1 minute to 9 hours.
  • Manually start an individual program or valve.
  • Manually start multiple programs.
  • User can select which program to stop or manually advance if multiple 
    programs are running.
  • Pump pressurization time can be set in minutes and seconds.
  • Programs can be configured to start, stop, freeze or manually advance on a 
    remote input.
  • Up to 10 remote inputs can be connected.
  • Programs can be allocated up to 5 pump starts or master valves.
  • Valves can be defined as ‘special outputs’ to control external devices e.g. fill a pond, switch lighting.
  • Valves can be defined for back flush use.
  • Irrigation programs can be inhibited by wind speed or wind direction.
  • Programs can be integrated with light, rain, humidity, temperature sensors.
  • Irrigation can be controlled from a calculated evapotranspiration (ET) value. 
    The ET value can be calculated using a variety of sensors depending upon the required accuracy.
  • Programs can be attached to a dosing recipe.
