A Fixed-Station, Cost-Effective Control Choice With Easy Operation and Installation

Focused on cost-effectiveness, the Hunter PCC is a residential controller with 6, 9, 12 and 15 station models. With a multitude of features the Hunter PCC is designed with the goal of offering homeowners an efficient, easy to use controller. The Hunter PCC is also compatible with the Hunter Solar Sync, install the Solar Sync and the conversion to a “smart controller” is complete. The PCC will now regulate run times based on local weather conditions.

Additional options include the Hunter ROAM remote, allowing wireless activation up to a thousand feet.

    • Easy Retrieve Memory

    • 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.
    • Programmable rain delay

      The Programmable Rain Delay feature incorporates a user specified number of days to keep the controller in the OFF mode, then allows for the system to automatically revert back to scheduled irrigation. This will prevent watering during an extended period of inclement weather, but will resume watering automatically without requiring a return visit to the controller. The controller displays the number of days remaining before watering resumes.

      Quick Check

      The Quick Check feature makes a quick diagnosis of field wiring issues easy to access with the push of a button. Quick Check displays an ERR message when a field wiring short is detected on a particular station number.

      Non-volatile memory

      This feature offers protection against unreliable power, retaining current time, date, and program data.

      Automatic Short Circuit Protection

      Automatic short circuit protection is a feature found in all Hunter AC powered controllers. This feature automatically detects electrical faults, which are typically caused by wiring issues. Stations that have shorts detected are skipped, allowing watering to continue for those stations where faults are not detected. There are no fuses to blow or internal circuit breakers to trip that can result in completely disabling irrigation.

      Seasonal Adjustment: Global or automatic updates with Solar Sync

      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.  This model offers two different ways to use Seasonal Adjustment to reduce water usage: Global and Daily.

      Global: The Global option provides a Seasonal Adjustment percentage to all station Run Times on all of the controller’s Programs.

      Automatically Daily: With the addition of a Solar Sync ET sensor, the controller has the ability to implement daily adjustments based on measured local weather.

      Delay Between Stations

      A delay in watering between individual stations as the controller moves from one to the next. The delay may range from a few seconds, to permit slow-closing valves time to shut down, or much longer to allow pressure tanks, etc., to refill or recharge.

      Sensor Programmability

      The ability to specify which program or stations will be shut down in response to a specific sensor alarm. This allows stations or programs unaffected by the sensor to continue automatic operations.

      Non-Water Days

      Day(s) of the week can be programmed Off in advance, so that irrigation does not occur regardless of program interval schedules. For example, if the gardener mows the lawn on Saturday, the Non-Water Days feature allows Saturday to be programmed Off, so that watering will not occur.
