The LEIT-RC2 is a two way wireless remote control handset. The LEIT- RC2 is part of a solar powered irrigation control system that combines the remote control handset and the LEIT 2, two stations ambient (solar) powered irrigation controller. The LEIT RC2 remote control handset is an advanced wireless device that is used to communicate with up to 99 LEIT-2, two station controllers from a distance of 300’ line of sight. The LEIT RC2 handset has a sophisticated and intuitive icon-based software used to review and program the LEIT-2 controllers. All controller functions are controlled and reviewed by the RC2 remote handset. After installation, no further visits to the controller are required. The LEIT RC2 handset included a 3.6 V, 750 milliamp nickel metal hydride rechargeable battery and a wall-mounting charger
Imagine being able to program up to 99 controllers, operating 198 valves, from a distance of 300 feet (100 m) line of sight. Imagine using a hand-held wireless device about the size of a cell phone and send and receive any information needed. What if these valves are triggered by high efficiency “smart” controller that require no battery or AC power supply. Now imagine being able to install these valves wherever there is a water supply and not having to pull any field wires whatsoever or replace any battery. Now this is a reality with DIG's Corporation LEIT-RC2 remote control handset and the LEIT-2 ambient light (solar) powered two station irrigation controllers. The RC2 remote handset has a large LCD display with sophisticated and intuitive icon-based software used to communicate with LEIT-2 controllers. All of the controller operations are controlled via the RC2 remote handset.
THE LEIT-2 WIRELESS HANDSET ENABLE TO OPERATES UP TO 99 CONTROLLERS
Dig’s Corporation approach to the LEIT-2 was to provide a wireless technology handset’s with a quality in a manner that can captures the end user perspective. Once the LEIT-2 controller is installed there is no further reason to visit the controller. Using the LEIT RC2 handset, communication range can be establish from up to 300 ft line of site, allowing the user to see any controller data via a 2-way communication. By giving the end-users a new simple-to-use devices with many programming features that can allows to connect to, and find any controller on the grid, we enable to offer our customers a high-quality, irrigation device that can be used in any application on any location around the world.
THE LEIT-2 OUTSTANDING FEATURES
The modular architecture of the LEIT-2 system means that no area is too small and or purpose is too large to benefit from the system's outstanding features. The LEIT-2 can function either as an individual wireless controller or as part of a large installation. Some of the features such as global stop command that turn off all the valves within radio range, upload and change programs for up to 99 controllers, communication via 99 saved addresses, alert you if changes are made with identification of the handset that made the changes, alert you if controller has a short or open valve, status report for each controller with current running program information, schedule a temporary manual run, test or skip any valve, budgeting with 10-200% in 10% increments per month, a rain delay for up to 99 days with automatic restart and last, program duration from 1 minute to 5:59 hours in 1 minute increments with 2 programs and 4 start times per program for each valve. In addition a few special features are available to turn any month off and event off using multilingual software in English, Spanish, Italian, French, German and Portuguese
Installing the LEIT-2 system required the following components:
Installed in any location with no AC power or battery needed
1. LEIT-2: 2 station ambient (solar) powered wireless controller with two yellow wires for rain sensor connection and four wires, with each two wires, red and white used for connection to each valve. Suggestion: We recommend that the user should reset the controller using the 2 yellow wires and a 9 volt battery before installation due to the fact that this type of controller has no backup batteries.
2. LEIT RC2: Remote control handset is used to communicate with up to 99 LEIT-2 controllers Suggestion: when connecting to the LEIT-2 controller for the first time and assigning a controller ID , assign any number from 2 to 99
3. Up to 2 DIG series 3/4”, 305DC.075, 1” 305DC.100, 1-1/2” 305DC.150 and 2” 305DC.200 plastic in-line globe valves with latching solenoids are designed to operate with our LEIT-2 solar powered controller (see our valves section under DC valves). Suggestion: Connect the solenoids red and white wires to the controller station # red and white wires using water proof splice connectors
4. Mounting the LEIT-2 controller required one of the mounting configuration provided:
a. Valve box dome mounting model 30-830 allows mounting the LEIT-2 controller into any valve box. The mounting dome included a simple instruction of how to install it to the box
b. Valve clip mounting attachment with 4 screws model 30-831 allows to clip the controller and to mount it to one of the valve solenoid. This installation is suggested when the valves are above ground.
