HOW THE SENSOR FEATURE WORKS
The IBOC Plus is equipped to operate with an optional rain sensing
device, commonly called a “Rain Switch,” to prevent automatic
watering during rain.
The rain switch is a simple device, typically installed on a roof
overhang or stationary structure exposed to rainfall and full sun, and
shielded from irrigation spray. The rain switch wiring is connected to
the sensor terminals provided on the controller terminal board.
Rain sensor operation is selectable by program, enabling sensor control
to be allocated to specific watering programs as needed.
When rain occurs, the switch senses the moisture and causes the
controller to terminate all output to the field. The electronic
programming portion of the controller is isolated from the rain sensor
switch, and continues to operate as programmed. When rain stops and
the rain switch returns to its normal state, field output is restored,
enabling watering to resume as scheduled.
